YEHAAAAA !!
« on: November 22, 2014, 03:48:13 pm »
So I have just bought myself a DR650 it was in an accident and the frame is bent plus other damage,, no, I havent seen it yet and need to courier it up from cape town to Gauteng  to know the full extent  of the damage but really looking  forward to the project, now I have TDM 850 which is well suited to Tar and gravel roads, I have  modded it to be everything I need for the type of riding I have been doing  but need something to keep me busy, I think I will go the the whole hog on the DR,, 790 kit, big valve head, pumper carb, WR450 suspension , long range tank,, will make an aluminium rallye fairing etc,, basically what I want to achieve is a giant "fuck You"  to all my 690 yuppy mates out there and still have a reliable scooter with enough oompf to make them cry,, what say you all?

Now that I can relate to, been along exactly those lines with my XR650L the last few years. Good Luck with the build...

I say you are a right twashole! Good on you mate. I'll be joining you soon on a 690 kicking DR!

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Some from Procycle, what did you bring in? and define cost 10k versus the look on a 690 riders face when you stick with him?
