candyman has a red one with R1200GS-WP notice the R

Gruebane must lift those lenses so he can see better. hehehe
ah, and with the smell of forthcoming espionage and corrupt number plate dealing, we have a reasonable answer.

wonder if we should consider the Hitchcock/Grisham Adventure Rider Chronicles..

Well, it could be anything from R1500 upwards.

Here is a site you may want to check out. Cheaper if you do it yourself though. Easier if they do it.

She has arrived - Best birthday present I ever gave myself!!!!



The delay in posting the pics is HER fault. Great weekend with lots of riding. Trying to get through the first 1000k's so I can test her out even more!!!

Welcome again Funacid

I remember Klaus getting a brand new one too, he rode with us on a 4 day trip to the Hell and back, and coming out of Oudtshoorn, as his bike went over 1000, I remember for the first time just gassed it to max and the grin when he got that helmet off was insatiable

I have ridden his and other 1200's I am sure its going to give you loads of smiles per miles.

Ride safely.

Well it might be because they have so much fun and have no time to read this forum.
