    Just can´t imagine why there aren´t any 644DS owners active on the forum. I´ve owned mine since 2003. It´s been through a great many overhauls and I can´t imagine ever having to give up on it.I`ve also got a Flat Tracker (just for when I´m tinkering on the 644). The Spitfire is on my wish list, but I´m within the EU and would never be able to get it registered. Spares for my 644 aren´t a great problem and I expect it might well last longer´n me (I´ll be 85 this year).

    Yes not sure why….I guess many of them bought second hand so no direct relation with the brand

    I’ve got a 644DS too. Only had it about four years, but I’ve still got it.

    Yeah, it’s a pity that the forum is quiet as regards the 644DS, but I suppose they are getting on for 20 years old now! There used to be a great 604 and 644 forum but sadly it shut down some years ago.

    Anyway, mine is another bought new in 2003. I was looking for a bike for green laning and after reading a ride report in a magazine I had to have one, in yellow. Did some green laning but found it a bit heavy in the nadgery stuff (due partly to my lack of skill) and so bought another bike and kept the CCM for road use with the super-moto wheels fitted. My bike is bog-standard, very low mileage and pretty much mint and not ridden when salt on the roads.

    Low mileage due to lack of time and having other bikes. Not used for a few years as wouldn’t run properly due probably to gummed up carbs. but looking to getting it sorted soon.
