62 000km, Net ge-cummute die afgelope 2 maande. Sal probeer om in April êrens 'n draai te gaan ry. Het die naweek 'n E07 gekoop wat ek eers moet opsit voor ek weer die grond kan aandurf.

Attempted to clean my bike properly over the weekend. Found these chave marks on the wires that run under the seat to the tail light and rear indicators. In the picture I already taped up the one spot on the right. The arrows point to the "lining" above the rear wheel.

Looking Good Abre; so it's now just about 'ridden in'... lol. I'm approaching 50thou, few hundred clicks to go to get there.
I have a E07 on the rear. If I may ask, what did the set go for?

They were not new when I fitted them. The front is a donated tyre and the rear I bought on Wilddogs.

FWIW --- a set of Bridgestone TW41/TW42 is probably the best tyre for your money. Less than R2000 fitted and new tubes are included when you buy the tyre.

22K km's good mileage; when I'm up for new, high milers will probably determine which tyre.
Any thoughts which brands would give this?

Best to read the "tyre" thread.
