Or... How to Build a Low-Tech Adventure Tourer on a Budget Start with a used 2004 SV650 with 7,000 miles. Ride it home from Miami to Tampa with a tropical storm chasing you. Bolt on some SW-Motech carriers and a Sargent seat. Add some Seahorse cases. [/url] Buy a used windscreen from a Tiger 800 and fabricate some mounts. Raise the front fender in preparation for 17" TKC-80s. Crank up the suspension preload. Go ride. If the tires weren't almost new, I'd replace them sooner, but I'll enjoy the grip for road riding until they wear out, then spoon on some TKC-80s. Not much fun in the dirt yet, but the suspension is better than the Versys' in bumps.
