Took out both the 950's today with a buddy who is looking to buy his own 950 and can't decide between an Adventure and the SE... I don't often get to ride the SE and Adventure back-to-back, but it is always fun! My favorite is always whichever one I have been riding for more than 10 minutes!

Couple of pictures from todays ride...


Contrary to popular belief, more throttle is not always the answer!



(Though sometimes it's just the ticket...)



Spring melt...

Nah you just left it too late before application.

Is that an adventure? I see the dual discs, but I'm confused, lol.

It was pretty easy: everything can be reverted back to original in lime an hour :)

If you guys are interested i'll make a build thread.

Yeah I'm interested for sure! Any idea how much weight you saved, if any? Does it handle better?

I took off 32kg, and it handles way better, obviously :)

That was the previous step, but it was too "large" still: now it's more agile, has the ABS for when i travel and it's as high as i can manage :)

It can be "undressed" in 2 mins for faster and easier maintenance and it weights 199 kilograms. :)

I'll have to do a service asap for the incoming Erzberg Rodeo and i'll take dome detailed pic, then make the thread :)
