For me the tell tale is the 955 has three dimples in the clutch cover. Easily spotted from a distance. Unless it's a 2006 which uses the 1050 cases. But they have cast wheels anyway so again, easy to spot from a distance.

Ming, I wouldn't worry about tires on that bike for awhile. You have atleast 1500 miles on that set of TKCs. Good looking bike and that 885 powered bike might actually be a bit lighter for dirt work.

All the silly jabbering about engine cases (just kidding)...we almost missed the real news on the last page - a 1050 with knobs? What tires are they!??! I thought there were no knobs in 17"...

TKC 80. Good tire, bit soft. Don't know what mileage will be in 180/120 sizes. About 3000 miles from the standard adventure size.

There is the Triumph RAT rally in Arkansas in the Spring. I did it in 2010 and had a great time. I was on my Sprint ST though
