Hope everyone is doing well on this forum. Herewith I'm thinking about selling my RD04 due to the fact I have no more time to ride it ... lots of times abroad for my job so I need to make choices.
Alright so here it goes:
°Totally prepped for the big adventure
I'm located in the USA, and used a purchasing service in Ireland to acquire a 1999 XRV750 Africa Twin. I am beyond excited to get over there to ride my new bike!
I'm flying to Dublin next month to pick up the bike, and will be ferrying it to France for a 2 week ride around the Alps. I've...
Why do tank bags have poxy, small map pockets or more infuriatingly a decent size pocket that has a small opening....?
Anyway, my new to me Givi tanklock bag is the latter, I'm just able to get a small tuff map in there (can you still get them?)
Talk about wood for the trees.
A walkers map...

Thought I would write up my little 8 day jaunt around Europe. (apologies for the upside down pictures, I have no idea how to correct them!)
The start of the plan was to incorporate a few battlefields with a visit to the Izi meeting (Izi meeting) which I have been meaning to go to for a few...
I'm going on a roadtrip this sunday. From Belgium to South France.
I would like to have a tank bag (prefer magnet one) but I don't know which one fits the best, or which one I should choose.
Thanks in forward.

I'm moving on to a full licence and need to sell my DTA to buy the new bike.

Just a question on the starter button..just put my tank bag on..and started the bike..when moving the bike outside the garage i touched the starter button with tank bag , starter motor ran..is this right..or is there a switch faulty...
Does anyone here have any recommendations for a decent map holder to fit the TA700 tank?
I used a magnetic tank bag on my old bike but the plastic tank covers has ruined that. Tried a tank ring tank bag but the fuel cap is too far forward on the TA for this to work with anything of a decent...
I'm considering ways to store a bit more weight further forward on the bike (RD07).
Let me know if you have any of the following for sale:
- Front rack (above/below headlight)
- Modified sump guard with storage for tools etc
- hard or soft tank panniers
- soft tank bag (~15l minimum)
I've not picked up the Transalp yet so can't do the obvious test but what is the petrol tank made of? Steel, Aluminium? I have an Oxford tank bag which is held on with magnets so wondering if it will still be of any use :)
This is probably idiotic....but the alp seems much more responsive...more agile without a topbox on the back......is this me imagining things or is there a real reason for this...I would imagine the few kg of an empty topbox should not be felt especially since I have toured with full luggage...

I'm a "simpler is better" kind of guy and well.. there are a...
I have a bagster tank protector on the RD07a and am looking to purchase a small tank bag. I have read in the past that the "city trail" was a good size/ fit but this has been discontinued.
Anyone know which of the current range is a good fit for the AT. Cheers for any advice.

Hello. I purchased a Bagster tank cover for my 1990 RD04 XRV750 today. I am not familiar with Bagster and am writing to receive a recommendation for a Bagster tank bag that would fit nicely on the AT's Bagster tank cover. My AT has small bar risers. I usually use a tankbag for maps and...
