Hi Trailrider.

congrates.

Seeing that we did not get hold of each other when I was down in Moseel and George in December, you now have the means  to come and meet in the Eastern Free State.

Too much of those wheelies and that backtyre will be worn out before you reach me.

If red is the only colour for a Honda, who knows of a place that will do justice to a blue Varadero and not let it cost the same as a second bike.

Enjoy the TA, TR
Let us love people and use things, and not love things and use people.

The TA I did the wheelie with was not mine, but a friend's. He wanted to know if it was possible. I doubt I'll wheelie mine. ;)

For the time being it will be ridden in nicely.

It just had to be Red yes ;D but I read somewhere that the colour is on 4 panels only and if you buy 4 more you can interchange the colour of the bike. Good idea, but those panels will cost plenty methinks.

Very nice!  Bring it to the EC WD Bash next month? - easy route via N2 - Humansdorp - Patensie to camp-site if you feel that the time for gravel exploration is not quite yet there.   BTW, I have always been under the impression that Honda's originate from the land of the Rising Sun, but looking at the first foto I am now totally confused.

The CTX and NXR was built in Brazil. Other models are built in USA, Spain and Japan.

I was wondering about that. I really want to do that trail to the dam, so maybe the CTX would be better.

i always suspected that they build honda's in a backyard somewhere from old rusty metal just lying around  :lamer:



I heard that was the Dakars traded in on the new TAs ;D

Hey TR Congrats ! great colour , may you enjoy many Km's of good riding. Will you be doing any mods?
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
