That looks a lot like the Enduro Engineering one.

Great pictures Paul/Bert! What are the pipes from?

Tried to order Enduro Enginnering rear rack for 530EXCR and they said it was discontinued.

So ordered from 2wheel Central. Price is about the same and it was shipped pretty fast.

Super Bowl and "Fastest" Socials ... New racebike ...

Hey Pcfly,

It was great to see you and Fernando, and get a chance to watch the Dakar ... amazing racing and scenery ...

If you aren't riding during this beautiful weather, we're having a Super Bowl Social on Sunday, 2/5 (game starts at 3pm), and are showing "Fastest" on Saturday, 2/11, at 7 pm ... 18th and Folsom in San Francisco (link to website in sig).

Anyone reading this is welcome, and tips for the food go to Nixel's March 4 book reading with Melissa Holbrook Pierson and long distance rider John Ryan ("The Man Who Would Stop at Nothing: Long Distance Motorcycling's Endless Road") ...

Anyway, this is what I did today ...
Before:


and after:



Got bodywork on Cary's 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 250 race bike ... We're looking to head down to the Willow Springs Motorcycle Club the third Sunday of this month to warm up for the AFM season which opens at Buttonwillow in late March ... I'm going to try to race her old Honda VTR 250, if I can find one of my old roadracing licenses ... last had one in 1999 ... ha.

Put a new-used aftermarket header, to replace the tiny ones you can see in the top photo, pointing out at the front wheel ... crazy small and restrictive ... the new one looks like a proper motorcycle exhaust system ... next stops: front suspension, dyno room and paint!

OK, see you in the pits, or around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Looking for a used Suzuki DRZ400S

Hi everyone.
My girlfriend and I has visited the US three times the last three years and traveled more than 30.000 miles around the states. Now we are looking for at bike for my girlfriends brother too.

So I just wanted to ask if someone happens to have a used Suzuki DRZ400S for sale.
Im looking for one, and I hope to find one in the bay area/mid california area.
Max price will be about 2500-3000$. Miles and age does not matter a lot.

If possible I hope to find one that already has a large gastank installed, and it would be even better if it also had some kind of luggage rack.
Other than that the more stock the better.

Im not looking for a race bike, but a good trustworthy travel bike.

So send me a PM or send me an email if you have a DRZ sitting in the back of your garage or know someone who has one and would be willing to sell.

I have some time to find the right bike, and will not HAVE to find one before may. But if the right bike shows up a friend of mine in Oakland can make the deal for me.
