Note: The bike is a 2016 Honda Africa Twin, currently with 25k miles. I’ve recently moved into the retirement phase after 30+ years in the fire service. So, the plan is solo miles on the bike, and finish the truck as our “overland” adventure rig. I have air bags in the back to help with the weight, but they are not charged in the current picture. Truck would handle just fine with the 600lb bike back there. Several trips to/from Seattle & Bend, OR. There is a canopy mounted now, so the bike gets used as designed
I’m the original owner, currently at 110k miles. Over the years, I’ve lurked on this and various other forums and have done several of the common mods. When it was new I had a Kenwood DNX9980HD, along with a rear seat DVD display, backup camera, and alarm system installed.
I’ve been faithful and overly diligent with maintenance. Oil changes every 5k; @ 25/50/75k did “major” routine maintenance as well. At 100k I debated about selling and moving to the ZR2 Bison, but decided I really like the Frontier. So, went through bumper-to-bumper including timing chain/guides; all fluids/hoses; water pump; belts; plugs/coil packs; etc…
I’ll continue posting additional threads with the recently completed work, as well as the upcoming plan.
Thanks to all who have forged through the hard work of research, trial/error, answered questions on the forum boards and provided detailed guides.
Looking forward to sharing...
