Hardy, stock trim en n lekker warm somersdag, wat kan nie die outjie gemaklik hol heel dag lank?

Altie

As a kid I was properly dewormed and weigh around 110kg as mentioned.I rode the 300 for about 50km today in our quarry, on the open road (gravel) and I also did a 10km stint on tar.
This bike does 120km easily on the open road and it will surprise many riders in the technical stuff.

What I like:

- The first three gears makes mincemeat of climbing, slow speed tech riding, and quick pull away's.
- The rest of the gears feels as if it keeps on delivering and just when you think "ok surely, this must be it", it keeps on going.
- The engine does not stress at all. You get the idea that if re-fueling whilst riding was possible - the bike would just keep on going forever.
- Service intervals of 12000km
- Tyres (they got it right this time) I like them a lot. 
- Big footpegs
- The seat is fantasic. - VERY comfortable
- The exhaust sounds very healthy - unlike the 250 that sounded like an asthma sufferer over the phone.
- The suspension front and rear is much better than the 250 - VERY MUCH BETTER
- The seat height is perfect - my 1,96 frame sat comfortably, and so did my 1,72 plaintiff.
- It feels very light and nimble - really it does.
- The cockpit is practical and easy to read whilst riding.
- The ABS that can be switched off is a thing of beauty.
- Brakes is really good.

What I don't like:
-The handlebar looks cheap - a R650 fix.
- The headlight and indicators would have been nice in LED

Aaaah carp I was just about to ask about the seat height. But if you guys fit on it comfortably, I'm probably too short. ::)

If adjusted the right way, it will fit you just fine.

Ets - I spoke to them and they are going to look for something that will be able to handle your weight class. They reckon mouses will be a risk.
