    Hey man,

    I started I started on a 390 Duke. It was a great bike. If it is the split headlight model, go for it. If not, stay away.

    The bike is perfect for your application.

    I love GnG too.

    My XR had it's last rear tyre, chain and sprockets done there. I've also bought my Givi tank bag, my AGV helmet and 2 different visors from them.

    They're a good bunch of guys...

    This guy is a right royal cock. 0 life endangerment. I'd have flipped him off proper.

    Cars don't have to give you a gap at all.

    I did say not really, but the kick one gets from riding a 390 is far greater than an NC. The NC is only good as a commuter. All it offers is a really dull and unentertaining ride.

    The new 390's seem to be fine, the insufficient waterways in the head were resolved in the new revision.

    That being said, I'd honestly go with a BMW 310 for a 1st bike.

    If it's your 2nd bike,...

    Please do NOT buy any entry level boot. I replaced my Forma Pokers after 11 months. See if you can't spend R2500 odd and get Alpinestars Roam 2, helmets I'd recommend the Qualifier DLX.

    The high mileage/grippy options are really only between the Michelin PR4 and the Pirelli Angel GTs.

    The latter compromising on some mileage for grip.

    Dude, magnificent write up!!

    I've got the A/S Windstoppers and the A/S Santiagos. Both help nothing.

    My commuting/waterproof boots are the A/S Roam 2s

    The white one at Fire It Up?

    I like it, but it's not that big a step up from the 390 hey. I rode FIU's Z650 on Monday and I was far from impressed, I'd honestly have an issue free 390 than the...

    With a newbie, lane splitting with a smaller bike will be better. But I split the same, if not better, with the R1200GS.

    You can lower them.

    I promise you, you will regret the smaller motor. I have 1st hand experience.

    Rather spend a bit more and get the F700GS or the NC750.

    These small motors take a beating on the longer commutes.

    On a 125??

    The bike isn't meant for that kind of trip.

    Rather call Fire It Up and ask who they use.

    You've got a problem then.

    Raceworx is by far the cheapest, but they're probably the furthest away.

    See if they can't collect your bike for you. Problem with this is it'll take a 2 days or so....
