    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.

    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.

    Sounds like a plan. Lets put a route together with some wine tasting and sight seeing for the valies. Then promote it. Maybe we get some interest.

    So who says we would want to visit you mountain goats anyway, I prefer going North its warmer, drier and the sand is scarier.

    Anyway back to the post lets try to show you (in true monty python) the "half a bee"
    It is 99 these colurs did not exist then?
    I got it as is.

    Oh yes one of my daughters, who all love the black beauty.
