Go back 16 years..... I was walking with my wife and saw my first XL1000V. I definitely remember saying how it looked like something I'd like to own.
Last Saturday, I bought one on a whim. :D
It's a1999 model with 64000km on the clock, genuine luggage, 2 screens, Ohlins shock, SWM...
A friend of mine wants to sell out most of his RD04 rallye parts (>30L rear tank, front tank, all of the bodywork, front suspension and wheel, tripmaster and roadbook holder, etc..) and turn the bike into a supermoto (dont ask why). Anyone interested from this forum in the whole kit or some...
Will fit an X Country too.
Purchased in error. I bought my XC from a mate. It had a low front rallye fender that I removed and then replaced it with these guards. They were attached to the bike, but the bike was never ridden, only stored in the garage. 2 months later (!!!!!!) my mate tells me...
Seeking a numberplate/taillight holder to fit my RD07. You know the black plastic thing that holds the tail light and sticks down out of the back of the bike. Am attemptng to sex up the look of my bike and want to give it a shorter rear mudguard/numberplate/taillight holder/rallye look. So...
My old Dashboard from my Africa Twin(RD07(1993)) got broke in a accident I had some month ago and can't sadly not be fixed any more.:(
So now I have been looking at different replacements for the old one.
I've been looking at this one from touratech, the IMO-100R Plus Rallye...
I live in France and I've 25. And I am customing an Africa Twin to do in August a trip to Istanbul in Turkey.
I've decided to give a rallye look to my bike and lengthen the suspensions (+7cm). And make a little lightweight. :rolleyes:
My Rd04 one month ago when i buyed it in south...
Found this bike for sale, not viewed it but being told it was used in the Dakar and comes with loads of spares (awaiting list) has the full Rallye Raid tanks front and rear and Ohlins shock, roadbook etc
I guess my question is what do you think its worth?
Your thoughts much appreciated as I...
Yesterday Jean-Claude Olivier (Sonauto Yamaha) was killed in a collission between a Truck and his Car in/near Paris.
A Man for whom motorcycles and Motorcycle Sport was his Passion and his Career.
A great loss for his Family, Yamaha and the Dakar Rally.
Au Revoir JC.

Is it just me?
Following on from my post about waterproof boots, I ordered a pair of Hein Gericke Rallye boots in their 30% discount sale.
I ordered on the 29th, paid using PayPal immediately, but have still not received them. I've used the HG contact form on their site and emailed them, but...
With winter banging on the doorstep, it's time for me to consider some new boots.
A recent email from the born again (in the UK) Hein Gericke is offering the HG Rallye 3 GTX boots with 30% off at £153, which I quite like the look of. Does anyone have these boots? Can you tell me if...
How do all !
Toying with the idea of giving Goliath a bit of a make over (partly to stop me buying a 2002 rsvr mille !) . Original 'paint scheme' was done quick and on the cheap.
I quite fancy doing a Lee Cooper Dakar replica. Ive found 2 pics on the web, but cant find any more. Ive managed...
