Loved the video, you ride so well, that sandy riverbeds can be tricky.

Again, so sorry to hear about the 701 failing on you.

I am surprised that the Ford made it. :pot: :pot:

Then again, today is the one year anniversary of my accident in Vanrynspass, due to irresponsible riding........40 odd years after I started riding.

Some never learn. ::)


I beg to differ.  Just the fact that you are willing to own up to the cause of your crash tells me you have learned a heck of a lot over the years.

Thanks! :thumleft:

I also rode a lot more recklessly when I was younger but in those days there were far less cars on the road, no taxis, very few trucks and in general the environment we rode in was much safer. We were the biggest danger to ourselves then.

Very true, and the general standard of driving was much higher, as was road manners.

Kom neuk jy alweer hier met ou Harry.  Hy moet liewer kom verduidelik van die beste D/S bike se sidestands wat so afval. :pot: :pot:

Seriously though, HD is a bunch of idiots. Dump Eric, then copy the Buells in a "streetfighter" :xxbah:

You are a fan of the 690, arenít you? Do you remember what happened when the first models were released?

Aren't KTM owned by Indians?  :thumleft:

Anyway, just pulling your leg.

Few may realise exactly what an achievement this is.

Possibly bigger than a win in the Dakar.

If you can't even clip a plastic panel into place, perhaps you should move over to the Co-op to do PDI's on their 2nd hand wheelbarrows. :xxbah:

A lot of over-protestation from the innocent Honda camp.

All MM need to do is roll like that soccer player. All the way to KFC.

And while he's away rolling, Yamaha should try slip in a victory or two. >:D

General Technical / Re: Fully to semi synthetic oil - cars
« on: July 07, 2018, 08:05:07 pm »
I have seen car engines that run on less expensive oils like Indy, etc, and I have seen car engines that's run exclusively on the most expensive oils.

I have seen lots and lots of either.

Know what?  There is nothing to show me that the more expensive oiled engines do more mileage.

Nothing whatsoever.

« on: July 05, 2018, 07:50:20 pm »
It will come into SA, sell some models, and depart, leaving owners with a very much de-valued bike.

If there were a market beyond us dreamers for these bikes, Yamaha, Honda, KTM, etc would have had it here already.

Oom two smoke. Why are you saying this? All those big names are actually busy bringing in smaller/lighter bikes. Why will they just hit and run?

I like this Porra scooter hence my questions....Obregado! O0

 :thumleft:  Who is going to bring them in? Who is going to back parts, repairs, warranty, etc?  How long can they secure that engine for this bike?

F.I. is just so much better.

Having said that, and despite of carb troubles along my biking life, in 40 years of motorcycling I have never been left stranded on the road by a carburettor.

Quite a number of F.I hassles though.

The front tyre is very important as that is where your steering is, and the D/S front tyres tend to be far less grippy than a knobbly and will quickly push the front, iow understeer.

The rear does not matter nearly as much as you tend to not even notice a slightly "loose" rear.

But the front needs to be planted firmly, so I use a knobbly on the front, and a long-life D/S tyre on the rear.

In 2015 the fuel limit was set at 20l per race, I canít see a 2t finishing a race on that amount of fuel. But the 500í were monsters that only real men could ride.

The outgoing Yamaha YZR500 used around 18litres per 100kms. So it may jut finish a race. The MotoGP bikes also only just finishes a race on their allotted fuel.

They seem to be sort of similar under full throttle conditions.
