the 189 is without fuel only. Coolant and oil weighed in

Correct - Thus ďReady to raceĒ and only needing to add fuel.

Fork oil, battery fluid, tubes not relevant as it seems to be tubeliss are all according to spec on the 790

@GeVarlik het Maandag sy 850 gekry. Ek kon net vat en kyk maar almal wat hom gery het sÍ is dat dit groot stappie vorentoe is van die 800 af in rit en bou gehalte

Dis net daai R199990.00 wat my bang maak, maar ek het gister gehoor die 790R launch teen R185000.00
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

As jy die keyless, TFT, elektroniese suspensie, quick shifter, cruise control, GPS cradle, heated grips, alles standaard op die GS dan begin dinge al amper sin maak. Maar ja die goed raak duur

Nog R25000.00 en jy kan n 1290R koop, how scary does it make that price sound now?

Jy nee kyk dis waarhied. En 'n 1090R is goedkoper as 'n 850. Ek like die nuwe 690 maar hy gaan ook seker 'n plaas se prys kos

Now if Honda could just supersize the engine  :thumleft:

Read reviews of the new CB300R - if they could make it light and pull like that bike it would be amazing. Amazing.

XSR 700 tribute to the XT500

Take a close look at this bike, and tell me what does it have to present itself as a "tribute" to the XT500??

Nothing on it even reminds me of anything on an XT500.

And the Niken........... :eek7: :eek7: Skerpioen, kreef, wat ook al......baie pootjies en n dun agterlyf. :imaposer:

The girl reminds me more of my old XT
