    ...You can't sleep nights before a trip (or just a ride) for knowing that the beast is waiting, ready, in the garage.

    When all the dirt roads around your house have huge snaking roost marks on them.

    When you giggle every time you start to put on your riding gear.

    When you can do a rear tire change in under an hour.

    You tell the guy admiring the bike, "if you are interested in buying one, DONT test ride it until you are ready to buy, cause it'll be an obsession until you do."





    Or... you can't sleep because you are depressed your 950 got stolen. :cry

    I love that!!!! I had someone put up their ice cream stand as collateral before I let them take mine. I actually was secretly hoping to cash in, the ice cream stand is a summer gold mine!!!! (Not that I wanted anything bad to happen to the rider...)
