A pretty conservative machine. A great cruiser. It could smooth out any road and was not too bad off-road. From Jo'burg to Cape Town you could sit quite comfortably at 160 kph most of the way. One had to watch out for the odd cow and that sort of thing. We used to stop for lunch and dinner and depending on where we were headed, we would pitch a small tent at the end of the day and make some dinner, and flatten a bottle of wine. We bought ingredients during the day so they were always fresh, and we cooked a stew on a 'bike size' burner in a suitably sized pot. In the day it all rolled up in a sleeping bag and strapped on behind the seat. No additional 'cases' or anything like that.
