You know you're a 950 owner when..

You look at your clock and see its 9:50, and all you can think about is your ktm and riding.

ride the $*#(@) thing, and you'll quickly learn that the stain marks in your brooks were firstly from fear and then from ecstacy.

Today is the first day in several months that we have had an all day rain (usually gotta love the desert mountain climate) and I've gotta say.. I'M GOING NUTS!

I've slept in my tent 21 times in the last month and a half.. camping off the 950. This is the first weekend I've been stuck at home since the snow melted.
All I can think about is getting out on the 950 and going for a ride.


I'm going through major with drawl.

Hi, I'm Edward and I'm a 950 addict...

I'd rather be...



I think this post somehow fits in this thread.

You know you are a 950 owner if you:

Carry a spare fuel pump.

Missed riding with buddies becuase you are only 3 hours into the oil change and couldn't get it all wrapped up in time.

Have a battery supply house on speed dial.

Proudly announce, "I carry spare water pump parts, it's no big deal!"

Are buffet proof. What bufetting? I see your lips moving, were you answering me?

Realize that the entire clutch actuation system on your bike was merely a suggestion.

Live where the weather is bad enough that doing an all day valve job is considered a good way to spend the day.

See nothing wrong with buying a big, fast, heavy bike with soft rims.

You know you're a 950 owner when:

1) your first ride of the spring usually results in 7K rpm in 4th on a neighborhood street

2) rolling into the throttle as you exit a turn and feeling the back end gracefully step out and carve a huuuuuuuuge comma in the dirt makes you feel tingly in your naughty parts

You know you are a 950 owner when EVERY corner you've ridden since the day you bought it has been exactly like that

I don't see 990s on the trail, only 950s.
