You know the Africa Twin bucked Richard Hammond, right?

But the real question is when are we having the christening party?  ;D congrats, Springer!

Ha! I bet we could start a pool of donations to cover your fuel and lodging...all in exchange for drooling rights and a test ride :D

Not real sure. Got some spring cleaning stuff....well a LOT of spring cleaning stuff to do, thanks to the storms passing through today. A neighbor has volunteered to bring a mini backhoe from his work place and dig up the flower/shrub/weed beds in the front and side of the house for beer. (Beats digging all that crap up by hand.) That should happen this weekend or the next. 
 So I will be most likely not on that.

No worries there and no donations required.   ;) It IS a tall bike though. The seat height is right at my belt line. It is taller than my XR650L.

love that color combination.

Good ride, a friend is Sicily has been putting a lot of miles on one and has been enjoying riding it off road a lot. He did a local hare scramble with it a few weeks ago..
