    Africa Twin
    I've bought my fourth Africa Twin. I just couldn't live without one. Again !! But it's also the highest mileage one I've had at 76,000 miles. I know they're good for a lot more. I've rebuilt one at 55,000 miles for a customer and I really wouldn't have bothered. It looked and rode like new...

  15. Is a scam company?

    Africa Twin
    I made an order there a few weeks back, and they keep saying that the order didn't 'download' properly into their system, even though I got a order confirmation. The payment went through already.
