    Re: Game / bird viewing binoculars

    My last three pairs of Bushnell have not lasted a year before the eye pieces started seizing up or falling apart.

    Granted, I'm hard on binoculars, but my Nikons haven't suffered the same fate...

    I came close to buying a pair of Zeiss a few years ago. The glass quality was incredible. I spent half an hour in the shop manoeuvring them around my eyes trying to convince myself that I would get...

    I'd like to try that. I assume (probably wrongly) that you lose some clarity in the stabilisation?

    Re: Adventure Bike

    I have found my next bike - now I just need to convince the owner to part with it.

    Her husband died a few years ago and she is reluctant to sell it - for sentimental reasons I assume.

    Re: Game / bird viewing binoculars

    Nikon Monarch. The glass quality is incredible for the price.

    You do get better, but at a much higher price.

    Re: Sani Pass

    Do it, with caution though. From April it will start drying out and the wind can blow there. You don't want to be starting a veld fire.

    Re: Advice: Buying a 2007 Disco 3

    There is a possibility that the engine will go bang. Statistically probably a higher probability than on any other similar 4x4.

    If it does, you're in for over R100k in repairs.

    Re: Towing down Sani Pass

    Yes it's possible to tow down Sani. The switchbacks at the top are your only real concern; pick your line and start wide so that you don't have to do a three point turn around the bends.

    My Kia Sorento used to do that, and my Amarok does the same. Once they've warmed up there's no problem.
