58ooo last I looked.

The TKCs, well I must be honest  >:D  I jus look down at my wheels and there they are - not hard to find at all ;D

I am loving them, I now travelling faster around bends and doing things that I did not want to, and going places I should not.

Gonna be a bit of a worry though, When the back is sat, I still have the Serac that I have kept - I wonder if that will perform any less now that I have learned new habits ???

As for the Looking back - Sitting in Vic West alone it was iether that or go out drinking - and I was not thirsty. Tonite I am in Laingsburg and sit here listening to all the trucks go past - Lainsburg Counrty Hotel - right on the N1 - will I sleep tonite - should have brought me earplugs :-\
