What is the "Around Marakele" trip entail?

Sounds like it could be interesting - do you have a route....?

I have mates that have a B&B on a game farm type arrangement outside of Thabazimbi on the Marakele road - dunno if that would suit?

Original ones I had made were also made of phosphor bronze.  Holds up way better than the originals.

I still have these 2 remaining from the sets I had made up way back when.  I have subsequently bought my own lathe so can make up a few sets.

Are they for the rear? Price?

I'm looking at buying wheel spacers from Scheffelmeier-Metall in Germany.

33.52 euro for set of 3 spacers. (excluding postage, Vat and import duties)

Slaaiblaar, if you can get me exact measurements, or even better, send me a set of originals, I can turn some out of phosphor bronze for you.

Cost will depend on material pricing.

Phosphor bronze? How will this hold up with oil seals?

Just be carefull, I also accidentally ordered for the one with ABS, the front spacer is different so make sure you double check which one. The rear spacers are the same for both abs/ non ABS but the front is shorter on ABS models.
Otherwise you also import twice like I did.
Almsot all rsa models I bumped into so far did not have ABS.

Took 4-6 weeks to get to RSA

Strange that all the X's up here has ABS. Will be sure to check ABS or Non ABS. Thanks
DHL is 14 Euros more that regular post so will go for DHL

Special Interest Threads / Re: WD UAV/Drone thread
« on: July 12, 2018, 07:51:38 am »
Sorry if this has been covered before but I bought a camera drone and returned it again.

I bought it to add some footage to my YouTube channel - MeurigXP

The Civil Aviation Authority has told me that if I wish to add footage to YouTube I need a Commercial remote piloted aircraft license - no exemptions for size or weight.  They referred me to UAV in Cape Town who confirmed the same but added you can upload footage to FaceBook but not YouTube as FaceBook is a closed circle of your chosen contacts.  UAV suggested a commercial license may take 2 - 3 years to obtain.

For Private Use (hobby use/recreation use with no uploads to YouTube etc) there are also limitations 50m from a public road, 50m from private property, 50m from any person, 10km away from any airport or airfield, nowhere near key points, check for restricted airspace etc. etc.

This is BS
No mention of Youtube in UAV law

As a hobbyist you can do what you want with your footage just as long as jou do not monetise your videos or use it to gain from it. Like advertising for you business

Post videos on your personal Youtube channel and stick to the Hobby laws and you'll be fine

OK this bash might be cancelled due to the National Bash http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=226111.msg4091637#msg4091637
Will know this week and update accordingly
Tx

National Bash? As niemand dit kan en wil reel nie hoekom iets soos die op hou sit....Die NW Bash klink moerse lekker met baie belangstelling.

As ek kan sal ek die NW Bash bywoon en seker nog n klomp WD's van die Moot saam sleep.

Back to satellite trackers

Only 2 options
InReach- Garmin (Delorme product bought by Garmin)  min 12 month contract. if it hasn't changed.

Spot- New Spot3 looks good. Pay as you go month to month option

Itís the InReach that Iím investigating.  Purchase price is substantially higher than the Spot, but you have fully functional gps.  Also have a month to month, on/off option now and can send any text message, not only preprogrammed ones.  Still unsure about all the facts, but will update as I get certainty.

Look at Inreach mini

Just to explain

Satellite tracking device use a satellite signal to find your location (Just like a normal GPS) but sends your info back also via satellite transmission. Spot, Inreach, Bleeper on live jacket and in some trucks....this is a very expensive tracking option but works everywhere

Normal tracking devices, Tracker, Netstar and other use satellite signals to determine location and sends it back vie GSM cellphone network. No cell coverage no tracking

Tracker also have a radio signal based tracking devise.

Satelliete tracking is for off grid adventures and not for everyday use.  Every 1 min track point can cost you from R0.20 up to R10.00 thats for 1 point.
Nice thing is some device can send Text massages via SATELLITE network

Your car/bike does not have satellite tracking, its GPS info via GSM

Comparing the road "version" weight, I'll bet that both the Yamaha and KTM will be 180-190kg bikes
Duke 790 169kg Dry -70kw
MT-07 167kg dry- 55kw
