Hi Jim
Welcome to the Elefant world. There is a huge worldwide following of Fants with a yearly meets in Europe (10th this year in Italy) and owners club and worldwide forums.
Ive been riding/touring on Fants for 6 years now and find them unrivaled by any other bike in all round use and affordabillty!
Start at cagivaelefant.com for links to loads of other worldwide sites where you can contact loads of other owners full of tips & info
cheers Marc

Hi Jim, if you are still here. the Elefant is a beast of a bike, I even have a few myself! They are actually a lot better to work on than most hubbers will give them credit for, they just have the punishing Ducati service interval. On the plus side they also have superb ducati engine characteristics and 'amusing' ducati gearboxes...

Hope the bike is working out well for you!

No I didn't! Doubt I'll have finished the 650 by then but I might have the 750 up and running. You going? I guess the details are in one of the EAB e-mails that I generally dont read anymore
