Dear Father Bobnob, it's been a year since my last confession............

I ride a DR which pretty much mean I do not come to confession often. Sorry for that.

Went to a hypnotist to do some sessions of memory regression and can now happily report as follows -

- IMS plastic tank got a crack. Fixed it
- Picked up a few smiley's. Moered them flat again
- Took a dive - scratched hand guard and front mudguard plastics. Heat gun to the rescue.

That's it. Will probably have to confess more often when I sell my DR and buy another bike.

 :imaposer:

how did you fix the crack in the plastic tank ???

Being made of some sort of plastic (I forget the name), everyone said that it was impossible to plastic weld and that it was basically un-repairable.

Problem is that I am a poor sod and can not just replace.

So what to do with something that is "mission impossible"? Took it to Runner and got it back a few days later - fixed. Have not leaked a drop since.

Do not know exactly what he did but considering that I use my bike almost exclusively for dirt riding, the repair is very solid :thumleft:

Right up there with those amazing fixes such as the lego block fairing fix which you once helped me with. Still owe you a beer for that one :thumleft:

I"m with Bobnob on this one. My dear friend has a motorbike with 130 000kms clocked. Just the other day I heard him telling someone
about these "trouble-free" kms, yet his gearbox alone has been overhauled 3 times!! He still has parts of a engine at home because he used the gearbox parts in his bike. You can find even more of this misguided loyalty in the car world.
From this type of owner you will never get the true picture of a brand"s reliability.
Then there is the owner of the 2007 GSX-R 1000 with just over 10 000 kms on, revving the engine@ 12000rpm for minutes at a time at
last year"s Buff.! Will this soul tell the next buyer about this horrendous abuse? I wonder.
Confession; I had to replace my XT500"s rear shocks[2] about 3 years ago.
As ek jy was sou ek nie so gelyk het nie.

Kykdaar, my son, you have sinned.
Buy a KTM and you will be forgiven.
Go now, and do not ride a DR anymore.
Take my advice; I don't use it anyway.

I must confess !! I once had a flat front wheel !

 THE CHALLENGE MAY NOT BE EASY , BUT IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE.
SO MANY PLACES, SO LITTLE TIME !
