Intro. Keeping the wheels turning...

Heres a chuckle for the month.

Dominick picks up his old adventure bike from

his mechanic Tony. Tony says, “Dominick, you

gotta think about trading this bike in. It seems

like it’s breakin’ down every other week. I love

having you as a customer but this thing is

costing you a fortune.”

“Yeah, but look at it,” Dominick says. “It’s

starting to rust, the tyres are almost bald, and

it’s got like 190,000 kilometres on it. Nobody’s

gonna give me any money for a bike like this

with 190,000 kilometres on it.”

“Tell you what I can do,” Tony says. “This is

just between you and me, but I could roll back

your odometer. That way you could maybe get

at least a few hundred bucks for it.”

Dominick agrees and gives Tony R100.00 to

roll back the odometer.

Two weeks later Dominick comes by and asks

Tony to top up the oil on the bike. Tony looks

at the old thing and says, “I thought you was

gonna trade this in. What are ya doin’ still

riding it??”

VLA Racing, the new Yamaha

With the R19 replacement sliders you will

protect the engine against a fall and prevent

hitting your knee when getting on the bike. Its

aggressive and futuristic design blends

perfectly with the current trend of larger displacement

motorcycles.

The piece is made off ofa black nylon motor

protector and the decorative rubber. This

design element adapts perfectly and you can

find spare parts to personalize the motorcycle

in a variety of colours: black, blue, red, orange,

green, gray or white. The protector is available

in 85 mm and 50 mm length, for both M10 and

M12 screws. Looks cool! Works great!

More Cape Town News:

In summer they have some of the best riding

weather and if you have ever ridden a motorcycle

along Clarens drive, Franschoek pass,

Bainskloof pass, Du Toits Kloof pass or through

Slanghoek you will know that the riding is

sublime and that is just to mention a few of the

paved roads in the area, the dirt road and off

road riding is even better.

Our ‘Lady in the Cape’, Lorna Daroll has been

busy again this month and has so much news

from the area. If you would like her to pop past

your establishment or join you at one of your

events please give her a call on 074 122 4874

or drop her a mail on lorna@motomedia.co.za .

We Joburgers look forward to meeting more of

you through

Lorna’s articles and hopefully one day in person

as well.

Yamaha-Adventure rentals

Southern Africa.

Yamaha Adventure rentals started in 2015.

Their tours, with a major gravel-road content, begin

mostly in the Western Cape and into Namibia, Vic

Falls, as well as numerous East Country tours into

the Eastern & Northern Cape, with no limits based

on the client’s available time. They have transported

bikes to Windhoek, Beit Bridge, Johannesburg,

Durban, Port Elizabeth and more, based on their

client’s needs.

Their clients, usually from abroad, start to make

contact at least a year before their trip and the team

then tailor their requirements to what they consider

to be suitable for their riding style, need as well as

experience. Some hire all the riding Gear, including

GPS, Soft luggage Bags etc. Larger groups, usually

request a tour guide, back up 4x4 type vehicle,

spare bike etc. and share these common costs.

Smaller groups also hire a GPS from Yamaha-Adventures

and, after having planned their tour with

them, a detailed and specific route is downloaded

, steered by information collected over the years.

These routes are designed according to accessibility

at certain times of the year in order to avoid

harsh weather conditions, excessive temperature

and possible erosion after heavy rains.

Yamaha-Adventures’ bikes are fitted with tracking

devices and, although dependent on mobile phone

networks, have proved to be an invaluable support

system when needed ( they are linked to ER24,

providing comfort to unfortunate clients who may

be injured).

The team are busy the whole year round with

shorter term rentals, for local and foreign visitors,

wanting to get out and ride with their friends over

weekends and sometimes during the week, when

the boss is not looking.

Longer term rentals are available for people who

need a commuter for a month or two. These rates

are tailored to suit budgets after careful consideration.

GS BIKE TRADERS

In 1997, Jaco Buys (owner and founder of GS Bike

Traders), bought his first ever BMW GS

motorcycle solely for the purpose of commuting

back and forth between rugby practices and work.

Although qualified with a Masters degree in bio

kinetics, he decided that his passion lay

somewhere else and made the decision to follow

his dream. In 2013, he started buying GS

motorcycles and servicing,

cleaning and then selling. In 2015 he opened his

first GS Bike Traders in Okavango.

Later the business moved to Stand Street, Bellville

for four years and this was where GS Bike Traders

acquired their reputation.

They pride themselves on buying and selling bikes

that they would ride themselves, low mileage,

accident free GS

motorcycles.

GS Bike Traders are now situated at 4 Shropshire

Street, Paarden Eiland, with their showroom,

friendly staff and service department that’ll fit the

rider’s needs.

Come and meet the team and let them help you to

start an adventure of a lifetime!

PROX Crank kits

@ Game Services:

Game Services in Benoni are the

go to guys for all engine rebuilds. We

would love to know what their stock holdings are

because it is very seldom that we cannot find a

part when our scoots break. When one of our

2-strokes called it a day a while ago, we went on

the hunt. The importer did not have the necessary

parts in stock – and the crankshaft was just

too damaged to replace only the rod. Ken went

and scratched around in the back and emerged

with a complete crank from ProX.

ProX has a long reputation of providing

OEM-quality parts at fair prices, ranging from

pistons to cables to chains, and everything

in between. Looking at the heartbeat of a dirt

bike’s engine, the crankshaft, ProX has been

offering connecting rod kits complete with

OE-manufactured parts and double-forged Japanese

steel connecting rods, which have earned

a reputation of being a strong and affordable

option.

However, not everyone has the ability to rebuild

their crankshafts, nor do they want to pay

someone to rebuild it for them. This is why ProX

Racing Parts is now offering complete, drop-in

crankshafts for selected models of two-stroke

and four-stroke dirt bikes.

Handy, Quick and the price seems pretty fair.

Game Services: www.gameservices.co.za

Go grab yourself a Bolt kit…

Euro Style Pro Pack for 4-stroke and 2-strokes

current.Over 180 pieces of KTM factory style

Polaris

unveils

Over 1.6 million riders and counting, Polaris Sportsman is

now taking its top selling ATV line-up to the next level. The

new generation of Sportsman features a bold, modern design

with new features and product improvements, all while

featuring the same legendary ride and handling, legendary

versatility and reliable performance that the Polaris Sportsman

is renowned for.

Arriving in dealers soon, the fully upgraded 2021 platform is

endeavouring to suit every rider’s need and style, along with a

range of new accessories that take customisation to the next

level.

“ATVs are often the initial spark that ignites a passion for

off-roading and pulls in new riders, and Sportsman is the icon

that established the industry. As a result, it occupies a significant

place within our storied brand history,” said Steven

Menneto, President of Polaris Off Road. “We’re thrilled to push

Sportsman into the future with the all-new 570 platform, taking

our best-selling ATV line up to the next level.”

Modern look and features

The all-new Sportsman 570 platform features significant

upgrades throughout. The full list of improvements is impressive

with a new, bold design from front-to-back, including the

new handlebar mounted pod with an integrated built in battery

charging port, and all new body shape with sharper, more aggressive

lines. The modern features of the Sportsman 570 run

much deeper than style with intuitive and easy-to-use operation;

one-touch, True On-Demand all-wheel drive, in-line shifting, and

single-lever braking allow for simple and effective user control.

Product improvements

The new Sportsman 570 has a larger, more powerful 18AH battery

that delivers 78% more cold cranking amps for a confident

start every time. The battery has been relocated underneath

the front rack for easy access for maintenance, and there’s a

convenient battery charging port located on the pod.

a new

generation of ATV...

There have also been some major improvements to the engine

braking system (EBS) on applicable 2021 models, now delivering

a smoother and more controlled riding experience in all

terrain type. EBS-equipped models also receive a new clutch

for smooth engagement at low speeds, especially useful when

precision is needed, like when navigating tight trails or backing

up to a trailer.

Enhanced quality

Mark Chittenden, General Manager at Smith Power Equipment

for Polaris added that, “The new Sportsman 570 platform has

a premium look and feel with enhanced durability, all while

providing unbeatable value. With new sealed suspension bushings,

new and improved brake lines and A-Arms, as well as a

fully sealed ignition switch, the Sportsman 570 boasts ultimate

resilience.”

All new 570 models include steel front rack extenders as standard,

increasing strength and including updated tie-downs for

more versatility when hauling heavy loads. The Sportsman 570

now features larger, more durable 25-inch Carlisle 6-ply tyres on

all standard models, providing increased ground clearance and

puncture resistance for a smoother ride and peace of mind in

tough terrain.

Advanced capabilities

Giving riders the confidence to go further and do more, the

Sportsman 570 boasts an increased towing capacity of 680kg,

29.6cm of ground clearance and a total payload capacity of up

to 232kg.

COVER STORY

KAWASAKI’S XC models

KAWASAKI BACK ON TRACK

2021 KX450XC and KX250XC.

Big News!

Kawasaki is back at the off-road races with the Kawasaki Pepson Plastic team.

Nope! That’s Huge news!

It’s Awesome to see Team Green making an appearance after such a long absence. And

they are competing on Kawasaki’s very latest cross country bikes. And we got to play

on both of the new models. How cool is that?

At our offices, we are all huge Kawasaki fans. The junior riders out there might not

remember – but not too long ago, the KDX200 was almost one of those mandatory

bikes that you had to cut your teeth on. And there are still hundreds of those still

running around on the trails. Kawasaki also made some great four strokes – there was

a KLX 450 electric start that our editor rode for Thirty Thousand Kilometres. Correct!

Thirty thousand. And that bike is still racing around in the hands of the next owner.

Bulletproof tech for sure.


With the strength of the Yen – prices started going

a bit haywire and sadly, like one of the other

Japanese brands, Kawasaki opted not to bring

four-stroke off-road models in for a while.

But hey presto! Guess what? The bikes are back

in the form of the 2020 KX450XC and the 250XC.

These are the bikes that the Pepson Mob will be

campaigning on for the 2021 season. We met up

with the guys at the team launch on a Saturday

morning – and they offered us a chance to swing

a leg over. Frantic calls were made – kit was

rushed in from home – and we happily

disappeared on the bikes for a few fun hours.

The Bones:

At a glance, the 450 and the 250 look quite

similar. Based, naturally on their motocross

counterparts with common engine, frame,

chassis and styling, the closed-course XC

models differ with new and unique engine tuning,

suspension settings and off-road specific

components.

Off-road riding components include a skid plate,

side stand and 18-inch rear wheel.

The bikes come standard with Dunlop rubber,

but the Pepson team has opted to race on Pirelli

for the 2021 season. Standard, the bikes have

different EFI settings, different gear ratios, and

softer suspension spring rates and valving. Most

of the standard changes most riders would make

to their motocross bike to make them more

off-road oriented. The only basic starter items

you might want to consider adding on these

bikes would be hand guards and a bigger tank.

Climbing aboard, the bikes feel small and quite

compact – slender with quality components all

over the show.

On both bikes, the motocross heritage is

instantly apparent with a tight, race ready

package. Everything seems to fit and the bikes

just feel natural and right. The chassis is narrow

with a comfortable feeling of sitting on top of the

bike. They give you four different handlebar

position options and two different foot peg

position options.

Nice!

The big change over the MX’rs is the suspension.

The suspension on each XC is the same

units as on the MX versions, but with different

tuning. Both XC’s have the clickers set

differently from the equivalent MX bikes—the

450 uses Showa and the 250 goes with KYB.

The KX450XC gets softer springs at both ends,

while the KX250XC has softer fork springs with

the same shock spring.

The bikes share top-drawer Nissin brakes,

exactly the same as the motocross model and

they work really well. The front is a large 270mm

disc with a 240mm out back.

Renthal Bars are standard, however on this 450,

they have been changed for a slightly different

bend.


Our trails:

The back of Rhino Park.

A groot quarry with steep-ish long ish climbs. Sandy fast

tracks – and then, of course the famous quarry with tight

twisty trails through the trees. We did not go and ride

rocks. The bikes were new with no real protection and

we didn’t want to be the first to put dings into them.

And we had a few of the race boys along to egg us on.

Ride impressions.

The 250: Light, Tight, Nimble.

We got to ride two versions of the bike – The team

Bosses personal machine that had all sorts of extra

goodies fitted – and the standard bike that young Kyle

Mckenzie will be racing.

The guys have fitted longer gearing onto the bike – the

standard 13/51 gearing changes to14/49. We were a bit

nervous about bottom end torque being affected on what

is already a GNCC bike. But the concerns at a track like

this were unfounded.

The engine in this bike is the same all-new electric startequipped

powerplant of the 2021 KX250, with only a

change in the EFI. After doing a little research, we

discovered the EFI “change” is simply that the bike

comes with the black (mellow) coupler as a standard

setting.

There is still the option to switch to the green (standard)

or white (aggressive) couplers that are included with the

bike, and the ECU is reprogrammable with your own

personal maps using the KX FI Calibration Controller

that is available for purchase as an accessory. Kyles

bike was running the white coupler for the day.

If you have ridden the MX bike, you’ll know that

Kawasaki knows exactly how to build them – and even

with the softer suspension, the 250XC felt great around

the track.

Tearing along the trails, we were super impressed – this

is a great off-road trail muncher. The engine package

works perfectly with power everywhere that you need it.

The conditions were wet and slippery in places but the

bike tracks and hooks up really well. Despite the longer

gearing, power on the start is great and she finds

traction – even with the more aggressive plug in. We

had a few impromptu dices and came away grinning

every time. This bike is built for terrain like Rhino, so

nimble, quick and slender…

We tested the brakes when we came across a tree that

had fallen over the trail and had to slam on anchors.

Hard! They worked perfectly – but our Ed still managed

to tangle himself right into the branches before grinding

to a halt to the gleeful laughter of two Kyles who were

also on the loop.

But it was all in the interest of science, because we

needed to extract the bike from the tree branches and

found that it is light, small and easy to maneuver when

you are in a tight spot. As a side - this is another good

reason to always wear good goggles and the right gear

when almost crashing…

The ride continued with as many jumps, hillclimbs

and twists as we could find – and both

testers came out with big grins at the end of it.

It will be interesting to see how they fare in the

races but as a day to day scrambler or a fun

bike – the 250 is very impressive!

The 450: Open wide and hold on tight!

Fact: 450’s are not for sissies.

Fact: Most mere mortals cannot even ride

them – or we can for a while but the fact is that

after two or three laps, chances are that you

will need a drip with some jet-fuel to get going

again.

