En toe ons wil ry wil die XT nie start nie. Nou waar begin jy soek aan 'n XT vir 'n fout. Hulle breek mos nie. Ek vat toe maar hier en daar aan die drade, want hy kry petrol en uiteindelik start hy. Ons vind toe die plug cap het losgekom van die plug af. Hoe gebeur dit  :eek7:

Kom toe uiteindelik na donker by die huis. Lang dag.

Gerrard, what's the difference between the Guzzi and the 1150's and 1200's you had?

Will you put it all on newer tech? Or could the different boxer degreed pistons also play a part?

Its difficult to compare. They are very different bikes. It starts with the Guzzi is light and feels like a roaster, but tours like a softroader. Smooth on gravel and does not know about marbles.

The 1150 is a tractor and has its purpose in life... to pull a sidecar  :biggrin:  As a bike the Guzzi is a far superior DP bike, although despite the electronics, it is still very basic.

You tell me to choose a bike, I'll take the Guzzi.

The 1200 is a piece of shit. Don't want one if you give it to me  :lol8:

Afhangend wat jy koop so tussen R220k en R250k. Dis nou nuut. As dit die bike vir jou is, is dit elke sent werd. As jy my paar maande terug gevra het sou ek nie so gesÍ het nie.

Ek sou gedink het dis Pokken mal  :lol8:

Ek dink as hulle so vier of vyf jaar oud is sal die prys baie sak. Ek twyfel of ouens hulle as primÍre adventure/toer bikes sal koop. So kilo's sal laag bly.

Self het ek 'n ander grondpad bike so hy sal nie kilo's jaag soos bv op my 1150adv nie.
