It was tempting but and you are 100% on the color being My biggest issue were the two other bikes I acquired over the winter 89 Dr 750 Big and a mint 75 Honda TL250 plus a TransAlp I have been restoring (plastics hard to come by around here) the last 2 years. I think the wife might have noticed another bike especially that purdy AT. Glad to here it found a "good home" finally!

They are becoming more rare in Canada.
My Yamaha 750 Super Tenere keeps sucking them up the tailpipe.
The imported ones have a nice European flavour.

Well no pics of mine in Canada yet as I just got it through customs and all that... To be honest, having issues getting insurance as they say my VIN is invalid... in any case that will get sorted.

Here are a couple pics from Europe, where I picked it up.

When I first got it...


After some mods..



After a little Tiger hunting...



And finally on a trip through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Italy and back to Germany.

Bring rain gear.
Buy you a beer if you need time to dry out.

2014 canadian africa twin meet ???

ANYONE HAVE ANY INTEREST IN A 2014 CANADIAN AFRICA TWIN MEET.

YOU MUST BRING YOUR AFRICA TWIN.

( WE COULD ALSO INCLUDE TRANSALPS )

if Canada is too big maybe we can do an Ontario meet.

i can host it in THUNDER BAY , ONT.
i have hosted rallies before so i am pretty well set up.
this might not be a central location for many of us.
IS ANYONE INTERESTED AT ALL ? ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS ?
