Haven't had a Ducati then?
It gets worse.

The "I'm gonna spend the night at my buddy's house" -350 miles away.
The five day trip across state and back in two mountain ranges and a National Park.
The four day party/ridefest on the river near the coast.
The early afternoon sneak-outs from work, and the "Sorry, I had to work LATE today, honey" when you FINALLY come home.

The went-in-a-little-late-todays where you "had some family business this morning".
The Friday you called-in-sick and rode 500 miles and forgot to pick up coffee on your way home from "work".

I my doG, I DO have a mistress.......

If'n your location was Washington instead of Wisconson, I'd be PM'n ya for a ride.

You got rid of a TE610? That seems like the PERFECT companion for my 990.............

The TE 610 was great, but i wanted MORE! I think the moral of this story is be careful what you wish for

I LOVE MORE. But I've never had a smaller dirt bike. I think the single track I'm attempting to ride is calling for LESS!

I have a 610 and a 950.

I spent all day riding single & dual track on the 610 today.
I'm leaving at 6am to spend all day tomorrow riding passes in the mountains



...that said I'm still looking to add a small two stroke for the really gnarly stuff.. the 610 shows its size when you have to carry it over obstacles.

when you enter your workplace, go straight to have a look at the "you know you're a 950 owner when..." thread and feel jealous about all the riding others are doing cos you local weather is like 50DegC and probably 150% humidity
