Die pillion pegs af haal voel my baie soos die engels man se, penny whise but pound foolish!!!

Dit gaan n trails bike word, teensy Kykdaar iemand gaan lift, anders is dit n gewig wat kan verwyder word sonder probleme.

Ja, dit het geen gebruik nie. Matie Spero is maar net suur omdat hy nie meer "bitch" saam met my sal kan ry nie :biggrin:

hahahaha dit was anyway nooit lekker om bitch te ry by jou nie, kon nooit my arms halfpad om kry nie!!!!

maar soos die mane se, grader maar eerder jou agter shock op voor jy warry oor die grame verloor deur jou pegs af te haal!!
I could agree with you! But then we both would be wrong.....

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

Goeie bash plate om die enjin te beskerm!

Ek soek n baie goeie design - een wat ook die kant olie filter cover sal beskerm nadat ek gesien het wat met Matie Sparro sn gebeur het.

Firm up suspension and improve brakes

Ja, I need to get a stiffer rear spring for my fatt butt. Must still decide on what type of modification i must make to the front. Remember, I do not want to go do jumps on a MX track - just want something with a bit better damping.

so what you want is this?

The only thing I need to still do is a decent rear shock, we spent Sunday morning cutting trails over some serious rocky mountains, with the bottom end these bikes have it's a piece of cake.

Yip, a lean and mean DR. Tell me a bit more about the indicators and the rear handles please
 
The flickers are just small R200 per pair jobbies, rear grab handles are stock but I have modified a PSP rack to fit inside the handles as opposed to over them, WR front end, widened and lengthened the foot pegs, aluminum gear shifter, FCR39 (YZ450) carb, KTM front fender, IMS tank fekking loud exhaust etc etc etc,, works well for me
Life is too short to ride a Honda
