Thanks for the pics. I would like to see more from Afghanistan. I recognize the mountains in the back ground of you r pic. Reno, Pevine ? Good luck over there and when you get back, have fun on that orange machine.

My '04 1/2 "S" Model



I bought this baby new in '04 after it had sat in the dealer for 8 months. If you can believe I was the first to make an offer. I always wanted an Africa Twin and this bike rescued my aching heart. You'll notice I painstakingly removed the GO!! decals. Nothing personal LL, but it just doesn't translate like the original Galuoise decals on Meoni's Dakar winner. This photo was before I added the Remus pipes. Rode her through Death Valley on the southern route solo (Mengal Pass) with knobbies of course... She handles like a dream. Love the "S" suspension (smooth as silk) and riding high.


Check out my Death Valley ride report on her.

It's the Cheat River near the point where Bull Run empties into it.
