So Erin strikes again!

Contact me if you have a lost cause ;D

My Dakar does not have a centre stand. Neither handle bar raisers. In fact , a good course or two might not be a bad thing either.

hehe.

Good stuff MM!

A simple inovation by Groenie led to a simple question by a fellow member and the rest is history.

This forum rocks!

So I took the Stofkoei to have the center stand fitted this morning, and immediately found it to be quite useful.

A friggen puncture on the way home!!!!

Don't look back, that's not where you're going.
