You don't say! I'm in Cape Town itself - northern 'burbs. Darling is VERY close but far enough for a breakfast run Was born in Malmesbury, a little further on.

Pant....pant....pant......pfewww.

Just finished catching up on posts. You lot are simply BRILLIANT!

An amazing wide range of subjects....I love it.

First a bit about what's been happening with me. A good friend and brother firefighter has been fighting cancer for the last year. He got so weak he couldn't ride any more and asked me to sell his BMW. I completed the sale today, called to tell him the bike was sold and discovered that he died this morning.

.....so I've been a bit slow to post photos.....

My plan was to take a ride today but selling the bike got in the way. The new owner is to pick it up tomorrow, so no ride tomorrow either.

I know....I'll post older photos of some rides around the area, the seasons and bikes will be different but that should be OK.

On Suspension stuff:

I certainly don't mean to scare anyone away from modding a bike. I just thought that some potential problems should be pointed out so you guys can make sure something doesn't bite you in the backside when you weren't expecting it. Just make sure nothing can stop that front wheel from spinning (except the front brake, of course).

On Soviet Mechanics:

Don't berate yourselves guys. Riders in the US today have absolutely no idea (except for a small minority) what makes their machines go, stop or fall over. If they get a puncture, they park and call for help on their mobile phones.....they'll take the machine to the shop to have the spark plugs changed......wankers all of 'em.

You guys that have been forced to make things work are worlds better off. You understand stuff, appreciate good engineering, can make a field repair and consider it part of your ride and enjoy the experience.

Robmoto:

Looks like you've got that computer under control. But that bottom triple clamp looks like it weighs about as much as your entire frame.....Beautiful wheels - I hope your chainline works out.

My DR750:

Is in pieces tonight. I took apart the rear suspension to clean and regrease and found a bad needle bearing in the left side swingarm. Now I have to see if the US model DR650 uses the same size or if I can get a bearing from a bearing supply company.....and I think Robmoto has shamed me into repainting my swingarm before putting it back together again.

OK.......Photos in the next post....you guys sure know how to put the pressure on.
