Fantastic racks! I never thought I'd say that to a man but you know what I mean, are they homemade?

On another note, who put up that pic of the AT with the stunning bird in red on the front page, and can we have a link to the full pic ?

Thanks

Yup, they're dry bags strapped to a home-made steel frame. It's a cheap, tough, waterproof system. I cut the back off the seat and made up a longer top rack too to carry lighter stuff

Below is a picture of the rack with no luggage (In the middle of a solo, two-hour extraction from a muddy oued).

Anton, the AT owner wish to install a larger tank. I mean a greater capacity tank. there's an italian company which is doing this, located near Cuneo.
Anyone installed such a thing already ?

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
Hey Andy.

Lots of guys from the Danish Transalp/Africa Twin/ Varadero club buy used parts from the Endurobunker, they even have used motors!!! I will let you know if i will be in your area, i have been in Germany alot of times, and Austria, we went on the Grosglockner and around... Let me know if you burn rubber in Denmark, i live in Aarhus secon largest town in Denmark!!!

Salut Thierry,

the company is called Boano, their products are sold in Germany via AfricanQueens with all the papers you need here. I got one on my Transalp, looks like that:



Many people form the German AT club use them in different sizes (AFAIR 34l, 42l and around 50l). They don't fit very well on the bike, but the GFK / fiberglass / epoxy stuff is easy to work with. For the RD07 there is also a nylon tank sold via Touratech which is said to fit better but I did not see it myself yet.

Cheers, Andy

Yeah, it's a nice shop, I got the last stator for my TA from them... they have good prices and ship rather fast.

Thanks for the invitation, I'll give you a call. It's said you have some nice gravel roads up there. The plans for 2009 will lead Hardheader and me to the south: the big sandbox is calling us to go to Tunesia.

Cheers, Andy

Sorry, didn't notice.
I was parked 5km East of Apollo Bay when he came past. Pretty loaded up and had a sheepskin seatcover I think, which makes me think Aussie.
One of the few bikers riding within his limits too............

A bigger tank ads lots of weight, and in the wrong area! Consider that!

Great pictures and I love that blue color!
