    Unless he's a person of reduced stature, or whatever the PC term is today. It would improve the power/weight ratio:lol3

    Great pictures, Greg. I'm getting a hankering for one of those African Queens fairings now!

    Cheers

    Well, I think he may well be, um... vertically challenged, but it's still a monster of a bike. Look at the space between the tire and the fender. Looks like there's some kind of pad or something on the tank to rest his chin on, though. :rofl

    That is a sweet ride. On the Xrv.org.uk a guy knocked 15kg of an RD04, wonder how much you could knock off one of these?
    Even BMW made the new 1200gs lose some weight... Honda are you listening???

    Hey, i'm looking for a nice smallish tankbag with a mapview panel on top. Any recommendations? I'm wondering how it'd fit on an RD03 tank. I wish I had a shop to go and see, but unfortunately, I'm stuck ordering, so advice would be very qwelcome... photos too if you have em.
    Cheers:freaky

    Macosie,

    A Wolfman Explorer Lite fits nicely on my RD07, and doesn't get in the way when standing up.

    Hi Cie, how's the decorating?

    Cheers
