I had not seen this build before so thanks for posting it up!
Hmmmm. Maybe my Wee Strom with fat tires and spoked wheels...
yea i would love to have a gopro camera to film my rides. i dont have anything to film with yet. yea i love the gs now, it does everything better than before both on and off road. today i had a little time this morning to work on my new exhaust project. i have the suzuki quad muffler on now which is the best one so far but i bought a muffler off the new ktm690 to try out. since they put out 62 hp they should flow plenty for my bike plus they are super super quiet. i made the mounting bracket and modified the inlet pipe to fit my bike and i will put it on tomorrow and see how it runs.

test rode with the 690 muffler today, it felt great and is getting better as i ride more miles, i guess the computer is adjusting to the cat converter and new pipe. it runs as good as my last quiet quad muffler so its a keeper. i like the converter in the muffler, no more exhaust smell out the pipe!

yea i been busy making bikes to fit me lol! you missed the last one before this bike? i did a build on a 03 1150gs after i sold the xrl.
heres the last build i did, i looks similar to the dakar i have now but just much bigger. i had 14 gallons of fuel capacity on the 1150! check out kubiaks 1150gs build on the gspot thread, i did a full build on the 1150gs.

looking at my 1150 with the auxillary fuel tank i made for the back, i think i will make a small 1 quart emergency tank for the dakar. i seem to always try to get the most out of each tank of gas and sometimes run out close to the gas station. i had to push the dakar a few miles once and thought if i only had a pint of gas! i figure a quart should get me 15 miles.
