Yup!! I wondered how Pete managed to have a flat tyre because normally he wheelies a lot...so he definitely knows how the power comes out

A few pictures from a trip to the Beacons Rally (Wales, UK) a couple of weeks back – the bike didn’t miss a beat unlike the very unfit rider who struggled mightily in the mud and rain…lessons learned though and looking forward to the next one

At the start line as the rain began.


Wet slate and TKC’s = fun!


A happy rider to make it back in one peace.


the bike as a clothes horse


And finally even the smaller bikes struggled in the mud…

Why the HXLL did you use TKC's?

Dry creek bed...

The SE and I went and got a little dust on us. I steered her into a dry creek bed, and knew within .001 of a second that I'd made a mistake. 690lbs. + creek rock/silt don't mix. Parked her ala' Dakar style (sans kickstand)...

Hey Brown Dog, I just spent a week in CO but was on the 400 EXC instead of the SE.

Maybe next year we can get a group of SEs there at the same time
