    At the moment I am riding a Tiger 800 Roadie, this will be removed from my garage at the end of the 2018 season and for the 2019 season a new machine must stand in its place.

    I am down to a short list of 2, Ducati Multi 950 or the Yamaha XT1200Z, all comes down to the roadtest on Friday this week. The Yamaha has already been extensively tested , as I owned one uptil 2013 (First Edition).

    For me the Ducati is the prettiest bike of its kind on the market and I think the 950 cubic more than adequate for everything I need. The Yamaha has the advantage of a shaftdrive and although its heavier you never really notice the weight and it has grunt but the Ducati Dealer is only up the road from me :D

    It's a tough choice. I think most here would recommend the Ducati  :008:  :305:
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

     :401: Slaine. You’ve come to the wrong place if you’re after unbiased opinions. Go on, you know you really want the Ducati....you won’t regret it  :002:

    Hello and welcome
    Bikes are a personal choice and those two offer very different riding experiences - the decision is yours but just remember :-
    Red is best 😉
    Full of enthusiasm - in all the wrong places

    Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight
