I tought the first year for the 620 egs Adventure was 97?
I have one from 97, with clear anodizing on the fork legs, low-pipe exhaust and Dellorto PHM40. Seen a few adventures from 98 with high-pipe exhaust and black anodizing on the fork legs.

Found a picture of the saddlebags with tires!

I wonder if the "tire carrier" bags were ever a production item or just a design exercise. This thread is the first time I've ever seen them... ever.

Thumb Great Idea



I wonder why no one else ever built bags that could do this.

I thought the Duke/Duke II was rare, but I'd guess there were more than 1000 imported to the US. I think the lowest number they imported in any year they did import them (they didn't every year) was about 80.

Know what I think is even rarer in the US- the model called LC4 Supermoto.

When I looked at the bike back in '97. The dealer told me that they are special order and that they were available. But this is the same dealer that sold me 6 nuts 6 bolts for my sprocket for $28.13

Really is amazing how low the numbers are. I guess more than 2/3 of them are in the west.

That tire carrier style bag sure is an interesting concept, anyone ever actually seen one?

Anyone interested in compiling a regrestry? I really don't have the computer skills but would be glad to help.

Surprisingly, although I've looked at it several times over the past few years, and I have it bookmarked, I've yet to register my bike.
I suppose there's lots of stuff I could put in there... I guess I'll have to do that, one of these days.

Aren't those some bad-assssssss bolts? I thought they were some kinda hard-asssssss hardware, and therefore expensive. creeper seemed to be pretty happy they were throwing in new hardware to mount the front rotor in the rim recall service.

Was lookin' up bolt info and came across this fancy page:
http://www.boltscience.com/index.htm
Pretty damn cool of them to post all that How-To info!
