New addition to the gee-rage

Sold off the 599 and picked this scooter up this past weekend. Pretty "comfortable" for a SS.

The motor in this thing is very flexible. Handles fairly well, too.

Nice!

I don't know if I can ever ride a SS for a daily rider. I sat on my buddys GSXR 1k......nu uh, no way dude. Are the ergos on the 954 a little more relaxed?

He sat on the viffer and said "Damn this is crazy comfortable!"

the SS bikes of that area were great, way less hunched over... probably somewhere in between a stock 9er and todays sport bike. Great lookin bike!

They also made proper streetable power... none of this crap like todays SS that have no balls below 8k rpms.

I put over 30,000 miles on a 929. The problem with that bike was the wide tank coupled with not much leg room. My hips and legs were hurting after a couple of hours. My narrower 600rr was much more comfortable.

Those bikes are awesome performers and demand respect. Mine impressed me every time I rode it. However, it was not into "it's own" until you were going 80 mph. Then the suspension, engine and riding position made sense. Wasn't hard to get a knee down with.
