I vote for the FTW 650 GS - simple, little tongue-in-cheek but factory sounding, and some attitude mixed in.

Speaking of attitude, you should mount at ATV tire on the rear, then it would really be the king of the trail!! The Maxxis Bighorn works great on the TW200. Really isn't bad on pavement, either. Of course this will be a lot more horsepower on the rear...

Got a build thread on the baja? ShopTalkForums or theSamba?

Sweet scooter, btw! You could do some funny forced perspective pics next to a real TW...

i dont know why the dakar doesnt come with a chain guide so i got a chain guide off a 03 to 08 yz125 so replacement inner plastic guides would be cheap and easy to get. had to make a mounting bracket to make it fit.

i just cut some square tube and welded it to a piece of flat 1/4 inch steel then welded that to the swingarm for the chain guide mount.
