Now I know why he used your deposit to fix his bikes.

With this attitude I think you deserved it  :thumleft:

agree, that comment basically confirmed his side of the story as being a lot of BS

Ber welcome to Wilddogs, dont worry we are mostly a bunch of friendly French German and Dutch mix breeds (ok English, Welsh and a Czech too). Whatever happens stick around and post some of your ride reports and share some of your DS rides in the Northern Hemisphere  :deal:

Thanks you Sidetrack. Sorry not to be South African and don't speak afrikaner. You seem a very close community, and humour is not always... international... I know it's not  easy to be understood as a foreigner.
Anyway wilddog is famous in France and often read by people who like adventure bikes. It's important to know how to look beyond appearances and misunderstandings.

Ber, also welcome from my side.
I would also like to find out more about your travels.
Irrespective of your unfortunate experience, those things happen anywhere and never pleasant and each party is always right in his eyes. I do hope that the matter gets resolved in an acceptable manner.
But, please stay here and contribute so we can share in each others experiences!

Welcome Ber, yes we south africans are a bunch of crooks, whether it is Zuma stealing  or as in your case, but hope everything gets resolved, i cannot believe that people in the rental fraternity do this, but i went the same way in the past with people in the towing business.

An exceptionally professional and articulate explanation. Your company seems to be legit and well run.  :thumleft:


Probably prudent that I provide a response, both in my own defense as well as that of Adventure Bike Safaris (Pty) Ltd.



The long and the short of it is that we had three mechanically incompetent foreign clients bite off more than could chew vis-a-vis Lesotho off road riding, suffer multiple falls and drops badly damaging three bikes which left the garage in perfect condition and in good working order.

This is the first complaint ever made against us or our company, in contrast to a Facebook page littered with many raving reviews about our good service and professionalism.

C'est la vie.

Indeed, as said "you bend you mend" - no different to a rental car. Klaar.

One question " What would it cost to get the bikes back to the condition that they were in when you took them"?
