To be done:

remove ABS (not sure about it yet)
higher seat
replace sump guard with an aluminium one
tilt over IMO and relocate windscreen so I can read the IMO while standing
fit a techlusion
ride and ride and ride...

Firstly, wouldn't it be easier to just have a switch inline with the ABS fuse, that should turn it off easier then the stupid switch that BMW has done, my ABS always turn back on while in the bush, then its like shit its back on.

Did you remove your instruments? can you give me more information on the cockpit setup ( I love it, something that I would like to do)

What forks are you using? and how easy did it connect the triple tree???

thanks for the inspiration

...and one more!

New to list, but been lurkin' awhile...lotsa nice 650's! Here's a pic of my ride, South O' The Border in Bahia de Los Angeles (that place is really awful...don't ever ever ever go there! ) on a trip with fellow ADV rider Will Hansen and his 1150 GSA beast.

Nice Trout Catcher...

Beautiful Dakar, reminds me why I bought one just like it 6 years and 26k ago. Mine is being prepped for a trip to the Arctic Circle this summer.
