     Hello everyone. I picked up my 950S on Friday, coming from Triumphs. Very happy with the Duc. I went for my first ride (150 miles) on Saturday and came home very excited about the future! Even the flat tire and nail in the sidewall I discovered the next morning aren't bringing me down (well, not too much anyway). Hopefully all the bad luck is now gone up front.

    What was your last Triumph before moving to Ducati?

    Welcome , sorry to hear about the nail. Quite a few on this forum had Triumph Tiger 800 like myself and changed to 950. Never regretted it ,the bike is superb and above all fun. Just wait until you run in and open up above 6000 rpm the sound is intoxicating.

    Before the Ducati I had a 2017 Triumph Trophy SE, and before that it was a 2014 Triumph Explorer 1200. I gave up on the Triumphs. Loved the bikes, but part supplies and customer service made sure I did not come back. I do have a great dealer to work with though, they have BMW, Triumph and Ducati. So..... Ducati over BMW? Yes, I rode them both. It was not even close.

    Hi David S
    You say that you have the new 950 s, I didn't think it was available yet as I would like to test ride one.
