Doc, your on brother

Pretty much what he said...We..Us...have worked hard for what we have....I personally have peaked (for now) with a '05 950 AVD. It is what I feel is the ultimate bike for me....it is ...an adventure touring machine.
HEY Almondog...GFYS...it'll probably take less time than typing in this forum!
You sound like a liberal. And don't correct me on my spelling...people with brains know what I'm saying. Joe.

If you are jealous, then work your own ass off for a few years, then buy what you want.

I personally know that I don't need any motorcycles at all. They are dangerous, go too fast, and provide entirely too much of an adrenaline rush and endorphins. No one needs to be that happy.

The SuperEnduro, though, is actually a very utilitarian vehicle. It can cruise a highway for hours (with gas stops every 100 miles!), then slip off onto a nice dirt road if you come across one. Now, isn't that the essence of Adventure touring?

I have experience racing a honda 929 at the race track. Talk about overkill. Less then 400 lbs. and 135 horsepower. Put 30,000 miles on that bike, so I have a little experience with fast. You can never have enough horsepower.

By the way, this KTM SuperEnduro is the most fun bike anyone who doesn't need one can have. That simple.

later, barry

What are the tires you put on the beast? I can't get replacements for the Karoo (T) yet (which I love for the riding I do).

Have you had the bike out yet and seen what the air turbulence is like over 70? I love those headlights, but you lose the nice aeros of the SE headlight/dash.

Again,

later, barry

Looks Sweet!! I'm picking my SE up tonight. What brand of handguards are you using? Can you provide details of the light setup? Did the Wings require jetting changes?

Posted these in my other thread but they're all I've got now... hope to get some action shots this weekend. It's definitely gotten some serious rock workouts and woods miles.
