  1. Africa Twin
    Finally a really modern rally rep for sale! Honda CRF250 Rally prototype | MCN What do you guys think? This is really interesting to me, I've always wondered why KTM never did it before after abandoning the KTM 640 and going to 950 that they didn't just stick a rally fairing on the 690 enduro...

  3. Varadero
    Hello, I want to build a rally bike. It shud look something like crf 450 rally or africa twin with hrc colors. I would like a 2 stroke bike, but I'm not allowed to drive more than 11 kW until I'm 18. At first i'm trying to find a good varadero and change the subframe and seat from a motocross...

  6. Competitions / Trials
    Just wondering if anybody else was planning on doing any rally raid type events this year? I'm currently signed up on the AT for the Tour of Portugal in March, planning on doing as much of the ATRC and rally moto cup as possible in the UK, and funds dependent, fancy Rally Albania and possibly...
  7. Aprilia
    Anyone here owning a Caponord 1200 Rally? Comparing the prices for a brand new 2016 with the new Africa Twin, the Aprilia comes out as a better deal when looking at what's included. Okey, so no Automatic gearbox, but I did not whant that anyway.

    I have about eight VHS tapes of the Paris-Dakar rally that my dad gave me. They are all recorded from the TV. Mostly from the 1990s. After I have watched them, does anyone want them?

    I'll be going to this meeting up in North Yorkshire, New Inn, Cropton, this weekend. It's been organised by the Adventure Bike Riders forum. Anyone else thinking of going? The campsite is next to the New Inn which has it's own micro brewery. Should be an interesting couple of days :compress: I...
  13. Africa Twin
    Hi, I am replacing my stock front fairing with a rally style fairing. Problem is that I will need 2 dual 100mm headlights that have both high and low beams. Here in South Africa I am battling to source them. I can get but then they don't have a low beam. Does anyone know where I can source it...
  14. Mechanical Advice
    Hi all I'm looking for some help on this. I've bought some acerbis handguards which look like the rally pros and trying to fit them onto my Ta. I've got heated grips already fitted since buying bike. The heated grips have no distinguishable markings at all. I will take pictures and post up when...
  15. Bodgers Corner
    Now I've fitted my Dakar graphics kit I wanted to make a CRf450 Rally type screen and lights. So bought a sheet of 4mm Lexan and lights. Together with a cheap pair of handle bars and extra bar stays I now have finished my conversion. May not be to everyone's taste but I wanted to recreate the...

    Abergavenny Steam Rally, last weekend.
  17. Africa Twin
    Fairing clearance with Acerbis Rally Pro? So, I bought some acerbis rally pro hand guards. It seems a lot of people here have them - that's why I chose them over the Multiplo E (the T's are just about impossible to find now). Now they are fitted, I can't find a bar/guard angle that doesn't...

  20. Africa Twin
    The @ is ready for paint ( new rally fairing & rear guard plus everything else either upgraded or changed) but I'm undecided on the decals, apply after paint or have them lacquered? The bike gets used off road so it's not going to stay in showroom condition. Next question where to have custom...
