When you look forward to putting on a new rear knob 'cause it will kick ass in the dirt. And you try to go easy on it, but it inevitably wears out. So you go thrash on your favorite twisty road and not feel guilty about burning up your rear tire.

And then you put on a fresh knob 'cause.......

really? I believe it was a good deed I performed, how could I with a clear conscious let a good friend go on riding the KLR

You know you are a 950/990 owner when you put your 400 throttle cam back on in the hope it will be easier on the back tire because you are weak weak weak and have no will power to restrain your right wrist in the dirt

He caught up to me on a red light coming into Berthoud, light turned and so did his...a warning about obeying speed limit's.

Your KLR buddies call it the "E Tool" because it leaves a trench out of every dirt road corner.

You know when you're a 950SE owner...

...when you do your early morning commute with a really dirty bike, number plates still on (with numbers of course), real knobbies mounted, transponder still transmitting, realizing you didn't do anything coming home from the race the day before.

... when the speaker (organizer) of the race goes through the starting list and wonder if the bloke with the 950 is lost or have misunderstood something

... when you plan to do a upcoming two day race, but instead of hauling it there, you want to ride it there, but realizes you won't be able to fit the spare wheels, tire changer, gear and some extra clothes on the bike, but instead of giving up, give it one more try and one more...and one more. (probably going to end up I'm leaving with the bike race ready and just bring some extra underwear and credit cards. OK, mayeb the tirespoons, so I can flip the rear for the second day)

... when your planned route instantly can change if you meet some other orange bikes (which almost never happen up here).

... you have started to order rear ties in batches of three instead of just one.

One more:

... when your collegues start to ask questions when you're going to make up the lost workhours due to repeatedly one or two hours early leave from work

... when your wife at the same time starts asking questions how long this 'working overtime' phase will last on work.

Laugh

.....when you have been pulled over by the man twice in the 3.5 months of owning the bike after surviving more than 20 years without seeing the flashing lights in the rear view.

You know you are a KTM 950 Adventure owner when you ride by a herd of cows on the back roads and all 25 of them stop chewing and stare at you as you ride by, and you can swear you hear one of them saying to the other one; "Thats a nice KTM bro"

And you know you are a 950 owner when you are riding your 180 MPH Ninja ZX10R and you remorse at not taking the KTM like you have negected your wife at home or something. And when you get home you go straight past the wife and see how the 950 is doing.

You know your a 950 owner when group of Harley owners, and a 10 year old kid walk around your bike checking it out at the hotel and you can swear they are all baffled

When your bike is being trailered to your new home abroad, and you can't sleep until they call to tell you it's arrived in one piece!

You know your a 950 owner....

.... when passing parked, expensive cars with alarm, you drop a gear and twist the throttel. It just completes the deep roaring sound with the high pitch screams of the alarms that are set off...

...you are willing to enter a "discussion" with your wife about a 950SE vs new curtains purchase.

If you see me admitted to hospital[1], tell me it was worth it.

cheers

In putting this feeling in context, it feels similar to a pack of crows that start to screech as they see a predator approaching!! That's right kids, the Katoom is in the hen house!

Jealous

I'm at the gas station, my hubby on his GS, me on my 950, and he says, "You know, every guy in this lot is jealous of me." I replied, "It's not just having a trophy wife, it's how you accessorize."
