haveing fun!
bike; transalp 400! there are old bikers and bold bikers! but no, old bold bikers!!!
Studys have shown that motorcycleing requires more decisions per second, and more data proccesing than nearly any other common activity or sport. the reactions and accurate decision makeing abilities, have been likened to the reactions of fighter pilots!

In Feb this year. I have a Youtube video as well: I'm the dude in the blue Jacket. We had two 800's and a 690. Pleasant trip around Eastern Cape and Knysna etc. 800's performed flawlessly. Ktm performed like a shot of adrenalin in the heart. Only issue - Ktm cut out in the H20 and required 5 kms of towing with one of the 800's before it recovered. Must get it checked out :-)

A laugh-a-minute sequence of me crossing a river in Lesotho.  Looking reasonably suave until a rock rolls out from underneath me  and then it all goes to pieces.  Compliments to my mates for getting it all on film so well.

I just finished a SciFi novel Extinction: Task Team, download the preview.
