Hi there clanners ....Kykdaar signing in.

Its been a while.... bought a 08 KLR when they were launched which also started off my DS riding. Probably sold that bike too soon......which is a common thing with me :laugh: ....but now 9 years later I bought a 2004 Fugly with the idea to chop it for a project.

Thing is, that apart from a niggle or two (to be expected from a 13 year old bike) it is actually in pretty good nick and I cannot get myself to break it up. So I will return to my roots and ride it for a while.

I actually am getting to appreciate the simplicity and thumper feel again - I smile when I ride it which is always a good thing.

Me being me I will fix what is broken, but I will refrain from blinging it in its standard form - the idea is to ride it more than fiddling with it.

So.....I will be asking lots of questions, many of which, no doubt, the old-timers would have heard many times before. Please bear with me and help me out - I will search before I ask, but not always good at that, or I may need some more specific information.

By the way.....who was the d@@s that put the word "kak" in the Fugly's Vin number? :laugh:

Some pics of when I took it through the test recently -

Hi en welkom hier.
En soos jy se, geniet die bike vir wat hy is en ry hom, ver teveel sien ek dat daar ge-warry word oor wat op die bike is eerder as waar op (of heen) jy die bike ry...
