Thank you for your time putting this together

LS:Thks for sharing all the pics,appreciate it

No problem.
Sorry if I'm ruining any surprises, but I'm sure everyone will still go to the shops once the ship is unloaded.
It really is a nice bike

I still get excited before every single launch I attend! I hope it never turns into 'just work'.
And when I come back I wish I could tell everyone around me about the car/bike I just drove/rode, but I know most people don't like it when I do that so I keep my ramblings for the magazine.

I'm always extra excited to attend a bike launch, but two days before the Africa Twin launch I actually dreamed about this bike - which is something that has never happened before any other launch.

I have noticed some journalists got carried away and heaped nothing but praise on the bike - and to be fair it is a great bike. But I'd rather not do that and prefer to look for stuff I don't like. My service its to the reader, not the manufacturer.

Love your answer.
Like it when journo's are honest. Not scared to not get a ride again and then say "it's a good bike go ride one and then decide for yourself" especially when two bikes are compared.

What tyres were used in your first pics - TKC80s?
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

So, has the SA launch happened yet (Dec 2015). And when will they be available on the showroom floor. And Price?

There will be no SA launch
A few press fleet bikes should arrive in March 2016
Shops will receive stock around April
Unknown but hopefully between 155K for the base model and 182K for full spec if the Rand can hold out
