Title: Collected my new LC
Post by: blainec on January 17, 2014, 08:40:55 am
I collected my new 2014 Thunder Grey LC ,I  have no idea how they get to that name , I would call it anthracite . This is my 9th modern or oil cooled GS and I have to say that after only doing 60km's home last night this is a machine. The difference is night and day.

I leave at 5am tomorrow to go visit some farms up Fouriesburg / Ladybrand way .This will give me an opportunity to ride some highway , dirt Highway and a couple of farm paths leading to some nice private farm dams to do a little bass fishing .

By the time I get back I would have done roughly a thousand kilo's and will give my opinion then on the bike.

If you feel like a cold one, my sister and her husband farms out near Ladybrand, they always welcome visitors.

As owners we know very well what it looks like. We also know it makes you look cool and there are those that will pretend to own one to gain some street cred in the K50 section of the forum. :joker:

Photos means proof!

Indien julle kwaliteit produkte soek skakel gerus, die lokale produkte het ongelukkig nie ons kwaliteitsgradering gemaak nie. Ons het tans 'n verskeidenheid van Touratech, SW Motech, Globescout en Bags connection produkte beskikbaar.

Even though the circumstances leading up to Saturday's collection was less favourable, I am now also the proud owner of a 2014 1200 GS.

Unfortunately, due to an emergency appendicectomy, Thursday evening, I only managed 50km's before I gave up and parked it.

Cannot wait for the stitches to come out on Thursday!

Laat ons weet of jy ook dink daar is meer verander aan die 2014 model as net die steering damper?

Geniet die nuwe bike! En ek hoop jy herstel vinnig na jou operasie

On the 2014 model the following have been improved when I compare it to the 2013 demo I rode. Gear change quality, tendency to stall on pull off, engine vibration felt through the foot pegs- including passenger's and general NVH (noise,vibration and harshness) The 2013 version was a disappointment.
