Sweet man,uhh girl! :wink:

Many congrats are in order! Nice to pull out a new, shiny bike! (I think and I am a bit "jealous")

Hope you have lotsa fun on her/him. :P

Enjoy the shiny bike for the moment. It will be the personal goal of the Capies Adv. members to help you get her nice and dirty A.S.A.P! :P

Duffie, get your bike in order and do your bit my friend!

Once again congrats! :salute:

Awesome Mango!
A gween one wiff a givi box.

Enjoy the standard tyres, they are better than most people give credit.

Do an early oil and filter change like Hein suggests, the first few km has the bike settling into its groove, use the cheapest normal oil you can find, let the thing wear where it needs too.


Congrats on a brand new bike!  Many trouble free km.

Thanks guys....Will do the oil bit this weekend....

I tidied up the garage specially   :D

I think my main concern is keeping this bike rust free...Loads of
DWF is in order...Not going to worry too much about keeping it
scratch free, otherwise I will never go offroad.

Mango, nice one!
Looks better in green , dont you think?
Stay on the green, ride in the ruff, beware of the bogeys and dont get a hole in one! And may the birdies not leave any deposits!

Congratulations fellow KLRista! I'm glad you stayed true to the breed, but of course you know it is common cause that the red ones are still faster.

May you have many, many problem free kilometres on the Frog. Wanna join up with Lito's jol this weekend so that we can all have a closer look?