And manufacturers know this – so they tame

them down to make them a lot more user

friendly. The Kawasaki KX450 motocross bike

has been on a roll since the introduction of the

all-new model in 2019. Since then, Eli Tomac

has won the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Motocross

Championship and wrapped up the 2020

Monster Energy AMA Supercross title. It made

sense for Kawasaki to use this bike as a

platform for what the yanks call a GNCC racer.

It’s a competition off-road bike for events like

national off-road racing and the GXCC.

Ride impressions:

We fully expected to have our arms ripped out

on this one – but in the tight stuff, the KX450

engine is actually quite user friendly. Still plenty

more than a normal rider would ever need, but

– like we mentioned earlier, Kawasaki gives a

tamer electronic package for trail riders.

Interestingly, the KX450X is the only 450cc

cross-country motorcycle to have plug and play

EFI couplers. The ECU is reprogrammable, but

it can only be done with the KX FI Calibration

Controller, but the KX450X comes stock with

the black (mellow) EFI coupler, meaning it has

just a little slower-revving power and possibly

a little more torque. You can still switch to the

green (standard) or, if you enjoy Berzerk, white

(aggressive) couplers that are included with the

bike.

Even with the longer gearing on this 450 (14/50

as opposed to 13/51), it was actually a lot of fun

to ride in the tighter terrain. She tracks

beautifully and turns so well in a typical MX bike

fashion. The bike feels light and the small

chassis makes it really easy to maneuver.

The suspension is forgiving without any kind of

soggy or soft feel. The chassis is really, really

good. In trail conditions, there’s a bucket load of

torque all around and the bike is actually really

user friendly.

Open the throttle and

Well as expected, the world rushed by in a

blur. Modern 450’s are just so quick – and with

the longer gearing on this one, we ran out of

road before hitting anything near the bikes top

speed. Still – the torque is excellent – and we

reckon that this might just be one of those bikes

that will give you the holeshot just about every

time. They could easily have fitted a sixth gear

to this 450 engine.

Everything about this bike is racy from taught suspension to brakes

that “skrik for niks” and horsepower on tap that will make you

smile. Power comes on strong with a decent amount of hit, good

midrange grunt, and runs out long enough so that you don’t have

to shift before the next corner. But it’s all quite easily controllable.

If fast open racing or dune riding is your thing – then this is one

bike that you need to go and ride.

Conclusions:

If fast, open, flowing trails are your thing, then these are two bikes

that you need to look at. Both are quick, light, nimble, quick and

powerful.

And it’s fantastic to see them back on the startlines in off-road

racing.

KTM launches their 2021 teams

It is business unusual – and this year, rather than inviting media

along to a press launch, the guys from KTM HQ roped in the

talents of a certain Mr Binder to introduce the national MX,

Enduro and Cross country team. And he did a great job.

If ever riding Moto GP bikes really quickly doesn’t work out, he’ll

get a job on TV for sure!

Go and have a look on our page - facebook.com/dirtandtrail

MX - Red Bull KTM:

On the track, KTM has roped in some talented riders for the year,

with SA champ Tristan Purdon leading the charge in the MX team. In

the opening round this year he… well you can read all about it in our

national MX feature elsewhere in this here magazine. He is joined by

high School champ Josh Mlimi, who is ON FIRE right now.

Cameron Durow, three-time MSA National Champion, two-time

WOMZA National Champion and three-time Motocross of African

Nations Champion brings a wealth of experience. Young Trey Cox

rounds up the MX lineup.

Trey steps up to the 85cc class. Racing is in the Cox family genes for

sure. Man! What a great team, we see lots of awesome dices coming

right up!

Brother Leader Tread KTM:

Moving into the bush, you’ll find some of the fastest, most

talented riders around dressed in orange.

Jarryd Coetzee is so hungry for the season. He has rocked

the race scene with his pace. This year he wears the No 2

plate… but he is aiming for no 1 for the 2021 season…

Charan Moore is a guy who can win on any day in either

Enduro or Cross Country. This rider out of Ladybrand is

avery experienced campaigner to watch for the 2021

season.

Brad Cox – same story. He can race MX, Cross Country

or Enduro and he always has a big smile on his face as

he overtakes you on on the back wheel over the gnarliest

rocks…

Kirsten Landman is one lady who you can NEVER rule out.

One of SA’s most experienced riders – with Roof and the

Mighty Dakar under her belt, Kirst is taking on the boys in

E2 again and it’s going to be awesome to watch. Interestingly,

after vowing never to do it again – she freely admits

that Dakar is a drug and she plans to enter in the Original

By Motul Class next year.

We look forward to seeing this lot at the races.

Purdon takes double first blood at Terra Topia.

Splendid racing, excellent fields and a little controversy on the side were highlights of

an action packed 2021 South African National Motocross Championship season opener

at Terra Topia in Diepsloot, Gauteng on Saturday. But it was national MX1 champion,

Cathcart EP hero Tristan Purdon and his Red Bull KTM who stole the headlines with

overall victory in both the 15-bike strong MX1 and MX2 races.


Purdon will have the championship leaders’ red plates

on both his machines when he arrives at his home

province, Rover races in Port Elizabeth after fighting

back to win the second open class MX1 race, and a

dominant double in the quarter-litre MX2 motos.

Holeshot king Johan Vogelsang took the early

opening heat MX1 lead with Tinswalo Yamaha rider

Anthony Raynard in pursuit before Jesse Wright’s

Out of Africa Monster Energy Yamaha took over. But

David Goosen was soon on the move after biding his

time on his maiden outing aboard his new Rockstar

Energy Husqvarna and he soon passed Raynard and

then fought Wright before moving ahead for the win.

Purdon meanwhile extracted his KTM from the pack

after a middling start to move up and follow Goosen

home from Raynard, Wright and KTM lads, SA OR3

Cross Country champion Bradley Cox and Jayden

Proctor.

SA MX1 champion Purdon made no mistakes in the

second moto, while Raynard beat Goosen to second

ahead of Wright, Cox and Proctor.

So Purdon heads to PE with a two point lead over

Goosen, with Raynard in close attendance.

Tristan Purdon MX 1

Overall 50 cc Trenton Kretzmann

Hoffman’s Yamaha teammate Hayden Tully ended up

second, while KTM duo Miguel de Waal and Mark-Anthony

Filip also moved ahead of Hoffman who slipped to

fifth ahead of Luke Grundy’s Husqvarna. De Waal then

sped to the second moto win from Tully, Mlimi, Grundy,

Hoffman and Filip. That sees de Waal and Mlimi in the

joint championship lead, with Tully and Grundy in close

attendance en route to the Port Elizabeth second round.

A monster 30 bike entry lined up for the 85cc races as

65cc graduate Trey Cox took the holeshot aboard his

Red Bull KTM before holding Lucca Mynhardt’s KTM,

Emmanuel Bako on a GasGas and Husqvarna trio Wian

du Plooy, Neil van der Vyver and Jordan van Wyk’s

Husqvarna to win Pro Mini. Mynhardt then took the

second moto from van der Vyver, Bako, du Plooy, Cox

and van Wyk, to score the Rider of the Day award and

free entry to the PE weekend.

Matthew Correia led Tyler Petersen and Ashton Martin

to an opening heat small-wheel 85cc Junior KTM 1-2-3,

with Caden Weise’s Husqvarna the interloper ahead of

Kassim Hassim and Andrew Venter on two more KTMs.

