Breekbeen congrats!

Love the sticker kit, can you tell us more about it? Do they give you any option in adding their name like that? There is a lot of Helderberg advertising going on. Or do you at least get a little discount for it? How much was the sticker kit?

Die sticker kit het eintlik niks met die dealer te doen nie, ek het self daarop besluit.
Het na baie ontwerpe gekyk en van die skema gehou, dit toe laat ontwerp en bietjie getweak.
Bandit signs/ Racestar het die kit gedoen, Was rondom R 2500.
Ek kom al n lang tyd saam met die spesifieke dealer en gee n bietjie gratis advertising.

So, ek het nog net kans gehad vir n vinnige draai die naweek.
Sodra ek kan gaan ek n behoorlike draai ry.
Het nog net so 150km gedoen waarvan seker net 10km grond was.
Disclaimer:
Ek is nie soos die meeste op die Forum, n "riding god" nie.
Ek hou ook nie van in n dorp ry nie, ek het my vorige scooter ( 660 Tenere) seker so 7 jaar terug verkoop en die laaste groot bike wat ek gery het was n vriend se
2015 1200 GSA. So ek is nie juis baie gewoond nie.
Saterdag was die eerste keer wat ek op die fiets gesit het, na al die comments oor die fiets het ek dadelik gedink ek gaan die arme scooter se gat heeltemal plat sit met my 100kg.
Ek was nogal verbaas wat daar was in teendeel baie min sag.
Ek was dadelik gemaklik op die fiets en alles het reg gevoel, moes bietjie gewoond raak aan die agter briek, dit voel asof die clutch cover baie ver uitstaan en dit het n tydjie( seker 10min) gevat om daaraan gewoond te raak.
Die agter briek wou glad nie vat nie. Het amper los oor n stop gery, maar nadat ek hom so bietjie gedrag het vat hy mooi. Seker nog bietjie vetterig gewees.
In die dorp en in verkeer ry die scooter lekker en gemaklik, eerste rat is amper oorbodig. Fiets voel nie soos n 200kg + fiets nie.
Ry posisie vir my is baie gemaklik, ek ry met Offroad helmet en goggels en tot op 140 was daar geen buffeting, Ek het nog nie vinniger gery nie.
Op 140 loop die scooter ook lekker, nie soos met die 660 wat ek al begin jammer kry het op daai spoed nie.

Die grondpad was maar n groot gravel highway met baie sinkplaat, het besluit om bietjie te staan, ek is maar lui, en wou nie op die teerpad soos n Meerkat lyk nie.
Staan baie gemaklik, nie nodig vir handlebar raisers vir my nie, ek is 1.89m.
Traction goed, kan gemaklike powerslides doen sonder om te stres.
Tyd sal leer, maar ek like die fiets al klaar, voel net reg.
Het wel nog nie een van die ander gery nie, so gaan nie se dit is beter as enige ander scooter nie behalwe die ou 660Z kan dit nie eens vergelyk nie, en ek het my 660 ook gelove.
Sal maar laat weet as ek eers gebottom het :pot:
Groete

I'm looking forward to seeing footage or pics of a T7 rider wheeling past a broke down 790, it's going to be epic!
