R6K, but remember, he only did the spray job, the panels and goodies was taken of by die mechanics who repaired the clutch.  So no labor there.

Nogal nie, maar onthou, jy is effe groter as ek hoor.   :patch: :lol8:

Nee Woody, dit pla my nie, wat ek wel agtergekom het, as ek alleen ry dan sit ek gemaklik want ek sit heel terug in die seat.  As vroutjie opklim dan leen ek effe voorentoe, dan sit ek effe ongemaklik om lang ritte te doen.  Toe skuif ek die topbox terug op sy verstellings, dis beter maar nog nie reg nie.  Nou het ek die hele agtersitplek se rugstut afgehaal en ons maak 'n storie daar wat ek later gaan plaas.  :biggrin:   Nou sit ek waar ek moet, so nou baie gemaklik.   :thumleft:

Sell the GS, get a 250 or 300, you will become a riding god,  :biggrin:  and with the change buy a RT, you will not regret.   :deal:

Definitely better in Beemer Blue, I knew you would like it once it starts rolling, but yes, heavy enough that it needs that reverse gear.

Make sure to change all the brake lines to Spiegler when next in for a service.

Lekker travels!

Hoe werk dit nou met die pampiere? As jy hernu sit jy net die kleur in as blou?
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Dis sover ek dit het, aangesien daar nerens op die logboek of lisensie disk enige aanduiding van kleur is nie, slegs by hul rekords by verkeer.  Die enjin nr, chassis nr ens stem ooreen met die papiere.
