That's funny. And I though I got weird looks when I pulled up to the feed store for a 50 pound bag of dog food on mine.

Don't know of any built specifically for the Elefant but they're pretty easy to make up yourself from something like this: Just cut out and bend to fit. I've seen some really nice ones made this way....

They're made out of PA(polyamide)6 nylon. Basically the same stuff your toothbrush bristles are made out of. It can be sanded, primered and painted.

Nice looking 'fant. Remarkable how well it holds up in both ability and looks against two decade newer machines isn't it.

Ducati hasn't made a bevel since the 80's. The cams do not need to be removed from a 2 valve for maintenance. In fact they're pretty simple to work on. I'd much rather maintain a desmodue than most...

Someone with a 3-D printer could make a few bucks building those chain sliders. Heck, it wouldn't take too many to justify the purchase of one.

Excellent assessment of the Elefant. Running it up to 11 grand might explain the clacking valves though. Sure is fun but I try to avoid it in the interest of fewer valve adjustments. Nice write-up...

Two years ago Tracy said the 'strada would be the bike to beat for some time. He was right. Desmo-rific! I've wondered why nobody has fielded a Dakar team?

I'm not sure the 'strada would be that bad off-road. At least with the right tires. The 1200 Ducati is 485 wet while the KTM is 460 dry. If you go a few years old an 1100 Multistrada is only 432 dry,...

If you're not discounting singles and don't mind old a mid 80's XL600 is around 300. As for twins an Elefant comes in around 420. They're getting hard to come by due to their age though.
