Got some spiff crashbar pouches from Flying Brick today.
Fark knows what I'll put innit though.

Het jy darem veilig by die huis gekom vandag?

Jy moet eintlik saam Allan Eye ry, hy kan jou shaves op sy gopro afneem.

Het vanmiddag verby jou gedraf daar by 3de Laan. Daai fiets is bitter mooi.

Die crashbar  bags is baie handig. Vir n hoed en kos byderhand hou.
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies

Hi DirtRebel
Could not help but noticed that you have, what appears to be a Sargent rider seat on your bike, know they are super comfortable because I have a set on my oilhead, was just wondering whether it also makes a difference on the 1250? In every road test that I have seen so far, the testers seem to rave about the comfort of the standard seat

Love that seat.
The std on the 1250 is also good, but I prefer the Sargent. Used it on my 1200LC and transferred it to the new bike.

Manic logic- bike is lower when on the rear wheel only (and I don't mean it in a derogatory manner)

Can anyone tell me, why is there 2 buttons on the 1250 keys you can press, yet nothing happens?
Its obvious  they are dummies, but why?

Maybe for a alarm that can be fitted  extra or what?

seeing some reports that the suspension is actually a big improvement on the previous, completely new supplier as well? Its not being marketed much though, and not a lot of comments in this thread wrt it either, any opinions?
I would specifically like to know how it handles a bad corrugation dirt road...
