My 959 has had the water pump gear failure (a known issue). otherwise the bikes have been ridden hard, put away wet, and never let me down.
    Same here, no big problems with the seven Ducs I've owned. But I never did learn to do "valves and belts" every 6000 or 7500 miles, so I was paying $$$$ to keep them going. For a long time, I found it worth it.

    Looking around at what’s out there, I’m throwing the KTM 790/890 Duke in my list of potentials. Had not considered these before, but sat on a 790 and have looked at a lot of reviews and they seem pretty appealing. Love how light the 790 feels. I’ve also been toying with the idea of selling the Scrambler since I haven’t been riding it much in the dirt since I got the 501, and in that case I guess I’d want to look at something that can tour at least fairly well. Which I guess wouldn’t be ideal for the Duke. That leads me back towards the Multistradas… Maybe that upcoming 890 SMT, but I don’t love the looks…
