If you still have the NA 603, you may want to upgrade to the turbo motor as Mark/Inkblotz has done. Those 603 motors are tough as hell with hydraulic valves and piston oil squirters. They are built for longevity. They have stronger con rods than the 606a and it may be a better choice in the long run to turbo your motor +/- a modified IP to get the power you want out of it.
Oh trust me I have thought about it continually. Just haven't quite hit that need yet, though I do admit it would be great to have and a good move going forward. Maybe if someone PM'd me with the perfect engine for sale lol

haha. AC is appealing but I think you have me confused with someone else who would sell their SWB

People travel the world on motorcycles with a small amount of compact gear. You can make a nice camp with a SWB if you change your expectations and are happy with something other than a mobile living room.
I mean, I've been having a blast with the rooftop tent, I just want something more stealth so I can sleep in it near surf breaks and not have to worry so much.
