My bike

It’s a handsome bike, my Kuda (meaning horse in Malay): BMW F650GS Dakar, year 2006.

In my case, the modifications deemed necessary were :

  • 1″ Koubalink to lower overall height of bike
  • centre stand which is not stock supply
  • adjustable pedal height for comfort
  • homemade radiator guards
  • Jesse panniers

On the other hand, below add-ons while handy are not really necessary. Can live without, but when the long distance rider’s folly strikes its hard to resist not going for these:

  • toolbox in front of engine
  • Hawker pure lead battery
  • 25mm handlebar risers
  • fuse panel box in bike’s glove compartment
  • 12V cigarette socket on number plate
  • 12V cigarette socket on handlebar
  • hazard lights
  • gps Zumo 550
