Battery charge Report
« on: April 09, 2014, 12:26:58 pm »
My Aprilia Moto 650 has stood in the Garage for about 6 Months now and I decide to get the old Girl ( she was born in 1997) out of her Room for a Litte losmaak and charge Trip around Oudtshoorn. You must remember that 1 Bike Year is equivalent to roughly 3 Human Years. So last Night I charged the Battery so that big Single could rumble into Life Today. My first stop was Schoemanshoek on the way to the Cango Caves where I parked my Bike to take a Photo. The next thing a Taxi stops next to my Bike and a whole lot of very fat American Women get out and start talking Shit to the Lady inside the Churchground while Iam standing in the Heat with full ATTGAT and sweating like a Bastard. Eventually the see me across the Street and apologise and move their Cage.

It is an Awesome day in the Klein Karoo, the Air is fresh and we head towards the Caves where I take a Dirt Road to the right into the most beautiful Farming area. I cruise around on the little Plaas paaie and breath in the awesome scent of the Lands.

Ther is not a breath of Wind in the Air and I decide to check our Dam level. I go back towards CG and make a left Turn to the Koos Raubenheimer Dam where I admire the View of the Dam and my Bark. I realise that the Battery is fully charged and that a new Curry Place has opened in CG and that it is Time for Lunch.
That's all Folks.

 Ja sy staan baie maar ek kyk baie vir haar. ;D Die Fiets lyk baie mooier in lewende lywe. Sy lyk eintlik fokken mooi. Phillip Starck 'n bekende "Industrial Designer/ Argitek" het die Fiets ontwerp op opdrag van Aprilia. Ok, ek sit jou eerste op die lys. :thumleft:

A few years ago I was having diner with Pierre Terblanche and Adrian Morton, both who are top motorcycles designers. Pierre grew up in Uitenhage and we are good friends.I mentioned that I would love one of these bikes, I love the look and simplicity and believe that it is possibly the ideal city bike. Cool looking and that Rotax motor.  :biggrin: Both off them told me that is kak and a waste of money. :imaposer:

please sell it to me

or give me your address so I can steal it  :drif:

 :thumleft: The first time I saw this Bike was in the Playboy in 1996 and I fell in love with the design. The next Year I went to Joeburg to look at Bikes. I walked into Primrose Suzuki and there was one on the floor. To this day my Wife says she has never seen me so awestruck. I went Ape. The Owner told me it was not for sale. Well after about 3 Hours I loaded her, having paid about R10000.00 more than the selling Price :bueller: but I am not sorry.
