Hey all-
this spring I needed to change things up, I had owned a 2003 BMW R1150RT for 3 years as a companion to my DR650 and the beemer had to go, too nice for me. So I sold her off and started looking for a wee. I found a totally farkled out 2005 with 21K on it for a reasonable price. After riding that for a few thousand miles I realized I did not really need the DR. I really only ride dirt roads and the wee seemed to handle those fine so I go trid of the DR. It was a tough move, I had put 53K on the DR and a lot of farkling, but I really like having only one bike, so off she went.
When I say the wee I bought was really loaded, I mean over loaded. I have had her on a diet and she is getting down to fighting weight. Best mod yet was to make a new plate to replace the SW-motech top case mount - 2 plate system, I made a single plate bolted straight to the stock rack. I have 2 sets of holes so I can move the plate/case back 4" to make room for a pillion. I also replaced the buell footpegs with SW's. The buell's were too low and too wide, they dragged too much and it was hard to reach the shifter/brake.
So far I am loving the DL
