Geen verkeer vanoggend op Nieu Bethesda nie

Jy lyk goed op die fiets Johan.  :thumleft:  Baie geluk en ek hoop jy gaan hom baie geniet.

Dankie Mnr Kobus, jou raad het my baie gehelp om te besluit.  Ek dink ek het reg gekoop, in die paar kilometer wat ek hom gery het geniet ek hom baie.  Veral die DCT waaroor ek nogal verbaasd is.  Ek het my twyfellinge gehad.  :biggrin:

Veels geluk met die nuwe skoeter Dorsland! Mag jy baie veilige myle hê! Dalk loop ons mekaar eendag raak daar op Abrahamskraal!!

Nou net met haar gepraat, hulle het plaas toe getrek vir die grendeltydperk en hul kinders van Pretoria is ook daar.   :-\

Ek dink aan 'n Plan B.  ;D

Dankie Matewis.  :thumleft:  Ek het vanoggend vir Hestie gebel, wil die week probeer bietjie wegkom.  Geen antwoord nie, sal later weer probeer.  Ek kan nie sien dat daar 'n probleem kan wees alleen in daai huisie daar agter nie?

Hahahah wou nou net se Helane en Kobus is daar met die kids vir die tyd. Hulle het hulle gaan afsonder op die plaas!

Baie geluk Dorsland, ek hoop jy gaan daai Honda net so baie geniet soos wat ek myne geniet!

Sien uit om saam met jou te ry Oktober!

Tip # 1: one of the annoying things is the ABS & TC settings resets itself to default if you turn the bike off ... but does not do so if you stop for a real short time and cut the engine by putting the side stand out. But then the headlight stays on so just for a real short stop.

Tip # 2: the accessory 12v plug (if you have one) only has a 10amp fuse and will not power a tyre pump for more than 60 seconds. To replace the fuse, it's behind the Right hand side front fairing ... tricky to remove so Google it first.

Tip # 3: Honda Tygerberg make a lekker anti-scratch knee pad kit for the indents on the tank. Bell hulle en vra mooi.

Thanks for those tips Ian. I do have a power socket but would probably only use it for charging a phone. Or jump starting my bike if the battery was flat.

I’m definitely going to call for those tank pads. Have you got a pic of yours you could post here?  I think I did see them somewhere on your bike but cannot recall which thread.

Dankie aan Hannes (XRRX) ... hy het die pads vir my gekry

Interesting. I have not seen those before, would look good if you can get them in white ...?

Did you contact Tygerberg?

Daai skewe handvatsels was toe net die "bar raisers" se rubber monteringspunte wat effe keef was.  Als nou weer doodreg.

Ook Sommer my Enduristan gereedskapsakkie agter gemonteer en my Givi tenksakkie.  More ry ek bietjie Karoogrondpaaie met hom.  :biggrin:

Probeer bietjie hierdie skerm. Jy kan die boonste gedeelte afhaal as jy wil - dan is hy steeds groter as die OEM skerm, maar die kombinasie haal al die wind van jou skouers en helmet af.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

Dankie @Jacobsroodt , ek het die hoër skerm vir hom maar hy belemmer my sig van die grondpad.  Op teer is hy baie lekker.  :thumleft:
