NEW!!! - Modifications to my frame and suspension
This is a quick series of photos which I will add substantial text and explanation to later.
The photos are a result of our decision to replace the BMW frame with a reinforced BMW frame, the replacement of the stock Dakar suspension with a 250mm WP USD suspension, and major changes to the bike's controls and rider cockpit.
I just got these back and wanted to put them up - so here they are. As is the standard on my site, clicking on a file will take you to the original large format picture - available later when I have more time and organize the pictures more.
Sorry that this page takes long to load as I just put them all up on this page..
