I've always though the LCG and durability of an 1100 Wing would lend itself well to enduro type use. Not hardcore offroading due to the weight and low ground clearance. But as a go just about anywhere kind of ride. Looks good man. Great job.

This reminds me of a bike I saw yesterday in Enid, Oklahoma while returning home from Price, Utah.

it was a KLR 650 scrambler, or "Enduro" as I used to call them in the '70s
the owner and I talked for a good while as we enjoyed some of Brahm's Ice Cream products :)

He said he likes it, because it has "long legs", but when he wants to scramble across a Stream Bed, it does so with plenty of ground/water clearance.... and can wade thru 12 inches of water of loose stones with alacrity.

I had a KLR. Very uncomfortable to ride highways and too heavy for off road.
