I forgot about the crate in the background as it's actually the same bike.

All. That one bike does everything I need. Mitts come off during the summer, pannier frames stop it falling over too far when I'm off road, sheep comes off when I'm travelling local, all my camping gear fits on it. ;)

Bigger engine, bigger tank, discs, Screen & Bark busters, Airhawk or similar (I'm not welsh enough to want to ride sheep).
I have a cunning plan.......

I prefer something that can be fixed if/ when it goes wrong. Try fixing a Honda or BMW without a computer.

636. 21 litres. Rear MT disc is shite, 500 drum is much better. Don't need a screen. Bark busters under the mitts.
