Ouens, ek het 'n 1996 DR 350 SE gehad. Ek het haar in 2009 verkoop en vir amper 12 jaar gery. Wat 'n lekker bike. Ek het baie navrae gedoen om groter tank te kry, maar was maar bang vir fitment omrede ek nie baie prakties is nie. Maar ek moet se daai bike lyk mooi met sy groter tank en is prakties. Ek het maar baie met 1.5l coke bottel vol petrol saam gery. Ek het so 24 km op 'n liter gekry. Ek het wyd met haar gery. Ja en ek mis haar baie. Ek moes haar verkoop, R13000 met 30000 km op die klok. Daai enjin was nooit oop nie en sy het nie olie gebruik nie. Die bike loop vandag iewers in die Garden Route.

Ek het ook gelees daai jare van 'n japanner wat om die wereld met sy 350 getoer het sonder ernstige probleme.

Ek het paar keer met haar Gamkaskloof toe gery en baie in Van Wyksdorp area en Vleiland. Ek noem dit maar net vir CBL van Ladismith. Dalk was hy ook op die trip in die hel saam met oorlede Andre wat die trip gereel het.

Hou vas aan daai bike, dit is 'n lekke bike!!!
Gooi los!!!

Jip,ek hoor jou maat. Ons CBLers gaan die eerste naweek van Jullie weer die Hel ding doen, so in oom Andre (Pokky, Renegades) se tradisie. Die DR gaan nie deur myself gery word nie, maar deur PC van Meadows, sodat die gogga hom weer n slag kan byt en hy weer  n bike kan gaan koop. Kom maak n draai by Olive (ou Kicks) as jy weer in die omgewing is.

Don't do it - that KLR just ain't going to scratch your itch.

How much??

 >:( !Noooo!!

Don't do it berty. Surely there are other things you could sell? A kidney, a couple of your neighbours sheep(they wont miss them, they all look the same) or maybe some eskom wires and some manhole covers?(eskom tax rebate)

If we can't talk you out of it then hopefully you sell your baby to a wilddog.
And that doesn't mean you have to stop posting here  :deal:

Ja,I know, still I think you will have a small bike again in the future. The KLR is lekker, but the love is less after the fifth or sixth time you have to pick her up ;D but the love comes back when she starts first time every time and "major" surgery is doing the doohicky and a new chain once in a while.

8L spaarbussie ;D Nee, ek weet nog nie, Ek het ook nog n spaar (ou) stel clocks wat in myle afgemerk is met n tacho wat nie werk nie en n ignition wat uitgewrk is met n vismes vir n sleutel, en twee discs wat nog seker ok is as iemend syne/hare dalk gebuig het, dit sal op n <98 350 en <91 250 pas. Twee batterye vat nog goeie Volts het maar nie genoeg Amps om die elek start te spin nie, goed vir kickers.

Ag fok, ek huil sommer soos n babatjie :imaposer: :'( :imaposer: :'(

Guys,

The Volcano Desert run I mentioned last week has been posted under "Planning a Ride".  I have changed the name to "VOLCANO RUN" in difference to the other Desert Run.

Alli, the little box is an original tool box for heavier tools.  It is suspended low from the passangers foot rest (Not the swing arm of course) in an effort to keep weight as low as is convenient.
