$55 and I'll ship within the continental US. It looks just like that, but the inside is orange psychadelic from having an orange marker in it in the rain. I'll add a current pic soon, just haven't...

I know, but it's probably unlikely i'll have free time that I won't use to fix the Duc, since time is the only reason it's not running right now. Hope to see you soon.

The DR200 might be the perfect bike for this. Since there's probably a lot more slushy stuff than packed snow where you are, I would not use knobbies. I would try "80/20" dual sport tires. ...

That looks like a much shinier version of my bikes, if you replace the SV with a 900SS. Unfortunately, mine don't have an airplane parked behind them.

Yeah, I've had older bikes rust fairly quickly because there's a lot of chipped paint, but the DR really hasn't. I'd say it's just like cars. Bikes are no more or less likely to rust.
