Hello from South Africa

Postby Mario123 » Tue Aug 30, 2016 1:02 pm

Good morning from South Africa!

I am the proud owner of a brand spanking new SuperDuke SE. After dabbling a bit with racing (Daytona 675 and ZX10) my body decided its time for something less back (and bone) braking.

Currently breaking the bike in with ODO around 850km (530 miles).

apart from the wavy discs causing some pulsing motion when breaking, it is an absolutely fantastic bike.

You commuting on the Ben Schoeman highway then every day? That's got to be a ball ache of a trip.

You ever do the Sunday breakfast run to Hartbeesport?

I do the daily commute on the R21 (east of the Ben Schoeman) - less busy and not as congested. Harties, Magalies, Cullinan, Sabie, racetracks, local neighborhood...no place is safe anymore!!! :twisted:
