Hello from Cape Town, South Africa
« on: September 22, 2019, 14:25:33 »
Hi Everyone, I'm Gregg du Plessis from Sunny Cape Town, South Africa,

Not a new rider, but new to the Honda V-twin life,
Recently purchased a 2001 Honda XL1000V Varadero which will be my summer project,

Bike has a great heart, although its a little neglected in the cosmetic department, which I can easily fix as time goes,

Here the bike in question:


Any other fellow riders from Cape Town here?
Current: 2001 Honda XL1000V Varadero
Past: Yamaha FZR 1000 | Honda VFR400 NC24 | Yamaha FJ1200 | Kawasaki KDX200 SR | Kawasaki ZZR400 | Honda LS125R | Suzuki PE175
