    That used to be my DRZ. When Pumpy test road it she had to stop near a high kerb when she'd finished otherwise she'd have fallen over.

    That's encouraging

    The model I have has the same suspension set up as the Enduro version

    The front feels OK

    You can also use the seat from the 'SM' version to lower it slightly, or you can buy the SM and fit the wheels from the trail version.

    That seat company you mentioned, Paul, has a lowered seat (I have been thoroughly nosing about as I really like the sound of this project).

    You buy the foam and cover and can get lower, standard height or higher with options on the cover of how much grip you want

    I'll have to look at this

    Tony's not too far away

    Did he widen the seat base (foam)?

    Love it. How much do you reckon it weighs now?

    And what's it like cruising the motorway?
