Not sure "petition" and "demand" are the right approach.

A list of interested parties to show them the amount of interest in a bike like this might carry some weight.

Two questions- Can you please get a go-pro or something similar and shoot some video of your machine??? Id really like to see that thing in action and am sure others would agree.

How many cases of beer would it take for me to send you a KLR and a Versys and have your team spit another one out?

I'l love to tackle a project like that, but I don't think a Dremel and some JBWELD would do the trick...
I have added three short clips to the Smug Mug account on page 9.

Lots more pictures aswell.

RR - that is one awesome build - had considered that this would be a cracker of a conversion and someone has finally done it just right!

I am going a link to this thread to Kawasaki Australia right now!

When my KLE500 finally gives up the ghost, I am hoping that they will have one like this in production!!

Good work (and I think I recognised the location of one of the photo's - looked like a place we stopped to have lunch on the way to Whistler - by the lake?)

Cheers
Ian

Thanks Ian. Which picture? My bike has not made it off the island yet but it will visit Whistler soon.
