I also own a TW200 and a DR650,

if I could just put the DR650 motor in the Tdub, I'd have a TW650.

I must resist, I must resist, I must resist............

Cool2 Strom ideas

I go round and round with possibilities for the Strom.
Putting TW wheels and tires like Kubiak has done to his BMW has a lot of appeal.
So does removing all the plastic and extra weight, making a fiberglass tank and putting wire wheels (21 &17/18) with knobbies on it.

The motor is magic but the bike is too stinkin' top heavy.

Maybe a custom steel tube trellis frame like the KTM?

With good mx bike suspension of course.

So many possibilities...

The "Thin-strom's" seemed to come out pretty good, if you decide to go that route. But I can appreciate wanting something completely different.

Thumb Now on Motorcycle Photo of the Day

My bike made the (semi) big time!

Bike Exif wasn't interested, Pipeburn wasn't interested, but Motorcycle Photo of the Day posted up 3 pictures of it recently.

http://motorcyclephotooftheday.com/2...r-650-tracker/

If you haven't seen it there already, please click the "rate this" stars as you see fit.

I hope we get more DR's on the bike picture sites.

Eh, Bikeexif and Pipeburn are crap anyway. They both sold out to advertisers and overpriced crap that no one can afford and no one will ride.
