Greetings and WELCOME (from California)! This is a great forum to learn from. You live in a pretty state. I used to go there for work visiting many cities but mostly Missoula. Interesting to find a brand new 4 year old bike but congratulations on that. You won't be disappointed.

Great choice, James. nine-fiddy da BEST! Hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine.

My 2010 is still totally stock, btw, so can't help with personalizing and customizing. It never breaks (knock on wood) so I don't have any neat tricks to keep it running. I'm mostly here for the conversation, jokes, and meeting good people. Welcome from Dallas and I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice on the forum.

Welcome from Columbus, OH! You will not be disappointed with the 950, it is a great bike! Enjoy the wind therapy and the beautiful scenery that you will be riding through. As a flat land mid westerner pictures would be nice!
