So what do you need to make and do?

The forks looked pretty reasonable in the pics?

Well, most work will be to the abs system and the the brake calliper. The forks is designed to fit a much smaller disk, so a new bracket needs to be engineered, and some other small things.

If you really want to keep the ABS it is extra work, but not insurmountable.

Nice, with a few exceptions such as Ollie, the strom is not as popular here on the forum as other bikes, its "off road" protection is felt to be suspect.
But the engine is a beaut I believe.

Welsh  :D


i guess that does pretty much sum it up ...

i have added some protection , oil cooler gaurd , radiator gaurd , HB crash bars , it does need a well thought out bash plate i reckon but i aint going to take it more serious off road than the places i been so mebbe just stick with the plasticky bash plate. If it sufficed for baviaans and die hel i have no plans on taking it more serious off road than that....partly cos the rider aint proficient enough .... am looking at getting a DR big or XTZ for more serious stuff .

apart from the KTM these big bikes are really not ideal for what we put em thru , i really think here in africa we take these bikes to extremes the rest of the world does not...

will work on the forks at some stage , need to beef that up , more money to touratech  :cry:   but its xmas soon  :P

done 40 000 km's on mine including a 60 km/h crash which it survived intact aprt from scratches thanks to HB crash bars and never given a problem, all it asks for is clean air filters from time to time...very sensitive to dirty air filter these bikes... oh and the clutch fluid leak on the piston which is more a design flaw at conception which has been sorted on later models but real kark idea by suzuki the first time round.

the motor is a gem though thats for sure , so long as u keep the fueling synced the motor is sweeet ..

No, its not me. But I do aspire..


Unfortunatly never had a bike available--and could only imagine what an awesome ride this would be.
I did however drive a Range Rover up---U-Turn and down again.

Geel Kameel

En hier is Geel Kameel
 - wat 'n plesier! En 'n hengse gat in die bankbalans...

2004:
Die groen bike is 'n ex-polisiefiets uit Malmesbury se omgewing.
1988 model R80RT. Gekoop op 98000km. My eerste bike en het hom baie geniet. Nie vreeslik lewendig nie, maar goed as eerste bike. Ek was oa in Gamkaskloof af met hom - dis waar ek besef het ek het 'n GS nodig.
'n Vriend het hom gekoop en die bike loop steeds soos 'n horlosie

2005:
Opgegradeer na die burgundy R100RS (1983 model) omdat ek steeds nie 'n GS kon bekostig nie. Heerlike krag en spoed, maar maak my skouers moeg op lang trips.
Ouerige man het hom gekoop, en ek kry niks terugvoer van hom nie. Baie netjiese bike.

2006:
Geel Kameel.
Gekoop al kon ek dit finansieel nie regtig bekostig nie.
Maar my hart en siel het aangedring op 'n GS.
....en my hart en siel is nou olraait...

Yes we had great weather. Cold nights though. And a lekker sunburnt nose cause you don't feel the heat in the mountains.
