Dr Z 400 Sm
No worries Patrick.
The price works out at 2500 GBP, which I reckon is a bargain for a new 400 SM. No tax of course
No S models. It's pretty much a case of whatever they have.. orders can take a while unless you are buying from the BMW or Harley dealer in town. Its also getting hotter now and we will not be able to ride from June until September.
Sports bikes are the main deal here, although the dealer has a few hard core RM's for dune bashing.
My mate Jarkko (mad Finn) has a Dominator and I reckon I can set the SM up for less than $1000. We will do about 30% tarmac & 70% rocky/gravelly trails, with the odd bit of sand thrown in.
I like playing with bikes so will look at getting the subframe strengthened here, doing the mods and getting an aluminium rack and panniers made up.. some good welders and labour rates are low (and I am a Structural Engineer, which helps). Will keep posting when (if ever) I set off back from here!
