Africa Twin With Panniers and Crash Bars

Part of the official launch photos, a good signthat Honda intends to offer accessories right out of the gate?

Honda's Used That Theme For A While

I remember seeing the Captain America colored Hondas with gold rims when I was a kid. HRC seem to love the gold rims. Me, I like black, thinking it makes for a tougher look, especially when combined with an aggressive tire. Silver and gold, not my thing.

I have a source who has given me couple of "rumours" and atleast 4 I know now to be true...
I think there will be no harm done if I tell you one of them:
my "source" said that AT will get a lot of accessories from the start and not from Honda. There will be Honda OEM panniers and crashbars (which this time will be real crashbars, not just lightbars like NC or VFR has), but there will be also 3rd party stuff available with AT logos. Source wasn't so sure, but told me that alu panniers will be one of the things, also helmets, boots, etc. Helmets will be Arai Tour X4 (http://www.araihelmet-europe.com/sit...ction/tour-x4/) with AT logo etc.
But I know one thing, its just a rumour until proven true.

CRF1000L, wow

Here's to hoping. The panniers up above look sorta, lunchboxish.

I'd rather be riding.

With design of cargo space on most touring and sport bikes being aerodynamic, the cargo options for ADV bike seem purposefully bulky. These look like they're designed by the good people at Coleman, Igloo or Thermos.

I like bulky design, but those boxes really look lunchbox-ish

The boxes above look like the ones you get on the 1200GS. Not sure what brand they are, but the side cases are expandable which is a nice feature. My friend has them on his GS and never takes them off. Useful for day trips and then they expand to carry his camping stuff on week long trips. If these function the same way I would be interested. If not I would probably go soft luggage
