Losper, net n vra, jammer as dit hiri fred biki hijack...
Ek besit n 500 en like die ding, en hy het n 12L tenk op. Biki korter gearing op so hy's lekker ook in die stadige goed.
Ek het ook n 300 tpi (met nog n std tenk), en gebruik die fiets vir tegniese goed hoofsakelik.
Jou trips lyk meer die laaste (geen idee van die - lang? - liasons nie), en dan is ek handiger op die 300 as op die 500 (ek kan beter op hom staan ook).
Ek kan n groter tenk op die ding sit, en omdat hy gewone petrol neem sou dit dalk n goeie bike maak vir jou tipe trips, vir my dalk beter?
Ek vra, sal graag jou mening hoor hieromtrent!  :thumleft:
BuRP,  'n 2 stroke sal werk vir hierdie Richtersveld trip maar jy gaan meer gemaklik wees op 'n 4 stroke agv die liason stukke.

Die trips wat ek in Clarens doen is meer geskik vir 2 strokes aloewel ek en my "crew" altyd ons 500's met groot tenks vir al hierdie trips gebruik. http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=258991.msg4657737#msg4657737

Perfect place for the 500  O0

Pity a flight ticket remains pricey to ZA.

Losper, net n vra, jammer as dit hiri fred biki hijack...

Ek besit n 500 en like die ding, en hy het n 12L tenk op. Biki korter gearing op so hy's lekker ook in die stadige goed.


Siende dat jy my nie saamvra nie, wou ek eers nie my mening lug om jou te help nie, al ken ek die area goed.....maar ek sal maar: Die 500 (volgens my) is aboluut ideaal

Beserker, jy is reg. Die 500 is net 'n plesier in die Richtersveld.
Ons ry al jare lank met ons groot adv bikes in die Richtersveld en hierdie keer het ons met die 500's gegaan. Dit was 'n moerse "jol" gewees en met die 500 kon ons plekke sien wat min ander mense al van tevore gesien het. :thumleft:

Hi Losper, Hierdie lyk na n awesome trip. Hoe gaan die ooslaap werk? Ry elke ou sy slaapgoed en kos saam of beplan jy iets anders?
Dit lyk my ek sal maar my 690 moet ruil vir n 500.
