You know you're a 950 owner when…
 
You'd rather change the rear tire than pull the crash bars, left tank and skid plate to change the oil and clean the filter screens.

Yes I know you can do it without pulling the tank and checking the oil tank screen, but sometimes its good to open everything up and peek around for problems.

Have the Minuteman 1000 next weekend and doing a thorough once over.

They say.

Wow, that things big (as they sit on their lowrider)

Wow, that thing is fast up to 110, what kind of 1/4 mile will she do?

Its very- Orange


When you first get it and,

there is gas all over the garage floor
one tank drains and the other is full and your low fuel light comes on way early
it backfires like a mofo

if you have some different lengths of extensions to mess around with you can pull the oil tank screen without pulling the fuel tank too.
