Hi Peach,

Sorry I don't want to buy your bike, I already have six and my wife would kill me if I got another! I just wanted to say that I have recently met a couple of Aussies in D' salaam TZ traveling on one of these. They have been going two up around the world for the last 3 yrs and the bike has been magic! It has over 150,000 km on it and is still going very well.

Anyway, just for some traveling info on the DL1000.
