Yup it's me.

I know where the mounting points are, however, it seems like I'll need a couple of metal rods to put some distance between the fender and the mounting points cause otherwise the fender will touch the mask on its lower side.....

It has a 840 cc bored out engine and make something like 70 hp at the back wheel ( the standard AT is around 50) but it weights 30/35 kg less

then it has holins and marzocchi, alluminium 35 lt front tank e 2 15lt back ones and so on and on and on...
To make it like this is around 11000 € over the starting bike...

The Seoul of an @

OK.. I sometuimes critisize Seoul for not having Seoul, but this weekend was a little different.
I was looking for a tank bag, because driving into Seoul had been a nightmare without a map with easy access. I picked up a bit of a cheap one for 30 000won, which is close to US$30. All I wanted was a place for my water bottle and map. I'm happy with the rig I got, it's a locally made, probably ripped off design. The strap is DKNY, so I'm sure it's not that on the level. But the label is a Korean company... sorry, I digressed.
I came out of the shop in Chungmurio, which is a motorcycle shopping district (close to 100 various motorcycle shops) and 3 guys on the other side of the street were hollaring at me to come over... so I did. Here's what I saw.

Two were AT owners. So, I pulled up the old RD03 and took some pics.



The next day, I was walking around and came upon this fellow who was watching a street party in the Myeongdong district of Seoul.



There seem to be a lot of 97 RD07s in Korea. I know of 3 more near the town I live in.
After I drove the 6.5 hrs back to Yeosu. I wish I could drive legally on the Expressways here. It's really frustrating as it's hard to get out of Seoul on normal roads. Also, between Seoul and Deajeon, there are light after light. it's a 1/3 the total distance, but takes up more than half the ride. At least the last part of my ride is through JiriSan National Park

My last update...

the back rack is from Africanquuen, it's kind of ktm LC8 style.. the back mud-guard comes as well from AQ (fiberglass), made it black myself...

made black as well the wheels, the front mud-guard is the original without the sides that go on the fork..

The engin protection is the original just painted.. other things will come, I'm waiting for some extra stuff from touratech , I'll probably repaint the fuel tank as it's a bit signed.. then I'll decide what to do with the flames, still the original stickers or.........................?

Ohh , back 47 sprocket on the way...

PS: I don't garanty that I used the right terms as english is not my mother language.. if is not clear, check the pictures and you'll figure it out...

Finally got around on mounting the new front fender. Here's a latest pic, one day before the new tyres (TKC80) were fitted as well.

Watch out for that 21 inch TKC in the wet, it will let go with no warning, before you can say "bugger"!

Hi All,

i just signed up to this forum and because there's no "introduce yourself" thread i'll just do it here since i'll be spending most of my time in this thread.

Was just browsing for some info and pics for AT's when i came across this forum and had lots of both! Wish i had found this earlier.
Few years ago when i started riding motorcycles, i was a bit younger and went for a Honda CBR 600 sportsbike, great bike but when the idea was born to cruise around New Zealand and Australia i had to look for something more allroad. The choice was easy so i bought a 1990 Honda XRV 750 Africa Twin. That's three years ago now and never regretted it.
Unfortunately the rough trip took its toll on the Twin and when i came back i decided it needed some work. And you probably all know how that goes; take some parts of, some more, and some more and before you know it you have a competely stripped frame, and when you're that far, it's just easier to do it right and spraypaint the frame and put new parts on while you're at it. I don't have any transportation so i had to buy something, and guess what? I bought another AT, same model so i can interchange parts and also convenient, whenever i forgot to put which cable, screw, bolt, nut, washer where, i can look at the other one . Next weekend it's bike building weekend again. cant wait!. I'll take some pics and post them soon. The plan is to connect the electrics and get some rumbling from that exhaust!
Allright, hope to get more info and idea's from likeminded adventurers!


Cheers, Edgar.

PS. here are some pics from NZ and OZ:
