Yes your coffee is working, just short, you come with a million and leave with some change to buy a good fully kitted KLR

Flippen aweome.   :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: Bringing back amazing memories.  I was in the UAE in December 2016 visiting friend in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. 

Was amazed by the amount of buildings, amecian muscle cars and their bakkies as we know it.  Also, the amount of detail they use in all their malls and buildings and you can clearly see they love marble.  Would love to go back again sometime, because the 2 weeks I was there, was not enough time to see and do everything I wanted.

Please keep on sending some pics and good luck that side. :thumleft: O0

Already worked it out, had a little vomit in my mouth and decided to look at secondhand wheelbarrows instead.

Saw this Honda the other day, not really my cup of tea, but the build looked OK.

Just an arty-farty picture taken one evening just outside of Dubai.

My headmaster in primary school in Stellenbosch had one that he drove to school.
My dad's best buddy had a BMW 700, even more scarce but not as sought after:

@2StrokeDan
Seeing he is such a fanboy.......
Times were tough and my dad and his buddy often bought things that were not used everyday, and shared the use of it.

  • 230 mm AEG angle grinder
    • 230 Amp welding machine
  • Sausage making equipment
  • Beer making equipment

When he needed the old-school welding machine he would fetch it with the BMW and put it in the (front) load area.
Problem was, he stayed right at the top of Uniepark, which has the steepest hill in Stellenbosch!
It only just made it up there in 1st gear  :laughing4: :laughing4:

The UAE is fairly flat with mountains only to the East, in the Ras Al-Khaimah area. The other place with a rock higher than sea level is Jabal Hafeet in Al Ain. There is a nice winding road to the top with a look-out point, as well as a hotel and a palace for the ruling family.

Here is a panorama from the top with Al Ain in the back ground.
