Can't seem to find anything bad to say about mine. I've had my ups and downs but it's sorted now.


Pretty much the riding I do with it in Maine. I sometimes get in over my head but nothing I couldn't have two friends pull me out of.

Pickup up this 05 950s few days ago. Only downpart is the paint is chipping. Apart from the paint it looks mint!
But im happy with it, was gonna wait a few years to buy one but bumped into this S and couldn't resist.




Might spraypint it over the winter as my mate repairs car bodywork as a job. I wonder if the tank can be spraypainted tough since fueltanks and spraypaint useually don't match. :(
Anyone know if there is a way or technique todo so? The paint chips at the top taprt, a bit on the tank and on the rear side covers. Would like it in the original state as i like the colour scheme. <3

Yup, its a cheapO aftermarket one and I REALLY like it.
