Bikes at Standard Bank Rosebank
« on: September 16, 2015, 11:08:23 am »
I've recently started working at this building and the bike parking tends to have an above average selection of machinery; a pristine 990R, 1150GSA with original luggage, a beautiful red 1200 Explorer, a few 1200 LCs, a very sexy Hannspree CBR, a blacked out Ducati Diavel...

Just wondering if there are any Dogs in there?

yes, i can see how you can say an 1150 GSA with OEM luggage could be above-average...  :thumleft:

What I'm seeing is that Standard bank pays well

Certainly not something you would normally see every day. Makes me smile every morning  ;D

I'm a contractor here; being paid ok well but not great...Transalp money.
Hopefully once I finish my qualification I'll be earning Diavel money.

...and today an F800GS with some nice, high speed, watery mud splatter all the way up around the headlight and tank. One of those bikes you can see has been used.

I work in the Grayston offices, but go to Rosebank a couple of days a week for meetings.
The 1150GSA is mine, i think. Has a Malawi painting on the front. i often park next to your transalp
I also go on my Ducati monster some days.

The Diavel belongs to a colleague of mine  :biggrin:

Yes, we are all contractors  :thumleft:

 :lol8: You'd think hey.

Just for the record, that's eight forward facing lights (excluding the headlight) and four side facing lights. Six of the lights are battery powered and not wired in; this guy must spend almost as much time switching his lights on & off as he does riding. Not helping the GS stigma...

Those little bicycle lights i believe work on inertia and lights up as soon as it starts moving.

BUT DAM! is he going for a 6month trip somewhere?

Nope, I had those lights on my actual bicycle once. There's a clicky-button built into the rubber top. They're cheapies; like R100 for a pair.

Don't know if he's going on a trip, but you can see on the left side pic he's taken one or two (or more?) bags off for his office visit.
I'm wondering if he's maybe a cameraman or something. They're shooting stuff in the office today using quadcopters...

 :lol8: Yeah. There are four bike parking areas per level and five levels. The bikes don't always park in the same places.
Maybe I should go on a photo walkabout at lunch time.

If he has to carry that much luggage for the sake of his job then I almost want to pat him on the back for resisting the car option so strongly.
