[quote=Tim]Hey Ozcan, forget about US/Canadian trips, buy my RD-04 that's in the Flea Market (shameless plug) and have a bike in Europe!



Flea Market

Hey Tim, We did 12,000 km on an IDENTICAL RD04 to yours... seven countries in Western Europe... four months in the saddle.
Cheers,
Paul

All opinions are welcome in my universe, even negative ones! If everybody had the same taste the world would be boring!!!

But i would like to know what exactly is poor about it?

I like it though, and yes a sixpack fits right on, even a 5 liter Warsteiner barrel i think .

Best regards Iver

I think it looks great, a really neat job. I sure wish I had the skills to do something like that

To go on a transalp...I already have arm, etc. Even just a hub would be fine!

Cheers

Thanks CbrPaddy.

I must admit that i took me some time to shape and bend the aluminium plate to make the luggage carrier, but cutting the mudguard was easy, i bought an extra mudguard from http://endurobunker.de/default.asp its a shop in Austria with used parts, so if i fucked up i would still have my old one......

Best regards Iver

Its in Germany, Bavaria, main location Lenting, branch in Dachau. Very close to my home. Never mix Bavarians with Austrians, could bring you in danger

Never mind, it's just bit like with Danes and Swedish... a danish friend always says they send the people they don't like to sweden or the Kiwi/Aussie thing...

I've been to the branch shop in Dachau, but AFAIR it's more or less a quite normal motocross shop and dealer for Husqvarna, Husaberg and KTM. But it was some years ago, maybe something changed there. The main location in Lenting is where they keep the parts and have their workshop. I haven't been there. If you come over here let me know, there are two pretty cool guys having shops around here. One is doing all kind of MC stuff, the other one used spare parts for japanese Enduros. He's a big source of info which part of which manufakturer fits which bike of another brand...

Cheers, Andy

I really like your pack setup. Dry bags on the side?

Cheers

That is a sweet setup.
Lots of capacity and liquids carried low and central.

Oh yeah, morocco looks fantastic!
