    Thanks, I appreciate that! I wanted it to look like if Honda did a factory high fender.

    The Camel ADV high fender kit is very comprehensive and well done. It's a $20 Polisport fender with $50 in OE Honda ATAS fender decals. Spent a lot time on fitment to clear the OE light bar and Hepco & Becker bow brace and again on decal placement and trimming.

    At some point I'm going to install carbon fork guards with metallic white vinyl wrap since the Acerbis fork guards are matte white and are easily stained.

    Here's the install with photos from other angles so you can amend your opinion if you choose! :D

    Is that seat the stock seat...??
    Looks like a aftermarket from this angle.

    Yep thats it.
    The seat is a seat concepts rally seat. Gripper top carbon sides. Rear seat is just the cover. I like the seat a lot .

    I ride a manual, but that vid sparked my DCT curiosity. And I never thought that would be the case because I ride dirt bike, and so far I've even resisted the Recluse on those things.

    Every tool has its place and use.
    I consider DCT a very comprehensive tool kit :)

    Three of us spent the week of Thanksgiving riding the backroads of northeast Mexico. Two of us were on Africa Twins - me on my 2018 AT DCT and my buddy Garth on his 2019 ATAS DCT. I'm in the process of creating a video ride report. Here's the first one - hope you enjoy it.
