I heard the red ones are faster and better than the white ones.....

Apparently that is not a rumor, it is a fact  ! Apparently something to do with the paint finish being
more aerodynamic and thus causing less drag....

Air molecules go faster over red than any other coulour, the same reason a jet fighter's afterburner runs RED HOT   :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Hoe lyk die crash bar plugs?  Ek het sommer sulke swart plestics by die hardeware gekry om die gate toe te maak en dit werk mooi.  Nie juis 'n spog item nie maar doen ook geen afbreek aan die looks nie.  Hulle is baie diskreet en was eintlik 'n pooratech item.

SO my LC is in for:

1. Clutch inspection
2. water pump inspection
3. Grinding noise - this has been confirmed to be only when ridden in hard suspension mode as it should not be used for 1 up  :patch: - apparently the FD  :eek7:
4. Service
5. Possible akro - loan bike has an akro on and fok it sounds lekker  :thumleft:
