Picked her up yesterday from a 71 year old gent, who bought her new.
He's a Ulysses member and used to do adventure touring, but has ridden less than 3k in the last 18 months. Apparently, Bug was getting a bit heavy for him, so he's got a great deal on a new DR650.
As the screen was causing severe buffeting, I've removed it for now and it's more like a naked ride. She looks a bit odd, but it'll do for the short term. I definitely want the windscreen sorted for Jindabyne, though.
She's travelled 33,000 km, has full service history, 12 month rego and I got change from $6k, so I'm pretty chuffed.
Did a short, dry ride today and the handling is AMAZING. I thought the 19" front wheel would make it a bit vague on fast bends, but the opposite is true.
Bug eats corners faster than Augustus Gloop inhales chocolate.
Will be doing some adventure riding on this baby, so Rox Risers will be fitted quite soon and a centre stand to make servicing easier.
Then I'll sort out some luggage and we'll be set to go exploring.
