Welcome to the forum, and congrats on a great choice with the 950. My 950 was my first bike, and 10,000 miles later, I still love it.

Welcome to loony town. A 950 is a good ride, I am bigger than you so I chose an 1100. Ride Safe

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

I was surprised when I realized this, but the 950 is actually a bigger bike than the 1100. I'm not sure why that is, but if you compare specs, the length, width, wheelbase and wet weight on the 950 are all a bit bigger than on the 1100, and, having sat on both, the 950 just feels like a bigger bike.

Weird.

Welcome Matt. I've got about 9000 miles on my 950 and I still love it too (my first bike as well). Great choice! What color is yours?

Welcome aboard. Nice ride. Would look better if it was an 1100 and red(and so it begins).
