Re: Africa Twin for road riding only - opinions?

Thanks guys 8-) . I've settled on getting a Kawasaki z1000sx. As I said, I've had loads of sports bikes and whilst my current CBF1000 has loads of grunt, I'm missing the top end rush (the CBF has got a de-tuned '04 Fireblade engine). I've covered about 12,000 miles on it in about 18 months, so it's ...

Adventure bikes on the road make a load of sence. Comfortable, nice and tall to see over cars, able to bounce over curbs and can handle the broken roads better than street bikes.
Yep. That's been my thinking too. I just want one with a bit of 'fizz' to satisfy my red mist moments... :oops:

Re: Africa Twin for road riding only - opinions?

To be clear...and that’s why I asked the question...I am just interested in what the AT is like on the road because I like the styling...that’s it, nothing else. I’ve already got a good road bike but fancy a change and I don’t want to go back to sports bikes like FireBlades and Gixxers because I’ve ...

If you're going that route, what about the 1200 Crosstourer?
Yes, I like them but the weight is putting me off. Maybe I'll try one out...

Africa Twin for road riding only - opinions?

What's everyone's thoughts on using the Africa Twin for road riding only? What I mean, is the engine 'satisfying' enough for, say, a spirited rider?
I love the styling but have no intention of taking it off road...and a few of them are now coming down in price and are nearly into my budget. Thanks.

Re: Ferries are filling up fast !!!

I read that as the op wanted to take the van on the ferry. Yes, of course...I missed that :oops: . I don't know the answer as we've never taken a van on the Ferry but I'm guessing that it will be a similar cost to 3 x bikes/riders on the ferry?? Brittany Ferries seem to be quite good at getting max...

Re: Ferries are filling up fast !!!

How would the economics of say 3 bikes and 3 riders on the ferry compare with a van (containing 3 bikes and 3 people)? Approximately...in summer... 3 bikes on ferry to Santander = £800 total...or £266 each...for the ferry ticket and allowing for buying food on board. 1 van and 3 passengers via the ...

Thanks 8-) . I also like Oxford stuff. I've got their Aqua 50 and Aqua 20 roll top bags and they are both a good bit of kit 8-) .
