    PS: Macduff, I have two versions of the same set of clips put together by two different guys in two different ways..... Taken by me and Simon from www.dualsportuk.com and there are a few hairy moments there as well, but alls well that ended well.


    The videos are great, and the music selection even better.

    Wish I could post them here.

    Well done and welcome, Bikes are toys and toys are made to play with.


    Of moet ek se , mooi so, en welkom, Bikes is speelgoed, en speelgoed is daar om mee te speel.


    Enjoy the toy, and keep the reports and pix comming.

    You can also register and show your pix, or a link to www.dualsportuk.com as the guys there also like a good report and a dirty bike (well, most of them )

    Bla Bla, so youre going to fly to Springbok then?:norton

    :roflso come on down and lets show you the ropes down here. There really are some beautiful places down here, that for my money and taste can only be compared with some places in ETvl (remember that place?) and Natal. Beaut stuff.

    So you ride your baby in the dirt? (and I aint talking bout anything else here but the 1200 :evil) Cos if you do, then you must come down and I guess we will have to you acquainted with the sand down here too - ask Lucky Striker for some input there on his 1200.....

    But, come on down its a beautiful place, we got loads to do! Rock n Roll!

    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? :rofl

    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

    :deal:puke1:rofl:evil:cry
