1998 Africa Twin For Sale: Vancouver, Canada

My trip from Argentina to Vancouver ends at the end of May. I would like to sell my BEAUTIFUL 1998 Africa Twin when I get there.

She has been faultless for the 26000 mile trip. Never missed a beat, even at 15000 feet in Bolivia! The only problem I had was a stuck choke in Chile (took a while to figure out, and then 2 minutes to fix).


62,000 miles (when I get to Van. Just north of San Francisco now)
UK numberplate - has been permanently exported.
New front tyre oil and filter in SF.
New rear tyre, chain, plugs, coolant in Mexico City.
I have changed the oil every 3000 miles, filter every 6000. (Handbook says 8000 for both).
I bought the bike in the UK with 35000 miles on it - looked like new.
Original handbook and toolkit.

Extras (included):

Metal Mule racks (I want to keep the boxes!)
Crash bars
Powerbronze tall screen
Headlight protector (PVC)
Garmin 12XL mount and GPS
Acerbis lever guards (inc wind deflector extra bits)
Scottoiler (never been plumbed in so I can't promise it works!)


Some scratches on both sides of fairing (dropped on Ruta 40 gravel!)
Rack on one side slightly bent (but panniers fit fine)
Crash bar needs a weld on one side where it connects to frame
GPS missing two lines of pixels! Still use it every day.
Left footpeg slightly bent (I don't notice it - doesn't affect gear changing)

I am IN LOVE with this bike! If I don't get enough cash (US or Canadian dollars) for her I will probably ship her home.

More pix and full story of trip here
as long as you're not on the Africa part - that was a different bike!

Any deal will have to be done in Vancouver, in cash, between about 26th May and 1 June 2010. You'll be welcome to come and see - my email is

simey_boy (AT) yahoo (DOT) co (DOT) uk

Cheers all!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
