@FarangMoto yyeah the first trip was mainly off road - from Brakpan Meyerton Vaal dam through to Foriesburg via Bethlehem ( if you have google earth and some time on your hands )

was in the company of a couple of 640s , a 690 , and a 990 adventure s , and didnt feel out of my league
having said that wet clay and deep sand made for some interesting moments - so I will be looking at some more offroad rubber..


slabbed it on the way back in the company of a Triumph 1200 mainly at +- 100 Mph / 160 km/h indicated ( 151 on the GPS ) and she ( now named Britannia ) ran like a clock


@Denburger , protection first - Rumbux on the way

then................................
