Dont rip the lifan pal Sweetness did Baviaans as a first trip after about 300ks on hers. Shes still hooked on bikes. Glad you did that trip.

Not ripping the Lifan by any means... that bike gave me some of the best fun I'd had in ages. If it hadn't been stolen I'd have taken it to George on my bakkie, and done a lot of this trip on it. On one ride I did on it up here it opened a few eyes, and was cause for more than one or two comments, of the complimentary kind. The only thing I had against it was the uncomfortable seat; like riding a telephone pole.

I was really upset to have lost it; but then again, things happen for a reason,, and the outcome was my Transalp.
