Edelweiss is OK Too

FYI Edelweiss tours won't restrict you to riding with a select group or pace. You can even travel alone . . . if that's your thing. Even when travelling with others along with a guide, you will be...

Lowered Footpegs

SW-Motech do a nice set of grippy footpegs. Like the older TransAlps, they feature removable rubber pads - tho' the rubber is harder & less absorbing of vibration, I feel. They have two mounting...

Too Late in the Game

You described your 'on the road' lifestyle with aplomb, I think. You seem to be a throw back to earlier times before wealth and interstates. Before we all 'grew up.'

Thanks for taking the time...

Old vs New T/A

Jumping of my '89 onto an '06 I felt immediately at home & on a very familiar bike. However, the '06 was, at the time, new and that was the major difference.

You might try a Chinese clone engine
