Hans Muth worked for BMW where he designed the R65LS, and Suzuki; you can see the similar frontal area in the Katana as well.

Some DR Big`s look their age in the wrong colours; you`ve had a win with your paint job RM.

I had Finer Filters make me foam air filter element and fitted and Ohlins shock and Honda XR front end and had an alloy bashplate made.
Other mods I did were to separate the ignition and lighting wiring looms and remove a LOT of wiring that wasn't needed. Not sure if I've got any other photos, but I'll have a look.
