    New owner here - for you folks that are having oil consumption issues - how aggressive was the initial break in?

    My main issue is none of the reviews knock a point off for no cruise control. Even the Africa Twin has electronic cruise control options, at least from what the dealers could find.

    No cruise control on an Africa Twin.

    Third party cruise control is available. I would be happy enough with that for multi but there isn't even third party options afaik.

    Anyone know if there is a quickshifter and blipper for the 950?

    I thought that I saw a 950 thread over on ducati.ms that was discussing a cruise control that works on the 950.

    I've looked but may have missed it unless they are talking about throttle locks

    You are correct. In looking more closely, it was a throttle lock that was under discussion. Sorry to have led you astray.

    No cruise control? I’m aghast! What am I supposed to do if I want to rest my feet on the handlebars while rippin twisty’s? The horror...

    I guess I’ll have to get a gold wing.

    Cruise control is wonderful for long distance riding. It allows you to rest your right wrist

    Can anyone tell me the 950 top speed? Is it around 220 km/h I guess?
