Ladies and gentlemen, please forgive video quality, I only had my 4yr old iPhone 6 on my person. 

Mic, lens, and speaker are tired.  Please watch my vid in HD for best experience.

Thank you.

Ladies and dogs, please forgive vid quality, please see above.

I was riding the wagon towed by a tractor in bumpy conditions.

I wanted to jump off to get closer, but it wasn't safe.

It made me happy to see future generation enjoying themselves at such an event.





Then, my archaic iPhone began acting erratically, capturing random images.

One of the most reliable and toughest bakkies ever produced. 

A vehicle, like original Toyota bakkies you can buy in ZA, this bakkie will run and run and run, abuse it as much as you want.

Like the old design FJ series, when this old GM product gets tired, if that happens, you can rebuild or buy a GM crate engine cheap, you can rebuild the whole truck over and over again, just like the craftsmanship found in old FJ series.








I edited this pic to cut down the lights to see just how perfect this truck is.

It was time to go, so I began walking towards my bakkie, this woman had a look of disgust with me. :xxbah: 




I look to see if any horns have begun to protrude from her head.  >:D

As I slowly inch towards it, fearing an attack to my jugular, she asks in a bitchy tone

Her: did you have fun taking pics of that beautiful blonde?  :xxbah:
Me:  I say nothing, she may be bluffing.  :laughing7:
Her:  Well?  :xxbah:
Me:  Well what?  :laughing7:
Her:  Oh whatever you dog.  ::)
Me:  I have no clue what you talking  :laughing7:
Her:  yeah.........okay  ::)
Me:  I'm a Wilddog  :peepwall:

Ladies and dogs, allow me to back up around one month ago, It was a lovely Michigan day.

Sun was shining bright.  I had craving for favorite Bell's beer, Oberon and Two Hearted Ale.

So, I mounted blitzkrieg to Kalamazoo on my most recent 2-wheeled acquisition.




From Bell's I rode to South Haven, Michigan, eastern shore of Lake Michigan.  SH is pretty harbor town.





Before I left SH, I rode down near SH Yacht Club on inlet from Lake Michigan.

My alarm went off this morning at 6am.  I hit the snooze once or 5 times, whoooooze countinnn.

Joseph needed help getting a few bales to Hillsdale Auction.  I hooked up to my motorbike trailer and drove down to his current home.





You may notice Joseph's throne in the following pic  :imaposer:




We left Joe's heading to Hillsdale, with the grass in the bed of my bakkie, I kept top speed to around 72kph.

We arrived at Hillsdale County Fairgrounds, guess how many bales I lost driving down there?

During grass unload, I walked off with camera. 





Pic of new auction barn under construction.





Shot a pic for yous of Ford Super Duty F450 crew cab dually, equipped with 6.7L Powerstroke diesel.  This truck is DRW (dual rear wheel) much higher towing capacity vs SRW.  He's towing a livestock trailer., equipped with a gooseneck bed-mounted hitch.   This model truck is capable of towing  15,650 kilograms or 34,500 pounds.  Impressive numbers.
