Hi P and B

Many thanks for the greetings from S and G. They're super people. I really enjoyed the day on Stuart's DR when he showed my round some of Zululand. Please return the greetings, if you speak to them again.

Good luck in your quest to find a bike.
cheers
Chris

There are one or two S.A. Riders on here and on ADV rider who run bike rental businesses. One guy is Lecap (screen name) There is another guy, Johann. They know each other. They sell off older DR650's and KLR's. They may also be a good source for finding a good bike. Wish I knew more.

Smile KLR650 bought

Thanks everyone. We bought a KLR650 2007 model with only 2000km on it! We will be using her October-January 2011. She will have 12,000km on her then and we plan to sell her in South Africa, anywhere. If you are keen or know someone who is, let us know! +61 419309309
