So I started this thread in 2006 right after I purchased a new 2007 950 SE I put 5500 miles on it before really getting into off road and soon after started racing enduros. Due to $$$ I had to sell my 950 (first dirt bike). My friend fortunately was the one who purchased it, after several years she has returned into my life with an additional 400 miles The original mods are still there, fmf, swapped to floating Brembo Supermoto front brake, brp triples (need to install scotts back on it), I just added 2 into 1 exhaust as the original was kind of rusted due to exhaust wrap, added rotopax tank, and that is about it (might be missing a few things). Anyway here is a quick pic of her in my driveway

I could not resist... 950 Super Enduro's Photo Thread

I'm likin' how your SE is dirty. The rest of them (in that pic) may be dirty with coffee grounds, but that's it.

Nice trip today. Got Karoo 3 tyres but rear is wearing out VERY fast. Works fine on gravel but not much sideways grip if just slightly muddy. Also fine on tarmac but not confident pushing them as hard as a sport tyre (yet anyway). And noisy above 70mph/110kph.

Fun bike on twisty tarmac, though a bit harder work throwing from one side to the other in s combinations (surely not helped by wider adventure tyre).

All in all very impressed ny 950SE
