The weekend, while resting a bit on Sani, I made proper use of the crash bars.  :biggrin:

Hey OomD. How was Sani Pass? We going in two weeks

It's quite rough. The melting snow, it seems, took most sand with it, leaving exposed (and very loose) rocks in its wake. No fun negotiating those switchbacks while the earth beneath you also moves. My Karoo 3 has chunks out the back tyre the way I was slipping around. Make sure your tyre still have deep grooves (or high knobs).

That being said, I consider myself of limited skills. This was my third Sani trip, and the first time I rested a bit. Very grateful for the people that stopped and help pick the bike up!

Well, I went and bought one, a 2016 1200GS LC with 1000 kms on the clock. Collected it this afternoon and enjoyed the ride home but it will take some getting used to after my Triumph Speed Triple. Roll on Level 1 training at the end of the month.
How many were there, which way did they go? I must find them, I am their leader

Congrats.

Just add quick shifter then you won't look back.

The tank looks like an Adventure but the rest does not. Great looking GS! Where did you get those mag wheels from?

Judging by the number plate I'd say that's not an SA model. Wonder where the photo was taken?

The plate is "ITSBLCK WP" which is a Western Cape personalized number...

It is an adventure - just highly played with, I got the mags with the bike, its a private plate so looks odd at this angle, pic was taken last month near Clan William

Fitted Akrapovic headers, to get rid of the right side heat issue and a skid plate.

Brucet, is the right side heat a problem of the past after fitting the Acrapovic headers. I also want to go that route.