Petersen then won the second race from Andrea

Mynhardt’s KTM, Correia, Hassim, Martin and Venter to

see Petersen and Correia split by just two points.

Purdon then took his turn to take a come from behind

opening 250cc MX2 win from Red Bull KTM teammate

Cameron Durow. He entertained in a dice with

Raynard and the closing Goosen’s Husqvarna, ahead

of Dalton Venter’s Yamaha and Jayden Proctor on

a KTM. Purdon then made it a double over Goosen,

Raynard, Durow, Venter and Leonard du Toit to take

a strong early title lead over Goosen, Raynard and

Durow, who are split by a point.

Yamaha duo, over-30s senior man Grant Frerichs

and over-40 Masters Champion Ian Topliss diced

hard for the first MX3 win.

Dwayne Kleynhans’ KTM and Deon du Toit on a

Kawasaki were next up in over 30s and Jaco Smit’s

KTM and Bruce Viljoen completed the over 40 podium.

Frerichs then held Kleynhans off to win in race 2 with

Topliss topping the over 40 field in third as Frerichs

and Topliss took their respective classes for the day.

The Ladies Motocross status quo was intact after the

first heat as dominant 2020 champion Kayla Raaff

was back up to her old tricks on her Kawasaki ahead

of Leah Heygate’s KTM, Husqvarna sisters Jadene

and Cheyenne de Lima and Dakota Grobbelaar’s Kawasaki.

But it was all change in heat 2 as a delighted

Heygate pulled one over Raaff, Jadene, Cheyenne

and Grobbelaar, to head to Nelson Mandela Bay in

April in the joint title lead with Raaff.

The school kid motocross action was not only fraught

between packed grids on track, but there was ample

action off it...

Not so much in the 125cc High School class that saw

27 machines line up at the gate as Jonathan Mlimi

picked up where he left off in High School motocross.

He took a couple of laps to reel in and pass Ethan

Hoffman’s Out of Africa Monster Energy Yamaha and

clear off to win the opening heat on his Red Bull KTM.

Anthony Raynard Mx 2

David Goosen Mx 1

Ian Topliss Mx 3

Neil van der Vyver 3rd overall Pro Mini

MX 4 Ladies Kayla Raaff

Miguel De Waal 26 battling Jono Mlimi

There was drama in the Pro Mini races as a trio of

midfield riders were excluded for ‘jumping under yellow

flags’, a factor that would have a far more drastic effect

on the 65cc results as another heartening 28 riders lined

up for the start.

GasGas rider Blade Tilley made a forceful move to

pass Jack Pullen’s Husqvarna as those two came home

ahead of Trent Valsecchi’s KTM. But all three were

excluded for jumping under yellow flag conditions...

Which meant that fourth placed rider Blake Frost took

the win on his KTM, ahead of Aiden Henley’s Yamaha

and Husqvarna trio Sven Larsen, Nicol Smit and Alex

Cooper.

Tilley and Pullen were back in charge as they took the

second moto 1-2 ahead of Frost, Henley, Valsecchi and

Smit to leave Frost, Henley and Smit in that

championship lead. This should now prove an

intriguing title table to watch...

A strong field of 25 baby class 50cc motocrossers is

always a good sign. Champion, Trenton Kretzman

and his Husqvarna wasted no time to move ahead of

Rayden Woolls’ GasGas for the win.

KTM kids Maxwell Fourie, Ross Mackenzie, Aiden

Retief and Travis Liddell followed. As it was in other

classes, Woolls struck back to beat Kretzmann in moto

2 and go even in the title chase. Casper van Zyl’s KTM

was third from Retief, Fourie and Ross MacKenzie.

There was more to be positive about beyond great fields

and brilliant racing at Terra Topia.

It is excellent to see an increased presence of brands

like Kawasaki among the KTMs, Husqvarna’s and

Yamahas, and the arrival of GasGas just so cool!

It seems That Motocross is certainly back on the up in

South Africa.

The second round of the 2021 National Motocross

Championship goes down at Rover in Port Elizabeth

Saturday 3 April.

How to build a National

MX Race Bike

We visited KTM Headquarters and interfered while the guys

assembled MX1 Champ Tristan Purdons 2021 450SX…

The idea behind this feature is twofold:

First to show you what goes in to assembling a bike from a crate

before it makes its way onto the dealers showroom floor – and

secondly to showcase what extra stuff goes in to the SA champs

bike for the 2021 season….

Simply put, there is nothing quite as cool as uncrating a brand

new bike. We can wax lyrical about it – the promise of days and

years of excitement behind the bars and an escape from our every

day mundane existence. And, quite frankly - it’s cool.

There is nothing better than a fresh, brand new bike. Full stop.

Every month, we harass the importers for stuff that we can feature in

the magazine. It’s often a challenge to find new, fresh content – and

importers are beholden to what they have in stock at the time – and

who is on the receiving end of our emails and requests.

This month, KTM came up with a great suggestion. They are in the

throes of assembling and preparing bikes for the 2021 race season.

They smelt a bit of free labour and invited us along to come and assist

with the assembly of this machine.


So bright eyed and bushy tailed we were ushered into

KTM’s technical centre where most of the magic happens.

Interestingly – although we have been in the trade

for a good long while, we picked up quite a few tips and

tricks from KTM’s very experienced Race Team

Technician Kevin Tyrer. He has had an interesting career

that includes working alongside names like Tyler Rattray

and time spent abroad working on many of the MX GP

teams.

So he really knows his stuff. We enjoyed the fact that Mr

Purdon was alongside him swinging spanners on his race

bike and a quick four of five hours passed in a blur of

bench racing.

We’ll start at the beginning and try to explain how this

assembly line works – and we’ll feature some of the high

end stuff that goes onto a bike like this.

• KTM Motorcycles arrive with a disassembled

front end in the crate. The first job is to unbox

and the bike is placed onto the workbench.

• Before assembly even starts, the guys removed

all of the standard plastics. These are placed in

bubble wrap and boxed.

• With the bike completely stripped, Kevin pro

duced two WP branded boxes containing very

special suspension components. Up front they

mounted a set of WP AER48 Cone Valve Forks

For the 2021 season. Tristan will be making use of WP’s

very latest high - end tech in the form of new 2021 Xact

Pro shock out back. We asked him about the aftermarket

bits – and why he could not run with the stock equipment.

“It’s all about adjustability” he says. The standard stuff is

excellent for everyone – but these components just make

the bike that much better and more competitive. It’s about

keeping the wheel on the ground and finding maximum

traction.” Something interesting. The WP forks are made

to fit all KTM models. Only the shimstack (washers) inside

the forks differ from model to model. The guys drop the

forks slightly through the triple clamps. “For sandy tracks,

I leave the forks in their usual place. This gives the bike a

slightly longer trail to find traction. But on the hard pack, I

drop them a bit to allow the bike to turn a bit quicker.

• Once the suspension is in, Kevin turns his

attention to the brakes and wheels.

KTM has an amazing variety of products in their Powerparts

catalogue. The standard black wheels are removed

and a set of Factory Edition Dirt Star wheels are rolled in

from the back, complete with orange anodised hubs and

Pirelli sand tyres.

