Hello, I'm on the 950 and I love it. Granted I haven't owned many bikes in the past. I was on the Yamaha FZ6 before this, and started on a Yamaha Special 400.
There is a real lovable character to the 950, IMO. It's a joy to ride and fits me well. It's big enough to be smooth and small enough to not be a beast to move around. There are plenty of ways to customize it, and plenty accessories out there.
It was strong enough to get me across America last year, and I put 14,000 miles on it that season!
I don't think you would regret purchasing a 950, if you have the chance.
