After a few years of abusing the R65GS i came to a conclusion: Its a awesome bike but it needs less weight and more suspension travel (and some other details.) I have a R100R cafe racer project waiting not to be finished so this will be the base. This is the plan: - 280mm or more suspension travel front and back. - less then 150 kg (with gas, oil battery and starter.) - paralever (i don't want the jacking like a non paralever) - a wheelbase less then 1500mm (that could (will) be a hard one) - reinforced frame - small engine (short stroke R65 maybe with 1000cc cylinders) - rear drum brake - small main gas tank - low center of gravity - and a 1000 things to over think before putting them on this list.
