Nice ET!!!!!!

Jy moet hierdie tyd in jou lewe cherish en ELKE oomblik waardeer en jou beste gee...

Mens mis dit verskriklik wanneer jy ouer is en terugdink aan daardie dae....

Not a lot of choice when it comes to 125 2T, either KTM, Husky or Yamaha.

Don't want to ride a yamaha cause they're really dull.

The shop that I race for just became the regional Husky agent, so I get a good product with good backing from a shop 5min from my home :)
