Vandag n Mitas 130/80-17 gekoop by Helderberg Yamaha in S/wes vir R1200. Klaar opgesit.

Die vorige Mitas, n 140/80-17, het presies 19849kms gedoen. Baie happy.

My latest purchase ,but defintly not my finest . Super light with internal sun visor. Two issues I have with it though. I cannot close the front air vent so in a crosswind the air comes through the front and rushes up over my eyes,causing them to water. Only fix is tape it up,not something you expect on a R6k lid. Other thing is the peak tapers too much,so lat afternoon or early morning sun is not fun.

Rather live one day like a lion than 100 days like a sheep

Ok nothing really exceptional, it's just a knife sharpener. But a knife sharpener that WORKS!
Take it out the box, read the instructions and do as instructed. In minutes you have a sharp knife.
And it's locally made.. :thumleft:

I knew I should not have shown you all

At the end of the day it's just a car - no more no less

For me its one of those bucket list things - ever since I can remember (30 plus years) I have enjoyed the shape of the 911 and its evolution from the volla - I always wanted an air cooled G series or 993 shape until I drove them - very noisy, hot and outdated - the 996 was a major leap forward for Ferry and co

Does not look, or run so well right now, but still puts a huge grin on my face. Give me a year or so and we talk again  :thumleft:


Spotted at Duneworx Yamaha in Swakopmund recently. Apparently competed in the Paris Le Cap.



You mean I must buy it ??? :lol8:

I still would be very keen to hear some more of the history of this bike. Who rode it?

Yesterday I bought a tank full of petrol for the DR :D

My nicest purchase of the last 6 months:

Some impressive purchases here. Guess they somewhat overtrump my latest outlay of R55:oo for rubbers to overhaul my rear master cylinder.  :-[

And even if I knew how to post pictures, I couldn't 'cos they're already installed.

Maybe I could try to post pics of the old ones, but I don't suppose anyone's interested, see one, seen them all......... :biggrin:

My laaste ride wat ek gekoop het  :biggrin:



Maar as ek geweet het die SE gaan my so duur kos, het ek hom gelos  :laughing4:
Mamma het my herhinner dat sy 3 jaar laas n kar gekry het, en as daar toys in die garage kan inkom, sal sy maar haar keuse ook kan maak. Ingelukkig het my vrou nie geval vir n nuwe Polo nie  :pot:  >:D

A neighbour of mine mentioned it to me about a month ago when he heard that I was going up that way.

Apparently it competed in the Paris Le Cap, which must have been in the early 90's if memory serves. The bike was apparently written off somewhere up there, and the owner of that shop has spent the intervening years rebuilding it. Apparently was pretty much a full spec factory machine at  the time. Would  have been really interested in taking it off his hands, but the hassle of trying to get the thing registered here overrides that desire......
