2017 Africa Twin (DCT)

June 28, 2018


Second time lucky? I hope so. 


All going well, by the end of the year I expect around 40,000kms in the seat, so I thought I'd share some of what's been added to the bike to make it just right (for me) and the intended trips I'll be making on it.

It took around 4 - 5 days to get it ready, including making a few pieces along the way and swapping parts from the first Evil twin that's still parked up awaiting diagnosis and warranty repairs.
