Hello from NJ
Just singed off on 2018 MTS950 white, spokes, bags, heated grips, engine guards. Local dealer is getting every thing installed. Will pick up next week. Last September I spent 12 days with my wife on the back of MTS950 while touring through the French Alps. Nice to Geneva the long way around then back through Route DE Grande Alps.
Was saving for the 1260 but the 950 seemed to make more sense and offered trail riding if set up correctly.
The MTS950 did not stop calling me since I returned it to the rental company "Holiday Bikes" Nice France > excellent.
We did 1800 miles. The bike was comfortable every day and fantastic. I just hope I will not miss the extra ponies.
Enjoy the Holidays to all.
