This is what it looks like now after a few minor modifications.

That's what I use for a wallpaper and yes, it's mine. A fantastic machine, I do agree the Wings are a bit noisy for commuting though. They were on it when I got it. I don't mind too much...

Mine (03 Silver 53000K's) and My Brothers The Other one (05.5 7000K's). The first time they ever met. I was in Victoria working so I made the Easter dash down to the western districs to see the folks, & brother and his Famaily. This was the first time that Mick and I had ridden these old stomping grounds together for 20 years. It gets no better than that.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Got a phone call from my KTM dealer yesterday wanting to book my Adventure in to get the rear brake caliper done under a recall.. Something to do with replacing the pistons inside the caliper..

Anyone else had issues with the rear brake other than it squeeling like a b*tch??

Yeah, mine locks up when I stomp on it along with grabbing a handful of front to avoid that fool cage driver that just pulled out in front of me.

Yep get it done.
My rear brake failed on the Araluen ride, the piston seal blew out

Interesting that the Adventure would get the call in but not the SE, I thought they would be running identical components in most instances..

Booked in for Monday so will post what it is that needs replacing and why..

Mine (05.5) near Old Adaminaby.

Latest additions are H&B crashbars & AJ plastics tall screen. Orange of course.
I'd like it to sound better, but the budget will go towards a rad guard and GPS before some mufflers (leaning towards Staintune).

What model was the brake recall on?
