    Hi,

    Looking for opinions on whether or not this could be accomplished. I've always liked the LC4 motor. I would get an Enduro R or 701 but they're too tall for me and I prefer a more street oriented riding position.

    Could a Svartpilen 701 be setup for adventure touring? Windscreen looks easy to add. Seems to be quite a few options for luggage. Bash guards and such would probably need to be custom. No idea about additional fuel, this might be the big challenge. Suspension travel is 6" which seems like enough for my intended use.

    Thoughts?
