R90S project, need advice on parts.

So I've done the most financially irresponsible thing I could think of: I bought an R90S project bike. Actually, not so much a bike, but a truckload of boxes consisting of a '74 R90S, a '75 R90/6,...

New R80 mono owner with a bad oil leak - breather problem?

So today I picked up my new ride: a 1985 R80RT. I stopped by my house to pick up some more suitable attire, and when I come back out to ride it some more... oil everywhere. There's at least ~100ML of...

Considering purchasing a '87 R80 - what should I look for?

I recently figured out I don't have enough time to go offroad riding anymore and that my DRZ sucked for the highway - so I sold it. One of the candidates for a replacement is a 1987 BMW R80 that's...

Newbie DRZ owner - gear questions

I just bought my first DRZ 400 S (a 2001 with 7k miles), and I have a few equipment questions:

They're not twins, but have you considered the Aprilia Pegaso or BMW F650 (the older thumper, not the newer ones)? Both are powered by a Rotax that's seemingly indestructible, there are tons of...

What's that Husky you've got, the TE630? How close are you to being able to put both feet on the ground, and if it isn't stock what did you do to it in order to lower it?

Naah, no need for flatfooting, but I'd like to get the ball of each foot down okay. Tiptoes at the worst.

Edit: On tiptoes I have a 33" inseam, on the ball of the foot it's 32".

Help a short guy out - Husky TE suitability, or other?

Well, as the subject says, I'm a bit on the vertically challenged side at 5'8" with a 31" inseam. After a two year break from riding (f'n work got the better of me), I'm bike shopping again. There...

Scooters, and a crappy sense of balance.

After a four or so year break from riding (was moving around too much), I recently got back into it - it's nice to be back on a bike (Guzzi V11).
