or Yellow Pig downsizes from a Big Pig to a Little Pig. I recently sold this: to get this: I've only gotten 50-60 miles in on the 690, but so far I'm very pleased. Plenty of power, very agile and much lighter than the SE. The 690 got up to 100 mph w/ no issues and seems like it will be just fine on the highway, once the seat is fixed. There are a few vibes in the handlebars and footpegs, but I suspect they will diminish once the bike breaks in. The power delivery is deceptive, you don't get the torque blast you get from the 950 engine. It's a much more linear delivery, much like an electric engine. For my kind of riding I think the 690 will fit the bill just fine. If i was going to do some long range travel all loaded up w/ lots of highway the SE would be my first choice, but for daylong off road trips with a focus on the off road the 690 will be much better. Here is what my typical ride on the SE was like: Colorado Fall Colors Off-Road Loop As I get more mile on the 690 under my belt I'll add to the tread. So far the 690 seems like a Mini Super Enduro to me. All the power and fun without any of the bloat!
