Ok, with or without a 1/2" adaptor? I don't want to end up too high.

You will need an adaptor as stock mounts are part of the triple clamp and you cannot remove it. Not sure if you get different heights though.

Then I would go 1/2 inch. Stock for me (1.76m) the bars are slightly too low for standing but not so bad that I have to bend down too much. So raisers plus CR high would be just perfect.

I bought my Rally a.s.a.p. when I saw news of this grey colour scheme. I wanted to make sure I got a red one! I don't like the grey option at all.

Any idea of adapter prices nowadays ? Looking at the 1/2 inch option. R249 here bit more than likely will take 3 months to get here  ::)

I showed my dad some vids and Gumtree ads of the Rally, and he asked me what it can do that the L can't? Did not really have a good answer besides that it looks awesome and has better wind protection and slightly more feul. What an I missing?  :biggrin:

Rally has:
- More fuel (10 vs. 7 lit). I consistently get 30-33 km/lit, so 10 lit gets me far.
- Slightly longer suspension travel.
- Bright LED headlights. I've ridden it at night through the Karoo and it was brighter than the lights of an 800GSA with spots!
- Fairings/screen for more wind protection.
- Looks prettier  :biggrin:

To fit the rally? They don't fit. I went through the effort. Best bet is Zeta handguards. Fit with no bumping and steering goes stop to stop with room to spare.

everything Zanie says is correct - there ARE a number of real advantages that the Rally has...
But an American reviewer reviewed BOTH the Rally and the 'L' around the Rally's launch-time, and did question the Rally from a VALUE proposition; it was 13kg heavier, IIRC, and a LOT more money in their market (and ours...). and he wondered - aloud! - if the 'L' was not the smarter purchase....!
IIRC, the Rally shared the same rear spring (unsure), and he was troubled by the extra 13kg of Rally-weight on an already softish suspension?
Not dissing the Rally - just saying from a VALUE perspective, the reviewer would have bought the 'L', and done a few mods with the saving.
Cheers
Chris

Having spent lots of km's on open DP bikes, wind protection is quite a biggie for me, but that's not easy to understand for someone like my dad that last owned a bike 30 years ago.

It also just looks flippen awesome, the L looks like a plaas bike.

Luckily its not Superten or GSA money, those okes pend more than the difference between the Rally and L on a zorst or a pannier.