• The rear brakes are left alone – the guys reckon

that they are perfect out-of-the box, but

the front gets a bit of attention in the form of an

oversized Moto-Master floating disc. The floating

tech prevents the disc from getting damaged

because it allows a bit of flex should there be a

bollie. The Oversize makes sense –

more surface area for braking and they cool a bit

quicker than the stock fare.

• Then it’s onto the nitty gritty. The battery is fitted

– a Lithium Ion unit that weighs less than your

gloves. The footpegs are mounted. All of the

stock sliders, chain guide, disc protector, frame

protectors and plastic bits are removed and

replaced with orange components from

the power parts catalogue. This bike is literally a

rolling catalogue for trick KTM stuff.

• The standard clutch cover comes off and is re

placed with a stronger Hinson unit.

• Once the wheels are on, Kevin removed the

standard chain. It’s a good brand, so we asked

why he would do that. “The standard is

an excellent choice, but we like the gold anodized

chain by DID. It looks the part – and we find that

it rolls easier than the other chains we’ve tried.

Less rolling resistance equals more speed.”

• Once the wheels are fitted – another box arrives

from the warehouse containing a gorgeous iridium

FMF slip on. “The standard pipe for the KTM

450SX is perfect, but the FMF just looks the part,

and the pipe gives the bike just a little bit more

bottom end” says Kevin.

• He then turns his attention to the radiators and

drains all of the pre delivery coolant and removes

the right hand unit. “We like to run a fan on

Tristans bike, and KTM has a plug and play unit. I

set the fan in such a way that the moment the

bike reached a certain temperature, the fan kicks

in to keep things cool.” We

asked about the chances of the fan getting

knocked off in a moto or getting snarled up during

a really muddy race. “No chance. It sits really

well tucked away behind the radiator and to date

we have never had one get snarled up.” The bike

comes pre wired to accept the fan, so it

was a pretty quick fit. The radiator is replaced and

Kev tops up with Motorex Coolant. He then fits the

fins and covers the whole lot with some

netting bags. “It’s a KTM powerpart that does a

great job at keeping muck out of the radiators and

it does not block airflow at all. MX or Enduro,

everyone should use them.”

• While this is all going on, Tristan is messing about

with handlebars. “I like Renthal bars. I like the

bend and I have been racing with the same type

since I was a kid.” The guys remove the

rubber dampers in the triple clamps and

replace them with aluminium units. “Sure – we

sacrifice a bit of damping, but changing the inserts

just makes it all a bit stronger for national level”

says Kevin. “Tristan likes a more aggressive

stance, so we mount the bar clamps in the forward

position – it suits his riding style.” The stock ODI

grips and all of the switches are transferred to the

new bars.

• Remember we told you about KTM’s Bluetooth

app for adjusting power curves via your smart

phone? That unit is mounted in the handlebar

pad for the standard bars and plugs into the dash.

With the Renthal bars, they tuck it in behind the

number board.

• It’s time for the finishing touches. Out of another

box, another set of blank plastics appear

and are fitted to the bike. Fitting decals is just

about one of our worst jobs – these guys dressed

the bike in about 15 minutes flat with a custom kit

from the guys at Bandit signs.

It takes about ten minutes and once activated, the bikes warranty

starts.

“OK all done let’s see.” He tickles the starter and the big 450

rumbles to life. Such a cool feeling, a brand new bike – as close to

factory as you’ll get in SA.

Running the bike in takes about an hour – and during that time,

Kevin and Tristan swapped notes and played with all of the

suspension settings to get optimal drive. And it was fascinating to

watch. Tristan goes out, does a lap or two and comes back in, the

screwdrivers come out, Kevin fiddles a bit and off he goes. Another

lap or two – and back in. Constant feedback and testing like this

takes time, but he is grinning!

An hour in, the assembly oil is replaced and then the fun really

starts.

“There is always something special about a new bike – and this one

feels really, really good!” “I cannot wait for the first national!”

www.ktm.com

We asked if they touch the engines. “Nope. The SX 450 is

perfect out of the box.”

“Should we start her?” asks Kevin. Well – you can’t sit and

watch a four hour odd build without hearing the final result.

“Ok hang on a sec” – and he wanders back into the warehouse,

returning with a laptop like jobby. You cannot just

start a new four-stroke KTM out of the box. It needs to be

activated by your dealer. All of the information about your

bike is stored “In The Cloud”. Once it’s plugged in – the fuel

pumps etc all start kicking in.


STORMING

‘Stroms over Breedts Nek

Words: Sean Hendley, Glenn Foley, Kyle Lawrenson

Pics: Stefan vd Riet (Black Rock CS)

The guys from Suzuki called us the other day. Hey guys – how would

you like to join us for a day of adventure on our V-Stroms. And while

you are at it, where do you suggest we go to showcase the bikes

abilities as an adventurer – and please include us on your next Gyppo

Work outride…

We decided that a trip up Breedts Nek after the rain was in order and

that our next Gyppo work ride will be out to Val on the 16th Of Feb

and we proceeded to point these big girls at the vast open spaces

available to our lucky Gauteng adventurers…

Sean shares his views:

Do you have to donner all the way to Sani Pass to ride a really great

and technical off-road mounain pass?

Is the V-Stom as good in the dirt as it is on the road?

Do you need 21” and 18” wheels to be able to ride proper adventure

trails?


Well, the answers in short order – No, A resounding YES and as

we pointed out a few issues ago – No.

We took a couple of Suzuki’s new DL 1050 XT V-Stroms as well

as the outgoing DL 1000 V-Strom, (which they still have a few in

stock at really great pricing), up Breedts Nek, riding mostly tar

from Suzuki SA’s head office in Linbro Park through The Cradle

to Hekpoort before hitting the dirt for lots of fun.

Our group of riders for the day were a mix of complete beginners,

good intermediate riders and some really talented riders. The

route included Freeway touring, a bit of bumper bashing through

early morning week day traffic, an impromptu drag race or two

between the outgoing and current model, some knee dragging

through The Cradle and Hekpoort pass onto some quite decent

little dirt roads between the farm lands in the shadows of the

Magaliesberg, complete with the odd mud monster. Then was the

climb up and over Breedts Nek.

SCAN and WATCH

TRAVELING THE ROAD

LESS TRAVELED

A perfect day in the saddle.

Breedts Nek in the Magaliesberg, is less than an hour out of

Jo’burg – and at the moment, it is every bit as challenging,

exciting and as beautiful as the top 3 kilometres of Sani.

After all the rain we have had, the mountains and the valleys

are lush and green, the dams are full and wild life is abundant

everywhere, we saw squirrels, a couple a Duikers, Baboon, lots

of monkeys and species of birds than what we were unable to

identify.

There are lekker look out points with spectacular views, great

little trails that wander over the mountain, down into the valleys,

caves to see and most noticeably very little in the way of litter.

Best of all – the pass is a public road – so if you behave and be

lekker – nobody will come and give you grief.

There is evidence here and there of the odd braai fire where adventurers

might have slept out - all in all a really amazing place

to spend a few hours exploring or stay over at one of the great

lodges in the area and become really well acquainted with this

beautiful part of our country.

When we got to the top of the pass we found two Suzuki

Jimneys waiting for us, complete with a cooler box full of ice

cold drinks to enjoy. Africa is a tough place…

About the bikes.

