I believe there are six lights in the cluster; neutral indicator, high beam indicator, turn signal indicator, oil pressure light, low fuel and really low fuel.

The yellow light on top is the kickstand indicator.

At least you don't have to worry about food once you hit camp.

Laugh

Went for the Mitas E-07 in the end! Re-fitted the MIG carbon can, and changed the plugs today. I think after seeing how kippered the old plugs were might explain my rather poor MPG!!

Hello,

since yesterday I'm finally a AfricaTwin owner!

I bought a RD04 SW Mo-tech rallye conversion with a WP Extreme fork and Tecnoflex shock.:

Enough for Europe!
Sometimes I'm laughing about guys in Germany with 45 liter fuel tanks riding 1000 km per year

If I should need more fuel I can still put a stock RD04 fuel tank on it. I already have a black one for my Transalp waiting in my garage.

mind you,

try and find fuel on a Sunday Evening in the Highlands of Scotland

Thanks Raymo, if I plan a trip to Scotland someday I put on the RD04 tank.

And I need one empty box to carry a few bottles of good Scotch whisky back home

One box or one bottle??? Interesting choice ...
I bought my SR 41 Suzuki DR 750 Big with it's 29 liters-tank to get from Linz-on-the-Rhine to my friends at Stuttgart without the need of re-fueling - usually on late friday-nights with all the Odenwald-gas-stations shut down ... Problem is, that - up to this moment - I mostly carry around some 15 liters of gas in my (right-hand) tank as the connection between the two halves doesn't work properly ... ... but sometimes it does, that's the mystery!
But still kind regards, Bambi
PS: nice bike you've got!!! How about a shot of the front-view?
