Wow quite a different Bike, just picked it up today 04 (05model) 955 in Lucifer orange.....
First thing i noticed, stiffer shorter suspension, the front wheel feels further back making for much quicker steering.
Next, power, lots of strong midrange, thought the 885 pulled well but this is something else..
however, the 885 gear changes were less notchy, will get used to that tho.
Its got an after market screen on MFA if i remember correctly with a deflector on the top, very little buffeting, much better than the standard item.
Wife aint gonna see much of me this Easter week end :hammer:

Nice one mate.

I have to wait 'till the 12th April for my new 2006 from M&S Newcastle.

Might see you up at Rothbury Cafe, if your name is anything to go by ??

Good guess, I live 2 miles from that cafe.
Is that your new silver one with the sold sticker on the screen ?

It should have been !!

I rang up at about 11am for it the other day, and they said they had just taken a deposit on it - gutted.

They rang Triumph and literally got me the last one (so they say?).

Looking forward to riding up your way. Did most of the roads up there last year. You don't (or possibly do) know how lucky you are. Rothbury to Alnwick, Rothbury to Otterburn, Hawick and the Scottish Borders, etc... truely superb roads with minimal traffic.

I'll be looking out for you.
