Thank you.
I didn't know the situation about Africa in US.
If you need something write to me a private message.
As soon as I will do something new, and I will, I will post other photo.


Ciao

Paolo

Yep, I like em, on my 3rd set. Better on the dirt than any other universal ive tried, they get real good drive. Fine on the tar, a little slippy on cold wet tar but nothing to dramatic, about 5000km out of a rear but remember I weigh 140kg so Im basically 2 up all the time. Im really keen to try the Mitas E09 but the Aus importer doesn't bring them in, Im trying to get a set from NZ to try.

LOL greg, not sure about the kg conversion from the yankee weights and measures but i am pretty much two up by myself as well. just mounted a set of e-09's today so i'll let ya know how they wear in, so far they are smooth and seem great in turns and slide predictably on dirt, but i'm only on about 30km so i dont really know anything yet.

Me new toy. Got it by accident when I sold mij Dakar, but I'm actually really stoked with it. This one is going to stay for a while!



It's a 93 RD07 with nearly 60k km. The previueos owner already ungraded the suspension. Runs like new!

My buddy has an Afrika Twin 750, here in the states. I road it up to DMV for him to get his mc license. It was the bike that brought me full circle, to start riding street again. I was very disappointed to learn how rare they are here. It seemed to have everything I wanted...except after riding it for short while, I realized it is pretty lame in the power deptartment. I would be wringing it far all it had, and my buds on GS's would just walk off and leave me. This was in high wind west texas plains....but still disheartening. BTW , I weigh 190+- and 5'9" Is there an easy hop-up as he is thinking of selling it?

The AT is obviously only a 750 v-twin against the 1100cc+ GSs, so it will struggle (AT is 60hp/46lbft - 1100GS is 80hp/72lbft).

In theory, the African Queens Stage 2 kit will take the bike up to 78hp and 65lbft (both at the rear wheel), and the kit includes a displacement bump to 836cc, but they don't quote a cost online at the moment - they're waiting to see what Honda release at Intermot and EICMA before deciding whether they will re-release the kit.
