    I have this nagging feeling that I should get rid of mine & be more financially responsible. Buy something cheaper & learner legal (DR is the most obvious) so my son can learn to ride.

    Then I take mine out of the garage.

    If he wants to ride he can buy his own bike.

    this bike is pretty cool, I spent the weekend in fraser and I reckon its one of the few bikes that could ride up there in nice comfort for 2 hours of slab, take off the mirrors, then mix it up on some truely deep and nasty sand with some baby DR-Z's then ride back again nice and comfortable...

    And heres pics - didnt get any photos of the really really hard stuff, was too busy picking my bike up, I reckon I dropped it about 50 times in 3 days heh

    I continually amaze myself when I think that what you see there is all I needed for 8 months of life on the road. We have been to some very amazing places together and plan to see a few more before we part company.

    I continue to treat my friend right and nurture it in the hope that I am rewarded with the same in return :feelgood

    Hey Ogmore was that you parked out side of lemonde cafe in noosa on Sunday if it was i nearly fell of the dr looking at that bike (I was on the dr650 with the 9,2 surf board strapped to the side),

    Hasting street is usually reserved for fecking stupidly load harleys and very shiny super bikes so the ktm and the few drz's that where kicking around looked very out of place.

    It looks bloody good in black might just have to put one on the Christmas list.

    yeah it was, we came in to noosa for some steaks and beer at hogs breath after a long weekend of hard riding on fraser.

    Yeah felt a bit out of place there, rolling in with a massive patrol with mud tyers and our bikes... My mate on one of the drz's is from sydney after lunch he said lets get out of here these posers are makin my skin crawl! :rofl

    Worth the purchase, great bike :)

    This was a little harder to get upright. Missed the top by an inch.

    It can be quite funny when i go down there for a coffee and park the bike up more people look at my dirty and rusty 11 year old dr than at the blinged up harleys and the porch 911's.

    And the people in the pavement cafes really love it when she starts and blows a big cloud o smoke over there $20 cheese burger:lol3

    And bloody hell do i get some glares off harley riders,
    I was told to be carfull by a friendly harley rider because of the hareley gangs with a violent side might take a disliking to my bike:dunno

    But its worth all the pretentious crap just for the chicks that walk up and down hasting street in summer.:tb

    Yes, KaTie M tells me every day how happy she is being ridden by a trim, taut, triffic old fart.

    You can almost see the smile on her face...

    Go on legless, get another one.

    A mate of mine used this sequence to illustrate why (in his opinion) the 950 SE is the ultimate forestry gravel racer... :D Complete with "heads up display" on screen mathematical data... :rofl

    100rpm?

    700rpm, for that matter?

    or is that ppm, indicating 10% and 70% saturation (of air with gravel) respectively?

    There must be some math formula that justifies why we love digging up dirt, throwing up rocks and twigs, splashing water everywhere, making cool exhaust noises and playing in mud and sand:lol3 on our KTMs. We need a PhD student to tackle this one:1drink using some form of multidimensional regression analysis and quantum theory:huh

    I can remember doing similar things with smaller toys when I was a little boy:rofl and I still love it....................and what is wrong with that?
