How about a "look what I found" thread??

After following the KTM Incas thread, as well as a few others that involve people finding "items of interest" and then posting them in here. Would it be a good idea to create a Sticky Thread that people can post their find in for other inmates??

For example i just found this.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Motorbike-dr6...item3ca9715497

Now, i don't want it, but it's a great bike and someone on here just might.

What are your thoughts people (and mods)??

Shouldn't be a problem.

Same engine as the DR of the same period, I think the twin pipes was just the trend (the Honda Dominator had them as well).

Wouldn't surprise me if they were more free flowing than the single pipe, but the are heavy (although I have seen it claimed on every stat that I have seen that the "standard" 91 DR is a few Kg heavier).

Being Alloy I dont think its heavier than 5 kgs. Far from it I`d say, so a 5kg Express post bag might be big enough to put it in. They cost 19.00 from memory Australia wide. Thats only if it fits in the bag, and they are big bags.
