Re: Southwest Meet 05/03/2011

Will certainly try to keep it SSU.

Bike sparklingly clean, chain lubed and adjusted, FS365'd, wiring sorted out (majorly bodged on foglights). I think I'm ready for a ride tomorrow! B)

Re: Who's top dog in 'adventure' and 'touring'?

I think Kawasaki have some way to go yet, but I believe that BMW definately has it nailed as the top dog for adventure and touring bikes. They have the K1300s & GT, R1200RT, R1200GS/A, F800GS,F650GS etc etc. They literally are the benchmark by which all manufacturers attempt to build a rival machine...

Re: versys

Not sure really, depends. But a Versys frame and swinger will probably be more sufficient for the heavier weight as the bike weighs circa 200kg's. The front end is from the looks of things, pinched from a V-strom, its definately a Suzuki wheel on there. Light off-roading on this thing would be fine,...

Re: versys

The seem adaptable 1003903145_ctoRF-M.jpg 975678522_Hcwt6-M.jpg Thats an ER6n on stilts. The clue is in the swingarm, the Versys uses a gullarm, whilst the er6 uses a much spindlier swinger. @ Mark 1150, the ER6 / ER6f have side mounted shocks also, sharing the same engine as the versys but in slig...

The engine is perky, picking up torque at ar...
