You're the only rider in town to upgrade your bike to a more restrictive 2 into 1 exhaust.

You add bar risers so you can ride your streetbike standing up more comfortably.

You need spark arresters for a 950 twin.

You want knobbies that will do 5000+ miles for a roadtrip.

I know I am on my KTM when the speeds I fear most are those below 10 mph.

You take a deep breathe, turn the key on and hear the fuel pump

Thumb the starter button and hear the motor turning over and not gravel in a pop can

Relief when the clacking noise stops after a second after start up

... an oil change begins with removing the bike from the oil, rather than the other way around.

you know your a 950 owner when....

..... you stop thinking about your next bike, or what your dream bike would be.

I feel a little sad for people without one. I assume they have never test ridden one or can't afford one?
