Well, maybe pimp isn't the right word but we're looking forward to tearing into this '06 950 S. Bought the bike from a riding buddy who got it new in '06. He rode the piss out of it but stayed up on the maintenance, so it's not pretty but is mechanically sound. Took it over to Gresham KTM for the 18k service and everything looked really good, I then promptly put another 4k on it cruising to Montana and all over Oregon. Before we start tearing into the bike, I took it over to Mr. Ed's Moto www.mredsmoto.com for a custom seat. The stock seat, for me anyway, was incredibly uncomfortable. Before: It was all packed out, ripped and only had one seated riding position - down in that pocket. I was looking for more of a rally seat that would lift me up about 2-3" and make it easier to slide fore and aft. After: That's more like it! Mr. Ed (Don Weber) has been building really nice saddles for 30 years or so and really knows his business. He was very patient with me and even built one of his traditional saddles first, probably thinking that I would sit on his artful creation and 'see the light' of the more common 'touring' design. It was very comfortable and I almost OK'd that layout but knowing that 50% of the riding time I do is standing, we created this sort of hybrid. I personally, like the square edges as it is another point of contact that gives me familiar feedback whether standing or cornering both on and offroad. Next - we start on the tear down - there's snow on the ground here and the perfect time to find all the wear parts that need replacing. We are also going to do a vinyl wrap as the paint is flaking off and it will be way too expensive and time consuming to sand off the stock plastic and re-paint. An 18" rear wheel set with knobs, some LED blinkers, suspension freshen up, different handle bars, new SW crash bars (these are all bent), skid pan and various other bits . . . more soon.
