Had it shipped to Wisconsin, cleaned the carbs and it performs like a new bike. Have added the skid plate and crashbars, soon a ss brakeline, some T63's and a few other add ons. So far so good!!
Only 1900 miles! Good as new....break it in gently.

"Almost no other bike has the road presence of the Africa Twin and cars seem to melt out of its way, once they see the angry glare of its lights in their mirrors." ...
