Yuuup... and I still spin tubes! I'm currently working on an SE specific tubeless setup that will solve our traction needs once and for all.

It's loads better in the dirt than a 908. But rummors of it's use on the street are true; it's a handful on the tarmac and I wouldn't recomend it for such use.

This isn't much of a picture of a Super Enduro, even though it is a picture from behind the bars of one.

This picture is more of what I think makes this bike unique, fascinating, and a bit frightening to mere mortals like me.

Looking at a view like this from a SE seat, the thought pops into one's head "I wonder what it is like to do 100 mph down this dirt road?"....

I've also thrown knobs off of them on the street once they get hot.

I've stripped many a knob off the Chinese version, but the USA made ones seem to hold up very well. They're just slippery as hell on the pavement when new.

Thanks for the memory. After the left turn ahead, the 950 got up to 105/110 and there was a little roller that lifted the front end, and a thrill that I can still remember 5 years later. What a great past time!!!!!
