I Have A Dream

The Caponord is starting to look like a real Adventure bike now, however it has taken a while.

So far I have installed or modified the following:
  • GPS unit, (from Aldi, a really decent unit that is purpose built for bikes.)
  • Genuine Aprilia high seat, (cause I have long legs)
  • H&B Racks, both side and for topcase
  • Aprilia topcase. (Unfortunately arrived a bit damaged, but is fixed now. The nutter in Greece that sold it was a pain in the neck as well.)
  • Genuine Aprila heated grips. (You have to be comforatble right?)
  • Aprilia stone guard, from Alby in SA. (Good on ya Alby)
  • Ceramic brake pads. (A lot more progressive than the original)
  • Rally Raid, bars and bar mount. (This has transformed the overall feel of the steering)
  • Aprilia crash bars
  • Yamaha hand guards. (fitted, but now taken off, I need to modify the mounts a bit)
  • Dorsoduro indicators (The original will snap off if you look at them)
On the drawing board:
  • Carbon fibre sump guard. (I will have to build this myself)
  • Aprilia uprated fork springs. (Ordered, but not collected yet)
  • Possibly a camera mount.
