I'm no German spy or anything, but I think she mentioned us in their blog. Don't understand much though.

Stinki goes Home
Knapp 5 Tage nach dem Unfall konnten wir mit Hilfe unserer Freunde Toni und Darlene, sowie einem Motorrad-Internet-Forums, den Wild Dogs, (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?action=help) ZA, vieles organisieren.
Marc, ein Mitglied der Wild Dogs, hatte ein Fotos meiner BMW ins Forum gestellt. Darauf hin haben sich viele bereit erklärt zu helfen. Unter anderen auch Rainer und Ben. Beide sind im Transportgeschäft tätig und organisieren gemeinsam den Transport von JoBurg nach Walvis Bay. Und dann ist da noch Sharron, sie holt das Krad am Samstag hier in Nelspruit ab und bringt es samt dem Campingstuff nach JoBurg! Vielen Dank an alle Beteiligte, vielen Dank für die Spenden, um den Transport so günstig wie möglich zu machen. Es ist wirklich unglaublich was diese Leute aus dem Motorrad Forum auf die Beine stellen. Und dabei sind wir den wenigsten bisher persönlich begegnet.
Danke auch an George, Arina und Pete, ohne deren Hilfe hätten wir vermutlich kein Equipment, denn während Marco mich versorgt hat, haben die ersten schon am Krad nach brauchbaren Dingen gesucht!! War eben ne Scheiß Gegend!
Bisher läuft dank der Hilfe von vielen alles Super!!
Auch ja und zuletzt großen Dank an unsere Homebasis Dirk und Addy!!! Die beiden haben uns einiges abgenommen!
Nicht zu Letzt einen Teil der KHS Rechnung!
Nicht danken möchte ich der Tante vom ADAC!! Die hat sich wirklich Unkompetent benommen und uns viele Nerven im und am Krankenbett gekostet!
Jetzt muss nur noch mein rechter Arm wieder heilen, derzeit ist alles dick geschwollen und ich kann noch nicht alle Finger bewegen. Dennoch bin ich trotz meiner Ungeduld guter Dinge! Am 10. ist der nächste und entscheidende Arzttermin!

Almost 5 days after the accident, we were able with the help of our friends Toni and Darlene, and a motorcycle internet forum, the wild dog, (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?action=help organize) ZA, much more.
Marc, a member of the Wild Dogs, a BMW had my photos on the forum. Points out, many have agreed to help. Among other well Rainer and Ben. Both are in the transportation business and organize work together. Transporting JoBurg to Walvis Bay And then there's Sharron, she brings the motorcycle on Saturday here in Nelspruit, and brings it together with the camping stuff after JoBurg! Thanks to everyone involved, thank you for the donations to make the transport as low as possible. It really is incredible what these people make from the motorcycle forum on the legs. And we are the fewest ever met personally.
Thanks also to George, Arina and Pete, without whose help we would probably have no equipment, because while Marco has provided me, have been looking at the first motorcycle for useful things! Was just a fucking around!
Until now runs with the help of many super everything!
Even so, and finally a big thank you to our home base Dirk and Addy! The two have taken us a lot!
Not to last part of the KHS bill!
thank I wish not to the aunt by ADAC! Which has really behaved incompetent and cost us a lot of nerves in and at the bedside!
All that remains is my right arm heal, currently is all swollen and I still can not move all the fingers. However, I'm in good spirits despite my impatience! On 10 is the next and crucial doctor's appointment!

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Hello Wild Dogs,
My written english is the best, but i would like to give u a short message from me and Marco.
At first, thank you so much for your help, if there is any place to break my arm, i think here is perfekt.
Now, one week after, i am feeling much better. Most of the pain is gone.
We knew about the special driving taktik, our special friends, the taxi driver! That, why we tryed to drive carefully. But no chance when you realize it 15 Meters bevor accident. My only thinking bevor crash was, i hope i am hurting myself not so bad. 😄😄😄 And thats it! I had a lot of luck and that is reasen we want to finish the journey!!! Now. We are able to finish and that is because, the Wild Dogs are a realy helpfull Family!!! Thanks to everybody so much!!! When ever u vistit Germany, mi casa is sous casa!
Thank you!!!!

Ok, so I am assuming that you are dealing with Ben regarding the couriering between JHB and Walvis Bay...?
You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi to the ramp.
