...the last green KLR in SA (it was hidden in KMSA's stores and I managed to find it)

Geez... that doesn't bode very well for me...  :-[

But congrats!!!!! Glad everything is sorted!  ;D
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Have just read this thread glad to hear that firstly you are well and that you have managed to find a new Green machine. Hope that you have many k's of happy and safe riding. Enjoy  :)
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
