Maar soos ek verstaan was daar probleme met die throttle ook! Dit het blykbaar bly vashak!  :lol8:

NK, hoeveel ure/km het jou bike gedoen daar, en het jy die tc, mapping, abs gebruik, wat dink jy daavan? Of het jy net die varkie se oor gedraai en bogger die res!..

Bike is terug by die huis en ek kan bevestig ek het net so oor die 35 ure gedoen op die trip.

Poo :(
And yes bike had about 150 ish hours, can't remember exactly. 156 or round there. Fuel pump is a shitty one. I am thinking of taking spare aftermarket pump for my 701 for when we do our big trip, supposedly those have a reputation of packing up. It sucks that something like that can break at random and just leave you completely stranded. I think you must have a look at aftermarket options too Dwerg, BMW's original parts are hugely expensive. They wanted to rip me R3000k just for a battery.... There was a guy who broke up his bike for spares some time ago, I'll see if I can find the details for you.

Thanks Ive already ordered a pump from Fuel Performance in East London. Should arrive today. Also managed to find a speedo for a good price. I did contact the guy who was breaking that speed brain but he couldnt help

I have two monitors at work and make no secret about the fact that one is used for work while the other for personal as I am a pro at multi-tasking.

I am however very honest when I say I have been pretty much useless for the past two days reading through every line of this report and soaking up the detail of each and every photo while trying to deflect any work that comes my way.

Thank you ever so much for the report @Noneking and all the others who have contributed.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. T. E. Lawrence
