2003 950 S de-stocked.
Akra's, FCR's, custom rally tail, custom graphics and other tidbits.

Bike. Hooligan. Friend.
4.5 years, 99,000km on the clock. Wheelied, stoppied, slid, stolen, found, dropped and picked up again.

And for it's 10th birthday, the orange folks decided to go down a different path and kill production.
I think I'll keep mine. This bike is for the soul.

Cheers to you all

Not Wales fella, that was in the Yorkshire area 130 odd miles the other way

Great fun though.

The trails up that way are IMO perfect for the big 950, nice and fast as you say but enough to keep it interesting in places. Great place to ride and a beautiful part of the UK.

Isn't that where Guy Martin's from? North Lincolnshire? Does everyone there talk like an ADHD terrier jacked up on methamphetamine?

I went to the IOMTT practice week and everyone in Manchester just seemed like they wanted to drink....

That's a section of track I'd plan my route to take downhill!

I hope not, mine's only half worn out at 60k miles. I hope they either continue another couple years so there's some fresh meat out there when mine gets retired or they come up with a replacement that fits my riding.

Wife is in Phoenix for a concert with her daughter. My son and I were going to put some goodies on the bike, but he is sick. Dragging a sick boy to the shop to work on the bike is just bad parenting, so we came up with this solution.

Good thing it wasn't a Harley... you would have left an obvious oil drip trail and it would have been a lot harder to get rid of the evidence.

How did the tiles hold up to the bike? Obviously you put a towel under the center stand.

I've been thinking of tiling at least part of my garage

No problem with tile. Figure car dealers have tile in the show room, it is pretty tough but I did want to protect it from the center stand. If I was going to store a bike on a tile floor I would put something under the tires so they don't mark up the floor.
