SCOOP - Operator's new toy
« on: March 14, 2008, 11:57:16 am »
SCOOP  - today, at 09h30, Operator took possession of his new toy, a Suzuki Djebel 250XC.   A moment of joy as Operator already secured this particular bike at the start of January and had to wait patiently for its delivery from Japan.

After jetting in from Cape Town he arrived at the bike shop, did the necessary paperwork, jumped into his AGATT, and  immediately got acquainted with his new mistress.  Barton of Track & Tar Motorcycles quickly pointed out the relevant levels and knobs and Operator fired-up the Djebel.  After leading him to the nearest petrol station and escorting him to the N2, I bit him farewell with some envy as I had to rush back to work before the MD noticed my absence.  Then the long trip to the Western Cape started in perfect weather conditions. 
So, any other dawgs travelling between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, be on the lookout for Operator and his new scoot!

Congradulations,  not only on getting a new ride, but for selecting my ride's twin, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Lekker Operator!
Flying down to CT to get my KLR was a story on it's own but the fun part was running it in on all the passes! Something I will always remember.
