    Well, Godspeed's pic was already posted by him in another thread. I figure that means it's fair game. As for your doggy, well... I'm guilty as charged. It seemed like a tame enough one to post... even though he resembles a hairy sausage. :D

    Do not fear... I would never post your "home movies" or, ahem, "family portraits" (or anyone elses).
    :D

    Teddy is a bit embarrassed about his appearance of being a fat little butterball.
    This is him with a haircut, being eaten by an ottoman.

    Holy crap that's a lot of great information compiled!

    I just bought Neepuk's 97 Adventure, and am now trying to get up to speed on maintenance and general use of things.

    Does anyone know where I would be able to aquire a shop manual for the 97 Adventure, motor and bike in general? Also the owners manual would be nice to get a hold of. These should help me over the RTFM questions I have now that are probably answered here somplace. Just need to keep searching.

    I will be looking at the referenced bike this weekend. It looks like it is pretty much stock except for lowering the suspension 2", KTM comfort seat, 45T rear sprocket and chain.

    Is $3800 a reasonable price for this?

    General guidelines on what to look for are appreciated.

    I will use this for 300 + mile trips with 50% dirt roads, forest roads, gravel.

    Thanks.

    Steve

    thanks for using it! there is a thread (or two) indexed on a windscreen mod that works with the 03 using a replacement windscreen for the F650 (BMW). maybe that will fulfill your needs. :wave

    Then you probably already read it, but I think the first tankguard thread has a polymer-spiel by our very own resident polymer-spurt dagwood, if'n you want to get silly wit it!

    i dont know squat about polywho?,, but it would be way cool if dagwood could make a glue-on riser type thing for a windscreen, just to make it a few inches taller and a nicer angle. i would buy it.
