Circumnavigated the island of Rarotonga ,Cook Islands, all 32kms of it on a Nifty50. Does that qualify as an Adventure.

My mount

Got mine about 10 days ago off ADV loftybob (SA). 2008, 12 weeks old 2505kms when she greeted me off the truck.



Took some advice from magazines and a few Strommers such as Giddy Goanna, Romper Stomper ,Dastrom and due to the exposed oiler filter, oil cooler and pipes



spent some $ on protection. Got Crashbars, Radguard and B&B bashplate.



Spent most of yesterday putting it together.





need some intel on handguards, touratech/barkbusters etc. and am looking at H&B pannier frames. It came with ventura rack and bag. I've got Andystraps on the DR so its portable. What other luggage options have you got. i'll need a decent 20litre or so tankbag and i think I'll be done.

Intention to do a lap of OZ next year. Mick

Great looking Wee there Mick. How did you find fitting the bash plate? Thinking of investing in one of those myself. Also, what was the cost for the bash plate and rad guard if you don't mind me asking?

cheers

Mine goes out in the rain and dirt from time to time.



at other times it plays with it's friends.



or stops to consider whether bash plates are really worth the investment.
