I saw an advert in a local bike magazine for the swm's.  It seems they are here.

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

SWM looks nice, but the price-tag feels a bit high for me.

The AJP is a friends bike. Has not had any issues (2 900km) and is planning on doing some long distance traveling. Has the old Husqvarna motor which is bullet proof. The rest of the bike is not that impressive, from an enduro perspective. I would rather pay a bit more and get a 690/701. He built his own panner brackets. Not sure how much aftermarket equipment is available - guessing not much.
Have bike, will ride.
