SWM dualsport

Picked up my 18 SWM 650 dualsport , I got the 21 , 18 inch wheel option which comes with spotlights , panniers , hand guards , ABS etc , it's comes in red only with these specs . Good looking bike in the flesh , pics don't do justice at all , fit and finish is good not just for 11500 but good full stop . Engine is torquey , bottom to midrange is nice , not a revvie engine , forks handle jumping over washouts ok , it reminds me of my 450 husky in the steering department , a bit slow in single track , which is exactly where I took it on day one ! The seat might be a bit hard for some but ok for me , I rode it with my mx helmet the wind shield works that well . I'd hop on it tomorrow and travel around Aus no probs ! The ABS is switchable thank farrk , off-road ABS is the antichrist as it is in four wheel drives , at least I can switch it off . I'll keep an "honest " log on how it behaves , the good , the bad , parts , servicing etc .

Nearly 500clicks now , hit the soft sands today , normally pinned on the Gasser , not so on this beast ! I felt like a gumby , dropped some air first which helped , when tyres are due I'll go more aggressive in the pattern . Fuel range is looking good even in the early stages .
