Not the greatest publication to be pulling an article from but GQ Magazine posted a review of the SCR recently that highlighted a lot its level of fun. Its a point that's hard to ignore especially when you see what people are saying on communities like this. So with that being said, on a scale of 1-10 how fun would you rate it? Feel free to include as much or as little information (but more is better :D )

Pretty fun even though the scr950 isn't a fan of hard corners but dragging the pegs can have its own appeal too. I recall eddie sticking pieces of flint to make the most of it.

I learned a crazy detail doing that: The steel feelers themselves threw more/longer sparks than the ferocerium flints I added. The flint sparks were much brighter, but more contained and less likely to "travel" and lead to accidental fires.
I dragged a peg after dark not long ago and could see the "flash" around the lower part of the bike. =)

... then I cut myself on the sharp feeler edge washing the bike a few days later. You play, you pay, I suppose. LOL

That might be why I see some strong emphasis on bikes like this being more tailored to casual riding rather than what we would want to do from time to time. Coming from a history of sport bikes, its a refreshing change.
