I bought a 500 and needed to give it a run in. JonW  offered to take me on a ride. I cant believe how this bike can climb hills. Don't ask me for the area because we went up and down so many hills i lost count of where we were. It was outside Richmond  KZN

That looks good.  Maybe next time I go visit that area I need to hook up the trailer, bring the bike and ask you guys to show me around.

Thanks Ian

Really nice to see IanB gelling so well with his new 500.

Don't think I've ever heard him rave so much about a bike before.

A few pics:

How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Let me know when that is and I'll join the you's!
Been wanting to join JonW since his 650R days but haven't followed this up, and now IanB has joined his lot..... unfair, must make a plan - and, if Kapenare come up I may as well venture a bit West hmm?
