    No but they sure look sweet in person. They have custom painted tanks, custom rear guards, rims etc. You can get them in different configurations and the shop has an inhouse cafe, bookshop, clothes store etc.

    I asked the guy to get his engineer to make me some pannier racks for the DR, he said that he could not beat USD$199 that Moto-sport were going to charge me???

    Shhh! the store is owned by Action Suzuki - Wenthworth Ave

    Yep, I love the look of these. That exhaust looks very noisy though, and I don't like that - too dorkish and brings too much attention from cops.

    NEXT to come - Steering dampener, Full Staintune system (when I can find a second hand one) maybe a screen, if I can come up with one that doesn't look like crap.

    My previous DR650, a 1990 model.
    I prefer the later model,
    but, damn those early ones came well equipped:
    21 litre tank, decent alloy bashplate, carry rack, firm suspension, and the best fairing ever......Suzuki are you listening!

    I bent mine on a wallaby once. I collected a bit of fur and blood.

    Gotta agree the earlier ones were well equipped particularly the "Dakar" one - it would be nice to get a pristine DR Big too.
