:shock:  :shock:

Getting my wheels to day. (No Pics yet, Sorry)
After long deleberation, reseach and re-research, I at long last bought a new bike! :D


And its a .........









KTM :lol:


But due to some considderations and deliberations and consternations, it turned out to be a 250 enduro (don't know the extentions yet).

But dont fret my dust loving bretheren, in a years time I'll get me a propper dually again.

You'll also still see me around here and I will post ride reports.
Edit: Or should I say fall reports? :D

Till later

I concure. It is the most fun I'v had on any bike yet. :P
Given, I have not riddena lot of bikes but still. :D
Edit: The guy I bought it from still have the orange side covers and will get them to me soon. I like the look of your bike with the orange covers


Tommorow gonna give it a good wash and look through.
Hopfully we can then sort the chain with the help of a buddy of mine in Mafikeng.  :)

Then we're gonna get it dirty again  :twisted: in the riverbed

So expect a ride report soon :)
