From your post you said you have about $24K into your bike,
$24K was a bit rhetorical....or would that be metaphorical?

Don't you dare ask me to add it up! I might be afraid to roll it off the pavement ever again...

But, ho-chi-momma I like it now.

Back to the 950....regarding that steering stop, mine didn't even have a bolt. Just a frame nub. I bought it used. maybe the previous owner chunked it, I donno. Or maybe he welded extensions to them. My 950's turning radius was very limited....stop to stop. I should have got out the dremmel and grinder. Keep in mind, I come from an Observed Trials background where we can turn handlebars 270 degrees! Warning: more rhetorical stuff.

Comparatively, my F800 turns circles around it.
