Filled the tank again yesterday after Sunday's 147km trip between the game farms.
I kept the odo speed between 60 and 80km/h so as not to scare the animals away.
Consumption according to fuelly.com = 38.1km/l (best tank yet since I purchased the bike) and I was not even trying to see how frugal this bike can be.

My beste gister gekry, 30.34km/l.   :patch:  Ek glo nie ek sal ooit 33km/l haal nie, wat nog te se van 38.   :eek7:

My gewig (72kg) het seker ook 'n positiewe invloed op die brandstofverbruik   :deal:

Volgens die weervoorspelling gaan dit koeler wees van more af.
Ek het laatmiddag 'n draai gaan ry en oppad kon ek voel daar is 'n koue wind wat opgesteek het
'n Grys wolkbank was sigbaar in die rigting van Makhado en oppad in ons rigting
Hoop die wolke bring reen

More is glo 18C by ons terwyl dit die afgelope week elke dag oor die 30C was

Spot sommer, daai gewig sal 'n merkbare verskil maak.  Ek het laas toe ek 19 jaar oud was daai gewig geweeg, staan nou 'n volle 100kg, bewys dat ek goed ontwurm is.   :biggrin:

Left home this morning to go for a ride but had no destination in mind.
I got onto a dirt road and it turned out to be quite a nice ride.
I came upon this deserted cattle farm.
It must have been quite a nice place once upon a time (even had a guard hut at the gate) but now nature is starting to claim it back.

Ek wonder myself.
Ek wou gaan rondkyk het maar omdat ek alleen was (en vir niemand gese het waar ek gaan rondry nie), het ek besluit veiligheid kom eerste en toe maar eerder verder gery.

Today was a scorcher (temp 32C) so I waited until 16:00 before I got on the bike for a ride.
Took the dirt road towards Dendron and returned at 17:20 (very nice 110km trip)

Some nice dark rain clouds were visible towards the North, on my return trip

I've had the bike now for four months and clocked up around 2500km of which the majority kms were gravel travel.
The bike was purchased without handguards and I have always been worried when riding dirt that I might damage/break a clutch or front brake lever in a fall.
This week I purchased a pair of handguards from Startline (with the assistance of a fellow WD) and the plastics matched the red plastics of my bike perfectly.
The package arrived earlier today and I immediately started with the fitment.
After a few adjustments of the guards in the bench vice, the fitment was done and I think it looks good.  :ricky:
A special thanks to @dieseldawie for his assistance.   :thumleft:

@Grunder , I know you were also looking for handguards. These will do the job on your Tornado and it is really not a difficult fitment.
