Ai tog, ja dis seker waar Jean.
Ek mag darem seker so nou en dan ‘n Saterdag afkry en as dinge mooi in plek is, moet die shop seker ook vir ‘n week of wat sonder my kan klaarkom. Indien nie, het ek my mense swak geleer.

Hel, ek wil nie verniet werk soos wat ek nou werk nie. “Like what you do now, so that you can do what you like later on.”  8)

Ons moet verseker so gou moontlik weer ‘n worsie gaan braai… :ricky:

Daai is nou n mooi een!! Geluk!!

Eks sommer jaloers, ek sit al met n konstante jeuk hier. Mis my 1190 baie.


As ek mag...daar is ouens wat baie tough is en praat van sport mode op grondpad...dit werk nie. Jy kan nie tegnies ry nie en jy kan ook nie gewig verplaas met n 'oh shit' oomblik nie, hy spin net. Ry eerder met die nanny aids af maar in street mode. (offroad mode met net 2/3 van sy krag is hy wel al klaar vinniger as 990). Mens ry dan lekker en so nou en dan wil jy bietjie gat uit gooi en meer gee dan is daar nog...en dan besef jy gewoonlik daar is nog vrek baie poeiers.
Ek het nou nog nie aangepas op die 990 nie, sodra ek bietjie wil rooi sien en die keel oop maak dan slaan ek klaar limiter, dan gee hy hoekal klaar als.

Geniet

Thanks to all for the good wishes. This is indeed a dream bike, for me.
Yesterday, a friend and myself took a short ride, about 120 odd km, just to get out. He took his small gas braai and a few beers and I took a roll of home made boerewors and a few buns.

It was quite windy, but we found shelter next to a wool shed at a beautiful farmstead. Had a braai and a couple of beers and then returned home. Yesterday made me realise how much I missed my bike and these short, but very rewarding day rides.

I had to meet him at Gariep Dam and I ran a bit late, so I took the N1 from my farm, to get to Gariep as quick as possible. The N1 was quite busy, with up to 5 trucks in a row, driving so close to each other that there is no other option, but to pass them all in one go.
And that’s what I did. However, catching a glimpse of the speedo at one stage, the 1190 was well on its way to 200 km/h! I nearly shat myself and realised that this must be what I was warned about. The bike is indeed very powerful and fast, but it does it in such a way that you don’t really notice it.
I never ride this fast and got quite a wake-up call. I think yesterday was the first time ever that I got off my bike with a slight tremble…

We rode a short section of jeep track and I was very impressed by the way the 1190 handles. It takes everything in its stride and it’s awesome on the open gravel roads. Suspension is very good and it’s a real pleasure to ride and very easy to throw from side to side to avoid the odd pot hole, etc.
I’m not a fan of top boxes, or hard panniers, for that matter, but I must confess, for a trip like yesterday, having to carry stuff to braai, etc, the top box came in really handy.

what year model 1190 is that?

Ek is juis kwaad vir my vrou, sy het my n onnodige skewe kyk gegee en die bank slaap okay. So jy laat my nou ernstig weer groot bike oorweeg hier

Dis 'n 2015 model. Regtig 'n lekker skoeter m0lt3n. :thumleft:
Ek mis nog steeds my 990 - seker omdat ek hierdie ou nog gewoond moet raak. :)
