Sure do.

It's a Truck-Lite DOT 7" LED Headlamp mounted in a 8" race-light mount using a Boatman conversion.








I later added a couple of ADV Monster LED lights:

Mr. Yellow Pig,


I believe you also have an EXC with the BD Squadron, how would you rate the output compared with the setup on your SE, with and without and the floods on?

Gotta say that I love how small, light and simple the Squadron is with the shallow housing and no ballasts, ignitors, or big frame.

Hey Speedy, That bike is looking good. We haven't talked since bike night but my friend made the move on that other 950 SE you told us about and met the guy in Nashville. We picked it up and took it to KTMworld for the once over and it's a really really nice SE. So thanks for connecting us.

Heres a few pictures from today. The first time we got them together. Now we need to get you, Voldog, and Brown Dog up for a 950 SE run.

Bang for the buck the squadron is better, but it is not DOT and does not have a Hi/Low beam. The Trucklite has a nice low beam cutoff for oncoming traffic.

I ain't in GA, but I would love to ride with a flock of fellow SE guys sometime.













Had mine for just a little over a year now. Pretty stock. Leo VInce exhaust, coated black, makes them run really cool, rejetted carbs, KTM folding mirrors, KTM 690E screen, Black Dog rack, KTM OEM pannier rack and KTM softside bags, not in the picture.

Video of me on my SE chasing my buddy on my 500. If you see the windshield, that is a whop / jump.
Fun stuff. For the record, I have ridden this trail many times. Buddy was new to the trail.

Then I led on a short tight section.
