Ya through my mid life crisis, now just a varking grumpy old man.

There is work and there is kak, currently just kak, no intention of taking it out on others, it just happens.

I am at that stage where I would rather like them to tell me to go. There is a big boy retiring in Europe and the games are not fun.

Damn, the FireWall is giving me a hard time accessing WildDogs.
Just before all the problems, I managed to see this:

I am glad I found your post. I am looking to start a thread where all SA Adventurers can come up with a list to contact each other for rides. Know of something already going?

I like exploring, ride technical stuff that supposedly the Daks arent made for , my fave hunting ground is in the Grabouw/Steenbras Dam area in the mooontans. Obviously, I live in the Cape.

So, I am looking for more riding partners, as I start to lose some... due people not wanting to stretch limits Having said that, I am no Jan Du Toit..


Hi! Ek bly in bellville en het a KLR 650 en gan dit nou ruil vir a KTM 640 adventure 1997. Wat dink jy daarvan? Is dit a goeie move. Ek stel belang om meer dirtriding te doen so kontak my gerus. Ek is nog nie so goed soos julle ouens nie maar sien kaans vir a challenge.

Hi Jannie

My Dakar got stolen and then my KTM 950 got driven over by a bakkie so I have no bike right now.

However, yes - get the Ktm 640 cos its an incredibly brilliant dirt bike.

Just get used to the vibrations, and then use loctite as your friend.

Enjoy, welcome to the nuthouse side of things.

also, go to www.wilddogs.co.za for n bietjie suid afrikaners wat heeldag kak praat - on bikes and stuff

cheers!
