Andy660 emigrating to the U K !
« on: December 02, 2019, 10:12:21 pm »
I never immagined  that I would leave SA , having  lived here all my life, but got a really good job offer.

Dont know where im going to get a silencing device for my Scorpion pipes on my XT, cos I can see myself ducking down some muddy road with a cop car after me, lol.

Well Im leaving at the end of Dec.
Thanks to all of you that have ridden with me on all our fantastic rides in and around the Western Cape,
I will be missing the next Canola run , sadly as Ive done all but one of them and the next thumper Bash,and the Ec Bash, Eish ,,,,!!!!!

Oh well , I will find some two spoors in the uk to ride, I wonder if the land owners will be as under stading as our SA farmers , when i get lost and blame my GPS,
Ag , I will just gooi Afrikaans and act dumb !,, Hoe se maneer ?
Hoe se Engelsman ???

I only met you once, at the Thumper Bash in 2016, and you were a real mensch, the kind of guy that would help any ou in trouble on some backroad...I always thought that if we lived in the same neighborhood we would be mates...

At worst your neighborhood now will be much quieter for you having gone.

Beste , may bru’ ...

Good Lord! I nearly didn't read this thread thinking it was a follow-on joke from Helderberg Paarden Island closing.  All the best Andy. Hell, you've been the best friend to me and so many others. We'll miss you, and hope this adventure works out fantastically..

What part of the UK will you be going to, and when can we buy you a beer?

You are a Legend Andy and most of us joined you as noobs to explore the WP.
Jip will miss you at Canola run for sure.


Don't worry soon you will be a  Legend there as well and sharing some nice ride reports.
Looking forward to that and the new chapter in your life.
Regards an all of the best.

No wonder Yamaha Paarden Eiland has closed...their brand ambassador is leaving :'(.

All the best with your new life on that little island of mud called the UK...its actually not a bad place.

Only met you to speak to once, you probably won't remember, but here's wishing you all the best with your move and your job.

At the same time, here's hoping you'll find reason to return some day 'cos this is a damn sight better place no matter what they say.
