Voorste 2 flikkers skyn permanent + "Day-time running lights" onder elke hooflig ...  :thumleft: Wanneer jy 'n kant se flikkerligte aanskakel - flikker dit meer helder - meer LED's word geaktiveer.

Well, thanks to all the well wishers.

Herewith a short non- scientific report on a short gravel trip this past Sunday.
I lowered the Tyre pressures to 160 and 200 respectively as I am concerned about the amount of traction of the standard Dunlops on gravel, especially of the very fine kind we find in the Garden Route.
As I haven't been biking for 3 years and my previous steed was a 650 Alp, and I am still getting into the groove again as well as getting used to all the power, I took it easy, not that I normally ride much harder.
The only adjustment I made was to lift the bars into a more off road angle.
I'm 1.82 in length and standing is as natural as can be.
The bike is really very smooth on power delivery but can also catch one out if you are not paying attention on your input with the right wrist.
The ABS both front and rear works well and saved me from overshooting a sharp bend and or dropping the bike.
Traction control is very effective, more so I think, with the non aggressive Dunlop threads going uphill and gassing it around a bend. For which I'm grateful :ricky: Being able to switch between different levels of assistance is really handy.
Switching the TC off and gassing it, the bike stayed straight and true until the tyres started gripping and would then power forward at a smooth fast pace with no checks in the power delivery.

It feels very light for a 1000 cc, is well balanced and flick-able enough to enable a rider with reasonable off road skills to attempt difficult single track terrain like game trails or cattle paths.
I deliberately aimed for sandy patches and old tracks, as well as by choice hitting some potholes. The suspension soaked it all up without once indicating a tendency to become unbalanced.

In the right hands, this could be the weapon of choice of for many weekend warriors, or serious long distance travelers.
For the average Joe, I believe, there is no better big bore DS bike to be getting into the DS game with.
Everything about the bike just feels right. I could even live with the narrow pegs. The seating is very comfortable and leave enough space to move backwards on the seat if you want to go low behind the screen.
I would love the screen to be slightly wider for more protection around the shoulders. The wind was blowing with some intensity on Saturday and I could feel the effect on the bike, a bigger heavier bike (1200) might not be as effected.
On start-up, the engine sound is, to me, spot on. Giving notice of the beast lurking within. The engine note never becomes intrusive and will allow one to enjoy nature and not to upset some farmers :lol8: or your riding buddies.
Although not even close to be run in, this bike is quick and fast as I've come to realize on short tar road sprints with my friend XRRX.

I have ordered decent bash plates, crash bars from SWMotech and a centre stand. Knoblies will complete the package.

For ME, this is the best all round big DS bike availble.
