So after I was done cruising around... Mountain Eagle and Tramontana arrived and we headed off road.

The following is a picture story about a 950 Super Enduro vs. a 950 Adventure.

I don't think any explanation is necessary


































...yes I have a high fender on order

Thanks, I was looking for yours in particular ..
Those fork guards look away better that the SX85 ones.

Cheers,
J.

I need a hug.


Tell me it's gonna be alright fellas.

Economy's got me down a lil bit and I had to let the big girl go.
A week or so ago I took a deposit from a riding buddy with the balance due
within 2 weeks.
Well he showed up about an hour ago unannounced with the rest of the money.
I've been bummin ever since I put it up for sale and didn't even get a chance to say goodbye properly.
She just left about 15 minutes ago.
I've never sold a machine that I was more sorry to see go.
There is hope however,,,,,when we get our ducks in a row I have the green light from the Missus to get a new one.
After reading some of the other threads concerning the FI bikes it looks like I don't want anything older than 2010.
I wonder when the Adventures will get an update.
Any thoughts?

Nate, I am sorry to hear you had to let the 950 go. I cant imagine losing my 990. I hope you get those ducks in a row fast so you can get back in the orange saddle.
