Hi everyone,

After reading about Pink doing Pretoria to Lesotho on his 250 that size bike became a very real possibility for me.

So if a bike (like this one www.gumtree.co.za/a-motorcycles-scooters...12467150910207197909) is available is it worth considering?

Dr or Groenie, do you know this bike at all?

Thanks

Mine was a gift at R14 000 with only 4500 K on the clock. It was barely broken in. Original papers and purchase sheet.

The fun factor on "small" bikes is higher, IMHO.

That Sandton KLR 250 on Gumtree may have looked good cosmetically but it's internals were less than kosher.
