So a long time ago, I converted a 97 CBR600 to a "dualsport". It was fun, ridiculously fast, and completely stupid. I ended up selling it and regretted it ever since. Fast forward to earlier this year. Life had settled down, and I was in the market for an adventure bike. I had my XR650R for dualsport rides, my GPX 450 for racing and hardcore dualsporting, but was wanting something more road friendly that could still do the occasional trail. Low and behold, I stumbled onto JDRocks gravel runner threads. The Versys 650 definitely fit the bill when it came to price and capability. I started searching for one, and wouldn't you know it? JD had one for sale in the classifieds! So I took a short trip over to his place and picked it up She was bone stock with alot of highway miles. After getting it legal and riding it for a bit, I started modifying it to do some more off-road stuff. Put a Kenda big block rear on, and a Vee Rubber VM33 front. Also raised the front fender and mad a new brake line for the master cylinder to left side caliper. So far, it does most of what I want it to. Next step is a front fork swap, and spoked wheels. Stay tuned!
