    Considering my 950 SE was just stolen from me last weekend, this especially hits home.

    I feel for you dude and I sincerely hope you get her back.

    Thanks for the kind comments guys, I never ever thought I'd get so emotional over plastic, nuts & bolts, but I'm sorry to say I did :loco

    When you're not riding guys please keep them under lock and key!

    I park my KTM, "Tiger", right outside my window at work so I can look at it all day long.

    In fact that was one of the 'demands' I made when I took the job, I wanted a window so I could look at my bike. :wink:

    A year and a half ago I was asked who makes that? I explained it was a project from Kubota tractor. KTM stands for Kubota terra machine. I think one of the three has it figured out. They ride goldwings with lots of lights and are happy. What can you do?

    You've been on ADV for many years, and since buying a 950 you've change your web browser's homepage to Orange Crush instead of the forum you used to start with :augie

    I vote nvr2lt off the Island! But if He has beer....Okay He's back on.

    Just did some totalls. I bought a junked 06 ADV 950 in April for $2,000. Spent $1,000 fixing to put it back on the road. But spent $2,500 in farkels! I guess I am a 950 owner. The worst part is I need a another $1,500 to get it where I want it.

    I got it bad.............

    you buy a new home, not because of the great view or good price, but because of the 5 miles of twisty road, then 2 miles of dirt road that you will have to ride every day just to get to it.

    Anyone need a soda? Beer? 9 volt battery? Anything as long as I have to go to the store to pick it up.

    Today is the first day in several months that we have had an all day rain (usually gotta love the desert mountain climate) and I've gotta say.. I'M GOING NUTS!

    I've slept in my tent 21 times in the last month and a half.. camping off the 950. This is the first weekend I've been stuck at home since the snow melted.
    All I can think about is getting out on the 950 and going for a ride.

    I'm going through major with drawl. :cry

    Hi, I'm Edward and I'm a 950 addict...

    I'd rather be...
