Dankie Dwerg. Dis n fantastiese RR en geniet dit vreeslik baie. Die video van Bastervoetpas is ongelooflik. Jy laat dit so maklik lyk - jy ry soos n Pro!
Well done! Groete

Ag dankie man! Dit het nie so maklik gevoel toe ek daar was nie  :lol8:

Lekker RR

Is the rear shock also non adjustable? Rebound and Compression?

Rear shock is only adjustable for preload

And it doesn't have a remote adjuster. C spanner adjustment.

Lekker man, I enjoyed your RR  :thumleft: Seems the non - R  790 is a very competent all rounder.

Lekker @Dwerg... :thumleft:

Daai kort-been sindroom van jou het my lekker laat lag. First world problems op daai mooi 790 van jou. (Ek sÍ mooi, want die fokken ding begin op my groei)

Dan, dankie vir die heads-up oor Himeville Arms. Ek en my Pa het gedink om daar te gaan oorbly, maar nou lyk dit my ons sal n tweede aand by ou @Leon bruigom moet gaan bly.

Lekker RR

Lekker RR

Kyk as dit goedkoper was het ek dalk nie eers gekla nie en ek was dalk net in 'n slegte bui met daai bash babelas. Maar as jy my 700 rand gaan charge in 'n klein dorpie verwag ek iets goed en op die minste goeie diens. En as ek moet raai sou ek sÍ moet ook nie beter verwag by Underberg Inn nie.

Ek het met iemand oor dit gesels en hulle sÍ waar ek gebly het wsa die backpackers gedeelte. Blykbaar is die hotel baie beter maar dis in die omgewing van 1000 rand per aand.

The bike can feel very harsh and deflect off objects, generally a hand full when you ride slowly on rough stuff. But at the same time if you attack obstacles itís great.

This reminded me of this guy's review (05:00 - 06:10).



Lekker Dwerg, Enjoyed that.  :thumleft:

Btw... wat was die doose by Himeville Arms se probleem?  >:D

Dankie vir die RR Dwerg! Ek het lekker gelees. Het net bietjie jammer gevoel vir jou met die gebrek aan slaap en die hangover na Saterdagaand. Maar die Bash was epies en jou rit het mooi paaie ingesluit!

Ek sien die Nat Bash maak klaar oppi Sondagoggend. Maar dan is daar vakansiedag die Dinsdag, so daar is kans vir lekker ry die Sondag en Maandag. Die manne wat lekker ry-paaie ken in die Vrystaat moet biki vertel...

Nice Midget en ek het nou lekker gelag vir jou helmet commentary. Laat my dink aan daai stukkie toe ons amper in die donker op pad na Lake Letsie toe was. Dink die commentary was ietwat dieselfde en ek was nogal 'n entjie van jou af!!  >:D :biggrin:

Mens kan duidelik sien op die laaaste video jy het jou mojo weer gevind. :3some:

Goeie werk en ek is bly jy geniet jou fiets.
