I took my bike to COR in Durban and all he said was what are the km's, and proceeded to walk away, i asked if he was going to check anything and he replied "you rode it here didn't you".
OK i have to say the bike was super clean and he probably took that into consideration.
Ride it like you stole it!!!

Took my small boat trailer for a COR in George.  Holy moly!  He must have spend 45 minutes checking it.  Almost shook the boat of the trailer with their wheel bearing checker thing.  It failed because one piece of yellow reflective tape, about 40cm had been cut to about 45mm which is under the required 50mm and the number plate light wasn't working.  Vark!  One of the disadvantages of staying in an area where stuff work.   >:D
