Dark cherry in color. Has Yamaha leather saddle bags, quick release passenger back rest and Mustang seat. I would really like to put a bullet fairing on it but I am having a hard time finding parts for a 950 - the 650 and 1100 seem to be much more common.

Memphis shades batwing fairing fit well on the 950. I've found plenty of upgrades for the 950. You'll see the fairing in my avatar.

I wanted a bullet fairing too. Memphis shades does not make one for the 950, but does for other models like the Raider etc.

The batwing would be a cool look with the shortest winshield, or no windshield? (Still not a bullet fairing, I know), but then you could get the tall shield for it, for touring.

Bikerhaven.net in Arkansas was the place I purchased my fairing. I additionally bought a short and tall windshield and it still was under $600 for my 950 and it was free shipping. I didn't want a radio and it came with the detachable bracketry. I can have the whole fairing in less than two minutes, just another source you may want to check out.
