Collected my new LC
« on: January 17, 2014, 08:40:55 am »
I collected my new 2014 Thunder Grey LC ,I  have no idea how they get to that name , I would call it anthracite . This is my 9th modern or oil cooled GS and I have to say that after only doing 60km's home last night this is a machine. The difference is night and day.

I leave at 5am tomorrow to go visit some farms up Fouriesburg / Ladybrand way .This will give me an opportunity to ride some highway , dirt Highway and a couple of farm paths leading to some nice private farm dams to do a little bass fishing .

By the time I get back I would have done roughly a thousand kilo's and will give my opinion then on the bike.
I am not here for a long time , I am here for a good time !

Watse ekstras het jy op die bike?
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

Enjoy! I have done near 10000km's and had loads of fun, awesome bike.

If you feel like a cold one, my sister and her husband farms out near Ladybrand, they always welcome visitors.

As owners we know very well what it looks like. We also know it makes you look cool and there are those that will pretend to own one to gain some street cred in the K50 section of the forum. :joker:

Photos means proof!
