The purchase

I looked at several bikes including Ducati 695, SV650 and Ninja 650r. Found a good deal on a crashed 650r. The bike came in many boxes and after a bit of assembly, cleaning, hammering and such it was on the road sans fr. brakes.

Prior to investing my sweat equity in a crashed bike, I figured a few hundred miles would verify (or not) function.

Look the wife can touch the ground! This bike started as a build for her. Her GS1150 is great on the road but off road is a handful.
