Martin (en ander) - ek marshal vir Think Bike - ons doen gereeld events saam met WC Traffic - big cheese Kenny Africa homself het ons (en alle) motorfietse toestemming gegee om oranje (net oranje) hooflig covers te he, en om te lane split.

en so by the way, te danke aan ons (Think Bike Marshals), mag motorfietse lane split - waar dit eers onwettig sou gewees het... B)

War Eagle factory is just down the road from me, but pretty sure they now share retail premises with House of Bikes just off Zambesi drive.
If you wanna order online and pay, I can collect and get it to Midrand if that helps.

Ek is 'n voorstander van sigbaarheid en die "amber" skerms doen dit beslis
Ek wil net genoeg skietgoed bymekaarmaak as die manne my stop - daar staan op my skerm "Not for highway use"
Maar ons ry mos nie gereeld highways nie :whistle:

I fitted that new 3500lumens LED headlight - bright as the sun. Two nights later lying in Casualties because "I didn't see you" happened.

If I ride bike again the orange protector will be one of the first items I add.

OK. So after reading all this I thought I'd share my accidental solution to the "can't see at night" problem regarding the light cover. Mine fell off and cracked. So lately I have been riding without it. Morning traffic in the dark (06:00) gets a bit sticky so I had to improvise and did this.




This means I drive with brights on and it doesn't seem to bother anyone. Hope it lasts ! :blink:

Roes, is that filament or the perspex cover cut in half?

One day I will die, but on all the others I will not, so on those days I will live it to the fullest!!

Ek het my KLR nog nie eens 'n maand gehad nie toe koop ek die geel / oranjarige lig skerm. As cager het ek TE veel kere agtergekom dat 'n mens nie die verskil tussen 'n motorfiets met ligte aan en 'n motor wat se een lig agter verkeer uitsteek, kan onderskei nie. Die fietse met skerms op steek uit soos 'n puisie op 'n vark se g@t!!

Dit is nou nog vir my ongelooflik hoe cagers vir my spasie maak in vergelyking met ander fietse wat verby my kom maar wat nie skerms op het nie. Ek het teen skemer gister middag 'n rooi en swart KLR op die N1 noord gekry wat by Olifanstfontein opgeklim het, ek was reeds heel regs. Met die wat dit skemer was het ek hom dadelik verloor tussen die cagers, hy was letterlik "onsigbaar" vir 'n ruk, totdat hy al reeds besig was om verby my te kom. Geen skerm wat onderskeiding tref nie.

Snaaks genoeg het ek hierdie naweek toe ek my fiets was, besluit om die daad by die woord te sit en ek het my skerm in twee gesny. Ek kan nou maklik een of albei skerms afhaal, afhangende of ek op 'n teerpad of grondpad is en nodig het dat cagers my moet sien en of ek in die pad moet kan sien.







One day I will die, but on all the others I will not, so on those days I will live it to the fullest!!

Ja Sarel, ek het die stuk wat gekraak was afgesaag - gelukkig was dit die regte kant. Daai velcro goedjies werk in elk geval nie. Die double sided tape werk baie beter. Myn is net in die hoek en onder vas en hy sit nog stewig. Vandag kon ek duidelik sien dat die karre meer bewus is van my en ek hoef nie te worry om die ding af te haal as ek in die donker ry nie. Ongelukkig het die ander helfte van die screen in stukke gebreek. Ek hou daarvan dat jy die opsie het om altwee te doen.
