    Going to look at an RD03 this weekend. Any specifics to look for? I will be checking wheels/front end for play, rust issues and just overall condition. My concern more for the sprocket spline issue I suppose. Other than worn splines anything else there to look for when I check it out. Hoping...
  11. Soft panniers frames?

    Africa Twin
    I installed Enduristan Monsoon soft bags on my RD07 for its maiden (for me) voyage in Europe last month. They worked great, but I had a heck of a time keeping them anchored in once place.
