There is a clean SP200 on CL in Ohio, they want $1800. Nothing as clean as yours though.

The quality of the component materials in the older bikes seem to really last and hold up..I've added new tires and the fmf pipe, which really woke this little rig up..

Why is it, no matter what I own or ride , nothing is quite as fun as the 200?
Yes, the muffler makes it pop a lot better. Did you mod the airbox or carb? www.kientech.com

It was 19 degrees out when I rode the bike the 20 miles into town for breakfast. 30 degrees in the garage when I started it up.......
It's amazing how much peer pressure there is when your meeting your riding buddies to eat.....

Thanks, Jon

Well it's no longer listed on their website. Glad I bought a new '09 last year. Kind of a work horse and fun, fun, fun.

Best to go talk with the folks at CycleSport. IIRC, their bikes come directly from Suzuki, rather than American Suzuki, so availability might be different.

It was sunny and in the 40's so I took the DR out for a spin after classes...found a few little stretches of fun, and had a pretty good time just seeing what's out off the main slab

Found a neat old gate dedicated to the creator of the school I go to (Rose-Hulman):




Hard to read but it says "Chauncy Rose Memorial Plaza"


Swung over to the levee



and found a neat old baseball diamond that's been deserted for some time:


Man is the DR fun anywhere!

That's my best guess...especially with the nice corinthian columns...

The tires are Avon Distanzia's...fantastic on the pavement, but a bit sketch when it gets muddy out. Really about a 90/10 tire.

Godwinmt wind screen?

Godwinmt,

What windscreen do you have? I have started tossing around the idea of maybe adding one. Also what bags are you carring?

Thanks,

BrianO

windscreen is from Screensforbikes.com which is based down in australia. He had my screen to me in less than a week! It keeps a lot of the wind off your chest which is nice when it gets cold. Cruising on the highway I typically scoot back and lay down over the tank. The shield does a fantastic job then. I took some decent pics after the installation which they put up on the screensforbikes site here.

I originally ran the Moose Racing side bags, but those were destroyed after I lent them to a friend for his KLR250...he forgot they were on there and when he went to kickstart it, he snagged the lower strap and ripped the straps out of the back of the right bag. Here's a picture with them on it:


The bags on it now are made by saddleman. They're smaller than the moose bags, but I think they're a better design. They do expand out quite a bit which was useful today grocery shopping :)
