A problem other than the excessive sag with the 250L Rally was the valving. It was very bouncy with almost no rebound. I just had visions of that watching this heavy weight. It's just a casual observation. Looking forward to riding it.

Took it as a casual remark bud.
Unfortunately bigger guys will have to do a spring upgrade on these bikes as the average rider weighs 70kg according to the Japs. I do however think the 300’s suspension is better than it was on the 250

I think it is all over a problem, all new bikes are designed not taking the average WD in consideration.   :eek7:   :lol8: :peepwall: :pot:

Hahahaha 70kg... I'll have to go on a serious diet then. I'm 120kg (in the shade). I'd like to go sit on one and see exactly.

Hoe sal die fiets werk as n plaasfiets?
My ou CRF230 is my regterhand. Hy ry heeldag oor woeste terrein. Hy moan nie. Hy raak nie warm nie.  Hy start net en gaan.

Hoe sal die fietsie vaar?
Of gaan hy dalk warm raak?

Ek het die bike gery, en ook 'n opgedolly-de CRF 230 (BBR Pyp, heads so bietjie ge-polish ens.) gery. Die bike met EFI en al, gaan vir jou dieselfde en meer vermoee gee oor rower terrain.

Hy is waterverkoel, en het 'n fan ook, wat wel aankom toe ek 1ste rat teen 'n rots koppie uit is, en dit was 'n warm dag in die Cederberg kant van die Bokkeveld.

Ek het daarvan geskryf (maar in Ingils, laat weet as jy nie verstaan nie, ek kan dit beter in Afrikaans se.)

So any news on the 300L?

Hoe many are coming to SA, someone told me 50?
Is that just the first batch and not the only I hope?
I am definitely thinking of getting me one of these.
