Default My first gypsy King

this is my first Gypsy King, the reason for me choosing it was very simple.
1. the the space at the back allows me to put a Dirt bike / quad and tarnsport it where ever i want.
2. 4X4 capabilites.
3. I think it looks great.

let me know what you guys think?
I am still looking for off roading tyres for it. however they are hard to come by in punjab. please let me know if someone know of any good ones available.

cheers

Hamare Pilot Baba,
It is a well proportioned vehicle, compact, good power to weight ratio,good highway cruiser, great off-roader, turns into a convertible within minutes and it also can carry dirt bikes.
I am going to go for this one soon, but you will have to lend me your dirt bike.
Regards,

Sali,
Even after building four 540/550's I immensly like them, of course the THAR is my very very first choice, there is still some time for it to roll out.
Meanwhile I would like to have a Gypsy for its own merits and advantages and in the future have both the THAR and the Gypsy as both are good on and off-roaders.
Regards,

Same way he put it up. Just kidding mate, I think he will need a ramp or a suface where he can get the Quad off the Gypsy.

To Answer both of you guys. I do not have a Ramp. 2 people can very easily lift and secure the ATV on top.
However, 2 problems still remained that i wanted to solve.
1. how to carry both Dirtbike and Atv.
2. how to do it with one man.

Solution: Modified trailer at the back of the gypsy and dirtbike at the back of the cab.
now i am truly free to go and take these toys wherever i want.

I ll post a pic of the trailer with both loaded so you guys can critique it.

cheers

Pilotbaba,
You are living life king size. Dirt bike, quad on a trailer going great guns!!

I love Gypsy but for its articulation abilities. Solve the articulation problem Suzuki, you have a Mahindra convert waiting for you with a cheque

Pilotbaba, why don't you make nice trailer for carrying ATV's and dirt bikes, tow hooks for gypsy's are widely available.Nice Gypsy though.

@Vinod, I think lot of people are already converting from mahindra to Suzuki. There is lot of aftermart stuff available to improve articulation in gypsy.
