Looks like a Versahaul.

I have one and for my 450, it's great. Beats pulling the trailer and suffering through 55mph speed limits :)

here's mine. Picked the 2008 model up a couple of weeks ago and loving it. Itching to get rid of those stock cans

That's stock as can be!!, Even got the rubbers on the foot pegs and the reflectors on the front guard. Only Akrapovics will do for this fine example!

That's an Africa Twin.

I've been wishing Honda would import them for the last 20 years...

I switched from a 690 Enduro to a 950 ADV - unless you really love the tight, twisty dirt/sand/mud and you must have the lightweight 690, do it - you will not regret it one bit, especially on larger open roads and trails.

Thanks for the info. Checked it out, prob for me is weight capacity of my wimpy Honda Element in this set up is too low per their info. Looks like a great product though. There's a place that sells 'em close to my house so I'll double check w/them in person.

Trailer. There are very few cars that will allow a hitch type carrier.

i figured being stock it must of had a easy life... so far Since i've scrapped the foot peg rubbers, added pannier racks, msc damper/risers. March I'm getting some mufflers. Possibly Wings

Yes, it is my "nxr"

The fork from my adv comes from a 690, and they are set for a 100 kg driver.
It was a bike for the Italian Rally competition.
