Personally, I think a nice stripe down the bar counter would have been more artistic... ;)

Can you do that on a 1200GS with dual braking ?  >:D

Of course you can!!!!! Before you do, though....read this:

I performed the same idiotic stuff on one of my previous bikes with a Combined Brake System. (Honda CBR 1100 xx Blackbird)

The result was flawless circle...the only problem (apart from the schredded rear tyre) was the total destruction of the Blackbird's braking systems. I had to travel from Christiana back to Paarl with only about 20% braking ability....trust me....that keeps you awake really well.

The whole Brake system had to be replaced (about R13000 in 1999).

So my short answer is: Sure, man.....rip it up..! Just talk to your bank manager beforehand... ;D

Or put the front wheel against the braai in Uiltjies bar.

I won't do that to your old bike AMA

You better not...she served me well... ;)

Uiltjie.....

Die voorlopige kosteberamings vir die backflip-fiasko na die burnout lyk nie baie belowend nie... :o

Miskien moet ons praat oor alternatiewe....nudge nudge wink wink...

Gaan maar moet groot gaan met die KTM volgende naweek op Struisbaai....if you know what I mean! ;) ;) ;)

Did I buy the wrong bike?  ;)
(the last donut I did was on a 50 ..total different ballgame)

Of course not Slainche....you didn't buy the wrong bike....different strokes for different folks, hey... ;D I would LOVE to have a Beemer when I finally get rid of this hooliganism inside.....it has to happen sooner or later, I'm sure. ???

Can you imagine a life without some sort of release Slainche??? Guys like us will probably never lose it totally....that's why we do what we do, right?

If memory serves me correctly you CAN disconnect the "linked" brakes on the 1200GS.

After you have switched off the ABS they will still be linked untill you press the rear brake, from now on they are breaking independently of each other. That is until the ABS gets activated again.
