Thanks, they are forever like that. Don't do anything without the other.

The camber slows the ginger down. I fixed it twice over the weekend, but it happens as he just drives over everything.  :imaposer:

I remember someone else had a rim crack like that, but not a full failure also on a 660, maybe Grim?  :thumleft:

That's a proper "boer maak n plan".... Well done!

It seems that the 660 Yammie rims are soft?
I recall Roger Doger's rim getting smilies after we both klapped a lurker on one of the freestate bashes... The DID rim on the Transalp was fine.  ::)

a couple of random pics - I wasn't bothered with taking photos, way too much fun to be had!

1. Shrekkie and I enjoying the view over the Vaal between Leeudoringstad and Bothaville.

2. 40 years ago I did my first year of diensplig here...
I remember Shrek on the front of your XT660Z at the NW  Bash in about 2011 or so. I may have a pic of it here somewhere.
