    I watched all of your videos on Youtube - very well made, really nice to see! Some "director work" there. One looked just like "DR answer to KTM advertisement"

    Radeki,

    I really liked that. All this time I thought I was the only one that patted the side of the fuel tank like the flank of a loyal horse. Made me smile......and happy to see others are equally as mad.

    Anyone else ever do that?.......come on......you can tell us.

    Hi Rob,
    that was my first thought too when I saw the picture. I even said something like this to Iris before reading your lines. Jörn, my friend, measures about 2 meters and 3 centimeters. It seems that Simon standing on the ground (not sitting) over the bike still has air between the saddle and his ... er ... you know ...
    Kind regards, Bambi ... envious concerning your possibilities for off-road-tours
    Btw: I also patter the tank of my bikes after long runs, after a good run with bigger machines in the twisties (that's especially with the 400 cc Suzi-single) or coming out of difficult situations ...

    Hello Rob, hello Simon,
    am I allowed to 'steal' the picture of Simon standing beside the bike to show it to our German forum? For all your other pictures I'll place a link there. But this one might be a real good 'appetizer' ...
    Kind regards, Bambi

    Hello Rob, hello Simon,
    thanks a lot! It's a pity, you're not just living next door ... what great parties we could have ...:freaky
    If you want to see, try www.dr-big.de and have a look at 'Allgemein'. I'll post it with the title 'Big-Fríends in Oz'! If you have questions concerning navigation of the site feel free to contact me. Everybody else here's invited, too!
    Kind regards, Bambi

    hey Robmoto!!!!

    i see you run without the rear carrier just handles..was wondering how you strengthened the subframe..on mine the carrier is used to tighten the whole up..i wouldnt think the rear fender would last too long with the weight of the subframe hanging off it..i like the look of just the handles:clap

    just trolled through you build pics...so that answers that question......no subframe
