congrats plottes! now to juggle the time ;)

Thanks all

I cannot believe the interest this has generated. I really appreciate all the comments and good wishes

Now Wino - WISE WISE words

It's already a struggle because i really love that Kwat of mine (yes yes - I'm one of the responsible ones and restrict my hooliganism to the appropriate venue's)
And the 950 - now she's really cooking lately
And now this...... mmmmmmm. Truth is the new family addition is to fuel that passion on the 950. Lets hope my "training scheme" pays off
I used to be indecisive, but I'm not so sure anymore

Congrats Plothond. Mine and Peaches' new toys arrive on Thursday/Friday, not as wild as that Katoom, but they will indeed be fun. :)

Oi Adv, so, can you give us a little hint then......C'mon please!!
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

So we arrange a wilddogs ride out at DW in the near future.
Even the hot shots like Ufudo and Ox should join and teach us a few things.

Oi Adv, so, can you give us a little hint then......C'mon please!!

I bought 2 Yamaha Serows, 225cc scoots, for a good price, thanks to Watty for finding them. And then today I found a lekker XR100 Honda for Cherry, will fetch them all tomorrow hopefully.
For the price of one very powerful scoot, I have managed to buy 3 normal power scoots. :) :)
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Nice, I've always fancied having around 250cc to compliment my pig GS I'm using almost for everything. 200cc sounds like a real cracker for sunday's technical trail trainings.

Congrats!  O0

Pity the new Katoomers are out of my low budget although I'd really like to own 200cc one too... I'll be probably looking for Onda XR or Jamaha WR 250cc rice mach second-hand, any comments on them? Yeah, I know they all have lot of problems, as most hardcore enduros have, but any idea which is the best of them in service intervals vs offroad capability ratio?  (yeah, I know, not very common combination for hardcore offroaders)

Or Husqvarna TE mayhaps?

Shark?

Ok, here are the PIC's

Man.. this is one sweet bike. I bought this scoot from Bruce Ree of the e-dirt forum.
It is in great condition and goes like a rocket.
Our lawn will NOT recover this winter (...... or maybe NEVER ...  >:D >:D >:D)
Already organised to get the suspension set-up for myself and then it'll be absolutely just perfect.

Thanks Bruce - your ride has gone to a great home.
Maybe fortuitious, but I seized the rear wheel bearing & buggered the brake caliper on my Quad in De-Wildt today, so maybe my upcoming Botswana trip will be on two wheels are not four  :-\  he - he - he


Check out this bike !!!  (oh and other up & coming dust monster as well)






...and Helga came to visit, and she was wearing the right colour. So here is another great pic (..oh she looks great too)
