Monster, try googleing it, I have seen it on a video hosting site from China somewhere in the past. Also, you may enjoy Striking Viking's. National Geographic video about his abduction by the FARC. It is on YouTube.

If you have time, check out the videos on YouTube by mordeth13, atlasrider and svengalie

What kind of ragtop? Here's a Spitfire that belongs to a fellow down the road, he's a Triumph guy and I believe the car is pretty decent.

I'm open to suggestions! I had thought I'd just find a ten year old Miata or a Z3 or something more recent, but classics always appeal to me. Have to check this out.

Anything else pops up on anybody's radar, let me know.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, please keep an eye and ear open for a good deal on the following items that I will need to prep this bike for its future trips, and send me the info. Here's what I'm personally keeping an eye out for as of right now:
1) Versys front forks assembly
2) Versys rear shock
3) Skid plate (will probably end up fabing my own but if a sweet deal is found....)
4) Engine guards
5) Hard side cases, be they Pelican, Caribou, aluminum pannier type, etc.... I just want them to be hard, waterproof, and lockable.
6) Versys gas tank (would be good to have more gas)
7) Some type of Barkbusters that will fit

Those are the main things, but I'm sure that there will be more.
