Ek vra verskoning as ek per ongeluk die kak uit jou uit geroost het daar buite moorreesburg op die grondpad.

Nee wat broer. Ek het al baie saam met Roost, Kamany en Bob gery. Ek kan kak sien kom. Was lankal uit jou lyn uit.  :imaposer:

Heddles moet nog leer om nie te naby aan Kamanya te ry nie. Hy is n voorlig ligter terug.  :lol8:

Thanks for a great ride. I really enjoyed it. The body and the ego is just a bit bruised after my meeting with the train tracks.... Never look and wave at the pedestrians if the there is a sharp turn looming..... :imaposer:

My tracklog shows I was at Klipheuwel 08:07
Next time we must work out a signal so I know whether you passed or not  ;D

Not yet I am avoiding pulling the top so I have followed your cleaning guide  ;). Tommorow I will have a look and see if the cam chain is okay maybe the valves if i have the guts to go deeper.
Otherwise I will be the glum faced one at Dirtrider.

Did the motor lock up or just die?

This guy outlined exactly what I felt.
http://www.drz400uk.org/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=6680
His list of broken bits is terrifying me.

It felt like I ran out of petrol, even though I had a full tank I switched to reserve in case there was a blockage somewhere (I know its not logical) then it felt better then once again started bogging down again and the finally the back wheel locked.

There was oil and the coolant was warm when i checked it, no steam i could stick a finger in it. There was no smell or anything out of the ordinary. Heddles stuck it in fourth and pushed it and the wheel didn't budge just scraped along the tarmac.
