Nice siepa toned image. Next time park it next to something in context with the image style like a Crocker flat tracker!
The Sala images remind me of the response from Meoni during his winning PD on the 950 Adventure when asked by the American team how he managed to ride the 950 so fast in deep sand. His response, "Ride it like a 125--full throttle. That will keep the front end light."

Ah sweetness! You are all very lucky to be in a position to already enjoy what the SE be bringin. Doc, the Transalp was an alltime fav of mine. I started learning about the Euro style dual-sport/Dakar'esque machines in the late 80's early 90's. As you know, we haven't had pick of the run in that particular market segment here in North America until recently. Back in the day the Dakar GS (rare) and the Transalp (just as rare) were about it. I've always had a boner for V-Twins, so the TA was a no-brainer. One day I finally found one. She was top notch on fire-roads (we call em logging roads in BC), decent on-road, and after I was comfortable with her and had her shod with Maxxis 6006's, I very decidedly took that TA where I likely shouldn't have, many times over. My dirt bike skills saved the day often. The KTM SE seems like what I always wished my TA was, with a little 300EXC thrown in for good measure (beefed up forks, risers, etc.) In the end, I sold it because it wasn't quite enough road bike or dirt bike. I have toyed with the idea of owning an Adventure 950, but always found myself reading articles and posts about desert racing one at 100+ mph. Consequently, I reasoned that the abilities that that particular machine offers would find it lacking for the 'ultra long-haul' trips that I want to pursue (I got unfinished business from Costa Rica, south), and also slightly in the 'pure off-road' discipline. I realize it's no slouch when it comes to off-roading in the right hands, but you know...the SE really seems to fit the bill. I'm sure there will be a large tank available soon, as far as that goes. Anyways, enjoy your Uber Enduros! Get those crazy action shots as they come. I know the camera isn't always first priority when a fellow is out ripping, but set up a few shots for us poor sods that aren't quite in the market for one just yet. Deal? Ride on...

what a dorkYou see all those 65 year old dudes on exc bikes at dual sport rides? they dont ride them to go 100 mph, they ride them because of the light feel and the ability to go over terrain that would make other bikes puke

There are people out there fortunate enough to buy bikes like this just because they can. If manufacturers made only what we could ride to its full potential, we'd all be running about on 125's.

Manufacturers sell dreams, it's nice to see that a few can actually buy and enjoy them. Whether the enjoyment is from ownership or the ability to ride it flat out is immaterial.

I am amused when I read such badly composed (with ridiculous punctuation) sentences from people who have never raced or ridden difficult terrain on any sort of bike. Almondog, it is exceedingly perverse to express sour grapes on this web site. You can return to your isolated solitary role in failure if you have nothing to contribute.
