You know when....

You warn your friends "Seriously dude, if you don't have the money to go buy one I can't let you take it for a ride"

You know you're a 950 owner when..

You tell the guy admiring the bike, "if you are interested in buying one, DONT test ride it until you are ready to buy, cause it'll be an obsession until you do."





Or... you can't sleep because you are depressed your 950 got stolen.

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

I love that!!!! I had someone put up their ice cream stand as collateral before I let them take mine. I actually was secretly hoping to cash in, the ice cream stand is a summer gold mine!!!! (Not that I wanted anything bad to happen to the rider...)

you know you're a 950 owner when... you drop your bike back a couple of gears in a tunnel just to hear it roar (and the guy in the Prius beside you wees his pants)

Just don't have a brain freeze and do it in the Clem 7 (lucky they rescinded the ticket cause I definitely was speeding).

You test ride it and you inmediately buy it...

You are a dirt rider...

You are unconventional...

You love beating BMW GS wherever you are...

You dont mind your wife calling it "the manthis"...

You smile when your wife tells "no, dont take that one, you always loose yor mind when riding it"...

You know about bikes...

you don't care how long an oil change takes, how many miles you get out of a rear tire or what it cost. You don't even worry that much about your driver licence. You are an addict. You know there simply isn't any bike out there that does what this thing does. Love mine. Wouldn't trade it for any other machine out there. It's all about smiles per mile

You Know

When on a ride with a buddy, dropping down into a valley on a forest road you pin it in 5 and hit 100 mph. Pull over for him to catch up and he gets there and says what the hell happened back there it was like a bomb went off,and all you can do is LOL
