    Available some places starting in 2000 technically (to 2007). In 2004 they went to a dual spark plug set up. The "Dakar" has a 21" wheel and slightly more suspension travel. Wonderful bikes!

    In principle yes. Also remember the R1100 and R1150 Oilhead surging issue said to be cured (more or less) when they dual plugged the '04 1150 motors.

    An answer to a question nobody should have asked.

    Can anyone come up with a picture of a F650GS in Bronze Green? Color #805 I can not fine one. I know it is a crazy ideal for a wall hanging!
