Beautiful!

Pics like this make me think about getting my parts off the shelf and getting back to work on my project. Problem is, I think I'd rather buy a bike and ride it, than build it.

Because no one's selling them.
I've seen a used one now and then here in the FM.

I expect when the new model (not just next year's model) comes out these may be coming on the used market.

Used if you can find them.
Maybe buy a new KTM rack, since that is the tough to fit part, and a used set of Touratech panniers. Years ago I got lucky and found a used set for my 1200 GS.
