Foot pegs

I am looking to upgrade the footpegs on the AT and I like the fastways and they have a new Adventure peg but doesn't look like they are making anything for ther AT in those. What suggestions do you guys have. I would like something a little wider as my legs are pretty bowed standing up which I am doing most of the time. Cheers

Sending up a FLARE

Fellas,

Just discovered that Jim Rowley is ill.

For those of us that have ridden with him, you know he'd never volunteer this information easily.....however what follows is a post from Jim on the Transalp site to another inmate with cancer.

Dave, get well soon. It seems we're both in similar boats. Mine was not on the kidney but the left adrenal gland. It was an 8 cm sarcoma tumor. I'm sporting a seven inch scar now. I start radiation therapy any day now, but not on weekends. It seems that cancer cells don't work on weekends. The best thing I've done for myself is changing my diet. I've gone vegetarian. No meat and no dairy, some fish. I'll send good thoughts and vibes your way.

Jim.

From when he was still a carnivor.............



I know we can take it from here....................................

Hey Jim, I am wishing you a speedy recovery. I know you have really helped a lot of people out here on ADV with your bike advise. Hopefully you can entertain yourself reading some great threads as you recover. I know that even though I sold my AT a couple of weeks ago after I lost the battle with the angle grinder I am finding myself cruising the fleamarket trying to figure out what bike might be fun in the future. I am reading some great threads that I didn't have time to read before. I look forward to reading about your bike builds in the future once you kick this thing.

Thanks for all the support guys. It helps a lot. Last Thursday marked the end of my six weeks of no lifting anything over ten pounds. I got adventurous and started all the bikes up in the garage yesterday. I even thought about getting a ride in before my radiation treatments start but Mother Nature had second thoughts. It's snowing.

On an AT note, I've been working on my new rear fender. Still in progress but getting there.

I have XR400 pegs that bolt straight on. No rubber, all teeth as per XR spec so they offer more support. Much better grip for boots.

Really?

Not that I doubt you but can anyone confirm the direct bolt up of the XR pegs? Maybe a pic?

I don't have a pic but can confirm that XR pegs will fit. I have them on both the AT and TA.

Jim, will any XR pegs fit or do I need to look at a certain model or year range? Cheers

internatinal bike of the year I.B.O.T.Y.

hello AFRICA TWIN twin lovers.Here in Greece most peole ( who love bikes) read a magazine called MOTO. This month it had the results of iboty after measuring the votes of the most popular moto magazines from around the world.as usual over the past years brand new and expensive bikes won .Exept fromSLOVENIA.In that country their magazine tested for a week these bikes. Aprilia Dorsoduo 1200, BMW 1200gsadventure, Moto Gyzzi Stelvio and decided that the best bike to own is AFRICA TWIN 750 1995.The year model is not that important. the thought behind it is that why leave such a well built motorcycle with as they say "a velvet motor engine" unbreakable and lasting structure to pay all that extra money and buy something with few extra horsepower and some gadgets when you can simply maintain this beautiful bike. from the little i understud from the article they propably had an africa as a backup during this test.A couple of years ago the greek magazine i told before also tested a BMW 1200 GS a HONDA VARADERO and KTM ADVENTURE 990. They also had an Africa with them.A fter the test the Africa was working perfecty and its disadvantages were less power and not that comfortable seat. Their conclusion? Africas ages better than all the others and will keep on working as smooth as the first time they were fired up when the others will be replaced by a "new" model .MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR THE BIKE BUILDERS TO STOP AND LISTEN TO THE RIDERS THAN THEIR MARCETIKING DEPARTMENTS. THEY CAN STILL MAKE MONEY FROM THE SARE PARTS.
