Dealers het nie Photoshop om klein details soos datum imprints te laat verdwyn nie.  :biggrin:
Toe uit met dit, wie is dit? :peepwall:
Mr "Mean" met 'n triumph "Machine" uit Gauteng?...

Hey Mean469 - speak bietjie with Paul there about when he's calling me to collect that Explorer for a weekend...?

He used the Eplorer version if that is what you want to ride?  :biggrin:

Onse oulike liefie Hentie was die eerste dealer toe hy nog by BMW was wat ons om die bos wou lei met die tipe post.

En kyk nou net hoe stunning awesome hy uit gedraai het, almal like hom, self Stoetie en ETS  :biggrin:
Watchit! Ek het nog nooit van die bonzai laaitie gehou nie, ek verdra hom net......... 8) :biggrin:

those pics are of me in the UEA !
thats why the dates are still on the pics...but that has mnothing to do with dealership details, this is a personal experience im sharing

But you added them later on after people pulled the piss with you on the thick sand, and you posted as a weekend ride not a UAE trip.

Kom nou meneer  ;)

Sorry Michnus, that was just put in to throw you guys a curve ball !!
OH.... and to show you im no stranger to Thick or Deep sand  :mwink:

Sorted, thanks :thumright:
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Good on you mate..  :thumleft:

Keep riding that stuff and ignore the guys who feel the sand is not deep enough - really !!

At least you are out there riding and enjoying yourself.. nice one, lekker bike.
