Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Those are some nice looking rides. That Vision looks heavy and not ideal for short trips or running around town so I can see where you're coming from. I ride an 1100 but the 950 is it's younger brother and they are about the same powerwise. I have to agree my bike is the ideal size for commuting and riding back roads, but I'd like to have a little more for two up highway touring.

Hope you will be as happy with your 950 as I have been. Just put 300 miles on it yesterday. Loved every minute of it.

Welcome to the forum! My better half and I each ride a 950, she has the base model and I have the tourer. Great handling and smooth out on the roadway.
