Aai, the D707 looks good!

I like the speedo set independently below the TFT TV screen.

Damn ... this really looks good! Well done to all of you.

Baie mooi videos. Namibia pronk soos altyd op sy heel mooiste. Glo die woestyn het die 'cocky' fransman bietjie nederig gemaak.
Honda het baie moeite gemaak met die electronics op die fietse. Die front end en ligte lyk baie goed.

Weet nie wie het op ligging besluit maar Namibie is darem maar net een van die bestes, indien nie die heel beste. 

Wel gedaan aan almal, dis n indrukwekkende produksie en lekker om te sien ons plaaslike manne is gebruik om die bikes te ry  :thumleft:

@ Hardy - Jammer jy kon nie jou frustrasie op die Fransman uithaal maar reken dit maak jou die beter persoon.

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

@Kobus Myburgh  en @Hardy de Kock  nou waar is daardie deel van die oscar-poging-wiel-rol-foto-skiet ?
Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

So, Oom Kobus; your thoughts on the Adventure Sport asb. Did you get to ride it? What do you think of all the electronics? Is that bash plate strong enough ... and its mountings? DCT or the usual usual? What about those lekker tubeless rims?

Keen to hear your evaluation.
