Anywho...let's try and keep this going so I can feed my addiction! hahaha
Sounds like an excellent start for a great ADV bike build!
I have always liked the 920 engine and have thought it could be a great bike once the ugly is stripped away.

Like this bike at the One Motorcycle Show:



Looking forward to your pictures.
