To be honest, Ive been very very happy with the 04.
It was an experiment because I really wanted to try a 9XX.
It surpased my expections in ways I didnt imagine.
The biggest, surprisingly, was comfort! Who would have thought. :ne_nau:

I wasnt even looking for another bike but just happened to speak to Chris at Suttos (the owner) and he offered me this, last one, never to be repeated 2012 R with 476 klms (which he did) for 19k ride away as a new bike because its never been registered, only had trade plates.

Just too good to refuse considering!
I hope its a better bike that the 04 because its one hell of a bike.

So, here we go again.

All the accessories from the 950 fit straight on (bar a couple things) so wont cost much except a massive amount of time in the shed, poor me..... :lol:

The only disappointment is the suspension which Ive invested a huge amount of time and money in, some lucky bugger will end up with that :(

Already spent all night stripping both bikes and the 950 is ready for sale :(

BTW...FYI...........Suttos have one 2012 Adventure (not R), blue, last one, never to be repeated price 20k ride away with a set of Akros.....Awesome deal in case anyones is interested :D
