Eric, I have been riding for 42 years. I have lost track of how many motorcycles I have owned. My 950 is the BEST Machine I have ever owned. It will run circles around most machines on pavement. Handles even technical singletrack offroad. Is All Day Comfortable. And if I could only have one bike this would be it.I have a Hayabusa (And I am picking up a SuperMoto (YZ400) and an Italjet Dragster this month as well) but I know the Katoom will continue to be my favorite.I never get tired of messing with it. And KTM stands for "Keep throwin Money" not for repairs. For Mods. I absolutely Love this machine.
Topes never seem to make me go any faster.
