That was a rough R62K ride!
Agree, move on since there are better things to come.

My oupa had a similar Yamaha bike - think it was a 125cc or something, cant remember. Here my dad is giving me a lift on the farm in 1983.

2nd picture is my smaller bro (not so small these days) after a hard day on the farm with the bike in the background.

Good memories with that bike man.

what a lucky faarking bastard you were way back then, I'm very envious now, Elsinore nogal.
Just goes to show that sometimes in the early days was way back better than today. I'm still envious...

My en my verloofde se eerste fietse. Die swart CD200 was sommer my 1ste 'project bike' ook. Moes hom reg kry om mee te gaan uit baseer..... Toe kry ons altwee in elk geval ons lisensies op die groenetjie.


Moet ons meer vertel van hierdie want dit lyk soos 'n bike trip  :deal:
