I did the Jozi to Kozi trip this past weekend. It was WET with a lot of mud and clay.

Please be aware that the Africa Twin has a serious design flaw in these conditions, the front mudguard is to close to the front wheel, so when the tyre clogg up with mud, the front lock up, resulting in some heavy falls. Please take special care before you ride any wet and muddy roads, the bike does not work in these.

Ja I was going to say, speak to Jacques from Riot Gear, he has some nice farkles for your bike

Who knows what happened to Zambezi Honda? One of my mates wanted to get his twin serviced there since I referred him and he said the doors are closed? Dont tell me they are out of business?
I loved their service.

They are now only a car dealership. As far as I know only Menlyn and Centurion has a bike department. Both of them is very, very useless, in my experience.

Correct, could not agree more.
