Seat is a custom by Nic at cumfyseatsaustralia.com.au. Widened and firm but not too much. Kept some of the original so you can work out the year model.

it is made in adelaide, looks much better with Red

I like it a lot

I dont know how much a normal service would be for these, but couldnt see much over $150 ?

when I didnt have the time to do one of my road bikes i had a major service done at a cost of $500 mmmmmmm

think a bit of shopping around might be in order

Too many good pics. Too many questions

Been a rush lately on bike pics.

Now, questions:

Digga- What type of fairing is that? I'm looking at something on the same lines. Does it take the standard headlight?

Adventure XR650 and vonkas. Great touring setups. I'm off to the Simmo next winter and you have given me some more mojo for the Pig. I was thinking of offloading it and getting something better suited. But now I can see how much can be piled onto them (rear frame issue) I'm happy again

Vonkas- I know you did alot of the rear subframe work yourself but it is the rack off the shelf? I have done a quick search through this forum but I'm lazy.

Adventure XR650- I gave those photos of your rack to a metal guy in Forbes to make up something similer. Bin material. WOFTAM. I'll try again. I've got the same bags.

the fairing is from rally raid in the uk. about $150 AUD delivered. cut the head light out, drill a hole either side to suit the standard mounts and away ya go. heaps of room fro nav gear now

... the XR is the greatest off road motorcycle ever constructed. There's nothing it can't do, hasn't won or will not outperform.

rack is my design. 5/8" SS tubing & 20mm square section. Avoid having welds stressed on pull. The XR got a bit of battering, but no probs at all, no cracks or bending. The XR is pretty much perfect for this kind of touring - totally dependable and safe.
