    I have always loved the Africa Twin form the 80's, won't mind this one for the weekends, but won't replace it for any sports bike.

    Might calm me down, if I could get on it :-/ Need something more relaxed if and when I return to the roads.

    It will have the thumper sound to it if you get a decent can on it and you may be surprised it could be rapid. I can relive my motocross days which weren't anything to write home about I was eating more dust than catching air off jumps.

    I'm sure it will be rapid enough :Smile: being a short arse myself all these types of bike are too big for me, so would need stabilisers for the traffic lights lol

    I though that was what MX was all about CJ, always looked too much like hard work to me and too painful for my liking :Tongue:

    Much prefer the old model from the late eighties/early nineties, they had a much more robust and purposeful look to them.
    Haven't owned one, but have owned it's smaller cousins.....an '89 Dominator and a '90 Transalp.
