Close up of the rock should be all you need...

Doesn't that rock look weird, like it's fake or something

2nd gear is clunky, you need to shift it like an old BMW (slow and deliberate), you'll want to replace the vacuum fuel pump with electric, carb needles tend to ovalize the emulsion tubes, you'll want (esp. the passenger) a custom saddle, aftermarket parts are almost nonexistant. Front tire choice (110-80-18) is limited unless you're willing to mount a rear on the front. Gearing choice is limited unless you're willing to deal with Sidewinder Sprockets. I was always looking for 6th gear (not there) untill I went 16/40 for a 10% difference dropping my revs almost 500 rpms at highway speeds.

Otherwise it is a great bumpy gravel road bike and commuter.
Lots of good info here in Beasts and esp. in CarpeTDM.

Thinking about it though, for two up touring I think you would be better off with a girly tiger or an 1150 GS, prices are coming down on these older models. JMO
