Here's just some pics of my travels, Basically my first 12 months with my Honda. Haven't ridden since early November due to bush fires & extreme heat.
I've ridden the big girl across Australia from West to East & all through NSW. I've also got 2 sets of wheels. Set up for dirt and road riding.

I don't get on with sand very well, Especially fully loaded for a month unsupported.
My mate had a can laying around in his shed that I put on to get rid of the stock can. Ended up blowing it apart :cautious:

That AT is definitely napping.
Yep agreed, probably a bit tired after all those miles.

Raise your hand if your AT hasn’t taken a nap yet.....


Hmmmm, nope don’t see anyone putting their hand up...
Oh yea, I forgot, the “nap” feature is standard on the ATAS.
Not sure if mine came with the clothes line feature tho. But that would be handy, maybe just the Aussie bikes come with it..

As I ride mostly offroad in the Australian dust I like to be able to access my air filters quickly and easily.
I have Uni filters and there pre filters. Since fitting the pre filters I've never had cause to clean my actual air filter. Still do though because. . Well just because.
So here's my idea. Looking down the steering colom I drilled a 54mm hole taking me straight through to where the pre filters sit.
Auto part Engine Automotive fuel system Automotive engine part Vehicle

I put a 54mm auto grommet in there.

So when all the her clothes are on with crash bars, headlight protector and all the expensive stuff. I can reach down into the fork tube pull the grommets out
Auto part Automotive exterior Bumper Hood Vehicle

Take my pre filters out and put fresh ones in. Takes less than 5 minutes.
It's saves time on big trips and makes air filter inspection easy.
Hope you guys like it to.
Cheers

I've got 2 sets of rims. One gold and one black. I generally use the black rims for my road tires and my gold ones for off road tires. But I did use the black wheels for a cross Australia trip in Sep 2019.
