Hey Skip_ZA, glad to see you've stuck with the green light protector. Also, lekker pic by the way.  :thumleft:
Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.

Now here's the story. This was some time back. Wify and I in Baviaans -
Pic 1 - she confidently negotiates the deep water
Pic 2 -she does that.....stops in the shallower water and tells me to come fetch the bike
Pic 3 - I'm a little moerig and 'jaag' her bike out
Pic 4 - result - dripping wet. pouring the water out of my glove  :lol8:
There is a crack in everything
that is how the light gets in
