Title: Wild Dogs at the Dimension Data Campus in Bryanston, JHB?
Post by: Big H on January 13, 2010, 08:28:38 pm

Any other WD's working at the Campus?

And "howzit" to the Wild Dog I ran into on my way home today, going down Sloane and Main Road towards Pretoria after leaving the Campus. Riding a R1150GSA with orange WD stickers on the topbox, WD sticker on the helmet and WD buff around the neck?

A question for the Dogs working in or near the Campus, who commute from and to Centurion/Pretoria every day:

My house is on the Eastern side of the N1, near the SA Munt, and I take the Samrand offramp on the N1. I usually take the N1 to work, but lately I've also tried the Olifantsfontein Road (R562) > R55 > Main Road route.

Which is best? After trying both I still prefer the N1 highway, despite all the roadworks. Which route do you guys take?

must admit that last i heard from them was when their shares tanked

from R110 a share down to something like R10

but that was 6 or 7 years ago

they probably bounced back but is not flaunting it like they use

back in the day they were all over the place - sponsoring everything

now they keep below the radar ???
