Hi there,
today Miss Marlboro led a few motorcycling fellows from our office through the Eifel-hills in 'far-west'-Germany. Although they live there, they were very enthusiastic about my chosen route. It's often that way, people know the world, but not the roads just around the corner!
We had a fine day and here are some pics to proof! First pic, I'm the second one from the right ...
Kind regards, Bambi

One more, showing my wife Iris and 2 of the guys who rode with us. Nothing serious, German country-side is very civilized ... and very pretty, too, if you know the right spots!

well, i have rebuilt my rm forks and removed the original front from the DR. it is not a straight bolt on. the stem from the rm is 10mm too short. i am in the process of getting a new one made up.

regarding the 650 rear end, are both 650 rears (pre and post 95) the same? how do the swingarm lengths compare to the DR?
i'll get out there one day rob!!

Simmo it would be pre 95.I know a 91 fits and a 650 RSE does.
You can use your drum one, but will have to weld a thicker bit on where the drum piece slides over to stop it from spinning thats all nothing major.
And weld brackets to the frame to hold the master cylinder.

Yes, the master cylinder is an issue to deal with...
Congratulations to Rob, that's a sweet piece of gear.
I'm not going that far with my 750 project, I'd just like to fit some street wheels on it.

Aye, I miss the German contryside... Indeed, it's very civilised, but for a streetbike it's heaven! I remember there were some road repairs going on (baustelle - na ja! ) and we were redirected through some vineyard countryside near Stuttgart and I was amazed at how perfect the asphalt was, seemingly in the middle of nowhere... gotta hand it to them Germans...

Finally mounted the new silencer...
Header tube from Herr Hessler. SBK titanium silencer cheap from Ebay.
I cut off the last 50 millimeters from the header to have maximum diameter all the way. Managed to fabricate an chicane shaped adapter to fit the silencer to the header pipe the way I wanted it to look. I used a 2 inch stainless steel mandrel bend.
Big difference in power compaired to the original. Fantastic sound...and loud. I might have to produce some kind of dB killer.

Hi there,
@ Katana: Looks very good. Maybe, you're a bit near to the plastics!
Iris found out the hard way yesterday, that a Big silencer gets very hot when you're not on the move. We said 'good-bye' to some friends while sitting on the bike and she stretched down her right leg. Luckily, no burn-mark left on the leather-trousers and, much more important, on her skin, too. She says, it took a few minutes 'till the leather cooled down again, even when on the move again.
Concerning our roads: I get the feeling, that our main-roads are in a much worser state than a lot of our agricultural ways! Some of them, like a German motor cycle reporter once said, are so good, that a Ferrari could do 250 kmph on them ... but there are traffic-signs put in front of these ways, so that we're not allowed to do so!!!
Allthesame, we saw quite a lot of road-buildung/-repairing yesterday.
Kind regards, Bambi

I like your bike Roger, It looks tough, is that a home made rear calliper support bracket with a linkage to the swing arm.
