2017 Africa Twin (DCT)

Updated: Apr 16, 2019

Second time lucky? I hope so.

Was a bit of a push getting this bike ready, only finishing the last bits at midnight, 6 hrs before leaving on a 30,000km trip around Australia.

It took around 4 - 5 days to get it ready, including making a few pieces along the way and swapping the existing parts from the previous Africa Twin that failed due to mechanical faults. I didn't really count on doing it all twice, but as we know with bikes, shit just happens sometimes.

Here's how the bike sat in March 2018, it's now got 38,700kms and a few small changes made during the trip. I'll update them later.
