Howzat Hanno,
Hope to see you in Godini Spa next year when we come down for the GS Challange.
Start saving now & be there.

On a more lighter note. Yes the BM will do more & plenty Kms.
Just got to keep out of the way of the taxies and stay on the dirt.

Lekker long weekend to you.

Congrats. That bike will love you for it.

Just curious, how much oil does she use? Mine is starting to use now on 75k, but it varies a lot, so difficult to say how much.

She is just so high on revs because she is so hot.

Thought I would post this trip meter because it looks so good

So the Km march on. I don't apologise for the dirt as it is as GSA
Took the bike out into the rain to work but the rain did not wash it enough.
Tough. wait for the next PE floods then.
