Yep! I STILL want the one I've got:





AND I would like another as a project bike to build something like this:





Or...





If I had the cash I'd be on the lookout for one now.

Randy, I just through a question your way in a thread started by ChopperCharles ... Are you following me?

I like the exhausts used on both of those builds.

Yep, I just answered your question in the other thread. The exhaust on both of those bikes is from Storz.

Saw this on J&P's site. Kinda spendy but looking at parts for things you don't own always is.

http://www.jpcycles.com/product/443-176

Looking at this is totally a "cart before the horse" exercise.

Oh, I do that ALL the time. The real trouble begins when you start buying parts for things you don't own. And yep, I've been know to do that too. But, it's ok... The dreaming and planning serves as motivation for future projects and I'd much rather have my direction planned ahead of time than have a project bike and not know what I want to do with it.

waiting Honda....Triumph has the Explorer, BMW has the new 1200GS, Yamaha the Super Ténéré, what gives? This will do very well in the US adventure touring market. I'd buy one sight unseen if they made the announcement that it's coming to the US.
