Kitting out an Aprilia Pegaso Strada ('06) for Sydney - London....
I've posted on the which bike section that I'll be travelling from Sydney - London in Jan '09 and was trying to decide between keeping my Pegaso or getting a BMW 650 Dakar. Looks like the consensus is that the Pegaso will do the job, so I'm going to stick with it....which I'm happy about!
The question is, what would you do to kit it out? I'm going to worry about tyres closer to the time, but clearly need some that are a little less road focussed.
Other than that, I'm guessing stiffer shocks and a bash plate are going to be essential. Anything else I really need? I want to have the essentials but don't want to spend any more than I have to...
Also, anyone have any idea who would make aluminium panniers for the Pegaso?
