Jack it up a few inches an dump some of the plastic. Great motor looking for a home... And protection.
Please find some way to reasonably add a bash plate, and rase the fender so the TKC's won't rip it off at the first sign of mud (if by chance fitted).
That muffler could be raised up a tad as well. New non piano wire bars. How much can that cost ?
Traded in my beloved Pedro for a GSA, but still have a soft spot for the big DL. Once I retire, I would truly love to build a 1000 based machine. Some inmate did a great job on a rebuild (red with a single headlight and some bed liner tank protection that I cannot link to post). Kudos to him.
ADV version ? Throw us a bone.
Best of luck Suzuki.
I like the way you think. I'm keeping my fingers crossed they go the way Triumph did with the 800. A street version along with the 800XC for the more adventurous souls.
