Hi Berty

Herms did a change back to 350cc, added his pumper carb and supertrapp exhuast.  Have been chatting to Jesse already thanks.  Bike is just shy of 50k on clocks now, but only around 1500km since rebuild.

Love the one you are with

Some inspiration for others to go ride.  Did a quick ride up Elandsrivier rd to see how the bike is doing.  Stopped around 20km in (where the gravel colour changes) as i had to get back for dinner... But loved the ride even though it was a quick one.  Bike handled wonderfully.

Gebruik sommer n goed ge-oliede sykous vir eers 10Klr, wat jy oor die mond vd moerse opening trek. Hy sal die ergste goete vang.

Remember to change your fork oil regularly - no more than 5000k with easy riding, sooner if going has been a bit tougher.

Hi All

May be looking at selling my bike.  Just a feeler at the moment. Its Herms bike that he did the rebuild on.  Has just been serviced 600km ago by Herms before i took delivery.  Bike has been roadworthied and is on my name.  Steering head bearings need to be replaced.  I am still waiting on stock.

Price R17500.

If anyone is interested please PM me.  The bike has pumper carb fitted, supertrapp exhuast, oil cooler, acerbis 16l tank, oil temp guage. Besides the steering head bearings bike is in great condition.  Bike is in Port Elizabeth.  Reason for selling, to do a bit of a long tour in a bit more of a rush than i would want to put this bike through. 
Love the one you are with

I'll take the shoes! They seem to be in good condition. What size and how much?

I recently got my hand on a Legendary DR350 stock standard. And may just be the first DR350 modded to be ridden with one hand :)
