Title: Test ride
Post by: LanceSA on April 10, 2012, 09:26:22 pm
I was in Jhb for the weekend & popped past RAD. Awesome shop. They have a 2011 690 for sale with full Omega rally kit and other extras for sale at R 105k. Only done 1600 km. tires still new. Took it for a ride and not sure what to think. Engine is fantastic with fmf pipe but was spluttering on top and forks very divey.
Also looked at brand new 2012 model. Strangely they wouldn't let me test ride it.
More confused than ever.

My useless dealer has finally got off his but and found me a 2012. Now suddenly I'm in a rush to sort out finance.  :'(

I also had a t the 690 with Omega fairing at RAD, my problem is it was not the R model. So I bought a demo R for R85 with pipe on and fitted the fairing myself for R21k. Much better deal. Upped the suspension by 3 clicks in front and sorted out the diving problem. Did some tech riding last weekend and she handles beautifully   :ricky:
