Hi all,
This is my Suzuki DR650. You could say it is a Supermoto Adventurer - a Suzuki Multistrada?

The headlight is an aftermarket item (JPOC) from Japan. It came with universal hose clamps which were unsightly; I chop off the ends and mod it to mount on the triples. The fairing is a stock item from a BMW R1100GS; I made brackets to mount it on the headlight frame.

That came out real nice!

Do you have any more pics, like from behind the fairing. Maybe a few of the brackets too.

Thanks Moto,

You did a real nice job putting that together. Before I picked up my KLR I was also looking at DR650's, had I found a cheap one I would have tryed to build it up like you did yours.

Oger,

That's what I had in mind. I bought my DR650 used - for US$3000. Generous friends gave me the headlights, windscreen, exhaust, etc. which they did not have any further use for. It takes a bit of work to fit them but the end results is worth it. Thanks again for your comments.

Thanks also to bmwblake & BLUE(UK) for enlightening me on the pics loading situation.

Bought this beauty last week. Haven't been able to go for a ride yet, as there are several 'open issues' waiting for a fix. Hope to be able to take the TTR out in a couple of weeks for some warm up laps in the bush

Any other TTR600 riders out there????

Cheers,
