I have the rack, and the air ram, and a camel toe & Paul sent me a free fuel container. I'm satisfied with the gear. Paul is a top bloke. Any probs with sharp edges on your rack bang him email and it will be sorted swiftly I guarantee. I see good things for Adventure parts, it's a growing company - that means there's accountability and a willingness to get things right. Paul rides the KTM, Paul developed the kit and used it on his bikes, his mates bikes, in the dirt - heat - sand. The kit works, it's light and durable. That's what you need from your kit.

Absolutely, I left an email for Paul with my views on the quality of the parts (my other half had a further surprise of an Air-Ram and Sasquatch) because i have got very fed up of the 'made in England erm actually China fall apart halfway through the trip' crap i have been unlucky enough to use and send back in the last few years. This kit is spot on and to top it all off Paul phoned last night (saturday) and thanked me for the email i sent, customer service goes a long way and i am happy with the way it should be pride in what he has developed, produced and put out there against fierce competition.

Buy British......................

Ps: They are powder coating the rack now so ask when you order, orange or black........sweet !

My mate had sharp edges on his rack. Just needed a quick run over with a file to take off the edges.

how did you get on with the air ram? does it help the buffeting?

Yup. It does just that. Like it says on the tin. I was gonna try cutting down my screen, but didn't want to reduce weather shielding - so it's worked a treat.

I got one and just used it on a trip away to the Ardennes. It was easy to put on. I strapped a 55lt ortlieb type bag to it with those green zuru elastic straps you can buy from costco or busters. worked a treat. Mine was a bit rough around the edges but a fine file, some fine wet and dry finishing off with wire wool and a bit of elbow grease cured it. Got mine for £28 off ebay as he was just beginning to sell them. He also sent me a camel toe which i've still not put on yet as a good will gesture. I sent him a pic of mine with a bottle of wine and 2 plastic glasses mounted on the back of the bike- he still uses this pic in his ebay listings.

The only thing i would recommend is putting some of the rubber coated anti scratch between the top of the rack and under a bag, it stops the edges marking the underside of a bag and leaving an alloy residue on bag. Something my mrs found out when i put my dirty bag on the bed when i got back and got the clean bed linen dirty- DOH !!
