    I don't know why, but I'm super amused by the fact that it's a pull start!

    ^ OMG the Holly grail (for me) for a bike. I have the under powered Gas version, wold love to get my hands on one of them! I have even seen someplace that a parallel twin will do well. Need a donor bike though.

    Here's a pic showing one of my riding buddies KLR. He painted it in the desert sand motive to mimic the military diesel bikes.
    We're filling up here at the end of the Trans-Taiga highway, the most remote area in North America. At this point I think you're about 800 kms from pavement.

    ^ talk that one down a little and that would be a keeper. Only one pic but I would guess it looks good. I wonder how the gas tank is inside? How well did they clean them carbs :)

    If it is true, that's a pretty friggin' rad Rad... maybe not $7500 rad, but rad nonetheless.
