plain SLEG. I lost sight of my priorities...and focused on work. This will not happen again. Lola (my TA) will do some serious mileage, and more reports to come. 
Nice.  :thumleft:

Thanks. Much appreciated. The evening before the big mud, the heavens opened over Memel. 170 mm in less than an hour...I'm not joking. But excellent ride. Will recommend Memel to everybody

 :mwink: Hi Mnr Alpenmask, goed om jou aktief te sien. Ek was ook vir 'n wyle af vanaf WD's, maar is weer terug - mis toe mos die ou spul....
Gelukkig is jou TA baie vinniger as jou RR's...
