Honda teamed up with SouthPaw to create and interactive journey you can take on the Africa Twin! You get to click on options to decide which path to take and it looks amazing!

Best used on desktop as it's easier to click on.


I just kept clicking left. :grin2:
Give it a try!

Okay, videos like this should not be allowed here. I'm at work and I too kept left clicking, wanting to 'Continue the Adventure.' I know that I won't get much work done, as I will then start right clicking to see the difference. Ugh!!! "Teaser" is right, like a super-hot blonde in a bikini riding a motorcycle.

I cannot freaking wait ! ! !
Silver, to match my silver Subaru that will trailer it to the forests,
as my arse won't do those long rides the way I'd like.

May even order accessories before it's available.

Peace from Florida.

Got to love seeing the soundness of a product and and ad expressed through words like that ;) I'm sure Honda is smiling looking at your comment

It's ads like this that will get folks into dealers and even waiting for them to show up at motorcycle shows.

Well, what a way to drum up excitement. Bike looks agile enough to whip around. Now I just have to see the magazine reviews. Gotta admit, I am pretty much hooked.

Lol, Honda just reduced office productivity for a day. I made sure to click everything before going back to work too.

Those scenic routes are where I want to bring the Africa Twin to!
Abandoned town, mountains roads, everywhere!

I know what you mean!

Once the bike launches i'm sure we'll get to see some unique places as it seems a lot of us are into venturing out rather than sticking local.

Can't wait.

A little bit of me dies every time I'm forced to go through traffic in the city. Such a pain compared to the open roads.

I hate it even more with the heat that builds up with just idling.

Lane splitting helps and if you're stuck in traffic and if you're in a rush although it might be illegal in some places. As long as its done safely I don't see the problem.

It's illegal where I live so I've never lane split before.
Idling is not a problem as long as I don't ride into the city and why would you when there's so much more to see away from it.

Same here but I do it during times when it's clear it's safe and a cop it's around, even if i have to stick to the right or left shoulders I do that too. Drivers get pissed but they have no legit reason to be pissed

Which part of the world do you live in?

Is it considered legal to lane split/filter where you live?... if it's not legal, then yes other drivers would be right to be pissed, just as they would be right to be pissed if you ran a stop sign or a red traffic light.

Here in the U.S., lane splitting & filtering is illegal in 49 states (it is legal in California).

I agree... and this Africa Twin is obviously made to be ridden on 'roads less traveled', especially those unpaved roads which eventually dead end out in the middle of someplace where there is nothing but a picture postcard view...




I'd also be willing to bet that many of the Africa Twins sold here in the U.S. will rarely, if ever see a gravel road, let alone travel an old rutted and washed out logging road leading to a long forgotten ghost town high above timberline somewhere in the Rockies. No, I suspect many will end up as weekday urban/suburban commuter bikes, with regular Saturday morning washings in the driveway so as to spend the rest of the weekend as not much more than a cool looking driveway ornament.

I don't live close to scenic trails like the one in your picture on a high point so it's foresty trails for me...Maybe I need to have a midlife crisis and move.

Seeking out those old forest trails & logging roads is what it's all about.

I grew up in the midwest and learned to ride from age 10 on small dirt bikes in farm fields, and wooded pastures where we made our own trails. A lot of that is gone now, many of those places where we rode as kids have long been developed into suburban neighborhoods, and shopping centers.

I'm fortunate... here where I live now, in the southern end of the Rocky Mountains, I've got some of the best off road riding on the planet right outside by back door.

Can't wait until you get an AT and record your adventures on it.
I'll need to travel for a long distance on road before hitting any good dirt. No mountains near me. >.<
