Road to Adventure (R2A2)

After getting my first ever taste of off road in 2020, I plan to do more in 2021. In addition to more upgrades to my CRF250L, I am prepping a prestine 2017 Africa Twin. And I'll see how much the COVID situation lightens up, then determine how much track action I will get in 2021.

Ready or not... I found a great buy on this AT with less than 500 miles, so had to get it. I spent the winter and spring looking for and adding accessories.

When talking about adventure riding, it will be from a perspective of a new rider that is over 55 years old and "robust"... and will include lots of photos and videos as normal.

I created these prototypes in Photoshop of the Africa Twin mods I wanted to make to give me an idea of what it might look like when done... it will be interesting to see it at the end of the year to see how close it got.
