I also hit the slab quite often,have a CBR1000RR for that, breakfast runs etc , use the S10 to cruize with other half, tar and dirt. I use the XR650R to play in the dirt and the YZ250F to bundu bash, A bike for each occasion, this morning played in dirt on XR, then took cruize To Port Alfred with Lee, this afternoon went and played in the mountains with YZ........ I think I use them equally as much and I ride every day

Just sold my DRZ 400 SM motard.Awesome bike and had loads of fun on it.Best commuter one can have(any Motard for that matter).
I also ride a 2009 HD Road King.I ride it like it is meant to be ridden,and the missus and i dig it.We got a cool bunch of friends we ride with,and we have heaps of good times.The missus enjoys it,so do nto want to discourage that at all.
She not so keen on doing the dirt bit yet,but I am working on her.... :ricky:

p.s. At work so no photies,but have posted my DRZ and HD plenty before

Honda VFR 800, did an easy 460 km ride yesterday just to get out of Joburg, Heidelburg, followed the Vaal river for a while, breakfast in Parys,  then headed for the back roads to Heckpoort, Harties and home, even rode a bit of dirt but the "clearance"- what clearance is limited.......

I'll ride anything with two wheels and a motor. I still have an old Yamaha Chappy that I want to get into working condition again. Will ride that to the shops with a huge smile. Also want to try and get a dirt bike and a tourer but have to buy the wife a car this year so maybe that will happen next year

That was the bike I trained on. Yee haven't seen one of them for a long time. My first bike riding experience around 1977  :thumleft:

Ek besit nog 'n 1981 oorspronklike Katana 1100.  Dit is vir my die mooiste fiets ooit, maar ek start haar deesdae net as ek skuldig voel.  Die GS is net soooo gemaklik.  :ricky:

Dis juis die een wat ek op gery het as 'n kind. Het met Honda mini trails begin en toe ek clutch en ratte kon werk oor geskuif na die chappy toe. Die een is nou al in ons familie vir seker 30 jaar maar het vir die laaste 10+ jaar op die plaas gestaan en vrot. Een van my nuwe jaars voornemens om aan hom te begin werk die jaar  :thumleft:

My oldest bike is a 1930 BSA and my newest a 2011 XR650, with some odds in between like a '78 XS1100 (my dad bought it new) and a '72 BMW R50. Must say I enjoy and can appreciate most types of bikes but will not be seen dead on a scooter, probably from my school days when they were considered girl toys and no red blooded male would be seen on one........ :biggrin:

My two favourires at the moment are my XR650 and KTM300, but for sheer power pleasure in dirt nothing comes close to 2 stroke power......... :thumleft:

Pieter is daai 'n custom paint job, want ek en die vrou het seker 'n jaar terug met 'n ou gepraat voor Full THrottle Cresta, en sy bike was dieselfde kleur, nie dalk jy nie?

Wel ek het mos my GS verkoop en nou het ek en mamma 'n RT, wat 'n awesome bike die kilometers verdwyn net voor jou.

Op die oomblik behalwe die pad, err ek bedoel DS GSA, MTB en plastics, WR450 vir my CRF230 vir vrou en TT-R125 vir dogter.
Daar is ander bikes in die toekoms, nog nie seker wat nie.

Sal enige bikes ry, maar wil nie graag herken word of fotos laat neem op 'n scooter nie  :imaposer:
