Dis nie enige man wat sy splinternuwe bike wat hy nog nie self gery het nie aan sy pel toevertrou nie.  Ek voel ge-eerd Tom...dankie..sal haar mooi oppas en inry.  As jy terug is sal sy REG wees vir die langpad.

Vanoggend gou brekkie in Heidelberg...my swaartjie wat nou in DOWN UNDER bly is op besoek. Hy het ander planne vir die dag, dus kon ons nie te lank ry nie.
Hy op my S-10, Francois op sy S-10 en ek en die BAAS op TVB se Explorer.
Darem so klein stukkie grondpad geproe...net om 'n ligte stoffie op te sit.. :ricky:

When I look at those photos it hits me how BMW lost out. All Yammie and triumpt riders would  be GS owners.  ;D.  I am sure they beat their chests with sadness.  Oh boy did they domininate this market for a while. :eek7:

Yes I could not agree more. Do remember even Honda will take a slice of this cake, I have seen a few already on the road although no WD"s yet. Was thinking; do these guys not know about the WD's or do they know but not interested to join and share information  ???

I would have bought I BMW for sure if it was not for a test ride on first the S10 and second the Truimph which 'sold me'. Stunning bike - must say the S10's are still selling in numbers!  :thumleft:

Hi.

Still trying to do a back to back  dirve between Explorer and Crosstourer, thnking of putting a S10 in also.

I might be able to book a demo Explorer from the Mean Team,  I have  teh Guys from a Honda Dealer awaiting a date  and seesm that here might be a S10 and  another Eplorer to combine?

Thinking of having a plus minus 300 km trip  which have high way, secondary road, gravel high way and a bit of technicla in.  ( myself haven't been onn the dirt in 4 years).  Just to get a date tha t myself can be availbale  together with Demo.

Nice bike TVB
