Finally pulled the trigger.

I was a member here back in 2004 or so when I had my 2003 silver 950, I can't remember my "handle", and after working my way through some bikes since then last night I got myself back on the bike I have missed the most. I will be taking delivery of a 2012 990 R. I'm so stoked to be back in this saddle and can't wait to start getting miles on it once the weather gets better and I get past an upcoming foot surgery. That silver 950 was my first "learners" bike, I had ridden here and there on some of my buddies bikes but kept myself from buying myself a moto until I had the brains to not do extremely stupid things on one, since that bike I've gone through a few others and ended up swapping out a worked over 2005 Ducati Multistrada towards my new 990R. All of the bikes have been fun but I just missed that 950 a lot, it did/does everything I want to do on a moto. I hope to be adding some ride reports and contributing to the asylum as I can once I'm healed and the miles start to rack up.

I'm so STOKED.

I know just how you feel! I took delivery of my 990 R last weekend. Only got a couple hundred miles on it, and now I've got snow and ice all over the place! With any luck, I'll get out again this weekend. Enjoy the new ride!
