RD’s and GS’s all in one post!

Sorry. Been a little hit and miss this week. Been chasing electrical gremlins on the DR650.  All sorted out now.  Who would imagine a battery going bad after sitting in a cold garage for six months.  😛

Getting her set up for some traveling this spring to assorted shows and may even turn her into a full time commuter if the price of gas keeps going the way it has.  35-38mpg (Yes I’m a bit “harsh” with the throttle) sure beats my truck.

Anyhow…  here’s another victim of the spam filter.

A few of my brother’s bikes over the years. He was a 2-stroke guy with his RD400’s but then became a BMW kinda guy, first with R65LS’s, three to date, and later with R100GS’s, he’s on his second. The latest one he’s made into an R65LS lookalike since he never rides off-road. The gold RD400 was very highly modified with DG heads, pipes and swingarm, Lectron carbs, home made rear sets and seat, fork brace, braided steel brake lines, Tomasselli clip-ons and a custom made (by me) wiring harness which allowed the whole front part, fairing, headlight and all instruments and controls to be disconnected and removed with one massive multi-wire connection (from a car) for ease of maintenance which there was always a lot. In one racing weekend he changed three left pistons due to a crankcase seal air leak. Good times and they aren’t over yet.
