you can forget about doing that 1st gear trick on my XRR. You can also forget about starting it with your hand. It starts 1st kick, maar hy wil geskop wees.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

There's something seriously wrong with the compression on that bike. My old XT could drag a tyre in second when push starting!! And that oke would be in traction if he tried to start mine with his hand!!  :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

The guy who serviced my XR500 at Waynes wicked rides started it from cold with his hand just to show me how easy it was.
As I remember he was the kind of guy who would only need to hit you once as well.
Where are my shorts??

Shit I know exactly where the video was shot...

Durban okes are a breed apart...
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
