How about a Mastiff?



Bought this beast from Perry in Ft Worth several years ago. He laced on some massive wheels and played a bit with the tuning. Rode it for a year or so and then passed it on to my son. The bike now lives on Aberdeen Proving Grounds and prowls a bit in the nearby area.

Yes, he's a bit of a fuddy duddy, but still plenty capable.

From what I know in general yeah, and me specifically for sure. It's a 3.3 gallon tank, so I don't get much more than 120 miles between fillups, but then that means I pass about 30 gas stations too, so no biggie. Not what I'd want out in the desert I guess.

Grandpa Saxon has a six gallon tank and averages 62mpg. Doesn't go on reserve until 300+ miles.

Luggage for Baghira/Mastiff?

Hi, has anybody bought or made a rack to carry hard luggage on a Baghira or Mastiff? My mate and I want to put Alpos Alu boxes on but can't find a rack! If you have made your own how about some pictures to give us a clue? Any mistakes been made that you can tell us about so we don't make them?

Any help and advice appreciated

Matt

check out Touratech. They have a rack system for the Baghira. http://www.touratech-usa.com/shop/eu...4B1ESgmv7893C0

I keep looking at those and choke on the $400 cost for simple tubing and bolt together assy. Still think a local tube bender/welder could build a stouter job for not much more than 1/2 the price.

Had mine for about a year now (a 2003 Baghira Street Moto) and have to say it's the funnest bike I think I've owned. After coming off 11 years of Ducatis, then a Z1000, this thing has a grin factor not equaled by any of those bikes. Has given me the freedom to pretty much ride anywhere I've wanted to go, yet still just RIPS through the moutains when I want to do that too.

Haven't done too much yet, but first thing to be done was the Rich's Custom seat, turning the Baggi into a all day machine. Have a D&D slip on, a Hepco&Becker rear rack, Wolfman enduro tank bag, Pro Taper Contour (CR high) handlebars and mount kit, RAM GPS mount, CRG mirrors, and ProGrip grips. Other than that, just tires and brake pads and let's go riding.

The forks are taken from a CRF 450 Crosser, they are Ohlins 45mm. i shortened them by 75mm and converted the wheel spindle position to a bushed pivot for the loop. This takes the wheel forwards 85mm to lighten the steering for the outfit. the loop is anchored at the rear by two tie rods.
The rear shock has been stiffened up to take the extra weight 75-250-105
Dual rated spring.
Thanks for the interest.
