That is a good question Nev.

It is easier to pick up when I drop it!

It can't catch, overtake and spit rocks at my brother on his 1200 Gs Adv on open dirt roads.

It fits through small gaps in forests on single track.

It doesn't destroy tyres at over 110 Ks/ hour when I accelerate.

It is easier to ride on technical stuff.

It doesn't feel like it is going to throw me off when I take off .

I still love the SE

Awesome Bike! I had it's cousin the 625 SMC... The engine is absolutely a stunner! I wish they weren't so dear in Australia, I'd like to go KTM all the way.

yeah its a cracker thread, i was gunna chime in with something boring like "it's the best bike I have ever had" and then everything just goes ballistic, it;s great to see the SXC has been so many places, and actually got dirty doing it.

If you are really lucking you will find them multipling in there natural surroundings




When harnessed and saddled up they take you to some very special spots in this great land
