    Looks like the grab handles are gone, and the cat is moved up in front of your right foot. The sub frame is a bolt on.

    Still nothing about a suspension upgrade.

    Not a fan of "what a bike is capable of" after watching a youtube video.
    But this time I can say that bike would be a better RTW bike than the CRF1000. :)

    Well i'm fuckin thrilled with mine so far.
    It just a bit more than i'd hoped for and works well in single line. I wash it after every ride.

    Thats the new baby Africa. Expected to have 750-850cc capacity and to rival with BMW F850, Yammy T7 etc. Nothing to do with the confirmed 1100.

    No offense to anyone, but maybe a "2020 Africa Twin Musings" would be an appropriate new thread for this chatter?

    I don't think that is correct. Open the link, it says the pics are of the 2020 AT. Compare those to these pics of the supposed AT 850.

    I posted some questions about a short windscreen a couple pages back. I ended up getting the Givi. While I hate the black finish, at least on my black motorcycle, it works as I had hoped, at this point. Brings the air over the screen a little lower so I get more air flow to the top and middle of my helmet but doesn't bring it so low that the wind is hitting under my helmet making things loud. Only tried it with my XD4 and the peak vibration is less than with the OEM screen. I will probably wear my RF-1200 tomorrow going to work and see how that helmet reacts to the lower airflow. I am am 5'9" FWIW.

    I'm 6 foot and I use a short screen too. My personal preference is for full air on my helmet.
