Husqvarna 650 Terra for adventure touring?
 
Hi folks! :D

Just curious: what is the collective opinion on turning the 650 Terra into an adventure tourer? It has plenty of power, and they're offering hard luggage to go with it (which, from the pdf brochure on their site, looks very similar to the Givi Trekker cases.)

I really like the look of this, and considering that the price is not much higher than a KLR, it looks like a really good value.

So, I'm :ear to yon's thoughts on this!

I like the idea, but personally I'd wait a couple of years. 1st year bikes are scarry. I did come across some nice pictures and mods from BigDog if you haven't see it.

You didn't see the thread that already has 112 pages?

Yes, that's 112 pages of every last nuance about the bike. Perhaps I should have specified that this thread should only be about touring options/farkles for this bike, much like how the Ténéré has two threads; one for the bike, and one for farkles/modifications.

Sorry to cause any trouble. I just figured this would act as more of a listing of luggage, tyres, windscreens, maybe some pics of what people have done with theirs, etc etc.
