    The Adventure Rally DR is indeed for sale.
    It's pretty well sorted as far as suspension, pipe, bash plate, rear rack, pannier racks, trailtech, and most of the extras that people fit straight up.
    It's ready to pretty much go wherever.
    It rides really well too.
    Stop into team Moto at Virginia and ask for mark.

    Hi,

    Is there some more information on wind buffeting with the fairing? I am planning to do the Trans-Taiga this summer and would gladly try it for the trip. With the new tank, I now have an Acerbis, but I think it is a bit small :evil... Please let us know.

    Mate, the guys at safari are awesome. Their website sucks.
    Robin does a great job, but web design and admin are not his strong suites.
    If you want info on the fairing setup either stop in and see it in the flesh at team Moto Suzuki Virginia, or call safari direct and ask.
    Don't wait for the website info, Suzuki will make a new DR before that site gets updated.

    As you can see I took a few photos on the other page while I was at Team Moto not that long back :-) so have seen in the flesh and I do like.

    Was hoping a company that wants my money would do a little work to get it, not me doing all the work to spend it, you know:D but I guess thats just me

    Yea i believe they want around $13k for it...for a DR rider it may be a bit more than we are willing to pay for a bike we going to ride hard and put away wet

    Ok Have just gotten off the phone with Safari Tanks

    You can order the tanks in the colour u like, just like there normal tanks, but need to make sure its the one with inserts.

    The faring comes in white only

    Tank $650.00
    Faring $380.00

    So Total $1030.00 then del

    Which to Brisbane is $35.00 as they can fit both the tank and faring into one box.

    So ill be getting one even though its like me not the prettiest thing around :wink:, but its going to suit what I need it for, and also the extra room you get behind the headlight.

    I didn't even notice the fairing at first, but it looks good.
    Does it come in different height for taller riders?

    Not that I've heard of.... but he may have the demand. If I see Robin at the AMTRA HCR, I'll ask again (I asked a few years ago when the DR fairing was in the pipeline, but they were heavily committed to R&D with the GHR Dakar bikes......... so I made my own.:D)

    Ordered mine today, bit of a long list to get them, tank is about 1 week away and the faring a couple after that.

    Cool thing is they are going to send the tank as soon as its done and then the faring when its done and all for the same postage fee :clap
