Great review lighting. I hear you loud and clear about Aussie distributors, really poor stocking of anything DL650 related and although the US sites such as AMS have lisitings for DL650 versions the supposed Aussie distributors dont even see fit to update thier websites to show them DL on them.
I have had my bike about a month now (had suzi centre stand, Givi crash bars and Ventura rack & Bag delivered with bike), and have been shopping for more stuff since, aaaarrrggghhh! How frustrating to see all our American and European brothers and sisters with these accessory manufacturers on thier doorstep and we have zip.
So.... I have ordered the following from overseas
Hyperlites - still waiting on delivery (11 days so far)
Sampson Sport Touring Beads (both seats) - ordered yesterday
Cramp buster (only cause Sampson can send it with the beads for zip)
Fenda Extenda - AMS - Ordered today
Ventura light gaurds - AMS - ordered today
Dan C Skid Plate - Ordering tonight
Dan C Radiator/Oil cooler guard - ordering tonight
Dan C Luggage guard - ordering tonight
I will most likely be going for the madstad sometime soon and as I live in WA will check out Eagle Screens in Perth next time I'm down there to see what they offer.
One Aussie maufacturer I did consder but was a little hesitant to fork out the quids just yet was www.sheepyhollow.com
they have a very good website and make each cover to order, and yes....they list the DL650.
I have read some very good feedback on them and was very tempted but thought I would give the beads a go (much cheaper option first up)
