I have one of these.
Currently at my brother-in-law's place, he rides it.....

Do I also qualify for the list? ??? ;D

Dude - you better put Mountaiboy's Vespa on that list.
His Vespa's been to at least one place your CTX haven't been: The Cederberg!

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Does anybody on the forum have some inside info on Yamaha? Will the XT250 be made available in SA?

I'm still looking for a scooter to do Baviaans with me. Preferably a BW100 or a Vespa. I think that would make a way cool ride report!  8)

This is awesome:


Really like the light conversion and console.
Would have LOVED to see a 1.9m rider standing next to it - just to get some perspective. :D

BTW - I also have a TW200

The drab olive TW looks mucho macho but the first African pothole would probably shear a few welds in the subframe.

Also not the most desirable scenario to get your boot stuck in mud and having this ammo box riding into your fibula  :o

And there's no dust on the bike. Poser!
