Dink julle regtig enige bike wat 200kg plus weeg sal hou as jy hom so ry? :deal:
SE weighs much less than that and yes ...it can do that stuff no probs!

Very very cool photos!
Respect, I would never have ramped so high with my F800GS when I had one.

Especially knowing how "mushy" my front shocks were.
Did you have the standard springs or progressive springs?

This is how a bike should be ridden.

Nice one!

Die naweek weer gaan speel. Die keer het die 800 dit nie gemaak nie. Fork seals gepop :'(

Hier is die jump wat hulle laat kak het


n Klim wat redelik styl is


Nog n jump


Die landing


Hoe die bash plate lyk agv die landing. Hy bottom uit en sleep die bashplate so bietjie


n Slide

If you had a psychic midget who killed someone, you would have a small medium at large.

Thanks Xchallenge, appreciate it :thumleft: :thumleft:

Ja I got rid of the 800. Dont worry, not to a dog and not to a dealer. And I had the whole front end replaced by BMW before I sold it :ricky:

I did however have the progressive springs in the bike while I still had it. Did not help much though :-\

When I eventually buy again I will either buy a 950SE or 690. The 800 was a great bike but found it a bit boring. On the other hand, I felt so confident on the 800. Could take that bike solo up and down Bezuidenhouds pass in the sopping wet rain and not worry about not making it. Hope I will feel the same again about the next bike. Missing my 800 :'(

Sheesh, your photos make me feel like a learner rider.

That's some pretty intense terrain you put your 800 through huh?
I hate riding over big loose rocks, reminds me of that place at De Wildt called "Coconut Island"

I tend to think your needs will be perfectly matched with the 950 Super Enduro! In my my honest opinion, you will probably mess up the 690 with your aggressive riding skills  :biggrin: but do yourself a favour, give the 990 a test ride, it will make you smile, and you will definitely not call it boring.

Only problem is its still a heavy bike, Ive only had mine 2 weeks, and as much as I love it, there are a few things I miss from my 800, but you quickly get over them. Who needs heated grips anyway?

How did you make your windshield black, was it vinyl, or a tint?

Enjoy!

Nice photo!

Hope this ended up successful, otherwise those exposed kneed of yours must've taken a pounding!

The black screen I painted myself with the help from a friend with experience in these things. I know next to nothing about painting

I hear what youíre saying. The 990R is an absolutely great bike, wish I had one. But besides the added weight itís a bit expensive and donít really want to go and fuck it up.

Also keep in mind I only weigh 69kgís on a good day. The height is not really an issue, all bikes are too high for me.

The 690 seems like the sensible choice that would fit my needs perfectly, but like Jeremy Clarkson said. Itís like buying a porno for the story line. Sensible is not whatís important. I want to buy the bike that I have always wanted. And that the SE. :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

I couldn't agree more.

I don't buy bike mags to read the articles, I buy them to perv at the pictures of the new bikes!
The SE is flipped awesome, and it literally has all the power of the 990 but its lighter, so that thing must go like a rocket!

Go on do it!

All the talk about the SE makes me seriously unstable :lol8:. Makes the idea of robbing a bank look like an attractive one :pot:
