I haven't been on the site for awhile. Sorry about the slow response. Once he gets through his Missionary training and gets his first assigned area Ill let you know where he's at. He will be serving in Johannesburg and Botswana among about 100 other missionaries. I'm sure you have seen them out and about...They probably have even knocked on your door a time or two... At any rate as time gets closer and as I have studied your beautiful country it makes me wish I could come along with him. But this is his experience and part of the reward is to learn life’s lessons with out the parents around. I sure am grateful for your cordial nature. Thanks a bunch!

Hi

It will be quite a climate adjustment, coming here from the big freeze although you should have missed the worst of summer by then. Give me a shout when you are in town I would be happy to show you around. Also like mentioned before check out the Wild Dogs site plenty other Durban riders there.

Hope u have a good time here.

RWC-Pretoria: Please Help

Guys...

I just bought my second motorcycle, and haven't registered it on my name yet.

Two years ago the bike was registered but then the previous owner let it expire, so after I have put the bike on my name, I need to take it for RWC before I can register it on the road again.

The bike has working lights and indicators, no oil leaks and the brakes are just fine. But the problem is, I have a bad feeling the muffler is too loud. I can put a baffle in for R350 but that is time and money wasted that I could have spent on other things. I believe the loud exhaust is a fine safety feature too.

So I need to know if some of you guys know a place in Pretoria where I can have the roadworthy done, but where they would be lenient, tolerant and merciful on my XR noises... Thanks a lot.
