I'm also passed by this oke travelling the opposite direction. Past Leeukop prison towards Main / Witkoppen this oke comes from the front riding like a maniac.

Yummie Xt660X with twin Ackrapovics - awesome sound. Would love a bike like that to commute to the office  :wink:

OK. Here's a BM as well.  :roll:  :lol:

Said it back then and saying it now. It doesn't look right. :?

The Katoom and DRZ looks the business. Maybe the X650 Motard .

I'm in the process of "motarding" my Honda crf 450X. Fitting Aprilla ally rims, short front mudguard and new front disc and caliper. It's fitted with a Leo Vince pipe without baffles. It's going to be a mean run a round bike if it all works out!

Pierre Terreblanche has been head-design-honcho at Ducati for AGES!
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Wow "Riding like a maniac" is rich Leo! You came past me the other morning and made me feel like I was trying to park! Balls - Respect!
It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary MC

My mate Toecutter's brand new Husqvarna 610.

TC bought a motard kit comprising of the wheels and the tires, so he can use the bike for dirt riding with the knobbies on...or convert it to a motard with the second set of wheels and road tires.
He's loving it.
Before anyone asks that is a special tool-kit bag that straps securely to your front mudguard.
This pic was taken last week when TC rode 800 kms in one day from Sydney up to Coffs Harbour for a huge bike rally.
This is the New England countryside along the aptly named Thunderbolts Way.
It's not just a mode of transport, it's a fking adventure!

What a nice guy, I got to meet Pierre at the Eicma bike show last year and even though he was clearly busy he took the time to talk to me, discuss the bikes and recomend where i should visit and stay while in Italy.
