Let me introduce you to the greatest DS bike ever..........!





The Honda XRV750 Africa Twin......!

 >:D  Don't worry Road Hog  >:D, we'll forgive your ignorance!!  :imaposer:

Just to have a well looked after nice one today is a reward in itself!! I would love to have a XTZ 750 Tenere together with the Twin as well!!

Sooooo ...there is 40..Blazes wants to know who..    :deal:

--could be a good indication as to how they have stood the test of time --

If you look at the interest that a 650R that is for sale generates, how much people still compare a bike that hasn't really changed since 2000 to new hardware...it is standing the test of time, standing the test of reliability.. :deal:

How do you know someone owns a XR

They tell you!!  :pot:

You get roosted?

DRZ will smoke XR650R on most surfaces, except very fast flat, due to weight advantage.

I can see what happened here..no Yamaha, so you stuck your hand into the hat, (and like the Lotto), viola!, came up with  ???  ???  something that alas, would blow if ridden like an XR (the kicker, ask Stroke Her)

2StrokeDan, the Yamaha man!!! Dave, I refrained from commenting on that spesific post. Silence is golden.

But Dan, don't worry, I came to work this morning on my '90 Yammie DT180. And it is still going lekker! I thought this morning that I must ride it more often!

3. some are just for show --small percentage --

4. Spares -- a biggie are still available  ;)

5. Low cost on maintaining

6. Power to weight ratio --very good

7. Add what you think should be added------
People DON'T Change --we just get to know them better
Current Scooters --

Husqvarna TE 610 --Best Small DS Bike ever --Had two -- Dakota Just bought the one --
Aprilla 750 Dorsodura another DD Another Project Bike in the making 2012 model - Conceived To Thrill  Husqvarna 634 SMR Factory Works Replica --One of 100 in the World -ORGASMIC -  SOLD -To the USA

We are doing a mini Baja this weekend Lutzville to Hondeklipbaai and back and I will let you know which bike comes out on top. I already have a good idea but will keep it to myself for now.  

X-Challange
XR650R
KTM 690 Rally (ex Dakar bike)
KTM 640 Adventure
Suzuki DRZ 400E
Husky 610 TE

So how did the mini Baja go?