We were quite excited about the updates on the new V-Strom

1050. We love the new old-school styling taken from the DR

Big a few generations ago. It gives the bike a more muscular

adventury all round appearance. We have to give a nod to the

colour schemes too.

Suzuki’s V-Strom range currently available in South Africa is

the DL 650, last years model DL 1000 and the all new DL 1050

XT.

The DL’s are all liquid cooled, fuel injected 90 degree V twin

motors with oodles of torque with wet sumps and mated to 6

speed gearboxes, standing on inverted oil dampened forks

and linkage type rear suspension with a 19” wheel with twin

brake discs out front and a 17’ rear wheel and single rotor.

Final drive is via traditional chain and sprockets.

SUZUKI DL1050 XT V Strom

FROM R221 950

@MotorcycleSA

T’s & C’s Apply


They all have varying degrees of electronics packages on board

with the 1050XT sporting the most comprehensive package

in the range. All mounted to a slim, twin-spar aluminum-alloy

frame, providing a smooth ride, and a sporty riding experience

when pushed hard, and an aluminum swingarm set to a length

to provide straight-line stability and cornering stability. All the

bikes were shod with 80/20 road bias tyres and one with full

road tyres.

If memory serves correctly, Suzuki was the first to fit a sports

bike engine into an adventure chassis from their TL1000 and

that is basically the same engine they have stuck with refining

it a bit here and there and then upgrading the electronics along

the way.

The proverbial “They” say that, “If it ain’t broken don’t fix it.”

Well this motor is very certainly not broken with arm stretching

acceleration when spanked on the tar and achieving some fairly

impressive top speeds.

Along the way and through the generations the big DL, (I really

do wish they had stuck with DR like the DR -BIG’s of old), has

trimmed down a lot of its girth without losing any of its comfort

or wind protection. They have also managed to modernise the

old DR Big look, bringing bang up to date but still very recognisable

as the off spring of the DR Big’s.

For many years my wife rode a 750cc DR Big, so both of us

were instantly in love the minute we saw the first DL 1050 XT.

A point of contention for some riders is the fact the the 1050XT

is somehow hamstrung by the fact that it has a 19”/17” wheel

combo.

Sorry and excuse me, but the best-selling Adventure bike in this

country only comes in that wheel configuration, so that is just a

bollocks argument. The other advantage of this wheel combo is

there are a lot more tyres available in this sizing at much more

reasonable pricing.

Another advantage is high speed stability on the tar, where, let’s

be brutally honest and that like most 4x4’s and SUV’s, is where

the majority adventure bikes spend most of their time.

A case in point as far as the stability is on the way to The Cradle

we had to dodge traffic down Malibongwe. While lane splitting,

(which is legal - go check out the Road Traffic Act), and sweeping

through a long left hander, a knob in a Polo decided he

would try and push me into aRun X to the right of me.

I had to take evasive action and get really intimate with the Run

X taking out his left side mirror, fortunately he was an absolute

gentleman, saw what was happening and also tried to give me

as much space as possible and when we stopped to exchange

details and etc he was super friendly and told me not worry

about the missing cover on his mirror and just go and enjoy the

rest of the ride, (Sir, if you are reading this I am still more than

willing to pay for the repairs, my contact details are in the front

of the mag).

All the while the 1050 did not falter, even though my butt was

clutching at the seat.

Even when hooking the side mirror with the handle bar the bike

remained completely stable.

The now slim and sexy lines of the DL 1050 also make it a

whole lot easier to scoot between rush hour traffic safely. Ok

most of them. The one that was fitted with side panniers was

decidedly more cumbersome.

Getting into the twisty’s around The Cradle and Hekpoort it was

great fun playing with the throttle and brakes, diving into the

bends and accelerating out the other side trying to scrape the

pegs and drag knees. Being an older rider I grew up chucking

upright bikes through these bends, so I was quite pleased with

how the big DL railed through the corners. The rear shock was

set a bit soft and was squatting down and pushing the front

around a bit, but that was quickly sorted with a couple of turns

on the dial.

Once we hit the dirt it was game on. Initially

standing up was a bit cramped for my large

frame, but a quick adjustment to the handle

bars, rolling them up a bit, soon sorted that

out. With all the mud and water we were

hitting, the rubber foot peg inserts became

a bit slick and needed an Allen key to

remove them.

Hooking up over the rocky climbs with severe

water erosion, loose shale, Magalies

marbles and the like was surprisingly easy

and that much fun that we made several

trips to the bottom and back up again just

for the jol of it. At no point did I want for

a lighter bike, or bigger wheels or more

aggressive tyres.

Common practice for ‘hardcore manne’

adventure riders is to deflate the tyres to

supposedly get more grip, at no point did I

even consider this option, mainly because

the DL’s were so capable with such

beautifully controlled power from the engine.Deflating

tyres over rocky sections is

how you bend rims and get impact punctures.

I am on the heavier side of 100kg’s, (realistically

closer to 115kg’s), and bar the few

turns on the rear shock dial I did not find a

need for any fancy suspension set up, not

once did the front Pogo on me or try chuck

me over the bars, yes there were one or

two occasions where I hit some obstacles

pretty frikkin’ hard and they did bottom out,

but that was the exception rather than the

norm and more my lack of talent than any

lack of ability from the DL’s.

After a day of fun in the sun we took the

short way back to the tar, which is the long

way on the tar back to the office and a

fantastic way to check out the V-Stroms

touring comfort.

I dialed in the simple cruise control and sat

back to watch the scenery float by, most

of the time with one hand off the bars and

leaning my elbows on the tank using my

body weight to glide through the corners,

occasionally messing around with the

electronics package to see how it all works.

At this point in life I find myself needing

reading glasses and I did find the digital

display quite busy and a little bit difficult to

read without my spec’s, but cannot fault the

DL 1050 XT on anything else.

It is fast, handles brilliantly in any terrain, it

is comfortable … even for my lanky frame

and it is very good looking and stands out

from the crowd of big boxers on South

African roads.

Glenn says …

I have ridden every edition of Suzuki’s

V-Strom and I have always liked these

bikes. To be fair – sometimes the styling

has got a bit weird but, in my opinion,

nobody can fault the new design - the bikes

in their new livery look fantastic. Climbing

aboard the bike feels so familiar –

like visiting an old friend.

There is an Elephant in the room – and we would be remiss to not make mention of it.

In an attempt to keep costs down, Suzuki missed the opportunity to appoint the bike

with all the latest tech that people have almost come to expect at this level.

The most obvious omissions are a TFT screen and the absence of a quickshifter.

If you take the time to read my stuff – you’ll know that I’m the kind of guy who prefers

less. I find all of the electronic gadgetry on todays bikes mind boggling and distracting

to say the least. I prefer a bike that you can just get onto and ride without wondering

about what is switched on and off and… you get the idea.

The latest Suzuki V-Strom does give you a lot though. Two types of ABS intervention,

on- and off-road, cornering traction control, a hill hold braking system that helped a

lot whenever we did U-Turns up on the pass. There’s also Slope Dependant Control

(stops you flipping it if you’re flying down a hill and feel you need to apply all the front

brakes all at once). And then there’s cruise control.

Three rider modes, One, Two, and Three. One is the quickest with the least TC interference,

so our bike lives there. And it is all really simple to use and that’s cool!

We’ve had the Suzuki here for more than a month now – and here are a few thoughts.

