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...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.....?
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.
