    He doesn't really ride it off road, but with all of those miles he has done no suspension work or maintenance and reports no problems with function. :hide

    Did the 16k mile valve clearance check on my AT at 19k miles. Adjusted one exhaust valve. The air filters saw daylight for the first time since being housed in Japan.

    Photo taken early in the two-weekend maintenance fest.

    Anyone know the width of the stock AT panniers? I'm trying to get an idea in my head of how wide some Bumot panniers would be and my only reference is an AT I test rode with the stock panniers.
