This is an international launch.

There will be another local launch in March.

Perfect area to launch such a bike. DS Heaven.

I'm jealous. Somewhere someone is going to ride that thing in the next two days.
I don't always drop my bike, but when I do, I prefer to drop her in front of a crowd

Now we have to duck and dive on the Oubaai road again for the next few days to avoid the crazy journos. Trailrider do you need someone for a second opinion? GS EXPERIENCED!

Ek hou van jou spy shot tjom :thumleft:

(Nota:Ek is n redelike groot BMW fan (reliability en dealer support) maar hierdie bikes lyk vir my vreeslik baie na iets wat ek nie op n grondpad wil vat nie.  Miskien lyk hulle in lewende lywe en met nobblies bietjie beter - wel, ek hoop so..)
