I had 3 strong friends with me and it took 10 minutes to get unstuck.
I have no pictures of one of my mate's bike... it took almost one hour to get that unstuck

Nice you mention the kickstand.
We layed the bike down to put some debris under the rear wheel. Once the bike was standing and I tried to fire it with no success, I found the kickstand opened, trapped in the mud.

Hope you understand my english...

Thumb "new" 2005 950 S

Here is the newest additon to my fleet. Bought it last July with 428 miles on it. I'm in the process of shipping it to South America then flying down and riding back home.



As soon as my trip actually starts, the "current location" link will be activated. SEMPER FI!

It was near freezing here all day but a buddy and I got out and rode for 4 hours before the snow started
(it is snowing now.. 3 inches is forecast this evening ).

In the winter we ride the "Kansas side" of Colorado (locals consider anything east of I25 to be Kansas)



I sure hope the novelty wears off with spinning up the rear tire. All I have done for the past 3 days is ride around drawing stripes at the exit of every corner. Looking at the amount of wear on the brand new 908 I just put on.. I figure I am spending about $15-20 per ride on rubber



I love this bike
Can't wait for summer!
