I love the SE... but it wasn't around in 04 when I wanted an Africa Twin killer.
Keep young all.
The SE can be 3 bikes in one (with 2 sets of wheels & tires & larger fuel tank): dirt bike, street bike, & adventure bike).
I think it is the perfect bike for retirement. Especially, if you do your own maintenance . . . Lot's of time to tinker
