Re: Africa Twin thread

I am guessing the wing is so heavy it just squished all the slim out so it had good traction

Re: Africa Twin thread

I like your thinking, Mike.

Note to self: if there is a GW in the group and you are at a water crossing, follow the Wing!

Re: Africa Twin thread

I had it on 3 bars, but it just takes one little blip of the throttle and no recovery time. Good news: I was standing up, so I just stepped off the bike.
