You have clearly not ridden one. What use is power without control?

Clearly!

I've now done 6K on mine, 70/30 tar/dirt
Wear is great so far, the rear looks good for at least another 2-3k.

I ran them at 2F 2.2R off road last weekend, grip was great, very sure footed on rocky and loose gravel.

On tar, I find the front gets  quite loose at higher speeds, especially when decelerating, but overall they perform ok on the tar.

I buy from them all the time, absolutely no problems.

Great grip in the wet, watch the pressures, I find 2.3F and 2.8R works best, lower felt not so good (for me anyway)
I've done about 4k so far, quite a lot of it on tar, and at decent speeds, wear looks nominal.
Someone said they are loud, they are, very LOUD.

General Bike Related Banter / Re: Pirelli SA BotY - and the winner is
« on: August 03, 2016, 01:04:10 pm »
I'm glad this type of bike won, it really is a beautiful machine. I personally prefer the look of the base version without all the Ohlins jewelry, as I think it looks more retro.

Utilities Alternatives / Re: House Insulation Simulation
« on: July 27, 2016, 06:16:51 am »
Thanks for this, I have been looking into doing this myself.  My house cooks in summer and we freeze in winter, but before adding any heatin or cooling devices like air conditioning, it would be a good idea to attend to the insulation first.

Thanks for the reviews, very interesting reading. I hope to do a comparison on both bikes over the coming week, it will be fun to read your reviews again then. Thanks again.

I just bought mine at Gold Rand in Boksburg. Very good so far.
I also believe Pretoria is excellent.

The Gripabike one is poor quality. The wheels can't handle the bikes weight.
I have two that are about a year old, and they are not well made.

I just delved into the HD's for the first time. Here's a pic of my Breakout.

I'm in the process of 'customizing' it to my preferences. I must say its lots of fun, I'm actually surprised as to how much I'm enjoying it.

Planning a Ride / Re: GPS maps - Bronkies to Loskop dam *PLEASE*
« on: February 13, 2014, 07:34:39 am »
I have attached one I used a while back, it was a great route, and it extends to Dullstroom if you fancy a further adventure.

The route starts in the East Rand area on tar, but changes to dirt outside Bronkies.

Enjoy

I had a similar problem on my Ducati, turned out to be a bad spark plug.

Yes, not BM, I was pissed off the last time I got my tyres changed there.

Also can recommend Motorradtech
