    Im surprised there hasnt been one of these yet... and much needed i think, for the most versatile motorcycle out there.

    Post up your pride & joy.

    Mods...
    H&B Crash bars, H&B Carrier system, Heated grips, GPS RAM mount, AJ Plastics windscreen, Black dog bash plate, EGO Barkbusters, PIAA 510 ATB Aux lights, HID 50w H3/H7 Headlights, Spare road wheelset 19/17 with Galfer wave rotors.

    All too easy to dump money into these... but smile per $ is up there.

    Maybe.
    Its good to have a central location for questions for them, aussie jetting, where to buy bits locally, etc.
    I know i'd like to know where to get the fittings for the facet 40171...

    this is number three for me:

    My first - a silver 2003 950 Adv
    my second - an orange 2004 950 Adv
    and my current love orange 2005 950 Adv

    I have 19"/17" wheels also and this alone transforms the bike into the most versatle bike in the world - IMO of course..

    and more - I love the 950, not much else makes you grin the way a 950 can..

    new bike coming next year I think - either a 950SE or 690Enduro...

    here is my my fav photo of my old silver lover!!

    Some of the stacks I have had would have disintegrated any tank had I not had the crash bars.

    yeah yeah, wings are an offensive, noisey waste of money.
    Acros cost more but sound so sweet and are not offensive to the public.
    If Accros sound too expensive, leavem stock, you'll offend less people
