    Helps to have a sunny coastline to ride along. Figured posting this video would get us a greeting from Cornelius who is probably hard at work today wishing he was riding instead.

    The weather in Cape Town is very unpredictable so when they get a sunny and windless day the guys over there get out to make the most of it

    I'm planning to go for a nice long ride on Tuesday and I'm looking forward to it, new DID x-ring chain and new 15/42 sprocket set installed last week, I really struggled with the output shaft oil seal which disintegrated when I tried to remove and replace with new one but the bike is up and running again

    The reason they go so fast is because they ride on the wrong side of the road.

    Not only do they drive on the wrong side of the road, but their engines run the other direction as well...must be '87's since there the only TW's that can go that fast. Supposedly!

    Not only that but their water circles the drain the wrong way!
    What will we ever do with those folks from the Southern Hemisphere?
