Jeez, Boer bly jy is OK. Gelukkig crash Huskies baie goed, gewoonlik baie min skade.
Ek het 'n groot klip raakgery teen so 90+ en toe snakebite my tube ook en die voorwiel was baie vinnig pap, dit was 'n interressante paar oomblikke om bo te bly tot ek kon stop. Het gelukkig besef die wiel kan pap word, so was nie besig om te versnel nie.
Geluk met jou nuwe bike, jy gaan hom nog baie geniet, miskien ry ons eendag saam.

Hell welcome to the Husky section, very glad to hear that you are relatively OK after a nasty fall.

Hope the bike is OK as well!  :thumleft:

Too many stories of old hands going down hard in the last few days!  >:(

PS You bike looks very nice (or at least it  :-[)

So after my crash with the Husky, I had a check up on my busted knee, and confirmed that I cracked my patella.

I'm obviously tough enough (read stupid) to bite through it, and it's bitten me in the arse a bit.  I have bumped my knee so many times at work (in construction) and every time if feel it. 

I can clearly feel a new dent vertically across my kneecap after my front tyre blow out.

In short, I haven't been riding since, and I am desperate to get back on the Husky.

On the upside, I dropped my bang up bike off at Blazes to give it his magic wand once over, and boys!  I promise you I am glad I did.

So we all know Blazes is the local King when it comes to carbon.  This gentleman has honed his hobby to a fine art, and I am truly grateful that he allowed me to twist his arm in making me up some extra stuff as well. I went to see my Husky at Blazes house last night, and it felt like visiting a friend in prison.  I've been working, and he has been resting and pumping iron.  :biggrin:

So the Carbon fibre bits are all on and it makes the bike look amazing.

I also had the header pipes ceramic coated inside and out, and it also looks really great, and Blazes will fit them for me.

But best of all is the headlight conversion.  A few posts back I posted the lights from Extreme Lights.  Those little round bobs with 3600Lumens each. 

Now look what Blazes got up to!

The carbon screen fits onto the existing one, and lifts the screen by 150mm, which will give a lot better wind protection. I am 1.9m short and I get a lot of wind on the husky standard setup.

He also made up a custom bracket and fitted the two LED lights to the bracket, and it does not fit to the screen anymore, which is a lot less vibration on the lights.

The one light is on dims. And brights equals 7200 Lumens of bright white light when both the LED's come on. 
Seeing as I also lost my glasses during my fall, I need all the help I can get to see where I am going.

Looks very cool - I see now why the King of karbon has not got round to my exhaust guards  ::)  I have two of those 3600 lumen LED's on my HP2 that I imported a while back before available locally - must say they are amazing and are coupled to a 8"Baja Design HID  :o

Thank you very much - that would be fantastic! And if I may - could you make also cover for the exhaust header? The aluminium one rattles quite a bit.
