Ride off road, slab, rip through the twisties, backroads & tour on my bikes. I also have an Alaska Trip in the works in the next couple of years, about 12k miles roundtrip. Would the SE fit this roll? I miss the excitement of the 690R & Superhawk but want the tourability of the GSA. Thinking of a 950SE with Safari tank & a raid designs fairing would fit the bill nicely.
In a word Yes The only thing I find hard on the SE is commuting through london its just got too much power and overheats to quickly. Other than that I use mine for everything. To be fair its the best bike I've owned. It sits right between the 690 and gs for being off road ridable, nice and planted and with the right gearing and the raid designs fairing a great tourer. I had 2 bikes, a tourer and 450 exc sold both bought this and never a moment of regret
525 exc rally lite project For those who own the best bike!
