I just joined the Africa Twin group in Panoramio, managed by an AT Hungarian rider.
Panoramio - Africa Twin.
Why not join also so that we can see where those AT's have been wandering around the word?

I recently made another trip to Morocco this time with the purpose of riding the Merzouga-Mahmid piste and back.
Since I've always received kind and useful feedback from XRV.org I'll write a short resume that might be of interest to anyone.

The kind feedback that I've received from this forum during the preparation phase was very...

Thank you and Best Regards...

I really could do better with wider pegs. If find that the OEM ones do not offer good control and comfort specially when riding off-road in standing position.
Touratech is offering this Pivot Pegz but I find them expensive (155€!):
Any feedback on these or alternatives would be...
