KTM 950 Super Enduros in the Rockies?.

I'm just curious how many others there are out there? Specifically in Colorado as I've seen a lot of photos of them in CO on ADV. Saw some sweet shots tonight in the photo thread from a lad who rode up Mosquito Pass today on one. I bought mine new in '07. Rode it almost 600 miles before a mouse decided to feast upon my wiring harness the first week I owned it (@#$@*&^@&^@). I then stored it until yesterday when I started replacing the harness and a bunch of other schtuff.

Wait, you rode 600 miles back around '07 and it's been sitting unused since. How many miles total on the bike? Or did you buy it new?

Exactly! Essentially I have a brand new 950 se I did buy it new back in '07 and parked it (properly stored) 567 miles later until yesterday. I still have some wiring harness to work on but hope to have it rolling by end of next weekend if all goes well. I'm capable, but no mechanic so it might need a trip to the shop for tuning after the SAS/ectomy.

That's flipping great!
I hope you get it running soon so you can introduce it to the mountains before old man winter forces us west and south for another long season.

Very cool! Glad to see all the SEs in the state. I believe I read somewhere that the KTM annual gathering is in Colorado next year in the September time frame. It would be awesome to see a fleet of SEs there. Maybe KTM would get the picture that people love the platform...probably wishful thinking.

Sounds like we need a four corners SE rally! I know there's a bunch in Phoenix and at least a couple in NM too.

That would be stellar! I'll ponder it a bit more this winter and see what I can do...unless there is someone more familiar with the other states areas that would like to volunteer?

Wow! The weather looked great for a ride. I'm stuck in San Jose for work this week and my SE is still in pieces at home...it is getting closer though. Please hold out weather...hang in there Indian summer!
