    Hi Rick,

    A bit of an odd question/suggestion... But nothing ventured, nothing gained...

    Just wondering if you have had a chance to have a look at the new Husky Terra TR650?

    Husky, now owned by BMW, has based this new bike on the GS650 and whilst the bikes are quite different, many parts are direct from the BMW parts bin, still with the Fatherlands stamp!

    So, my point is; you may well have an as yet untapped market for your Dakar Adv Farkels!!!??? : Deal

    There is a great deal of interest in this new bike and the reviews are mostly very positive.... It is a golden opportunity as everyone is waiting on the Farkels to be developed...

    All the best...

    ONN

    Hey Rick,
    I'm not sure if you are taking a holiday break or not but I did post on the TR650 Owners Stupid Questions thread and whilst there was no direct response to my post- there was an immediate response from another inmate vendor who also confirmed a match to some GS components...
    Also some owners re-confirmed the desire to purchase skid-plates, top racks, etc
    Anyway you need to jump in yourself and put your best foot forward...

    As they say - I've led the horse to water...

    Now it's up to you to drink or not...

    Good Luck and all the best...

    already on the bike and stated elsewhere on here in this thread took longer to get it out of the packaging than to fit it to the bike :rofl
    great service and good to deal with
    any questions I had were answered by just emailing him

    Mate, delivery service to Australia was terrific - just 7 days from payment. All securely wrapped and tracking number meant I could set up email advice from both Australia Post and Canada Post telling me where the package was.

    I was across the creek in New Zealand but had time to fit the rack up before the weekend. Only took a few minutes and it worked a treat. Added the rear brake guards now but too busy at work to fit up the rad guard and centre stand plate - jobs for after Easter 'cos a four day weekend is for riding.

    I have some B&B and TT stuff and the finish, fit and functionality of Rick's gear is right up with the expensive stuff.

    These look great. Curious if you could mount a rotopax to this on a G650GS Sertao. Thinking it may be difficult with the access hole in the center, but also love the ability to access to the "trunk".

    Just received my rack and am very pleased with the quality and size.
    I plan on mounting to my x-challenge to use for hauling camping gear.
    Thanks again!

    I would be very interested and love to buy a rear rack for my '03 f650gs. I haven't found very many good solutions for tie down locations and your racks seem like a solid product!

    I now have bought 3 items from Rick. The rear rack for my '07 F650GS was as advertised and dealing with Rick for a set of rad guards and a rear brake MC cover was a no brainer. Very pleased with both items. However Rick; you need to be awake when you install your decals on the rad guards. See pic. LOL. Will be dealing with Rick again in the future...Dave
