Remove the rack? :ear






That is exactly what I'm stuck on! WR would have an oversized booty, and I can't see it being any good. If the bags extended out a little beyond the bars, I could...

The subframe is built fairly burly from what I can tell. However, last year, I was faced with a dilemma. How to attach a GL Coyote, rotopax, Kriega US30, and a heavy pelican case on the rear? Many...

Dear Gurus

Hey everyone! I hope winter hasn't been too tough for some of you. I recall reading about a regulator upgrade, and some additional information on the connection. I've started at page 2,000, and...

The poles were originally attached to the rotopax handle, and may have offered up to 2% bike stability. :lol3 They were used to attach the hammock straps and tarp. We had use of a massive log,...

The wings

My stepdads gold wing has reverse, it's a really sweet feature. Makes me wish the wr250 had it, too.

Edit: Maybe the new Africa will have reverse. And a hi/low range. :1drink
