    Ah, I didn't realize you wanted half the engine. Is it that lighter? Or easier to ride?

    Do you make Farkles for other bikes?? BTW, I'm in Tucson, too.

    Congrats on the new bike! Do you still have your BMW C600?

    Traded the BMW for this. Been riding the BV350 so much more than the BMW, it made me re-think my riding. Hoping that this bike will be in my garage for a long time. It is lighter than the BV, I can tell just by pushing it around. More HP and better handling should make for a fun ride.

    I've been collecting some accessories for my Sixty2.
    Dart flyscreen, evotech engine guard, replaced the OEM footpegs with those from an MS1200, sw motech sidestand enlarger, and OEM scrambler bags. [​IMG]

    Even though I just got most of those parts, today was ride day. First ride since bringing it home over a month ago. It's been 5 and 10 mile rides around the neighborhood up until today.

    Last one today. I installed the dart flyscreen. I think it looks good, though I know some aren't in love with it.

    In the future: frame sliders for some protection, full throttle bars, mirrors (not bar end) and a new seat or seat cover. Leaning toward seat concepts or luimoto.

    Thanks. I got the bags and brackets off of ebay for $200. I didn't think I was getting brackets at that price but I'm pleased for sure. Seat concepts looks like a really nice seat, I think I'd go vintage brown. As for fuel, I don't stray far from fuel and I don't mind stopping and stretching anyway. As for windscreens, I know for sure that Givi and Puig make screens.

    This seat looks interesting too. I like the fact that the black sides make it look like a flat seat and the black would blend it with the rest of the bike. But man, it's expensive for just a cover kit.

    Bike is looking good! I'm a fan of the Dart flyscreen -- I have one on my Full Throttle. First mod I put on there.

    Please tell me more about the "MS1200" footpegs. Is that the Monster S 1200 or another bike? Are they direct bolt-ons? I hate the stock footpegs.

    Here are the parts, they are from a Multistrada (can't remember which year). I found it on one of the scrambler threads and yes, they are bolt on. Took me about 10 minutes. I got them from AMS Ducati.

    If you just search by these part numbers, you'll get the right parts. The final part number, 800060700, that is for the springs but you don't need them if your scrambler springs are fine. The 800xxx was replaced by the 799xxx but again, I odered them, but didn't use them.

    I think that is just a beautiful bike. for bikes under $8000-ish, that would be at, or near the top of bikes I'd love to own.

    Of course this is based on looks and spec sheet alone, maybe riding one would change my mind.

    That seat kit makes all the difference. I have never been a fan of the shape of the seat. This sort of hides that look.

    I am digging this bike. I have a soft spot for smaller displacement bikes. I covered nearly 300 miles in the past couple of days on a little Rebel, including some riding that would far far better suited for this bike than a Rebel.
