Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

I'll just add one or two more pics that I missed during the RR.  :thumleft:

While I had time to kill on the 1st night while waiting for the recovery crew, I took out the drone and caught some of this...


Op daardie plaas 2 km verder lę 'n hoop spaar tyres!!!  Hier in Fraserburg is darem 4 Wilddogs wat sou kon help.  Net jammer mens weet nue van mekaar nie!

Ek wil 'n klip in die bos gooi. Is dit nie die effort werd om op 'n kaart plekke te plot waar daar ou bande lę nie. So sodat mense jou drumpel kom deurtrap nie maar dit kan 'n fellow Dog uit die moeilikheid help in tye van nood.

Looks like a very lekker trip you guys had there!

Must admit, when I first read this, I also thought Oompie was taking a chance. But then got to thinking - the oke actually has to replace the tyre - he as a bike standing there with a naked rear rim after all. Not sure what your tyres cost, but R2,500 for a rear isn't too far out of the ballpark compared to the simple Sahara that I bought a month or so ago. Not like he'd just be able to pick up a half worn Anakee to replace the one that you took.Then too, I wonder how much it costs to get the tyre to Carnarvon.

He could have said no, in which case it would prob have taken a bit more than R2500 to sort out your problem.

Both the other tyres that you got were write-offs - if those guys had charged you, I would have thought they were taking advantage of the situation. Not too sure about Oompie. Not too sure that someone living in Cararvon would be rolling in the bucks, so maybe sympathise with his viewpoint

Anyway - just a thought.....

There is definitely some merit in Oom Pieter's argument. It's just interesting how his viewpoint changed from planning on replacing the tire anyways (proven by the length of remaining life I got out out of it), to now being forced to buy a new tire and actually only doing it because he's doing us a favour.

Something I left out was that he was planning on driving to Beaufort the next day with his car and would replace the tire there, so there's not much bike downtime or even much extra effort on his side. Anyways, willing buyer, willing seller. I've put it behind me.  8)
he would not have got a bike tyre there, around our parts they need to be ordered before and takes a few days and extra courier, he charged you about what a repalcement would have cost him
i stay in vredendal and have some free for needed people
