Would like to see what everybody is running? Accessories and maybe some sticker kits. What mileage does your ride have?  :biggrin:

I could contribute a few if you like.

6100km, 2017 DCT

Wide footpegs, Rumbux crashbars, luggage plate, headlight protector, Mitas E07+ rear and Anakee Wild front tyre, bar raisers, 12v socket, battery tender lead, RAM GPS mount, GPS4Africa soft tailbag, SW Motech Micro tankbag, Wolfman soft panniers, SW Motech pannier racks.

Nicest bike I've owned in a long time.  Won't be selling for a while.

Oh wow nice. Thanks for your Feedback. Also new to the twin. Coming from a 1190 it has quite big shoes to fill. Have not had the opportunity yet to take it offroad. my ass is itching to get some saddle time in. Friend and I did a quick tar trip to kleinmond for lunch through rooiels. Can happily say its does not stand back in the corners. Also running the anakee wild in front and happy with the grip on the tar. will see once we get to the gravel what it does. Currently running a bridge ax41 on the rear. Bought the bike with just crashbars and pannier racks on.Currently on 21k km. I had a quick ride and found it to lack in certain departments.

Currently done to the bike:

Rockfox top and lower + bashplate
Suspension from MP custom valve with ohlins internals.
Rapid bike module. Much more lively now.
Fitted some proper handguards
SW motec panniers and frames
SW motec centre stand with shock linkage protection plate.
Wider pivot footpegs. Stock are just terrible
Riotgear headlight guard
Riot gear Pillion toolbox
Fitted a fuel exhaust. Now has the growl to match it looks
Luggage rack. Still have my Kriege soft luggage bags that fit frames and rack.
12v socket
Battery tender lead. Battery in such a crap place...
Bar riser. Actually found the you can ride the twin much slower than the 1190 with less effort.
GPS mount

Now just to get out and use it. Did just shy of 50k km on my 1190. Have to get some mileage on this baby.

I do like the white more than my red one. How are you finding the anakee wild on the front?

White one is faster.. red one crashes better  :biggrin:
I had the MT21 in the front. Worked really well on the AT
Then a STR which also did the job quite well. Front only though

O like these photos alot. Thanks for your contribution. That bashplate does look the business. It protects the whole underside of the bike! Im also still after that camel screen brace but no stock in SA. Seems like you have a couple of awesome tracks to ride!

Dankie! Ek woon in die platteland oos van Melbourne, tussen die groot berge noord, en see suid. Hier is ‘n magdom klein paadjies om te verken in die woude en berge in ‘n 50km+ radius van my huis. Ek ontdek nogsteeds nuwe plekke na 15 maande se naweke.  :ricky:

Ja die bash plate doen die job. Ek kan die screen brace ook aanbeveel, veral as jy gereeld grondpaaie ry.

Hallo Chris, die rims werk baie goed. Ek moes plugs insit met ons Karoo Gariep trip, en het heel eenvoudig gewerk. Groterige gat op die sidewall gekry, so sal die band moet vervang voor ons volgende trip. Was bietjie stupid en het daarom gesukkel. Eerste probeerslag net een figure 8 probeer, maar daar was steeds n lek. Tweede keer nie die plug afgesnny nie, dus het n klip altwee uitgepluk.

Ek het dit uiteindelik geplug met 2 X figure 8 plugs, mooi gelyk met die band afgesny, en daarna seker so 600 km grond en 750 km teer gery sonder enige probleme

@BikerJan, daardie snotterige grondpad  sou my senuweeagtig gehad het...

Die AT is ‘n handvol in die modder... Jy’t darem die regte bande opgehad, nie soos ek wat onlangs met E07’s in die klei rondgetjommel het nie. Ek het van hier af oppad huistoe amper “‘n plaas gekoop” op ‘n snot gladde harde off-camber klei plantasiepad.  :eek7: Geen foto...

Jy kan dit weer se Boerbok! Ek het my les geleer daardie naweek, ek sal nooit weer in sulke modder ry nie.

Africa Twin glad nie ontwerp daarvoor nie, my voorband het gesluit as gevolg van die opbou van modder en klei tusen die band en die modderskerm, en die enigste manier hoe ek daar kon uit was om die modderskerm af te haal.
