What did I do with my LC....I took delivery of it... 8) 8) 8)  on Saturday from JHB...delivered to my door.

....and Murphy's law...it rained almost the whole weekend!!!! :'(  2014 with 7200 kms on the clock.

Only did a little 2-up ride on Sunday up the comrades route road to Inchanga Station, but WOW, how different is this machine!!!

Lekker  :thumleft:

I get mine tomorrow, 2016 Triple Black with 2400kms on, and a cheeky little gearshift assist the previous owner added.

very excited!!

Fitted some crashbars. SW Motech Black on the Triple black looks better than expected (out of stock of stainless...)

Thanks to Dustriders as always for epic service

PS - prob not a one man job! That main bolt through the frame was a %* to get off!!!

Jabo fitted a Toolbox to the pannier bracket and moved the number plate to the right. Now I will have tools on hand when riding without panniers. Lesotho here we come!

My Akropovic slip on needed to be repacked, as it burnt through, and it discoloured the pipe.

While it was in I had it black Ceramic dipped and then repacked.

now my pipe is as new.  :thumleft:

I will now have a quad black.  :imaposer: :imaposer:
