I'm curious as to what most of you SE riders are doing for insurance on your bike? Liability only or full coverage? For me it is a difference of $17/mo ($2.66/mo liability only; $19.64/mo full). Not much in the grand scheme of things but these bikes aren't exactly a dime a dozen either. I only run liability on the EXC. What are your thoughts and thanks for sharing?

I have full coverage. I don't care about the value of the bike, but the uninsured motorist coverage is what really matters. I have 500k of UM. If some nipple head takes me out, I want to at least have some money coming in to cover my losses.

Ultimately, UM/UIM is the one coverage you need NOT skimp on- it's the only one that insures YOU for losses caused by some cell-phone texting soccer mom trying to kill ya.

OK, so I went with liability plus UIM coverage from our larger policy...that's just good advice there as every motorcyclist should/probably already knows.

That said, I put my new bash plate (from LAKEMONSTER), adventure pegs, and Scott's plus triple clamp on the SE! Still waiting on my larger tank and gel seat from PowerCell but in the mean time I'll install the CPR Bulldog air filter and remove the stock air box I modified last month...oh Indian summer hang in there! I'm installing the new wiring harness as I work through the chassis. There won't be anything to surprise me next year out in the middle of nowhere after this...famous last words...(I'm knocking already!)

Been working on the SE a lot over the past few weeks. Repairing the wiring harness but also adding bit of this and that and removing others. I'm hopeful I can have it "finished" up tomorrow night. Just have to put the carbs back on and add the CPR filter (air box removed). Hopefully it'll fire right up. Wish me luck!

There are a fair number in Colorado that I'm aware of. In addition to my two I ride with six between Denver and Colo. Spgs. Most fun you can have on a big dualie. 0 to traffic court on the street in 4 seconds on the street.

Hey JS. I see where you've been BUSY on adv lately, Just doubled your post count :) Hope all is well. Loving my SE, sending it off for a Renazco seat in a couple of weeks.

Best,

Snider

Otherwise, I would have been down for a long time (month?) without parts.

are you sure you SE guys can actually make it over the divide with your limited fuel capacity?
