Ja, it's only going to North Africa, because the GS310 has captured the market in South Africa  :lol8:

Dis 'n bitter mooi bike. Ek soek nog 'n 'replacement' vir die KTM 990R. Hierdie bike of die KTM 790adv mag dalk die worthy vervanging wees.. :thumleft:

3:35 where they are taking it. The Yamaha PR guy keeps talking about "light", lets see hard to believe but yes I like it a lot and if I'm ever able too I would buy this bike  :deal:

:thumleft:

The Yamaha's gear linkage is longer..... :thumleft:

Their engine is seriously tall - I would like to see the two powerplants next to one another. I suspect the KTM one is much lighter and more compact. Yammie longer stroke and KTM faster revvving - history repeating itself?

The more I see this bike, the less I want to.  :'( It breaks my heart knowing that I probably won't own one for a while.

An enthusiastic fellow, isn't he? Almost as enthusiastic as the guy next to him giving the thumbs-up. Perhaps someone told him his cap didn't fit just before the photo was taken.  :lol8:

I think it important to try and keep a straight poke-ehr face in these serious times of fighting off the paparazzi 😜
