    That's what I use for a wallpaper and yes, it's mine. A fantastic machine, I do agree the Wings are a bit noisy for commuting though. They were on it when I got it. I don't mind too much...

    Mine (03 Silver 53000K's) and My Brothers The Other one (05.5 7000K's). The first time they ever met. I was in Victoria working so I made the Easter dash down to the western districs to see the folks, & brother and his Famaily. This was the first time that Mick and I had ridden these old stomping grounds together for 20 years. It gets no better than that.

    Got a phone call from my KTM dealer yesterday wanting to book my Adventure in to get the rear brake caliper done under a recall.. Something to do with replacing the pistons inside the caliper..

    Anyone else had issues with the rear brake other than it squeeling like a b*tch??

    Yeah, mine locks up when I stomp on it along with grabbing a handful of front to avoid that fool cage driver that just pulled out in front of me. :lol3

    Interesting that the Adventure would get the call in but not the SE, I thought they would be running identical components in most instances..

    Booked in for Monday so will post what it is that needs replacing and why..
