as iemand se jy ry `n lekke bike, dan se jy dankie. Stem 100% saam, dit is baie goeie maniere
as iemand se jy ry `n crap bike, hanteer dit soos `n setpil. Hang af hoe jy die setpil hanteer, as jy daaroor gaan stress gaan jy jouself oop maak vir baie stirr en dan moet jy dit maar vat soos dit kom,
Jy nou alweer nie werk nie, of wil jy ons nou vertel van daai lorrie van jou met die 'tuning fork' simbool?

I know deep down we feel like this, a lot of us, but... I wonder what would happen if we ALL take ALL other bikes for a day ride.... and we're honest about the results. I remember once taking an ol FJ1100 out for spin...all I could do is dream about that bike for months

Deel net eers aan die begin van die rit maatbande uit sodat almal kan meet wie's die grootste voor die evaluasie prosses begin. Dan is dit OK.

All that I got out of those threads is that the Suzuki and Honda guys need to start their own brand bashing threads.

It's just KTM this and BMW that and Yamaha this...

And then the Kawasaki guys can join the Triumph guys in the quiet corner when they get here... .
 ;D   :pot:

Cmon man, the world would be a boring place if we all rode the same thing or expected others to follow suit whith what we do.
I like different bikes from all the brands. All brands have their runts of the litter and each of us have reasons for not liking bike A or B.
Why try and force what you got onto someone else. You can give advise and give opinions but let the person do what they feel best. And when their bike brakes no matter what brand help the dude out without making him feel worse about his bad luck.

We are all bikers at the end of the day.

dis maar simpel volroom.

as iemand se jy ry `n lekke bike, dan se jy dankie. Stem 100% saam, dit is baie goeie maniere
as iemand se jy ry `n crap bike, hanteer dit soos `n setpil. Hang af hoe jy die setpil hanteer, as jy daaroor gaan stress gaan jy jouself oop maak vir baie stirr en dan moet jy dit maar vat soos dit kom,
Jy nou alweer nie werk nie, of wil jy ons nou vertel van daai lorrie van jou met die 'tuning fork' simbool?

I do have preferences... and reasons for it, albeit superficial maybe... for example. I prefer Japanese ICE vehicles, because I perceive a sense of perfectionism among them. Stoopid examples, Toyota and Honda has not yet brought out turbo petrol models, where other have followed suit, even Mazda is lagging behind the 'new technology'. I think they resist because they are purists at heart, and that's the kind of engineer I want to design the engine of my vehicle. See 2SD, I'm on your side  ;D  I also like the Germans...haha! That's again my perception. Why does German products say on the label in bold with a German flag to boot" mad in Germany". Because, I think, there is a perception that products made in Germany are quality made...however, you get Opel that's German, and the old citi golf (volkwagen) which needed an overhaul at 160-180k km. I'm not particularly a BMW fan, i think their snobs and arrogant. but again, that's my perception - but I must admit, they know how to build engines.

In the end..how do we 'know' anything? very little can we be sure of.. even scientific knowledge remains man's interpretation of the world. With that in the end, I'd want to know the vision of a company, what is in their hearts? Is the MAIN thing what it is supposed to be? or..are their other priorities? Are they passionate about producing a quality bike that is the way they want it, a products they can be proud of? How much research and design? The other day I read about the triumph rocket cruiser, they rode on those bikes and finished 6000 tires, some riding 24/7 http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/triu/triumph_rocket_iii%2004.htm

Why did they do this? I can just imagine that they wanted to be sure, that when this bike was released, it would be what they wanted it to be, and could be ridden reliably..that this bike would not bring shame to the Triumph brand...

Vir die wat lui is om te lees.... ek hou van n Triumph rocket
