Hi from Johannesburg, South Africa
« on: October 20, 2020, 12:51:06 »
Been riding BMuu F800's for the last 10 years or so and decided earlier this year to move across to Honda.  Got a really good deal on a brand new 2019 Africa Twin Adventure Sport.  Unfortunately our usual annual trips through Lesotho and Swaziland were cancelled due to lockdown but the restrictions are slowly lifting and there's some great riding to be done within our borders here....

Welcome Mike! Been to your nick of the world several times, have done some amazing rides on bikes as well (Unfortunately never on a Honda!). Enjoy your ride. Recall on the feultank seems to affect mainly bikes for the US market (,for the moment). Ons sal kuier!
