What a great couple. I don't think one can read stuff like in a magazine. 
Take my advice; I don't use it anyway.

Die mapsource file is te danke aan Slaaiblaar. :thumleft:

Thx navigator  :thumleft:

Thx  Uilspieël , I have a star pillion as ThinkMike commented, if there is such a thing like a natural pillion, my wife is one.  I have seen your planned trip to Van Zyl's pass, you go and do it and enjoy it, it will be a once in a life time experience that other can only dream about.  We have done it in a cage and it was a wonderful experience.

What a great report.  My son and I are planning a trip through many of the same places at the end of July.  Being from the US this is super helpful.    Dankie

Fuel time. 



Hallo VisArend. Wat noem jy hierdie spaar petrol sak en wie maak dit? Hoeveel liter, en waar kry mens hulle?
Ek kan onthou dat jy iemand geantwoord hieroor het maar kan nie die post opspoor nie.

Dankie.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

@ Jacobsroodt

Hulle noem die ding 'n "fuel cell".  Jy kan dit kry by Bikegear.  Hier is so paar vendors op die forum wat sal kan help, soos ChrisL.  Die sak vat 7liter petrol en is opvoubaar.  Ek het net so oor die R600 betaal (as ek reg kan onthou).  Dis een van die beste beleggings wat ek gemaak het, die ding werk werklik goed.  Dit seel 100% en pak maklik weg.  Ek dink om nog een te koop om water te vervoer.

Hoop ek kon help.  Vra maar as jy nog hulp nodig het.

MAW: As jy water in die een het, petrol in die ander, dan drink jy die water . . .  Dan is jy en die bike "ge-petrol"   :imaposer:  :imaposer:

Jammer Louis - ek moes en kon myself nie keer nie  :mwink:

Op 'n ernstige noot - sal die water nie na rubber smaak nie??
