Just got a bloody huge shocker of a telephone bill !!!  :xxbah: :xxbah: :xxbah:
Bloody Vodacom!!! Charged me R613,16 per day for data roaming - R1226,32 for 30&31 December only - and I've only used 6,12mb data in these 2 days !!!  :xxbah: :xxbah: :xxbah:

I can gladly live with my 2 x new tubes and front rim with smiley, as well as my broken number plate bracket (R27  ::) ), as well as my buggered old helmet (own fault), as well as my torn right Berick boot, as well as all the wear and tear on bike and everything, but to pay R613 for basically 3mb of whatsapps, is ludicrous !!!
Sorry for the rant ...  :-[

But, beware !!!

Hi Chris L
Yeah have taken it for a spin, "Lekker" bike goes well but have not had the privilege to ride it on gravel/sand yet. although when me and Ian done our last trip together, he was on the new Twin and she went like a dream on the sand. As too me buying one, yip have thought about it, i like the bike but am always skeptical with all of the bloody electronics that can go wrong. I still like the old Twin but "Ya" they are getting along in the years and one has too at some stage upgrade. That been said yip i think its a good bike and if i had to choose between the Dp's i scheme i will go for the twin. ;D :ricky:

Dankie vir die deel.

Daai sinkplaat oppad na Pofadder is loshande die slegste stuk pad wat ek ooit gery het. Kort, kort gestop om te kyk of daar nog n fiets onder my was. Pieng, pieng al die pad

En daai Agri op Brandvlei is soos n sprokies wereld, flippen roomys en aircon terwyl die hitte buite gons.

Dankie vir die report, dit was awesome.

Daai Vodacom bill is mal. Ek het soveel betaal vir 10 dae in Australie en was elke dag op Facebook.

Volgende keer moet jy kyk, Vodacom het so Traveller package wat basies die roaming rates halveer.
May the bridges I burn light the way...

Net n bietjie terugvoering oor die Motoz Tractionater Adventure. Het nou 3500 km gedoen, waarvan ongeveer 1500 km grondpad was. Band is seker bietjie meer as halfsluit, so ek reken ek sal ▒ 7000 km kry. Tot dusver is ek baie be´ndruk en tevrede met die band op beide teer en grond. Het nog nie modder of nat teer toestande teŰgekom nie.    :ricky:

Ja die B#$%^&s - na byna 'n week se geveg en uiteindelik dreigamente, het hulle my "roaming" koste darem ook halveer ...  ??? Sal my rekening glo binne 4 dae krediteer met die verskil ...  :patch:
