...when you walk down to the garage with 5 bikes in it that are street legal for the ride to work and you take your 950... every morning.

You leave your bike at a friends house for a week and let him ride it, the next week he sells his KLR and Triumph, flys a 1000 miles to ride home his own 950

Unless it's a different flavor 950... SM, SE, different setup, etc.

Your husband buys you a 950, but you still wear the BMW t-shirt that he bought you last year so he doesnt feel to bad about his GS.

"Yeah yeah, they handle like a battle ship - see you at the other end of the twisties Hun."

(my laptop was confiscated for that last bit)

You know when........

You are on the hard pack and a man in a Toyota truck ask me if I knew that my bike would throw rocks over 50 feet. I said, you never got that close to me and he said it must throw them over 50 feet then.
