Was vanoggend gou by Bavarian ook, en die stanchions wat net voor die trophy naweek nuut opgesit was het reeds te veel van 'n gaping om net die clamps oor te druk, en moet dus eers vervang word. So ek moet wag tot daar weer stanchions in voorraad is. Blykbaar is ek nr 160 op die lys...
Jy kan altyd Nelspruit toe ry. Hulle se hulle het oorgenoeg voorraad. Bel dalk en maak 'n afspraak vir jou as jy sou wou...
Wel, met 0.25mm gapings (en Bavarian wat voorstel ek ry nie die bike nie) sal ek maar nie al die pad Nelspruit toe ry nie. Ek het darem swambo se bike om intussen te ry. As sy my gaan toelaat, bygesÍ :lol8:

Trailer het ek in gedagte gehad. Maar ja, as jy kan wag dan is dit beter seker. Spaar geld met hierdie bleddie duur tolhekke

Went to Umhlanga BMW to get mine checked and was told not to ride the bike until they could fix the front shocks.

Got told yesterday stock has arrived. Taking bike in on Monday.

Definitely interested, please?

Mine was checked.  Gap within spec.  Bush fitted.  Took less than an hour.  My major complaint is they were all out of muffins!  SIES!!!   :ricky:

Ek was vandag by BMW hier in PE. Ek het nog nooit so baie GS bikes gesien voor die workshop staan nie! En daar was baie bikes wat op pallets vasgemaak was nog, wat jy kan sien die couriers daar afgelaai het. Almal kliente se bikes.

Skoon my gat afgeskrik, dit lyk wreed jong  :peepwall:

Was ook daar vandag. Lyk soos 'n veiling daar.
Wat bly oor om te koop in die klas?
KTM het ook sy kak, Tenere is kak boring.
Miskien Ducati nou dat hier 'n diens agent is.
