    It's here! only had to wait 2 months for the order. Put 1200km's down in the first week and I can say that it is a pleasure to ride, plenty of power and handles well on tarmac or dirt road. I have made a wise choice. Let my friend with a V Strom have a ride and he was also extremely inpressed...
  19. BSM exhausts - thumbs up

    Africa Twin
