    Open an account at an online host (smugmug (my fav), photobucket, flickr, etc). Upload your pic to there, then post it here by copying the URL and pasting it using the insert image icon.

    For cheap I'd go Rotopax, carry a couple more gallons on side racks or the tail rack. 6.6 gallons should give you 350 miles (+-565K) unless you're in really tough country.

    Hello all,
    I have been checking out this site and the 650 Dakar thread in particular. You guys have inspired me to change my mostly street ways. I looked around and found an '01 Dakar. I will be picking it up in a couple of days. It has 13K on the odo and the dealer did the 12K service ($1350.00) before putting it up for sale. Paid $3500.00 with panniers and other farkles. I will probably have some questions when I get it, so, thanks in advance. BTW, I'm in southern IN if anyone knows of any good places to ride in the area.:clap

    Kubiak,

    Bike is looking shit hot.

    That color scheme really settles the form of the bike.

    Power seems fine but it's spitting out pretty good now. I'm going to see if the coolent is low.
