Super Tenere XTZ750 COMPLETELY set up for touring for sale in South Africa

This is a great opportunity for someone who doesn't want to ship their bike into Africa.
For the price of shipping from almost anywhere, you can buy this bike already set up.
She is a 1996 maroon Super Tenere. We have done tonnes of modifications and really looked after her.
She has an Ohlins shock, super strong and reinforced GIVI racks, Bagster tank protection, very comfortable modified gel seat with Australian sheep skin cover, custom made tool box under engine, with all the tools you will ever need!
The mileage is just over 100,000 and we have maintained and serviced her regularly. We don't take her on bad dirt roads.
We will sell Miss Adventure II for US$5,000 and will contemplate selling everything else, ie 3 GIVI boxes, helmets, jackets, pants, gloves, everything needed to do a trip for not much extra.
Belinda is size small and Pat is size large.
Check out lots of photos on www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/peck
We are currently driving around Capetown if you want to see the bike.
We will be leaving Capetown and finished with the bike approx 20 Feb 2011. If we don't sell her we will probably store her with HU member Johan Naude, on his wine farm in Worcester, 120 km from Capetown.

Call on 0727 099 042 (South Africa +27) or email patandbin@yahoo.com
The bike has been maintained well and given us NO PROBLEMS.
The bike does not use any oil between its 8,000km services.
She is ready to keep going another 100,000km.
The cost to ship her back to Australia prevents us from shipping her home, as much as we would love to keep her.
Let us know if you are keen! We are running out of time and we have to sell her!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
