Think you have a co-fan joining soon ;)

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

*blush!*

And hehe, please keep us posted.
Also if you know about any safari tanks, I could really use one of those too, there doesn't seem to be many 2nd hand ones going around. I checked with the importer and a new one will set me back about 10k. Eish, will just have to look around a bit more :-\

Thank you gser! I think I am already in love with this bike, I dried it and cleaned it up a bit after we came in from the rain. Then I just stood there admiring it. What an awesome bike! I will take very good care of it I promise :)
And yes, if everything goes according to plan we will see you at Amageza for sure  :thumleft:

Not an issue. Like all BMW's dating back many decades parts are available. Also with Husky having used the same engine quite extensively there is that route as well. Lots also on eBay etc as well.
