My New Bike
« on: August 31, 2013, 05:48:06 pm »
After selling the XR 250 (my first bike) a couple of years ago, I thought I'd never ride again.  On Friday, Bruce (my husband) says he has found a bike for me, CRF 230.  My dream bike. Ok, I know this sounds like a girl, in 2008 I stepped into a Honda shop in Durban close to Gateway Shopping Mall (I think that's what the mall was called).  I saw the CRF 230 and was in love. I never thought I'd ever have the opportunity to ride my dream bike.

Now that dream has come true ...

Enjoy....... Now Bruce can teach you to wheelie as well as he can on it .
You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who they think can do nothing for them.

My biggest worry in life, is that if I die before my Wife, she will sell my biking gear based on the prices that I told her I had paid for them.

My first ride was awesome ...
but then I had to hand the bike over to Seth as he too wanted to learn how to ride...
What a natural on a bike ... guess it's in the genes...
Obviously Bruce had to show us how it's done ...


Bring on Saturday morning where we can go riding again.

WW - where were the photos taken??

Looks like a nice place to go and play.  My guess is that it is close to Kidds Beach??
