Being this is a MS950 forum I'd be surprised if anyone DIDN'T recommend the Multi. LOL I'm 63 years old, 5'7" and 230lbs; not much problem moving the Multi around or lifting it off the side stand (I installed a center stand too). I have found the 950 to be a good all round bike. The suspension is very adjustable and soaks up bumps very easily. I use it for a commuter, have taken it off pavement, and added aluminum bags for a trip from Nevada to the Yukon. Haven't made that trip yet, but departing soon. I've seen the DS and it looks very appealing, but any long distance type riding would obviously favor the Multi. I don't know what stuff is available for the DS; I would be lost without some type of side case or at least a top case. Prior to putting your hard earned money on the table I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you test ride the multi, even if it's just down the road and back from the dealer. Good luck with your decision; either bike will be a hoot!!
Work sucks; lets ride!
