Thanks for the info.

I have other questions as well, as I would rather hear opinion of an owner with miles in the seat more than some internet reviewer...

Do you have the ABS or NON-ABS variant? Is the ABS a pain in the backside on gravel?

I have the ABS model, as I find it to be useful in traffic.
I have however fitted an override switch which enables me to disable the ABS while riding.
I found that 95% of the time the ABS would not be much of a problem on gravel, but I had a close call in the Cederberg in a turn on a recently graded dirt road with a negative camber when I had to reduce speed quickly, so fitted the switch thereafter.

That is a good looking bike !!!

Where did you get the bash plate? ??? It's perfect for those very prominent header pipes.

Got the bashplate from Dual Sport Designs in Wellington.
It is made from 6mm allu with all other mounting hardware in stainless steel.
I had another bashplate before this, but that one failed and almost had me go down in traffic.
It does have a fairly high price, but after seeing the other  options out there I bit the bullet and am very happy so far.

Ek het gewonder wat van jou geword het. Soos altyd, voortreflik mooi geskryf in kleurvolle Afrikaans met puik fotos  :thumleft:

+1000

vreeslik lekker saamgery, baie dankie  :thumleft:   :thumleft:

Heel paar keer lekker gelag maar hierdie een vat die koek:
"Ek kon onwetend saam ETS en Cocky my poerdesmerdes geval het.  Ons kon groepafslag by die hospitaal gekry het.  Gelukkig is ek die beter ruiter en kom niks oor nie."

Can anyone tell me, why is there 2 buttons on the 1250 keys you can press, yet nothing happens?
Its obvious  they are dummies, but why?

Maybe for a alarm that can be fitted  extra or what?

Favourite weekend getaways:
-Clarens
-Dullstroom

Favourite Rugby team:
- Blue Bulls

Favourite pastime:
- Golf
- Flyfishing
- Moering mamma when the Bulls lose.

Drinks:
- Ricky Louw en Tab.

Drives:
- White: Fortuner or Range Rover

Try again. While I do fly fish and occasional go to Dullstroom the rest is way off.

I ride a classic Bike that the 1290 can't persuade me to sell let alone a 1250.

The only team worth supporting are the Lions. I am worried you might understand this point.

Was in Clarens about 8 years ago. The beer was okay but had better elsewhere.

But stirrers need to be stirred occasionally.

Pot naai....indeed

Attempted Old Mill Drift pass on Saturday in the rain. Was a lot of fun. Such a beautiful place. Got about 200m into the Bokpoort turnoff, about halfway up the pass, when I encountered a badly rutted and super slippery section which essentially ended my effort. Doable on a 650 when its dry but certainly nothing bigger.

Thats exactly as far as I got on my R1200GS Adventure - and then spent an hour turning it around to get back down again - I cannot wait to get back there on the X-Challenge!!

I may be keen on something even smaller..
