Too bad the scr950 is still under evaluation for the European market. It seemed to handle that small stretch of dirt on the side of the road pretty well too which may open up a few possibilities when it comes to road trips on the scr950.

That's what I'm most excited about. The versatility of it where you can do pretty much everything (within moderation of course)

It's going to happen eventually and hopefully it does because once the Euro market finally gets it, we'll have that much more of a chance at aftermarket parts and accessories for obvious reasons.

Pure emotion over the cool look that also hooked me in the first place. Looking forward to a 10,000 mile long-term ownership perspective to build on these first impressions. I don't expect anything other than continuing praise for this well built, low maintenance machine. Destined to be a classic. As for the Euros.....?

Yup she's a keeper but in what timeframe do you plan on doing that 10k miles in? Some guys ride a lot and others are casual...

I was thinking more like those long term test bike reviews that included reliability, economy, maintenance and other real world ownership experiences in a variety of environments. The SCR950 is too new for that, but its major components already have a proven 3-year track record from the much larger Bolt population. I have a more limited perspective as a recreational rider with only 1,000 miles to date, so perhaps those who are daily commuters or interstate tourers will be first to give feedback after the 10K mark.

Rokrover;10794(snip) The SCR950 is too new for that said:
The engine is actually even more proven than that.
It first saw duty in the larger/heavier V-Star/DragStar XVS950 that arrived on the scene in 2009. My girlfriend bought a new 2012 V-Star 950 in late 2013 (leftover bike) and it's needed exactly nothing except tires & fluid/filter changes. I bought a set of spark plugs just yesterday and with about 11k miles on the bike, was told not to expect the originals to look all that bad. Still, why not change 'em? So I will.
