New guy here.

Just kidding, I've just been away for quite some time. :ninja: I currently ride a 2002 Trek Fuel 98. Wrong type of bike, I know, but the Ninja is in storage up in MA for the time being. Which sucks because I live in Florida and can't even visit it.

Only 2?! What'd you get? How's the family doing?

My Ninja has basically been in storage for quite some time, and I floated away in a sea of bikelessness. I've moved a few times, out to the frozen tundra that is Minnesota, and now I live in Florida when I'm not working. I'm working for a trucking company as a truck driver, so I'm not actually home that much.

I have ridden a 950 a couple of times....it was smooth. My friend rides a 950..has no vibration issues....You need to take a ride to a farther dealer to have it checked.....if it is vibrating as much as you say, that is not normal....

I think I'm going to ride it down in spring, actually.

Until then, a new bicycle will have to do.

They did an isle of man 600RR? I never knew, any pictures? And I can't do anything patch related until around christmas, on the road until then. But I can fire the laptop up then and see if I remember how to do that stuff, lol.
