Getting a rack & buying a Suzi
We will be travelling around Australia, bush camping, for 18 months in a small bus, towing a couple of bikes to take us to the places the bus wont go, (as well as as nipping into town to get some milk). I want to set the bikes up to carry camping gear, water & 10l litres fuel (in a plastic jerry can) & spares, to allow us a range of 400 - 500kms & the ability to 'go bush' for several days at a time. I will probably get a Suzuki DR-Z250, & my wife has a Honda SL230, just purchased. Will need to put a rack on the rear of each bike. I think there are probably racks available for the Suzuki(?) but less so for the Honda, it being a somewhat obscure little model.
Does anyone know if I can get a rack for the SL230 anywhere (2000 model), or will I need to get one made/make one?
Any recommendations for racks for the DR-Z250?
Whilst I'm asking, anyone know of any specific problems with the DR-Z250's (Post 2000) I should look out for when buying
