Nice one Brian! I knew you couldn't stay away from a 950 for long.

A squirelly, one wheel up in the air, hill climb? Big air? LITTLE air? Come on guys, use it or lose it...

Doooood! You need to chill. Take in the scenerary... smell the flowers.... relax a little. All in good time grasshopper. All in good time.

Listen, this bike is so much fun, it's hard to stop for photos. But here's one from the Pine Barrens of New Jersey yesterday:



I've got about 1300 hard miles on the bike, and it gets more fun every minute. I've totally toasted the rear tire already (the original Karoo) so I'm looking for a better replacement. Need more traction in the dirt! Any suggestons?

Another action shot from yesterday, care of Jack Splash:



later, barry

p.s., yes, that desert racer looks pretty promising. Can't wait to see the final version. And I want to know where I can get the light set up and brackets.

Looks like you're riding down an unpaved road that a Harley could probably get down.Hardly "action" is it ?

I fully understand your stance Kev. My many years of riding in the BC hills has provided me with a multitude of fine situations for which to smell the mountain blooms and make friends with the local marmots and what not. After a fast and slippery tear up a blown out logging track/river bed/trail, a fellow can enjoy nothing less than the smell of the flowers and the taste of lukewarm water from the ol' camelback. I guess what it is that gets me so fired up is that after owning and riding a KTM 300, a Transalp, and a DR 650 over the years, I've always lusted for the perfect synthesis of these (and other) machines. I can't say if the SE is that bike, but it sure as shit looks the part! I need serious action shots to confirm one of my life's ambitions. I think I need one! Ride like you gotta Kev. Don't mind my overly-enthusiastic desires...Cheers.

Well, in another thread, I likened my SE to my friend Walter's Transalp, just a modern version of a decent V-twin dual sport. I think the engineers at KTM did a pretty good job of putting everything they could in this package. Remember, though, that a Dual Sport is always a compromise of sorts. If it can ride long distances, it's going to be a little heavier then the craftman's tool that a RFS racing engined enduro is going to be.

And be patient for those action shots. Some of us have just gotten this bike, and we have to break it in, get used to the weight, and then go thrash it. I've already dropped mine at 30 mph in a mud hole, and pictures are on the way. Damage was minimal. A little scratched vinyl. The beauty of this bike is that it was meant to be crashed. Plastic body panels and gas tank, with vinyl panels on all the contact surfaces, that are easily replaced. NO PAINT!

later, barry

Last time I checked, I had gotten my bike so that I could enjoy riding it where I wanted to go. That includes asphalt twisties, graded dirt roads, cross country trips, sand, mud, double track and single track. I don't remember reading in the manual that I was supposed to be performing for YOUR entertainment and amusement. So, sorry that my photos aren't interesting enough for you. Perhaps you should tune into the X-games on T.V.? And watch people get seriously injured for your entertainment?

By the way, is that really your name? Fag Net?

No worries man. Just jerkin with you a little. If you want action shots, consult a certain Mr Giovanni Sala. He is the man to look up to:
