Dankie @Jacobsroodt , ek het die hoŽr skerm vir hom maar hy belemmer my sig van die grondpad.  Op teer is hy baie lekker.  :thumleft:
Ja nee. Grondpad = lae skerm.Geniet daai fiets!

@Ian in Great Brak River do you have a list and pix posted here somewhere of your mods?  I can't decide what pannier racks to buy.  I want something that blends with the aesthetics of the bike a bit. Many of the racks look a bit like those Aussie feral bull catching bullbars on FJ45 Cruisers.

OK, I am exaggerting (a bit)  :peepwall: :pot: :lol8:

No, you are 100% correct. Most racks look like modified Bullbars. I donít have a list of items I added, just added as needed I suppose. Not easy for me to say this, but I would probably go for soft luggage next time, like Mosko or something similar. The Hepco & Beckers on my AT are certainly well built but stick out over 1m side to side. Donít look too bad once I have removed the cases but also cost about R28k I think it was so too expensive. On the other hand you will do many more long trips In the future on your bike because it is so easy to tour on, perhaps a good set of Bullbars is what you need? I chose the H&B over Touratech and SW Motech because the panniers looked better but it is still just plastic boxes in the end.

Lekker ry!    8)

What I do recommend you get are the H&B hand guards, the white plastic Honda OEM parts will pop off in fright if you look at them long enough. Then again, the Honda OEM center stand is very well made so that would usefull too.

Thanks Ian, I use my Wolfman Expedition dry bags, prefer the soft panniers to hard.  Fortunately I bought the bike with an OEM centre stand.  I think once I have the pannier racks and a bigger side stand foot, I'm good to go.  :thumleft:

Omdat ek nie die pannier rakke in lewende lywe sien nie, moes ek maar noodgedwonge op die internet vertrou om te besluit op watter rakke ek sou installeer.  Het uiteindelik op die SW Motech Pro model besluit.  Ek het hulle vanmiddag geinstalleer ndat @ChrisL - DUSTRIDERS en Amanda weer met hulle blitsvinnige diens beÔndruk het.  Dankie julle, daar is waaragtig mins besighede wat so vinnig reageer.   :thumleft:

Ek het die rakke maklik geÔnstalleer, hulle is baie stewig en lyk ook mooi.  Hulle sit nie heeltemal so skeef as gevolg van die uitlaatpyp nie soos van die ander modelle. 

Ek soek diť naweek solank 'n langpad om te gaan ry.
