Must say when we bought the car there were no hidden fees. It was the agreed on price, which we were able to negotiate somewhat, divided by 60 months.

Leave it to me to hole a filter that was behind a skid plate. The next one was dented so i went with a shorter filter (on a 640a)

Sitting here eating lunch at Subway. A woman of grand stature and age walks straight up to me and asks in her southern belle accent; "Is that your bike or are you renting it and if it's yours, did you trick it out yourself?"

Some kid out there has a sweet grandma!




Heading to Barber to see if there's anything to trade the 950 on.

How many mile you have on the 950? Are you seriously thinking of selling it?

In polite response: different strokes for different folks. My 650 strom sat with insurance and plate for months unridden. It did not call me. I rode an old BMW instead. I loved my old KLR way more. The weestrom had all the luggage and tricks. Who knows why? Fuel injected, six speed, brand new. Just not for me.

I sold it to my friend who puts on the Flint Ridge ride. He and his wife ride that thing all over!
I can't get enough of my G650GS. Looking at numbers it's darn near the same thing.

Are you running the KTM aluminum skid plate with the 4 screws on the bottom and one on the front above the filter?

If so, that's impressive!

To each their own.

Most people can't understand why I'm not in love with the Tenere, so I can appreciate you not loving the Strom, and Thomas not loving the Tiger.

I think it's getting close to 70k. I was kidding on the trade, Barber is full of rare sweet bikes. I doubt I'd sell it since for one, it's been "used" and not worth much and a new bike costs too much, even used. If I got a new bike, it'd be another 950 anyhow.

I agree. I've ridden bikes people hated and never understood why and hated bikes others loved. I want to try one of those Tenere's some day.

I currently ride a 1997 F650st. The bike is pretty much prestine, I have heated grips, throttle lock, the touring shield, and two givi hard cases. Bike runs and rides great, I just see that NEW shiny Strom with the extra gear FI and more HP. I have only had the BMW for a little over 2 years I don't think I have put 1,000 miles on it. I think I might not do the bike justice if I don't keep it at least for another season and truly ride it........

O so torn!
