    well, i'm going to start with some pix from the time when the bike was still looking like a dr800...:norton

    this one was taking at the Judean desert, about 30 minute east to Jerusalem.
    [​IMG]

    and this one was taking about 20 minute west to Jerusalem...
    how about that in change of scenery in less then 1 hour ride...
    [​IMG]

    this one is from- Ramot Menash or the hills of Menash...
    about half an hour driving north from Tel-Aviv...

    now lets go a bit up to the north, more true- the south of the north, the place where I was born and I'm going back to live in 6 months :clap
    the area is the lower gallile and the round mountain is mount Tavor.
    just behind it (to the west) is the city of Nazareth

    My DRZ sold for about £200 less than expected, and with a tight budget I might lose out on the DR800.

    Here's hoping MegaMoto falls asleep after his dinner and doesn't bid against me :wink:

    I do not know what to say - 2 fellow DRBigger bidding against each other...not sure what to say...good luck to you both? :lol3

    Anyway, guys, seriously. You can get DR in Germany for fair price in good order, I can help you as I can - you can stay at my place and I can help you to overhaul bike in my garage before driving to UK. I mean - if situation will be desperate. I live 50 minutes from Germany and it will not be first time we did such thing (my friend live in UK and buying cars in Germany often for himself - he is car freak kinda)
    So, let's hope everyone get what he needs :)

    Hi again.

    I've had some good advice from here. Now I have new starter clutch and overhauled carbies. Started her up just the other day. Sounded nice. Ran just a bit lean, but i think I can get it right by adjusting mixture screws.
    Wich would be a good setting to start adjusting mixture from? 2.5 turns out??

    NB!!! Maybe anyone has a pair of tank crashbars to sell to me? I havent' found a singel offer from ebay in a few weeks now. I live in Estonia (yes it's European Union :D some guys still don't know it). Send a PM to me, please.

    Fantastic photos, Nave,

    For years I've been dreaming about riding Africa. With the current state of the world, I'm thinking that Israel would be both a lot nicer and much safer for Americanos.

    Yep that ones a Goody where are all the people?
    No wonder you need a 800 to get around there
    Bluesman might have the technical thing going on but boy nave do you have the pic thing happenning.
    I still cant get my head around how to get pics on now ( would help if I tried early in the day I usely almost asleep by the time I get here)

    I pulled my clutch cover of because clutch was a bit lerchy on take up if I slipped it to much, ive found a small steel fileing in fibre plate that had scored steel plate so I think that may have been problem we will see, any other thoughts on this ??

    I'd throw away all my technical knowledge of DR for being able to ride like Nave and ride places he rides.
    Belgium is hopeless. Every greenlane ride potentially means huge fines and license loss. I am getting desperate and riding on tractor roads between farmer's fields behind my house. I really feel so down about it, I almost given up any hope I will ever be able to improve my offroad riding skills. :cry
