Dankie vir die deel.  Ek wens ek het jou ry-ondervinding gehad, maar hopenlik sal ek daar kom. :thumleft:

Plesier :thumleft:

Ek het nie baie ry-ondervinding nie - dis hoekom ek nog so dikwels val. Het hierdie naweek weer vir my 'n plasie gekoop op Fall Down Hill ::)

Ek dink altesaam ry ek nou al so 2 jaar en 'n paar maande, en dis maar 'n dagrit hier en 'n naweekrit daar. Ek gaan probeer om meer dagritte te doen hierdie jaar, en ek gaan verseker 'n paar kursusse doen, anders gaan my enkels dit nie hou nie :o Funduro's is ook deel van die PVA >:D

Klim maar net op jou bike en ry :ricky: (maar hopelik nie 'n 1200GS nie... :eek: )

Die Karretjie is aan 'n GSA1200 vas, maar ek het onlangs 'n Honda CRF 250L (en Louis 'n Rally) aangeskaf waarmee ons nou woes oefen vir die 'n nice adventure ride saam met Hardy.   :biggrin:

Dan gaan jy my verseker verbysteek met die ry-ondervinding! Ek het net gehou tot dag 4 van daardie adventure :lol8: :ricky:

Nice RR once again Ri, bike problem not in engine (its a BMW) wheel bearings I think or shaft bearing, taking it in tomorrow. I had it in a workshop the week before xmas and they replaced the front pads said that was the problem. Not so and what pissed me off was they did not even ride the bike after their repair. They have lost a potential customer so it's back to Lynne Schroeder.

Thanks for the opportunity to ride along Ri, even if it is via photos and the RR.  :biggrin:

Rattle on the front wheel?

Could be the disks fastening floating bolts that are worn. Common problem with AC models! Irritating noise. Mate of mine had that issue! Said it drove him mad!

Awesome RR Ri! Enjoyed reading it and loved the pics. Brought back memories. Have done quite a few of those roads over the years on 4-5 day trips from EC via Baviaans and Die Hell etc.

Thanks for sharing!

Remember there are 3 types of bikers:

Those who have not fallen but still will
Those who have fallen
And those who will fall again!

Glad to see we both type 3!
Go Big!

Go Home!!!!

So the noise according to the experts turned out to be the new back tyre that was fitted.  ::)
