Went to pick up the bike last night. This bike is so much fun and fits me great. Petrie Motorsports is a great place to deal w/. Wayne, the owner, is very helpfull. They still have a black one and an orange one left.

Thanks everyone for keeping me informed on what I need to do to keep this beast going. I look forward to being of some help in the future and adding to the value of the site. Long live the 950.:freaky

Thanks Lomax, So how do the blue ones compair to the "fast" orange or black ones?:lol3

Took it out last night for a longer freeway ride. This thing is a blast. I'm used to my LC4 640E w/ no windshield.:eek1 The 950 is so smooth, and stable. 85 on the 950 feels like 50 on the 640. I keep forgeting that this is a 6 speed. Having never ridden a bike w/ a windshield I don't have anything to compair it to, but it is nice not to feel all the wind preasure on your chest.

CONGRATS on one sweet lookin' ride!!!!!!! As far as the speed question goes, I suppose that your bike has enough orange on it that it should still be pretty damn fast!
HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SEE YA

Now you just need crashbars, Akrapovics, folding mirrors, some Touratech accessories, and a wornout rear tire. Seriously, very cool bike! Enjoy it!

Here's a tip. Forget the expensive seats. Buy one of the new KTM 'Gel' seats, pull the orange cover off the stock seat and install it on the 'Gel' seat. It's all you'll need!

I believe that part of the setup requires the dealer to put a few miles on the bike. If they didn't and that's your odometer, be very careful until you're certain everything works correctly!

He took a few laps around the block, and there was 1km on when I got it. Less than a mile, so when we switched it over to miles that is what it read.

I took the back roads home w/ a chase vehicle :D (my ride there) just in case. 80 miles and so far so well. Riding up to Road America this weekend for some supermoto and superbike action. Should be a great weekend on the bike.

Luggage racks will be put on soon, as will the crash bars, and 16th sprocket(I already have them)

As I am 6'4" the seat hight is great for me. I can sit flat footed w/ a slight bend in my knee when stopped. Being short must really suck.:lol3 So I think I'll keep the seat as is for a while, I like being able to move around a bit front to back w/o having the hump in the way. Swon, thanks for the tips though.

Excellent...now you need to start making plans for Creel. See the links in my signature.

Swon - how's your health? Hope you're doing ok.

CJ,

I am not the real expert on this, I am sure there is one on here,:lol3 As I just picked mine up a couple of weeks ago. As I understand it, from reading the posts here, The Blue ones are the pretty ones, The orange ones are the fast ones, and the Black ones are just all around Bad Ass.:evil

I am glad to hear you are enjoying it.
