More DRZ250 Parts Sources

I also found a good quality bash plate and rear rack for the DRZ250 at Whipps Alloys down in OZ. You can Google them. Very reasonable prices, even with the abysmal exchange rate.

Where to get the bash plate?

and the panniers? Those look better than anything I have seen here in the States. Can I mail order those things from Oz? Do those panniers have a frame mount, or is it all strap mounted?