• The 90-degree V-twin motor is bigger, obviously. It now puts out 106 horses

and 100Nm of smooth torque. On the road or in the dirt is delivers fantastic

useable power. And when you whip her, she rapidly climbs to the 200KPH

mark with finesse. And it’s a Suzuki so you just know that it’s going to last.

• This bike is just so comfortable. They paid attention to rider ergonomics – and

we’ll say that for long hours in the saddle you’ll need to go a long way to beat

this one. That includes pillions – of all the bikes we bring home – this is the

one that the Mrs likes to tour on the most.

• Sure there’s no TFT screen but - I like the dash. I’d say that I even preferred

the previous gen DL1000’s. It gives lots of information and is easy to read.

• Love the fact that a main stand and crash protection is standard. Yes one of

our guys dropped the first one – and the crash bars took the hit…

• 400 KMs odd to a full tank. That’s sensible stuff right there for any adventure

rider.


Conclusions:

The more we ride it, the more we like it.

Our intention with this here feature was to try to tell you what it’s

like to like with these bikes.

Fast? Yes it’s a 1050cc Japanese bike. Of course!

Comfortable? One of the most neutral, comfortable bikes out

there.

Road? Absolutely a first class ride with excellent road manners,

suspension and brakes.

Dirt? Amazingly capable – largely thanks to that user friendly

V-Twin engine. She is a 1000cc adventurer so just remember

that – but all of our riders got to the top and back down with huge

smiles on our faces.

Whether you opt for the more cost effective older gen DL1000

or the new 1050, you won’t be sorry. Back to back, the bikes are

just so close – the new one just has the edge in performance and

midrange.

If you are in the market for a big ADV then this is one that you

need to ride.

Chat to your Suzuki Dealer.

Don’t tell anyone but we’ve managed to hang on to one or two of

them for a bit and will be using them on our GYPPO Work

Tuesday ADV ride on the 16th of February. Come along and we

will let you have a little ride on them.

Everyone’s welcome limited spots.

SCOOP TEST

HONDA’S

CRF 300L

HONDA’S NEW

CRF300 L

When Honda told us that we could have the new CRF300L for

the weekend, we were curious. Would it be like the old 250L –

good – but old tech – or would it be like the 450L which was

slightly underpowered. It’s neither.

Our Glenn Foley shares his thoughts…

Pics, Tristan Foley.

It seems to me as if Honda has employed the services of some

European designers – because… in my humble opinion, Honda

currently builds some of the sexiest dirtbikes on the planet.

This little trail bike is no exception – thoroughly modern with

smooth, flowing lines.

Add this to the fact that – well, it’s a Honda, usually as reliable as an

anvil. But that’s all good and well.


A bike can be good looking and all

that – but how does it go?

On any weekend, you’ll find our

lot out and about on the myriad of

trails around Gauteng – and Sunday

seemed like a good time to tackle

some of the farmlands – kids on

dirtbikes and dad on the new 300.

Plenty of snide comments like –

“Don’t worry Dad! We’ll wait for you

at all the corners, we’ll push you up

slip n slide hill” – and the usual jibes

that are associated with taking out a

bike that is not purely a dirtbike.

Clutch out at 6h30 – and the kids

push their noisy bikes past the

neighbours gates.

Dad on the 300 quietly rumbles past

quietly with a fat grin on his kisser.

Dad 1. Kids zero!

Out into the veld and off we go. It’s

not really a race… Ok it’s ALWAYS a

race as soon as you get two or more

bikes together – and even dad was

having his doubts about staying out

front. Muddy trails greeted us after

all the Gauteng rain – and the lack

of traction from the more trail biased

tyres on the 300L becomes

apparent.

Visions of flinging this brand new

bike down the road jumped in to

mind, so we turned off the gas just a

little…

An all new bike?

More power, more suspension, less

weight.

This is a trail bike – and not an out

and out dirt machine. It is designed

to ride on the road as well as in the

dirt. And it does both – really, really

well.

Here is all the techy stuff that you

might want to know. All relative to the

250L. If you don’t want to know what

they have done, skip on down to the

ride impressions.

Big Red’s smallest street-legal CRF

model is now called the CRF300L to

reflect the approximate 15-percent

engine size increase over the 250L.

Honda’s goal with the 300 was to

increase power, improve off-road

performance, and reduce weight.

Big Red sought to accomplish that

by upping the displacement by 36cc,

adding suspension travel and ground

clearance, and decreasing the

overall weight by just under 5KG’s.

Beginning with the CRF250L engine,

Honda increased its stroke by 8mm (for

a total of 63mm) and left the 76mm bore

as is. The resulting 286cc displacement

brought about the model name change

to CRF300L. The camshaft lift and timing

were revised to increase bottom-end and

midrange output.

Other updates to the engine include the

six-speed box featuring updated gear

ratios with closer spacing in the lower

gears and wider spacing in the higher

gears, a new assist/slipper clutch that

is designed to provide an approximately

20-percent lighter clutch pull and

improved performance during aggressive

downshifting, a new exhaust system with

a lighter header pipe and silencer which

are said to reduce sound.

The frames lateral rigidity is decreased

by 25 percent to improve the bike’s

maneuverability and rider feel. The

downtube is 30mm narrower, the

downtube gusset is smaller, the main

pipe is 20mm shorter, and the diameter

of the cradle tubes has been reduced by

3.2mm. The lower triple clamp material

has been switched from steel to

aluminum, which reduces weight.

A 1.2-inch increase in ground clearance

was achieved by revisions to the frame

and crankcase designs.

The swingarm has been redesigned with

23 percent less lateral rigidity and 17

percent less torsional rigidity.

BE THERE.

WHEREVER THAT IS.

ALL NEW

CRF300L

ARRIVING SOON

www.honda.co.za


The width near the pivot has been decreased

by 15mm, while the cross section has been

revised to deliver a more uniform distribution of

twist to offer a better feel and more predictable

handling. According to Honda, the swingarm’s

weight has also been reduced.

Suspension wise, the Showa 43mm inverted

fork and Showa shock are retained, but the

stroke has been boosted, which gives the bike

10.2 inches of wheel travel at both ends. A new

rear link and connecting rod are employed, and

the suspension settings have been revised.

To improve rider input and the bike’s

maneuverability, the CRF300L’s handlebar

bend has been increased for what Honda

describes as “a more natural elbow position”

and lighter steering. Handlebar weights are

standard. They reduce vibration. The front

area of the seat is narrower, the footpegs have

been moved back a bit. No TFT screen just

yet yet, but up front, Honda gives you an easy

to read digital display, that includes the bike’s

speed, rpm reading, a clock, and a few new

functions such as gear position, fuel mileage,

and fuel consumption.

The brakes got some attention in the form of a

new rear brake master cylinder, while the black

aluminum rims are now polished, which

according to Honda makes them easier to

clean. The side stand is said to be stronger

and its foot plate is 10-percent larger. For more

weight reduction, the bike gets a thinner rear

sprocket, affixed with smaller bolts (M8 getting

the nod over the prior M10 size) and a hollow

rear axle shave.

Ride Impressions:

A few questions have already been asked of us

when people saw that we had the bike.

I’ll try – without gushing to explain exactly what

it would be like to own a bike like this.

Everything about this bike just feels right.

