Put the GSV in my name
« on: July 05, 2014, 07:45:49 am »
Its a looonnnggg story, the GSV and me came together before this forum started, but it was a great friend and colleagues bike, it went on many trips north of the border and down to the Eastern Cape with Uli its owner, then he moved back to Germany, but he "stored" the bike with me and used it when he came over.

The deal was that I used it on condition I insured and maintained it, and oh boy did I use it  ::)

So the licence renewals and fines still finished up at my office so I never got round to doing the change until this week, now the old lady is formally mine :biggrin: :biggrin: made an honest lady of her... 8)

This frame of licence discs is up in my garage, all from the GSV herself... pathetic I know :peepwall:

There are old riders, and bold riders, but no old, bold riders.

Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.
