Er. Ma. WEEERRRRDD!! How on earth do you ever get it over your heart to ride that thing, and tarnish it with dust even on tar?!!  :drif: :drif: :drif: :drif:

That is a thing of beauty indeed. WELL. DONE.

Faaaark steaks ... :drif: :drif: :drif:

Hi LR. Ek het dit by Dynojet gekry in JHB. Dynojet.co.za. Kyk net, vir die DRZ400SM doen hulle 2 kits. Stage one vir standaard airbox en stage 2 omdat ek die 3x3 duim gat im die airbox gesny het.  :thumleft:

Ek het gisteraand weer die bike gery en uit die 15 bikes wat ek al besit is die SM my gustelling ooit. N lekker windgat kinderlike oomblik gehaad, verby 2 pragtige meisies gery, gelukkig in 2de rat toe gee ek vet en lig die voorwiel lekker hoog op :thumleft: :thumleft: dit het my week gemaak O0 O0

 .... UPDATE....

Sundays are the absolute best. I have some time today so just a small update.

 

The bike is running like a beast and still the best symphony of sound ever produced.

 

I came from work the other day and realised my rear brake is a bit wonky.

It took a deep press to get the bike to brake. It would take very deep down and then it would lock up. I inspected it when I got home and found the master cylinder reservoir completely buckled and without fluid.

 

The first thing that popped into my head was the new shiny heat gun I used to apply the decals on my KTM.

 I got out the vice grip then heated it good and proper. I softened it quite a bit and used the vice to hold it in its original shape.

 

While held in shape I let it cool down completely. It still took 2 or 3 runs to get it to a shape I'm very happy with.   :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

 Payday has landed so I invested in a new road lid.

 

I decided on the Airoh Valor. Must be the cheapest 5/5 SHARP rated helmet

 The DRZ has been treating me wholesomely! Been riding the SM more and with hard handed testing in the back roads it gave me 19.5KM/L

I went to go and visit my sis and brother in law as they bought their first house. Short vid I made from the commute. Very much short shifting and trying very hard not to get a ticket I can't afford. The city is full of speed cameras

Aaaaaargghhh :drif:

As jy nou klaar gefarkle is aan hierdie pragtige monster van jou, kan ek nie my DR650 by jou kom parkeer nie? Ek is seker jou oog vir detail gaan 'n paar foutjies vang, en jou OCD gaan jou aanhits om dit reg te maak :imaposer:

Dit lyk stunning, baie mooi gedaan :thumleft:
