Ok....so if we can get past the fact that I'm old and the reality that the SuperSport doesn't have cruise control here is how I see this bike.

Well...honestly if I was looking for a Sports Tourer I'd probably not look in Ducati's direction. That's just not what the experience is for me. I'd be looking at the Z1000 or even the new...

I believe there's a 20mm lowered seat and a 40mm lowered seat. The 20mm seat looks very much like a stock seat (shape and stitching). The 40mm seat is shaped a bit more scooped and sitting next to a...

Honestly a 6 hour round trip on my 1200 would absolutely wear me to the core. Where I've yet to ride a 959 I have ridden an 899. Just thinking about 6 hours in one day on a Panigale makes me grumpy...
