Still waiting for Donford to call back, as promised, pity the Cape guys....as for Bavarian in Pta, got al call today and picking up my GSA Saturday, thumbs up to Wouter at Bavarian :headbang:

It's clearly better to do long distance deals. The locals don't seem to care about the locals.  >:(

Nope.  This is Bavarian.  A notch above the rest.

Well no one there wanted to even greet me, perhaps I'm persona nongratia without knowing it, After they stopped my seat on the bike I bought brand new from them, when it had its first service. Fortunately there are other dealers and even brands to choose from.

Yes, it is indeed a very good thing that there are other dealers and brands.

Donford voel fokkol vir jou, as jy wegstap is daar reeds iemand anders in die queue.
erens langs die pad byt die een jou in die gat


Huh?

Garfield, ek dink hy bedoel, erens byt daai tipe houding van die dealers hulle in die gat....mense begin gou moeg raak vir n handelaar met so n houding, en jou wallet doen dan maar die praat werk ne...by m ANDER handelaar...

And too Bavarian DP, Rodger Smith (spelling?), spotting the opportunity and presenting my 9 year old with a swiss army knife as a Bavarian gift whilst I got my bike, spot-on...getting a new GSA LC is great, seeing my son this happy, priceless

Just got a call from from Dean at Zambesi, "sir I can supply you a white K51", clearly the Pta boys want to do business and have the courtesy of calling....

Ive got to go to Zambezi for a service soon, so that will be my next option before I head off into the sunset.
