    Yep! Agree... :nod

    Since we practically hi-jacked this section of the forum I think we are entitled to keep the name... :D

    Compared to the competition it ain't expensive.

    Nah.. too close to the other brand. I like "the evil twin' myself.

    The 9/Fifty deserves its own forum in any case.

    Compared to what? I'd say that it's mid-priced between the Strom and the BMW. That's not too bad of a market niche either.

    950 on its own forum....
    that would be nice, for us 950 users and mostly for all the rest, which I believe are getting borred with all that 950 talking...

    How about Vitamin+ ?

    After all, this bike is a real tonic :lol3

    HELLO!

    Hello My name is Andrew and I coulnd't help but listen to you guys and I decided to buy a 950 to check it out... :D By the way i used to live in athens greece and i am wonderin how you like riding in Greece? the 950 must be a blast on the backroads. Anyway of course the 950 should have its own page and its own club of riders sharing propoganda free opinions about the bike! I think the only real question is what are we gonna call it?
    Well I hope I enjoy my 950 as much as you guys all do...

    Happy Trails

    Welcome Andrew, no more in Greece ?

    You would love the 950 here, (think of Pindos, Mprallos and Timfristos), a country full of twesties and dirt roads without any limitations :freaky

    Athen's traffic would kill your 950 though...

    Enjoy ....

    Since last August when I took delivery of my S, Big Mean and Nasty has been my 950 site. I really don't care what it's called as long as all the fun post keep pouring in. This site is great and almost as good as the bike! :ricky

    I know others have said it but here is my 2 cents. I think the riders of all the great non-950 KTM bikes are getting really board with the board! I think we should certainaly have a 950 only section. And I think the name Orange Crush is as good as any even if my 950 is blue/grey!:evil

    It would be nice to have all the 950 info in one place. I was very suprised to see the 'Racing' forum appear 2 days after it was proposed.

    Me too...but I like "parallel universe".
    I think 950 should stay with 990 coz we know we're all still crazy-awesome.
    Maybe we need a page for "S" models so we can talk about big suspension and tip-toe 1 foot-on-the-ground stuff?
