    Thanks Chris :thumb , no worries - cos Mav is just a frilly little dress trying to talk tuff.

    You see, in his wildest dreams, it might be me, but it was actually Meraai with her two missing front teeth who was giving him the low down in the loo when he was last on tour here....................

    hehe you crazy bastidges, loveyaall.

    This is the coolest thing about the internet, julle kan so bietkie kak byt with your chinas and meraai's and they still ask you go to go and get them change.... hahahahahahah

    Chris, I think you did great on your first try inthe sand, it was hot and heavy work huh? That will teach you to wear your inner liner on the nice fancy BM jacket in the future!

    hehe Summer is here boyz.................

    YEEHAWWWWWWWWWwww

    ps: today I went to pick up a scooter for this guy here at work, who was a bit scared. It was a 125cc EuroJet, bought for R10K brand new from Harley CT. I walked into the dealership and laughed at everybody (honest).

    The guys would bang up the noise and then nearly fall down when they put their bikes on the side stands. I laughed so hard. I was definately not buying into the pseudo harley cool... for sure. In fact, the guy was at a loss for words cos he couldnt believe I was laughing at him and all the other stoopid bastidges there. Honestly - you could see his mouth hanging open not knowing what to say!

    Which is sad, cos one of the first things I remember about bikers was a guy on a real Harley (back in the early 80's) who was riding and waved to me as a kid when I was travelling in my dads car. I thought he was so cool.

    These days, how many ways can you spell POSER???????

    Heh, Heh Jo,burg is hitting 32C in the shade today Pretoria 36C, I shalll think of you when I have cold cold Castle Draught at lunch time, especially at R9 a pint (500ml) = 80 british pence I reckon. Its such a tough life, no British women wrapped up in jerseys and raincoats, just good home grown South African boobies on display.

    You okes make me so blerrie de moer in now, the best thing to do is to lose me out before i clap you flat :fight

    Hey guys at the end of the day UK ain't that bad and hopefully I can retire a smidge earlier than you fellas and ride around with my bike before I am to old :gerg

    Living here does however mean making sacrifices that no money can replace i.e. family :bueller

    Either way it still nice to know that the KTM guy here phones me every week to find out when am I coming around to test drive the latest bike :pot I do miss the heat though and it just started pissing down outside :bluduh Great news since my rain suit is at home and it's only 27 miles filtering through traffic on my Yamaha XT which acts more like a jet ski than a bike in the wet :deal

    How come we use this thread, it must be across thread somewhere in its history.

    a) Kindly ignore everything after a) the Cold Cold castle draught was excellent.
    b) The excellent homegrowns on sight at lunch could not be ignored but could get me banned here.
    c) My marriage / family is probably only intact because inlaws on both sides are that side of the pond (Wales and Germany).
    e) Me got KTM importer 1 mile frome house, he don,t even talk to me, never mind phoning.
    d) Big fat Welshman doesn,t need a rain suit, not this year anyway its as dry as ... I will think of something comparable.

    Ah well better pack up and wait in the pub for the traffic to die down, not so many conscientious (big word that) traffic orificers here.