Clutch actuation is so soft and the gearbox is

butter smooth. Rider comfort and

ergonomics is excellent – they really have put

a lot of thought into it. The seat is plush and

standing or sitting for riders of all sizes is

spot-on!

Dirt:

This bike is great. Real fun to ride. It handles

really, really well, whether you are plodding along

checking your mealies, or chasing the kids. The

suspension leans towards the plush side – but

even when we took the odd jump, we had no

horrible bottoming out sensations.

Everything is forgiving without any crazy

aggression. The tyres are a bit of a limiting factor,

especially with the trails being so slick at the

moment – but if you are going to ride this bike for

its intended purpose they are spot-on.

We rode through our little river out back here –

tackled slip n slide and even did a few quick laps

around our lockdown enduro trail – and the 300

absolutely styled through it all.

Sure! It’s no dirtbike. But it’s one of the most

capable, fun to ride little Dual purpose bikes that

we’ve tested to date.

It’s not overly tall – my 12 year old son traded his

250X for a bit and managed to get his feet down

easily. The power is solid and unintimidating – and

the handling is really impressive.

Conclusions:

The word “lekker” keeps coming to mind.

We fully expected to be – well a bit bored – and

not one of us was.

Tall Sean only took a small ride but he came home

commenting on how smooth, comfortable and

torquey the bike feels.

Kyle, our in-house fast rider also grinned. “The

more this bike runs in, the better it gets! A lot

peppier than the 250. Really comfortable with

great throttle response for blitzing through traffic.”

As for the kids – well – they didn’t want to give it

back…

This really is a bike for everyone.

At your Honda dealer soon.

Price: TBA

Impressed? You bet! This little bike is a winner.

But the biggest win is the 300 engine. It is far

more peppy than the old 250, with great torque

all the way from the bottom and excellent gear

ratios for tar or dirt - and best of all – unlike

Honda’s 450L, they have not constipated or

limited the bike at all!

Road:

Comfortable. Peppy. Smooth. Unintimidating –

without being boring!

The engine does not produce any untoward

buzzing – just smooth performance.

The bike accelerates really nicely through the

gears and grabs a top speed of 125 with this

guys fat ass in the saddle And she will trundle

along happily at the 110kph mark. There is

sufficient torque to pop the odd wheelie (That’s

really important!) and delivers very neutral,

natural road handling.


Making Tuesdays FUN...

Gyppo Work Tuesday Adventure ride to Val Hotel

So, Tuesdays really are that nothing day in the week.

Mondays are usually babbelaas days for most of us,

even the Boom Town Rats sang “ I don’t like Mondays”,

Wednesday are known as ‘Hump Day’ or ‘Klein Vrydag’

and everybody goes out for a mini jol thus making

Thursday the next babbelaas and then we are into the

weekend. Leaving Tuesday as the least inspiring day of

the week. We here at the magazine explore many of the

routes while testing reviewing bikes and travels through

some of the most amazing bits of our country when most

of the popular routes a dead quite.

So we decided in 2019 to host the first Gyppo Tuesday

ride and invite a bunch of people to experience what we

do. The first Gyppo Tuesday was a roaring success and

the intention was to host one every 3 months or so …

but then Covid happened. With the slight relaxing of the

pandemic protocols we hooked up with Suzuki S.A. and

put together the “Whiskey Train” Adventure ride out to

the cool little hamlet of Val.

The inimitable Mr Aprilia Uncle Phil De Gruchy had this to

say;


Cycle Technology ccT/A

The idea of adventure bike rides had been mooted for some time

by the management of Dirt and Trail magazine and eventually on

the 16th of February the oakes got motivated and promoted and

organised what will be the post pandemic genesis of many more

planned events catering for adventure riders in Gauteng and

nearby provinces. The turnout on the day was phenomenal with

some riders from North West and Limpopo joining the “Vaalies”

for the day.

I don’t think anyone expected so many participants (‘specially the

organisers).

The start venue was at a quaint little pozi called Die Opstal

Koffiehuis in Brakpan and I’m sure the owners and staff were

gobsmacked with the number of riders arriving and somehow

managed to cope with serving the hungry hordes of bikers with

boerseun sized cheese, scrambled eggs and wors rolls and

chips. After breakfast we gathered for group photos with the

manne from Suzuki bringing along the new V Strom XT 1050cc

models for testing and evaluation later in the day at the Val Hotel

where everyone could test ride these new models from Suzuki .

A great initiative by the importer to get involved.

We then were briefed and told that we’d be divided into two

groups , with the fast oakes who would try and keep the road

captain Kyle Lawrenson in sight and the “ old ballies“ were to be

shepherded by Glenn, Corinne and Sean at a more sedate pace,

not too far behind.

So off we went, and as the ride progressed it got a bit

confusing, as we were told to follow the leader who was

unfortunately indistinguishable from a hundred other

riders…

And at intersections nobody was quite sure who to follow

and had guys going in different directions for a while.

However I’m sure my comments to the road captains,

that they should wear yellow vests (Vestes Jaunes ) on

the next ride will hopefully be adopted.

For me, and many others the spectacle of so many

riders in convoy was thrilling, and the sight and sound

of so many riders passing through the main streets of

the little dorpies like Nigel, Balfour and Greylingstad was

the highlight for many onlookers who stared wide eyed

in amazement at these iron horse straddled warriors

rumbling through their little town and then off into the

horizon .

THE ROUTE

I thought the route chosen was ideal for the typical bikes

and riders. Designed with the average weekend rider

in mind and the fact that they mostly ride big KTM’s

and BM’s whose size and weight are quite challenging

in the dirt for the less experienced riders, who were in

abundance and therefore the route was designed to be

interesting yet not dishearteningly technical.

The idea of the Gyppo Tuesday Adventure rides is to

get people riding their bikes for the intended purpose

in a safe, fun and friendly environment and to help

them increase their off road riding skills, however the

lads from Dirt & Trail magazine could not resist

including a small veld section and surprisingly all

seemed to manage without too much difficulty

Heading off into the fast dirt roads around Balfour and

Standerton meant leaving a sensible dust gap to be

able to see the road ahead, but of course some guys

didn’t listen to the briefing and didn’t realise it wasn’t a

race to the finish…

But eventually we arrived at the Val hotel with only two

M.I.A riders due to mechanicals and fortunately no

casualties for the Paramedics to tend to. Our hosts

at the hotel were delighted to have more guests in a

day than they normally have in a month and pampered

us with delicious grub. After a short prizegiving with

Suzuki sponsored goodies we said our goodbyes and

headed off back home to clean our bikes in time for the

next Gyppo Tuesday Ride.

WHY ADVENTURE RIDES?

When you look at the demographics of typical

adventure bike riders, they would definitely fall in to

the more mature category , most having ridden all

sorts of bikes over many years and I would guess

largely self-employed and financially stable as only a

few “sick notes“were requested and a lot of the newer

bonies are not cheap toys . While this craze of riding

adventure bikes is popular worldwide, it is ideally

suited to countries like ours with wide open spaces

and beautiful vistas .

Chatting to the guys on the ride – the general

consensus was that this was a winner – and I hope

that Dirt And Trail does it all again soon.

Cheers!

Uncle Phil.

Initial impressions were that the stance is different – it seemed

uncomfortable or unpleasant. The clocks were laid out fairly soon…

expect them to.




Sadly, when I jumped aboard, the T7 had a flat wheel… so, it
