Thanks, I just did the condo 750 on it. She's a bit battered right now.

Yep, my bike is/was a 2000 F650GS. As you can see it got the full Touratech Oryx Enduro Kit though, so there's not much left other than the main frame, motor, airbox, oil tank and the radiator.

Heres mine on a recent outing. With a 15 in the front and a 49 in the back it hauls the missus and I around in the mud 2up right well. With 32,000 miles its gonna need shocks soon however.

Dont tell GSBS but that is his Dakar seat on there and I dont think the mud will ever come out.

I didnt pay more than what a twin spark ABS Dakar would've run me.
I bought the bike used by the way (it was already equipped with the Oryx Kit)

It needed and still needs some attention as it was in a terrible optical and partially technical shape, but other than that, well worth it :P

thats about the only way i could afford the kit is if it was on a bike already, nice looking and light weight, cant get better than that!

Same for me...I couldnt afford a Kit thats actually more expensive than what the bike was sold for brand new :P

Butz there have been 2 Oryx bikes for sale within 4 weeks here in germany, one came from a guy who works for TT (this one even had the infamous alloy swing ) and the one I got...mine needed some work, but the other one would have been too expensive for me as well (it is virtually brand new) and well....the guy who bought it is a friend of mine anyways

Mine does not have the alloy one (the alloy swing offered 280 mm of travel, instead of 250 mm, but after the Dakar Rally, Touratech destroyed the remaining 4 dozen of those swings they had and offered replacements to their customers).


Here are some pics of the one my buddy got though:





EDIT: Here's a pic I snapped a few weeks ago ( this is one of 2 or 3 of the original 5 Factory Rally bikes Touratech still owns, my mate with Oryx owns one of those, too)
I linked it cause of the high resolution.
