Kickstarting an XR is like a raindance, once you know the secret ritual you can make it rain on command.

Cool bikes till the TDM850 - toe bliksem hy van die appelkar af... ;) ;D

He's getting back on track with the CRF though! ;D





Going back to my roots, must say for me the perfect DS bike is a 650 .
 Light enough for the rough and it can cruise above the speedlimit.
 I ride a lot more with the CRF than with the 1200. Its just a very lekker playbike.
