Cool 2019 Blue AT - First 600mi.

I picked up my first Africa Twin a few weeks ago! After much internal struggle I decided to go with the blue multi-color. Too many black bikes on the road in my opinion.

Here are some pics on my first few trips. So far it's been an awesome bike!

As you can tell in the photos, the bike has no add-on parts other than the Honda top box. Any recommendations for aftermarket parts are welcome.

I pick it up from the dealer tomorrow after it's first 600-mile service. I'm excited to get back out on the road.

The Volkswagen bus in one of the pics is my dad's, 1968, first year of the bay window style.

If there are any So-Cal Twin owners reading this, hit me up!

I have also bought that color, I like it a lot.

Regarding extras, I went with the quickshift, and recently bought the SW motech crash bars.

Also upgraded the Honda top box for a Givi Trekker 52L.

Any quick feedback opinion regarding the SW Motech crash bars?

Crash bars are the first things on my to-get list. I am torn between the SW Motech and Alt Rider bars. Both look good.

Any cons to the SW setup you have? Thanks!
