I found this in a crappy local shop in a backstreet in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She's been the property of a French guy who came to grief and gave her up so no Cambodians have serviced it with a scaffold bar and a hammer. There's a rip in the seat (very easy fix out here) and the sump guard is missing. Otherwise in exceptional condition. I took her down to the coast where she strutted her stuff and I have to say, I'm damn impressed. My normal ride is a BMW X-country I rode here from London... nothing will ever replace that bike in my heart but she's off the road pending a refit so this one is getting pressed into service as a replacement and also for rent to people I can trust not to abuse it. I'm already planning some modifications (but will keep all the standard gear just in case). I would like to get a better exhaust, rejet the carbs and get a decent air filter. I'm planning a new headlight and better screen, engine guards, a better than standard bash plate and some kind of luggage solution. I'm already changing my mind about renting it... loving this bike already. Here are some pics...
