For some time I have wanted to rent a bike in SA and travel the mountain passes in the Cape and get into the Cederberg, but I would be by myself and I worry about security. I fear it may never come to pass.

I did a solo 3 month trip around Southern Africa (RSA/Namb/Bot) a few years ago on a rented 1200 GS. "Security" is not any more of an issue than anywhere else.

A primitive, unimproved, one-way track from the Great Smokies National Park through to the Tail of the Dragon.

I find sometimes after riding off road in very dusty conditions my cc won’t switch on. Cleaning the sensor usually corrects it. And of course the cc does not work when you are in Enduro mode.

Hello, you can't drive over the top, you have to go back down the same way. There are many unpaved mountain passes between the border of Italy and France. Watch a video of me about Col de Tende here.

I have a 2020 F750GS and there has been an intermittent cruise control problem since new. The issue remains unresolved, despite being to the dealership on several occasions and for extended periods of time. The CC does various things - sometimes it won't activate, sometimes it will activate and then deactivate almost immediately. When it doesn't activate, after repeated attempts, I turn it off and back on and the symbol sometimes takes up to a minute to appear. The scary thing is that sometimes it will self activate if the unit is switched on. BMW are saying user error, despite the fact that I have another bike with the same CC and have been using it for 6 years with no problems. Love to hear from anyone with similar issues.
