Dit is juis die probleem met die moderne verbruiker.
Dit is makliker om te bitch, as om jou hande vuil te maak.
Dit is makliker om probleme te deflekteer, as om eienaarskap te vat en jou fiets te kan verstaan en regmaak.
Moderne elektronika op die fietse is minder `n probleem as die ronde hand brigade wat eerder `n foon optel en bel vir bystand.
Ewe skielik is n tjoep tyres nou nie meer goed genoeg nie...
Dit is wat gebeur as jou ma jou tushie afvee tot jy in graad 9 is..... :peepwall:

Even with all the issues and problems (that we havent seen much of in our Cunttree) the 790 R is a sexy bitch that gives you a hard-on just by sitting on the bike. No other bike does that. Yes your mistress will give you more shit than your wife but who cares if the sex is amazing. And that is the purpose of a mistress, sex. If you like sitting at home with your newspaper and slippers in front of the fire drinking tea with your wife, buy a BMW.  :biggrin:

Ek vermoed Noneking gaan nie eers sy tyd mors om hier kommentaar te lewer nie.  Ironies dat terwyl almal hier praat oor hoe sleg en onbetroubaar die bike is, is hy uit op sy bike en skryf RR’s vir ons vermaak.  Inderdaad ‘n terrible bike, of hoe?  :pot:

Dis omdat dit winter in daardie kak plek is. McDonald's vreet en rekenaar is al wat daar is om te doen..

All bikes have their gremlins... take the 1150ADV. Great bike, but that glue mark on the seat is just terrible. And BMW refused to do a recall on it.

HD is a very reliable motorcycle brand.  And Indian.  They fall just below the Japanese MFG's and score higher than both KTM and BMW.

Perhaps you will understand with some picture storytelling.  Maybe that will work for you and other safrican mountainbillies.

HD had a terrible reliability record, to such an extent even that a 'recall' was almost a given.
Oh, genuinely serious recalls, like having forgotten to drill an oil gallery (new engine...) or in my case (yes, I worked on them) a loooong machining shaving curl inside the oiltank blocking the exhaust hole, which (of course, duh) caused the oilpressure to be nigh on nil during the PFD.
Yeah, nice tractors they are, but I'll never get old enough for one.

And thank you for calling me Safrican, I finally have deserved it it seems - Thank you, proud of it too!  :thumleft:
But, eh, at least I do some mountainous stuff, quite like a billy goat even at times, contrary to you on that old behemoth which will try to kill you on your own lawn due to its "magnificent" attempt to impersonate some form of ABS.
Oh, the ABS on the front wheel only ('offroad') of the 790 is absolutely stunningly effective, it has saved me a few times from a wipeout already but you've not mentioned this yet....... jealousy perhaps?
If so that makes you nasty, just saying  ;)

But carry on with the pollution Oilslick, don't let my boertjiecomments hamper you in any way!

No, he's on forums badmouthing irrelevant nonsense in a vain attempt to try to get the resale value of 790's down so he will be able to afford one.
But don't blame him too hard, he owns an old classic hence he must be an old codger secretly wishing he could ride offroad, kinda pining for the fjords  ;)
