I bought my05 950 a few weeks ago and so far I am very happy! I once saw a 690 on the track and I was very impressed seeing a plated dirtbike clear the table top. The problem for me was that I wanted a plated bike that could comfortably cruise an hour or more at 75 mph plus. I once had a plated Xr400 and it could never do that. I think the big adventure bike fits my needs perfectly. I still have my kx250 for the hardcore track, and I can use my 950 for everything else. Just this afternoon I rode it two-up on a 60 mile round trip averaging about 80 mph on the mostly freeway route with a lot of wind. It was no sweat. Plus with the price I paid for the 2005 model, it wouldn't kill me to get a scratch on the damn thing?
