My dream GS Adventure rig.

At long last she's finished... I actually finished her a month ago but took this long to complete the test riding I wanted to do before posting. She's as strong as an ox and rides like a dream!  :ricky:

Baie mooi. Hoop die bottel is ten minste vir mampoer.

Excellent!!

I assume the standard panniers still fit on the left of the bike?

One of these days I want to add one to the Lump - whats the chances you will consider naking one or at least selling the plans....? :drif: :eek7:

Hi there... Yes they do, it was designed this way, I had to sell my panniers to help pay for the cost of developing this rig. I will not be manufacturing these as such but I will put a few kits together for people who want one.

Cheers. K

Was a leading linkage ever considered?
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Of course the option is there to fit one.... if you have the money. For me at the moment I'm happy without it... I still like to ride solo at times so I choose not to make any changes to my bike. Takes 10 minutes to remove the rig.
