lol - what will you use mate? two of those straps that we used to tow you out of West Beach? How many times did those break?

ah - and baby bike is all relative. Ask the DRZ400's out there.

But yes. a man of your height and weight - err. i dont need to say size here do I? needs something like a Katoomer. At R115 000, its a snip

Damn, no my mate, no answers from them, I left messages over the last 2 working days last week on both their cell's and no answer back. I was just beginning to get pissed and dissapointed when at 1020pm Friday night, the mom sms's me to tell me that the 950 didnt arrive Friday and that theyre really dissapointed and that she would call me Saturday. Still no call, but I am wondering what the status quo is.

Must be busy perhaps, cos they are moving into new premises as we speak. Oh well. Dissapointed, and sort of nervous now (hate looking forward to something like this - as much as I do - and then having no ride . I have told myself that in all likelihood, I can get a ride in around a months time perhaps and I'd lke to think I will get surprised before then.

As I write this I get a resurgence of "ag pleeze Daddy wont you let me ride the K-T-M..." happening

thanks for the support tho bro

Either I am just not meant to ride a Katoomer, or the BMW motorbike spirit is messing things up...
