  1. New (old) RD04 service tasks

    Africa Twin

  2. Crosstourer questionnaire

    Honda have launched a questionnaire about the Crosstourer. I've cross-posted in here because it asks about what might be improved to make it more attractive to those who don't want to buy one currently. Might be worth completing (took me just a few minutes).

  7. A newbie asks: Luggage racks

    Africa Twin
    Hi I've got some Allit cases, started making some racks based on Touratech design from photos, 80% of the way I lost enthusiasm, thought I'd buy some but the Touratech, SW-Motech etc racks are pricey... My eye is on the Givi PL kit but they only seem to be listed for the '96-on AT. Mine is a...
