Anyone else notice the obvious and tragic flaws about this bike?
Er, the mirrors are set to 'vanity' mode? The chain is too tight? The back tyre is on the wrong way around? The brake lights aren't visible from behind? It's on a trailer? It's still got the original plank/seat?
So...what's wrong with it?
Man, this thread just keeps getting worse and worse for my condition. Yer killin' me!
Keep it comin'.
Took our new addition to the family (XLV/XRV familiy) for a ride today. She's worth every penny. Excellent condition and just what the doctor ordered. Here with her older sister, XLV750R. See ya out there!!
Imho- way too clean and on a trailer!
Sweet ride... I've always loved those colors!
A link for all the scandinavian ppl in here this site is in Swedish only (Well except for some danish and norwegian).
Got some nice pic and video, especially the one where an AT makes a KTM dissapear in the mirror on a gravelroad at 166kph (about 110mph).. :O
A flat tyre on my AT on the weekend !!!
Well, at least you didn't get your hands full chain shit.
Did you just pull half the tire off for a patch or did you replace the whole tube?
Oh yeah, what tires are you running Greg?
we just broke one side of the bead and replaced the tube. The Tyres are Mitas (used to be barum) E07's, Im pretty impressed with them.
From the same ride.
"The Pudding" and the AT , I was lucky enough to be a "Pudding Carrier"
A good fire !!!
"The Pudding" and the AT again.
Tell me more about this... "pudding" :huh
See this thread,
for some info and links about the pudding. Basically it's a tinned Pudding thats been travelling Oz by bike for 28 years. It's a great honour to carry it.
Ahh... like the Olympic torch. I can dig it.
How did you get an @ in Canada?
So is the pudding hermetically sealed in acrylic?
I guess that way on long rides the carrier isn't tempted to eat it?
There are rules for eating the pudding. As the contents have been around a while ... they used to rattle around inside the tin - sounded like one squash ball to me, there is no way I'd want to eat it. I think it has now gone mushy ... I'm amazed that quarantine has not picked it up.
So is it encased in acrylic? If so, it has been "pre quarantined"!
I picked up this fine example of an Africa Twin a couple of weeks ago. The only objection was the pink lettering. Some of you suggested to keep the bike the way it came from the factory. I find it difficult to live with the color. So, I purchased some aftermarket lettering in anthracyte (dark metallic grey) and started to remove the hot pink on the side panels and a small splash on the front. I'm waiting for the grey lettering to show up before I take off the bigger pink ones. I like the bike's color scheme without the pink. I'm keeping it that way and adding the grey.
As an aside, when I went to get the VIN verified (Colorado step to getting anything registered) the guy doing the verifying is also a rider. He said he thought he knew every model Honda had made but this was a new one on him. I kept my mouth shut.
