Noem dit n PRINTER AFDRUKKER.
Alles werk nou met gevordere komputer rekenaar stelsels, wi-fi, USB stokkies, Bou tanne en internet

Reggemaak vir jou

Regtergemaak vir jou  :P

Uhm actually

'n Afdrukker is kopieër masjien (of slegte Afrikaanse woord vir fotostaatmasjien)

G'n wonder die avontuur-afdeling is moer toe nie. Hier is nou al byna twee bladsye wat handel oor wat noem jy sekere aperate, welke aperate deesdae in dieselfde kategorie hoort as vergassers. Hierdie is die digitale era. Klim op julle rekenaarbeheerde, sagteware-afhanklike, petrolinspuiting-aangedrewe fietse en ry. Neem digitale foto's dan, voer die goed deur manipuleringsprogramme om dit polities korrek te kry en plaas dit hier. Wie druk nog? (daardie tipe druk)

Jy preek vir die koor. Die enigste sagteware waarvan my motorfiets afhanklik is, is ek self, en ek het RRs gedoen vir Junie, Augustus en September.

Kan nie onthou dat ek onlangs iets van jou daar gesien het nie, behalwe kommentare op ander mense se poste....  :sip: :pot: :imaposer:  ;)

Jy maak 'n klompie goeie punte  :thumleft:
Bv. dat jyself (jy in persoon en ook jy derde persoon) is in beheer, nie sagteware (synde die fiets of vervaardiger) nie  Afleidings wat hier gemaak kan word, is dat onafhanklike motorfietse (dws fietse onafhanklik van beheer en toesig van die vervaardigers - jy kan dus op die fiets doen wat jy wil) meer aangelê is vir avontuur (rondneuk in die bosse, bv.).
Waar daar 'n wil is, is daar 'n weg - 'n pad letterlik.
Ekself mis 'n goeie rit. Inderdaad. Daar is 'n rede daarvoor en is ek omgekrap dat ek in die posisie is wat ek tans is. Maar ek werk aan planne. Daar is lig aan die einde van die tonnel.
Die beste wat ek nou kan doen, is om deel te neem aan ander se avonture en die beginsel te ondersteun en aan te por.

I love reading Ride Reports, but I've hardly written any worth mentioning myself for various reasons.

Like, I don't do many long or prestigious trips. I'm a lousy writer and an even worse photographer. Any pics I might take would be just my bike badly composed against some backdrop or other. Or a similar selfie of my own ugly mug. And I wouldn't know how to post the pics anyway.

But I'll keep reading the marvellous reports that are there of rides that I'll almost certainly never get to do any more and occasionally voicing my appreciation. I don't think the forum is all that short on reports, there certainly seems to be plenty to keep me glued to the screen for longer than I ought to be, but keep them coming nonetheless. :thumleft:

I used to dislike posting ride reports, for the same reason. After a while I started realising there's no such thing as a bad ride report.

Ohhhhh.....................HORSE SHIT old man.  :lol8:  Regardless whether you ride 10, 50, 1000 klicks, who gives a shit, tell us about it. 

I'm one of your fans man, git it dun  :biggrin:  All you need is a current smartphone with a decent camera and have someone download Tapatalk for you and give you a quick demo on how to use it.  Simple as can be.

As far as your ugly mug, you have to remember, everyone can't be as handsome as I am, I was just born incredibly lucky in the looks department, but that's superficial, jay, nobody is going to print my incredible face or your ugly mug and posterize it to their garage wall, so whats da big debate about already  :pot:

One doesn't have to have an iPhone, I mean, Apple products are the benchmark of the industry, though a Google Pixel cell phone captures amazing pics.

Apple iPhone's interface and or usability makes it the easiest phone to use.

Any RR with a boxer is so much more than a regular RR, for the rider actually hauled that big-ass machine of his over terrain that is more suitable to the other Austrian manufacturer's bikes, and therefore deserves to have pics of his tormenting machine posted. :biggrin:
