    Plus, he can flex his muscles at 1 hour old. Broke the tape measure when measuring his chest!

    Although I don't have a SE, I do own a 2011 Adventure that I get into the woods every chance I can get. I have been riding for over 45 years and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Yahoo

    Ok all us SE rider's just to put a bug in every SE rider's ear CJ said he might make a run of the FP lever's for the SE if there is several SE rider's 10 or 20 interested in these . He might make these fit the SE with his jig set-up, Just a head's up maybe around June if this does happen. I know I really would love a pair of them short lever's on my SE....Ride On...

    You may want to start a FP lever's for the SE thread.
    Will CJ give a senior discount (55 or older)?

    How is he doing on the oversize rotor adapter for seniors that like riding SE's on the pavement . . . . to get to the dirt?

    We seniors need every break (or brake) we can get :wink:

    Props to all you bad ass elder SE statesmen.

    I'm feeling the urge to go a bit lighter myself eventually, and can see myself switching over from my Adv S to the SE someday. Although hopefully KTM adds a lighter 750 twin to the mix.

    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:norton
