I believe there is even a bounty for Brit flags.

Holan look great but I dont think we can still get them

You can buy from the US vendor, Jason of advmotorrad (check the vendor forum), very nice guy. Or order directly from holan.pl. Aleksandra is very quick to respond to email.

Umm, don't look now but your cover has been broken. It's not that the 'Stealth' mode is down.
It's the thing is freaking big enough to have it's own weather system and is being tracked by that.

There is also a rumor it may be affecting local tide patterns as well.

I can see why you posted this in the "Super Tenere XT1200 BIG Thread" instead of the "Show us your bikes" thread.

Well if it's a bitch slap it will truly feel like it came from you.

Wow, that would have been awesome when I got stuck here for 25 minutes last weekend.


or 20 feet later when I got stuck here for 20 more minutes. May have to look into that. Although hard to imagine the plastic holding on for much weight.

I'm thinking, as was mentioned earlier, that the winch is intended to come off the bike to be used, that the rear rack is merely a storage position. Makes sense since the rack is rated for something like 11 lbs (granted that's conservative for reasons of litigation). Might be different if it was mounted to the Altrider or SW Motech racks...

But I could be wrong.
