Hi Dorsland and all....

Am around, on and off. Didn't know I am an "old faithful"... :patch: :biggrin:

Just jobwise been busy with setting myself up for general tourism as my client base is not big enough to carry me financially. At present this does not seem to have been the wisest decision, as my income died in March, totally. For how many months, I have no idea. So I am plotting what to do next. Still got some fires burning, but no reason to crack open any champagne. Toured a fair bit the last two years, mainly general tourism, once on the road, I don't come here often. Been to Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe about 10 times and did about 10 SA tours in that period and hope, it will pick up again. No regrets that I went that route, beats sitting in the office any time. Now I have to see, what to do the next couple of months until such time, when the business picks up again, and it will, I am sure of that. Will probably teach some people how to ride bikes (on the road) from beginners to advanced and once I am allowed again, will probably go for a camping trip, wherever the nose leads......

Back to the subject, people come and go, that's forums, besides, many went for other social media etc., so forums in general took a knock in terms of participation. I'll hang around, for what it's worth. I always find something interesting, either just to read or to comment....

Hang in there chaps and female chaps, better times to come! :ricky:

Things will pick up after this, in fact, as it is after traumatic events, people will come back with new zest, and want to make the most.

Waar is MOF daar naby Ceres in die Kaap.
As ek reg onthou is hy 'n Veearts maar ek dink dalk die Distrik Staats Veearts.
Ons het een keer by sy plaas aan gegaan om hom te ontmoet.
Hy is 'n baie goeie mens wat 'n storie kon vertel dat jy jou stukkend lag.
Sy woorde skat was absoluut puik en uiters beskrywend.
Hy is regtig 'n baie snaakse ou maar ook baie eerlik en op die man af.
Hy het so XR650 en 'n klompie ander fietse gehad ook.
Mof as jy hierdie lees kom s tog HELLO!! :thumleft:

Where the fuck is wherethefakawe

He stripped his moer completely with Kilroy and a few other guys a while back.  I didn't blame him but I miss his intelligence and wide range of interests here.  Especially is SADF input.

Me too. He has a way with words which is sorely missed.

I still chat to him on the phone every few weeks. He is well, but with the grounding of most flights he is not flying much.  :thumleft:

Tell him next time you speak to come show some face here. I enjoyed his knowledge. Like what else has he got to do with his spare time now?
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

A slight hijack, but I also agree that other social media has taken its toll, make and model specific Wattsapp and Facebook groups abound on web to the general detriment of the forum. Forums are way better for anything technical as it is a repository not just a once off each time.

Ek loer af en toe in as ek sit en wag vir iets om te gebeur (Soos nou). Maar meeste van die tyd, maak ek iets gebeur. Ek kan nie eers TV kyk se tydmors handle nie. Jy het net soveel minute op aarde, en elk een wat jy mors, is gone vir altyd....

Ahh, the joys of ADHD. Ek voel jammer vir julle "normal"okes. Dis seker moer boring om net een stemmetjie in jou kop te h
