Most of you 'merrycans wouldn't know that Trev is actually a Dakar legend... that was his privateer entry in the 2003 Dakar. The Suzuki DR650Rallye, Suzuki looked at bringing this prototype to the masses but changed their minds. Shame really as Trev is the sort of bloke that would sell it to the world.

Good job Trev.........................and being a RD lover who rides mostly off road, I'd love to see the bike finished.

I really enjoyed the thread
