Hello from South Africa

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

Im Shane, Im from the Western Cape in South Africa. Have been following the instagram group and decided to come join the forum.

I have a 2016 R1200GS Adventure, love riding and being on a bike. Great forum, loving the product reviews side to the website.

 

 

So far all I've done on the bike is a set of Grip Buddies and Rox Risers that have been fitted recently.

Welcome Shane, glad to have you! I look forward to reading about and seeing what the riding is like in your part of this big ol' world. Nice looking bike.  :ride: What type of riding do you mostly do?

Hey Bryan, thanks! I see there is a ride reports thread so will definitely post up a trips and out rides as I can.

I prefer off-road riding, but the kilometers I've added to the bike so far have all been mostly on the road. I'm waiting on a set of rims so that I can alternate between having the normal Michelin Anakee 3 and a set of more aggressive tyres. The Anakee 3's don't do too badly on the gravel but it needs to be dry and you cant carry much speed.

Welcome, Shane!

 

I have a few ADV buddies over there in ZA (Michnus Olivier, Matt & Megan Snyman) and am on the WildDog and RoamAfrica forums.

 

Our ride reports thread is HERE

 

Can't wait to read your reports ;)
