Mmmmm, :patch: lyk my hier is 'n klomp af getreede "ducktailes" hier op die WD's


Nice thread hierdie, ek onthou nog as laaities hoe ons altyd die ouens se fietse bekyk het, daai tyd het ek ons nie veel van die goed se handling en spec's geweet nie maar die looks en klank het vir ons gesÍ of dit 'n great bike was, of die manier waarop die ou die ding gery het,

Die Katana het natuurlik die mooiste looks gehad en die woord Katana het ook die ding gedoen,  'n ander mooi bikes was Yammie se 1.1 Midnight Special,

As ek reg onthou was die Kawa ouens lief vir die Kerker (spelling?) exhuast, ander pype wat ook gewild was was die Wild Cats,

Isn't that so often the case EssBee  :biggrin:  I used to come home at all hours of the night and thought it was lekker to drop a few gears so that that Cowley could sing.  Needless to say, the sleeping folks weren't so happy about that.  Today I would get out of bed and have a few harsh words to say if a youngster made the same racket  ;D

And regarding our dress code, it's not a good idea to take a stroll down memory lane.  Ons het ons name lekker velskoen gemaak  :imaposer: :imaposer:

I posted this pic somewhere else, but the leather pants and white tekkies are a case in point.   :P 8)

 :laughing4:

I'll share a "secret" : The Cape Town Traffic Dept. allocated a syndicate of cops to regularly patrol in Plumstead as there were so many complaints about my mates and I making 'geraas' etc etc in the neighbourhood.  We learnt this through a younger friend who had a CD185 who was stopped one night, and the cop thought he couldn't possibly be one of our crowd with his little bike, and mentioned this to him. Well...their timing was bad because my bike was in pieces with a gearbox issue, another guy was on a camp, another guy had his bike laid up for a respray, so there was very little activity.

"Ducktail"....mmm....nou het ek f-ol hare  :biggrin:

Dorsland, dis 'n mikrobus, daai tyd was hulle so two tone, ons is 4 kinders en is seker deur 6 kombi's so oor die jare, daai foto is geneem by ons strandhuis in Keimond. Di QR pas mooi in die kombi se boot.
