    When you didn't know the 990 was fuel injected and dont care!!!

    When you use to bench ride adv all the time then you got a 950
    and not sure what your password is on adv!

    You're headed to the west coast for 10 days and you have all your shytte packed and really ONLY want to take her. So you go to the garage and talk to her and tell her that you'll miss her. Then your fiance catches you and gets mega-pissed.:rofl

    Yep.. Just happened. :lol3

    You spot another oil leak and pray it is the oil pressure switch and not the base gasket, but haven't had time yet to strip off the tank and airbox to find out, (fingers crossed).

    When browsing parts online you need several attempts to find your bike in the drop down menus. Dirt bike? Not there. Street bike. Nope. Cruiser? HELL NO! Wait a minute, what do you mean an 06 950 adv does not exist? :hmmmmm

    When you sell it and buy something else, only to buy another 950 because there's else nothing like it.

    Everybody (even other KTM owners) say it's too tall and all you can think or say is...

    I DO NOT CARE (even at 6-1)

    There is no bike that can match it - on road, off road, it doesn't matter which.

    I am, however, embarrassed by the Heidenau's I mistakenly spooned on and can't seem to wear out. Absolute rubbish off road, but I'm too cheap to throw away. Give me a couple of more rides.
