Fitted some decals yet Clint?

On my side, I need to replace bigfoot. Will do a DIY jobby though.

Not riding much atm. But here is some pics of my daighter who loves getting on the bike and going for a ride around the block.

I haven't gotten around to the wrap yet. Been too busy racking up mileage. I got her on 8000km when she was just under 2 years old. I've put on 6000km in the 2.5 months I've had her.

I also had to sell my Jeeps first to free up some capital. One down, one left to go, then I can do the wrap.

For now I'm just riding whenever I get a gap. Unfortunately Afrisam is busy with their shutdown, so I'm working silly hours for another two weeks, but then it's back on the road. I think I need to do a PE trip...

Hallo Manic!! Die bike is nou puik man! Ek sal letterlik eerder nou op die bike klim en rondom Afrika skiet, as wat ek op n nuwe 1090 of 1290 sal, of enige ander bike. Hulle het nog so paar goedjies wat eers sal breek

In other news, haven't been riding much. Hope to do some mileage today.
Getting some random stickers today also, will update pictures when fitted.

Still love my bike very much. The issues there is, I know and do not steel my confidence when riding anymore. This used to be a huge issue for me and stole a lot of my riding confidence. Example is the MTC failure. I do not get it often but when I do I know it's either a flat battery from standing or throttle bodies not closing completely, the only issue then is driving in street mode without TC till the next stop, and that is also great to just be reminded of what a beast this is. I ride in offroad mode most of the time...

The stickers I had made wasn't as nice as I hoped but still made a huge difference, my bike looked crap being plain black, now it's tons better.

Had a nice day out. We were supposed to do a small trip but with Philip having some puncture drama we had to bail on the trip. It was still great fun, even in 43degree heat. Managed to see a lot of animals and got some great pics of my bike :)

Thanks mtr. I would like to think so too.
Just wish I could ride more!

I cant even commute to work as I have to drop the kids off at daycare, but also, I cant behave. I am not a super good rider but I cant behave on this bike and there is super stringent rules at the mine where I work they will fire me. :(

with all my other bikes I am sad that I never told their story....


..... delivered at a friends house. Thanks again Philip!
And up to now, I still have to buy browny points from my wife to spend some time on my bike! I have still ridden less than Philip on my own bike, 4 days later

I just started to read this thread - and think you should move in with Philip!
He sounds like a good dude, and you can always go kuier at your own place if the pining for (censored, something cat-like) gets too bad.

Update time!!!

With my last outing I bend the Akront front rim on a rock. Bike actually took two knocks on rocks, first I was standing and weight on the rear tyre so it was a rather spectacular moment kicking the front wheel up pretty high, no damage. Next one was gunning it in thick sand and it a hidden rock in the sand while in a corner. One of those where you just clench your jaw and wait to feel if the tyre is also deflated.

So I can give feedback that the new Akront is a lot stronger than the previous Saxxes, but not strong enough and I should have gotten something aftermarket. My riding is 'evolving' as I gain more and more experience and confidence on the bike. So the hits it has to take gets harder and harder.
Already fixed though. My stepfather has a press, fixed my saxes rim (he wanted to, likes to play with his press, I will not use it again though) and he just fixed this rim as well but says it was a mission. Was very hard and eventually had to heat it up.

Also due was oil change. Bike is now at 35000, (IIRC I got it at 18000). mentioning it here I can come and check when I serviced it in my thread in future.
This time I took time out to make the hole in the bash plate bigger so that it is possible to remove and clean the oil screen without removing the bash plate. So an oil change is very easy now.
Still happy with the oil Manic, previous owner, used. Shell Racing 4T. Used it again. The only issue still is my clumsiness...
I spilled A LOT of oil.
For future reference, oil out of rear screen comes out slow, no problem. Oil out of drain plug also comes out slow, no problem. But oil out of front comes out in a thick stream!

First picture shows the hole I made bigger, It actually looks pretty good, I will retake picture later when the edges are not cleanly filed.
Second picture has the bike on its side, the hydraulic jack just collapsed beneath bike (3 days after service), probably because of all the oil that spilled over it. Fortunately no new damage to bike.
Bike is on the jack because I had to fix the wheel and no centre stand.

NOW I am really raring to go for a ride!

Bigger hole in the bashplate sounds like a good idea.....Ballache removing the thing every time.

I also want to change the oil on mine but I've been super lazy the last few weeks.

wasn't to difficult and I think worth it. I have been putting off the oil change for way to long.
Or rather the rest of the work, I am waiting for cash to clear. I need to replace a support arm for the windscreen and one inner front panel. Called RAD today but they are closed for stock taking till 5th March :(

Next month I want to fit a sticker kit!!! So soon I will be asking opinions on what to get, or for people to share options. I cant wait, but don't have a clue on what I want!!

Martin. Daai tweede foto..... dit lyk nie of daai baie mense is wat beindruk is met daai glips nie. By vrouens word dit meestal uitgeken deur die "suikerpotjie" stance.

Had a lot of fun yesterday at Frylinkspan. Bike as awesome as ever.



I seem to be useless with rubes though, had another flat, valve ripped off again. But this time riding buddy showed me what I was possibly doing wrong. I was putting washer over valve, then through rim then another washer (tubeless rims hole are big) and nut. He showed me it should be washer then nut tightened then though the hole. Holding thumbs.

Klink my hulle het daar n bietjie reen gehad so 3 dae vroeer. Maar die res van die area nie veel nie. Ook niks by Van Zylsrus so 60km van daar nie.

Hier is nog 2 fotos van die naweek...
