Silence is golden...... Duct tape is silver

Everything works with smoke, if the smoke escapes, it stops working.

It's good to be reminded every once in a while how privileged we are.  :thumleft:
Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.

I was just thinking today why do we need expensive cars and houses in Africa, the real Africa feeling is to ride with an old bakkie or Land Rover and live close to nature. Maybe I am just getting old .....

Yip, the "more mature" I have become the more I have come to realise that I've wasted so much money and time acquiring "nice to have" things. I would have been far wealthier, and therefore been able to retire long ago (and not only at 50  ;D), if I'd just been a little more frugal. I'm not talking a drastic cut in lifestyle, just small changes here and there.

...but of course this would not apply to a new bike - that would be taking it too far  :biggrin:
