    No, the salient point is that by purchasing parts from suppliers that are the same you can reduce the cost of the units so we can afford toys. Dirt bikes are not custom choppers, street bikes with various overpriced "options" but bikes that are used and sometimes come home after a first ride looking like they had been in a war. I was stuffing my 950 Adventure down v-cuts, thru creeks, up hills, over rock ledges and ramming thru brush (that was a mistake, the screen scratched up) as soon as I had protective gear on it. Basically I took it where I took my 450 EXC. You can do that with the SE with more confidence. And, it is a lot easier to pick up. And the bike is tough. (See BeemerBoy's report on his mountainside crash on his 950 Adv. HE should have the new SE for what he rides in Asia.) Anyway, I want parts that are durable and inexpensive to replace and KTM supplies that. I am uninterested in fou-fou custom parts whose only function is to have different colors, etc.

    No offence, but PROPER would be you blasting a fat, roost-spitting air up the side of the cat track and LANDING where you are in that pic.:eek1 A friggin CBR600 could make it to that spot. A 100 hp Enduro. My god, that thing should already have bald tires for crying out loud! Anyone with one of these 'to be lusted after' beasts got some real pics? A squirelly, one wheel up in the air, hill climb? Big air? LITTLE air? Come on guys, use it or lose it...

    JediBri,
    How far can you go on a tank of fuel on the SE, or how far per gallon and under what sort of conditions?

    Nice one Brian! I knew you couldn't stay away from a 950 for long.

    Listen, this bike is so much fun, it's hard to stop for photos. But here's one from the Pine Barrens of New Jersey yesterday:

    [​IMG]

    I've got about 1300 hard miles on the bike, and it gets more fun every minute. I've totally toasted the rear tire already (the original Karoo) so I'm looking for a better replacement. Need more traction in the dirt! Any suggestons?

    later, barry

    p.s., yes, that desert racer looks pretty promising. Can't wait to see the final version. And I want to know where I can get the light set up and brackets.

    Looks like you're riding down an unpaved road that a Harley could probably get down.Hardly "action" is it ?
