Greetings from Toronto

Hi all,

Glad I found this forum. I've always had my eye on a Ducati. I currently ride a Yamaha FZ-07. My background is Italian and other riders' comments are "You're Italian and you ride a Japanese bike? Why not a Ducati?"

The FZ-07 is light and nimble, and is fun to ride in twisty back roads. Although I have taken it on weekend trips, I've come to realize that it's not optimal for longer road trips. I will get a taste of that when I head to the Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forests at the end of May for a 1 week trip.

I've looked at and sat on many of the Ducati models. The Monsters would be similar to my current ride. The Panigales ... forget about it. Even the new Supersport, although sexy looking, would still be too aggressive for myself. The Hypers don't appeal to my and the Diavel is a beast on its own. That leaves the Multistrada family. My comfort level for longer trips is something I would like to optimize.

I'm looking at taking a demo ride on the Multistrada 950 in the coming week. I sat on it at the motorcycle show and obviously feels different than the FZ-07. I'm looking forward to the test ride as I've heard excellent reviews about the 950.

I'm positive I will learn more about the Multistrada 950 in this forum and welcome any comments.

Ride safe!

Lol time to feed into the stereotype of an Italian riding an Italian bike! But seriously, welcome to the forums

Can't wait to hear your impressions of it on the roads of Toronto (I'm also a Torontonian)

Hey RedDevil. Welcome

I am from Toronto as well. Where did you do your Test Drive? Please share how did it go. I am looking at some options right now and would love to hear your opinion.
