Ive got something really good that I cant scan; A mounted poster of the 89 Dakar winning NXR750, it's about 36" x 24", it's one of those mounted bike posters all the dealers get for their showroom ie an official Honda thingo. It's a long and involved story how I got my hands on it, one day I'll tell you all about it. I'll see if I can a photo of it.

Bring it on!

Think, Ducati 1000 ie, more power and reliability and you can mount a swing arm in the rear case. Sportster motor can't touch it in every way....

You will find some great stuff in the bowels of this thread

You are not alone my friend. Some day I will either turn my old Sporty or my Guzzi roadracer into an off road beast.

I'd hate to think of the things you would have been prepared to do to get that Greg.

You have seen this site ?http://www.desertstorm-bike.de/ You alreday have the AT bike to pilfer parts off. and a different front end for the AT. All you need is a 'dero thats been written of 'cause of bent forks and busted body work. It would be better than messing around with one of those strom650 things you've been thinking of. I'd even voulenteer as the test rider if you converted a 'dero to desert storm spec !

I still have a pic of this on my garage bulletin board. I think this is the best BMW custom ever made, and the only one I'd actually buy. As if I'd see one for sale, right?
I`ve been drooling over this work of art for 2 years now; who, in his right mind, wouldn`t? :uhhuh

Now,
Could somebody explain to me why BMW didn`t go this way with the HP2?

thats one might fine collection Greg.

So its possible to get video's burnt to DVD's nowdays isn't it ? just to preserve them, not to sell to Dakar junkies over the internet or anything, of course

I just noticed the swingarm on there isn't the stock BMW one...not a big surprise. But Touratech doesn't list a swingarm for the F650GS. So where does it come from?

Thumb Building an HP1..

I remain inspired by these bikes and the amount of modifications it has taken to achieve the end result.

We will be building my 1150 GS into our own AWS HP1 this winter and we'll incorporate many really trick parts and features.

It's all starting with the this rather "oh hum" platform and hopefully we will be able to produce a bitchin setup.



More dirt means more fun!!!

later,
A

I'm curious, what difference are you taking about? rightside up forks, carbs, rally fairing?
The HP2 is basically identical (except for the beak) to the race bike HPN built in '04....
