    .........when you crash your 05'ADV after 2 yrs/30K and 5 days later buy an SE!

    .........when you get excited about the ease of an oil change as compared to your old ADV and the fact that you won't have to get the tools out before you can give your buddies GS a jump!



    DO NOT RIDE AN SE UNLESS YOU ARE FULLY PREPARED TO OWN ONE!

    You know you're a 950 lover when…

    But you can live with it because every time you think about riding the bike, you feel like the first date with the hottest girl around

    You know you will be a 950 owner, when you say things like this: (Quoted from another thread I posted in when I was still shopping.)

    You are planning a trip with your buddies and you say, "Nobody is allowed to come on this trip with anything larger than a 650 single." And your friends simotaneously respond, "What about you?" And you grin and say, "Unless it's made by KTM."

    or

    You spend your time trying to SHED excess crap like plastic and aluminum luggage, luggage hoops, etc., instead of BUYING a bunch of excess crap from Touratech.

    I have a client on Wednesdays that takes me 1 hour 15 minutes to get to in my car.

    When I ride the 950 I add 12 miles of dirt to my route and get there in an hour flat :ricky

    . . . . .when the guy following you all morning on a DS ride walks up to you at the lunch break and says “can I follow you after lunch too? That motor sounds so sweet I can’t get enough of it!”

    You know you’re a 950 owner when: you go away for a weeks off road riding with your mates and stunning scenery and the only photos you have taken are of you’re 950.
