Playin'

...they already 'play' in the dirt.

Someday they'll actually manage to 'work' in the dirt.

I hate you guys for giving me these money-costing and hair-pulling ideas. That is all.

Sweet looking bikes though. I might start looking for some sort of thrashed bike to start building. Have tons of inspiration now, just need to see what comes up.

Exquisite! I like that one a lot. Sorry, I can't help with the wheel/shock selection.

Would I be wrong to think that your camera is probably worth more than your bike?

Well... I believe that it's NOT WHAT you ride, it's HOW you ride it. And same applies for photography, it's not the camera, it's the person behind it.

And to prove it: the bike was 450 EUR (running-ish), and my Nikon D200 is worth now about... 250 EUR. At least that's what a mint condition D200 goes for right now. And you may be right to deduce that my camera looks like my bike

Don't think I meant anything in a bad way. Cool ride, nice camera.

Not really a convert. The bike was stolen and trashed. So I stripped it down. The previous Suzuki is cool. Good forks, looks lke DRZ forks.The main problem with a conversion is the front forks. That is my current main limitation with this bike. True off road forks are generally longer. I would like to get something like CR500 forks, but they are too long. I really need the whole front end. Then don't make it too tall or the bike will be too top heavy. These forks are piston ? type. The newer cartridge ? forks are much better. If you are just going to fake it ? and really only ride the good roads, it doesn't matter but if you want a true dualsporter, you need to look carefully at how to solve the suspension problems.
