Easter Bunny put a funny egg in my garage

Well, I ended up not finding a 919 locally within my budget. I did, however, find this scooter, which mysteriously parked itself in my garage this weekend. I'll give a ride report once I get it registered.

That is the last generation 955 model, correct?
One model before and the tank was a little too square in the back.
Of the 955s, definately my favorite. And certainly an easter egg color too!

Yes, 05 is when they started the 1050s, so this is the last gen 955. Personally, my favorite of the S3s. The 1050s had a shorter tail section and my kids like to ride with me. I feel more comfortable with the added length for them to sit on.

Nice, you must set out carrots for the easter bunny to get that in your basket.

Yes, last gen 955i S3. I happened to like this generation the best, however, I wouldn't pass on the newest generation assuming that I possessed a winning lotto ticket. I looked at a BMW R1100R, as well as a ZRX1100 that was nice and cheap, but the bike sat and would not get into gear, most likely due to air in the clutch line since it sat for a while and the current owner never rode it. The two 919's that came up were $1k over my budget, and since my budget was created from the sale of my SuperHawk and a Remington M40, I wasn't about to dig into the safe for a 919. I love my guns more than I liked the 919.

I just noticed your WV avatar. Interesting that two 'fans' happen to have Triumphs.

how could you do that... sell an M40?

Nice S3, tho. That Acropovic sounds good, and will close tha gap on a stock 1050. I like it.

It was the one gun that I wasn't attached to, mainly because I never got around to setting it up to shoot it. I have a 1962 Winchester 52-D with Redfield Olympic sights that I was unwilling to sell. That is more rare than the M40, and at the end of the day, I still love a rimfire. There will always be one for sale if I want another one. The cool thing is that a former USMC sniper bought it from me; the first range report came back with a sub-1" group at 200 yards with Lake City match ammo. I imagine that a good handload with that formed brass would do better.

Being in Canada, I don't get the attachment you Americans have to your guns.
I do like your new ride. Enjoy!
