 :knob: You can't ride the bike on tar & compare it to the adventure. You must ride it in sand & technical stuff & then you'll see the difference. ( I had a 950 S before so I can tell you, you are talking KAK)

You are basically insulting your own bike. That 950 of yours is not much more that a loaded SE. That's why this thread of yours belong in a brown paper bag.

I had to go outside to give my SE a hug and a kiss and explain that there are bad people out there like you. Lets just hope this doesn't get out. SE's aren't just motorcycles. They have feelings and they might turn on us.
Come to think about it, you most likely had a bad ride on one 'cause of some comment you made around it. My god... what have you done!

I've said it before...

950SE is a whore. Riding it feels slightly uncomfortable, but she knows her job.

I just don't like it. The 950 ADV is a lady which can do anything the whore does, but with a whole lot more class

Jy begin al weer met jou kak so vroeg in die oggend ne?

I don't like crime, the petrol price, BEE, high interest rates, dumasses, taxi drivers....etc etc......but the SE....you HAVE to like....and it comes with a side stand  :peepwall: :pot:

And I very much beg to differ...if the the 950 ADV can anything...that the SE can do!!  :deal:

But then again....what do I know about riding...I just know how to fall!!  :peepwall:

ha ha...sidestand is optional.

At the Rallye Raid, I didn't see one ADV that failed to go where the SE's went. And some parts were about as extreme as it gets for big bikes.

BTW, some SE's are ridden by posers who wouldn't be able to take a ADV anywhere near its max capability.  :peepwall:

Ask Kamanya where an ADV can go.... :deal:

J-dog I must have the perfect bike then I have a 950 ADV with the S suspension and she is a real "lady" with class that can behave like a whore as well  ;)  :biggrin:

ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Ask Kamanya where an Adventure can go. Not may places, unless there is'nt much of an incline.

You are so right

I "hate" mine - why oh why did I sell my Adventure after only 3 weeks and 300 km in favour of a SE ?
