I picked up the January issue of the German bike mag "Touren-fahrer" yesterday. They are running TWO 950 Adventures through long-term tests! A regular Silver and an Orange S model. The Silver bike has 32.000 KMs on the dail while the S is over 20K too. So this is more 50.000 test kilometers! Problems?? None!... Nothing, zip, zero, nada!!... Both bikes are ridden by 5 or 6 different journo's. Taken off road, long vacation rides, daily commuting etc. Hardcore enduro guys, touring heavyweights and clip-on race geeks switch keys. And the keys of both Adventures' are the first that are grabbed from their test fleet. The only critisism they have is the complicated precedure for checking the oil level. That's all. Beside this, nothing but praise and worship on every aspect of the bike and calling the LC8 engine Austria's Schwarzenegger... At the start of this test they were wondering if the euphoric impression the 950 made on the worldwide press would hold over time and much, much more KMs than a typical test-spin around the block. It does... And it gets even better with time. These are not my words but just a reflection of the article. I though it's a nice possitive addition to the reliabilty discussion on the 950. I'm very curious how the bikes will do with 50K on both dails!
