I have the tubular black engine bars fitted. They are from Hepco & Bekker (think that's how you spell it ?) and I ordered them from Motobins. They were brilliant and the engine bars arrived the next day. They were advertised in their sale on the web page and cost about £60. I got them fitted when my bike got it's last service, and they must go on easily as they did'nt charge much to fit them.

They don't stick out enough to protect any plastics but they would save the engine if the bike went over. All in all I think they look fine and being black they blend in to the bike without looking too 'Paris/Dakar', if you know what I mean ?

Hepco & Bekker also do centre stands for the Strada which I'm considering as Aprilia have never come up with an official one yet, despite having the mounting lugs on the bike.

Aprilia centre stands are available, I think I've got one in stock. I'm planning to visit off-the-road on our way back up through Germany in a couple of weeks to get some GSG's and a water pump cover.

Elvis, that looks cool as ....! Next time- we love Germany.

But the plans we've made are...Rotterdam-Trier-Schenkenzell (Black Forest), Waldau (near Freibourg) for two nights, we want to go to Tubingen and a castle near there. Then Munich for two nights, on up to Bamberg, finally Koln for two nights before heading back to Rotterdam for the ferry.

Back in work tomorrow. I'll let you know the price and part number for the stand then.

We're curious as to why the area is "Switzerland" Saxony - excuse our ignorance! Can you explain? I see it is very far from Switzerland, nearer Dresden.

MMM... never thought about that, since i am not a local (only 6 years) i will need to ask.
but any way this place is between Dresden and the boarder of czech republic
and the MZ factory is there also

Can anyone tell me if that part fits an '06 Pegaso Trail?? or is it just strada specific?

I checked my bike and it has fixing points for a centre stand but my local dealer does not know which part to order for the trail centre stand, my concern is that it wont be tall enough or am I wrong??

Actually my bike is a Strada, and the centre stand fits and works fine. If you measure the amount of ground clearance you bike has, I will compare it to my bike, and may be block the wheels to gain the right ground clearance and see if the stand will still work.

A bit late, this post - but just to enlighten You folks :happy:
The term of saxon switzerland or swiss saxony derives from to swiss artists (Adrian Zingg and Anton Graff) in the 18th century who felt reminded of the swiss "Jura", when the travelled of what used to be known as the Meissen Highlands.
A german author, Wilhelm Lebrecht Götzinger made the name saxon switzerland a familiar term in his descriptions of the area

So, there You go - class dismissed:tired:

Hi

Centre stand was obtained from Panda. Good service and some neat Aprilia.com stickers included. Handgaurds are BMW GS ones.
Both items work well.

Frankfurt - I really didn't notice where I'd parked until we were off the bike...
http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q38/PandaG/frankfurt.jpg

I went to visit off-the-road.de, but they didn't have any GSG's in stock. I did buy a black water pump guard though, it's neat but could maybe sit out a bit further to give more protection. I'll post some pictures once it stops raining and I can give the bike a wash.

What really stood out was how much they knew about the Minarelli 659 motor - he had an XT660 which was 725cc sitting in the workshop and the place was rammed with trick stuff, mostly made by themselves.

If anyone is going to be in Cologne with their bike for a few days, they want to make a kit for mounting aluminium panniers on the Pegaso and they need a bike for 3 or so days to make it. They're also going to make heavy duty racks.

The bloke was so friendly and patient with me not speaking German I really wanted to buy more stuff from him!

Right then, have finally measured the ground clearance, thought I'd photo it to clearly show where I measure to (see below!) was 247mm to the underside of the fixing point, however its important to note that my bike is resting on the side stand so its at an angle, so it would be good if you measure in the same manner. I guess it would be about 255-260 when upright!?
