in my opinion, these new bikes are way too big and too bulky. But everybody as he/she likes ... my biggest ride is a 1988 Suzuki DR 750 Big (bit more than 200 kg) accompanied by a 1981 Triumph Tiger Trail 750, a Scrambler, weighing in at 173 kg with a tank full of gas. Owned since new! Back in it's days people used to laugh about me riding such a fat off-roader. These bikes are big enough for an overweighed 55-year-old guy measuring only 1,70 meter.
Why I'm writing these lines to you: You should add the letters 'uper Ténéré' to the 'Samurai S'. But surely, this 'S' is shouting too much 'Suzuki' for you! So I'm just kidding ...
Have fun with your bike and projects, your work is immaculate!
Kind regards from Germany, Bambi
