    When you through one front rim per season. Only bike I've had where the back tire outlasts the front.

    You are looking at a new 990 and have no interest in trading in the 950.

    When your buddy on his GS passes you while you're doing your umpteenth water pump rebuild.

    When I decided to build a sidecar for the 950 but my friends and wife call me an idiot for messing up the best bike I've ever owned. I got the side plastic, skid plate, and gas tank off to begin subframe construction. I began to shake and get a queasy feeling. For I realized that I cannot touch this bike.
    So, I drove 1,000 miles round trip in a raging snow storm to pick up a V Strom 1,000 for the hack project. It was snowing when I picked it up and did not test ride it. I've never ridden one. I got it home, unloaded it and took it for a 1/2 mile ride around the block. I immediately determined it was a piece of shit and it's nickname came to mind; Vajayjay, or VJ for short. I can't believe anyone actually buys these road bikes.
    Fucking KTM has ruined me.

    You have to love it when the most memorable speed event for a GS rider is the time it takes to change the oil. :rofl

    I own 4 BMWs... but my 1 KTM has put more smiles on my dial than all 4 BM's together. :lol3

    When you have just finished refueling and now starting the bike up and you turn and notice three cars full of young fellas all hanging out their car windows with their phones videoing your bike Startup.

    The SE pumps into song and all ya hear is cheers and thumbs up from about 10 young fellas.

    You ride off thinking faark...
