    I test rode the 960 today. Maybe it's the lack of big hp bikes to compare it too but I thought it pulled like a freight train. With the short seat I could ride it fine. Nothing like going for a test rip at 19 degrees.

    Part of me is thinking the 950 for simplicity sake. Less electronics and stuff to go wrong without the sky hook setup.

    "Bone chilling 59 degrees." Heated seats. Are you kidding me.

    They did that with the 749/999 of course, but these are strange times...

    I have a 2015 1200s. Bought it new and have zero regrets. I love the bike. It’s more than enough to hang with any sport bikes on the street. It’s very passenger friendly. The luggage allows me to commute and look for excuses to run errands. The only issue I have with mine is I don’t ride her as my much as I want to.

    Adam, we did like it two up for sure. I was not a fan of the ride height or parking lot maneuvering due to its height and weight... but it also wasn't my personal bike - so there's that. YMMV
