Thanks,  looks like you are about to take  some more of my money!!  Anything in metal that can be permanently mounted so as not to get stollen?

We sell a fair number of 'RAID' (toolboxes for OTHER models, but have not YET imported the one shown below - just not had a request for it!
We have an order in for 6 x 1200 LC boxes, and their is a chance, if they have not yet left, to include one of these, otherwise we can bring it in with NEXT shipment..
>Around R2100 incl, complete.
Cheers, Chris & team

Hi All

Does anyone know the rims on AT is it soft like Ktm 1190R did anyone get a smiley before?

Then the std bash plate is it any good?


Thanks

The Std. DID rims are great, mine have taken a few hard hits already and no sign of damage!
As for the bash plate, if you plan on doing more technical riding I would suggest you fit something stronger. I fitted the Rumbux crash bars which have an integrated
bash plate and it has saved the oil filter/sump a few times already. You need to keep in mind that its a heavy bike and the weight transfer when hitting a rock/stump is immense!  :ricky:

Giant Loop are nice and are way cheaper, but the mounting system of the Mosko Moto bags is way easier and secure. They can be fitted and removed in seconds, even easier than hard panniers.
Below pics shows you the unique mounting "wedge" plate that makes this system work so well!

A group of German guys went RTW (or are still on the last leg) - 2 AT's broke that mid screen cross beam due to GPS's (NUVI 550's I think) being mounted on it.

The SW is a far better design as it's mounted on the handlebar and I have not read of problems with that.
