Ek begin al self opgee oor Yamaha.

MAYDAY - MAYDAY - MAYDAY ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Kan die naaste Wille Hond gou pille vir Dan gaan bring? Valium sal doen, of iets sterkers soos DP, Mandrax, Cocaine or watever jy beskikbaar het!
Hy voel heel-beslis nie wel nie ! ! ! !

@Beserker , @Mof , kommin asseblief, dis n noodgeval?



 :lol8:
Dalk het hy die GS specials gesien!

Magtig m0lt3n, natuurlik, DIT moet dit wees!
Bogger Chris dus, dis hy wat Dan se hartkloppings veroorsaak het: Foei Man!
Ou Dan jong, dis n fake-news storie die, dis net n tiepe duur huur van n 750 cc-tjie, baie minder krag as daai steierende wit KTM so hold your horses, drink n sterk doppie, put your feet up en wag vir die one-time-addictive drugs wat binnekort aan jou deur afgelewer sal word!  :thumleft:

Ek sukkel om net verby Donford's "Motorrad" te ry, laat staan nog daar ingaan.

BMW het nou n special, as jy n GS310 koop kry jy n F750 verniet saam. Maar, niemand koop. :thumleft:

So we're STILL WAITING for someone to actually buy one? 


Jesus Yamaha is useless.

I cannot argue with a KTM rider who is well versed in KTM service, and knows the expression of "useless" very well. :pot:

I was thinking about this last night.   I've actually had great service from FAST KTM and Raceworx. 
They actually REPLY TO EMAILS! which is amazing considering how some people (especially in the motor industry) refuse to use this "new fangled" technology of electronic mail, and instead only grace you with a reply if you present yourself in their shop, or use the wonder of Alexander Graham Bell's "Telephone".

On top of this, the 1290 SuperAdventure R, which is JAM PACKED with wicked electronics and sensors etc, (A TFT DASH with no moving parts! The horror!!), and a "finnicky orange bike"  has been the single most reliable vehicle I've ever owned so far I think. (Yes I've had a Jeep but it was a string of Volkswagens before that).

(I'm only half Joking.  KTM seems to have quite a decent dealer coverage throughout the country. I wouldn't really know where to go look for a Yamaha these days?   That big shop on the M1 that sells boats and pianos?)
It seems your perspective is a bit warped.
VW's reliable?
Try Toyota for a change.

Your references to fine KTM workshops that reply to sad emails are useless.

When you have a yamaha, you don't need workshops.
Nor do you have to build up some special relationship with them in order to have them soothe your reliability concerns.

NoneKing, jou selektiewe strondpraat geheue los toe die Honda's uit.

Toyota het baie hard gewerk, oor baie jare, om tot die voordeel van die klient n reputasie vir waarlik uitnemende betroubaarheid te vestig, tot n mate ten koste van opwindendheid.

KTM het baie hard geadverteer, oor baie jare, om tot voordeel van die maatskappy n reputasie van ren-gereedheids te vestig, tot n groot mate ten koste van betroubaarheid.

Daar, in n neutedop, le jul hartklop.

Chris, wat ek se is dat die BMW fabriek nie hul eie "GS" bikes in die Dakar gehad het nie.

Dit was HPN met die onderstelle, en Mahle, ens. met die enjins.
