The concept makes sence. Most of us heavily customize our adventure bikes so why not start with a low cost base bike that has a great engine, light weight and good handling. Customize to taste. A poor man's GS800.
I was so inspired, that there is now a 2007 low milage ninja in my garage and would't you know it, it is now naked.
This is what I am planning,
17" wire rear wheel
modified oil pan
twin pelican cases
19" wire front wheel
forward and lowered pegs
I am struggling with the front suspension. I think I want about 8" of travel USD with twin rotor capability. I would like to spend 3-400 dollars for the forks and triple clamps. Any suggestions out there?
