Supertrapp, yes definitely.  :biggrin:

I had a Nolan I think (something British), then a Bell, then an AGV open face, then a Premier with HUGE Metalflake. :biggrin:

Can you believe I still have that Simpson and Bell Moto III in my cupboard today.  At one stage I wanted to toss them out but just couldn't bring myself to throw that history away.  Padding is of course all disintegrated to nothing.

I always wanted an XT500 or XT250 when I was in high school
Friend of mine had a maroon coloured XT250

'n XT500 is al waaroor ek in die weermag kon droom.

Ek was 3 weke 16 toe is ek army toe. My droom bike Was n klein Honda Benly. Dink dit was 150cc. Het ure met die brochures gele en droom oor die bike en die langpaaie wat ek sou ry met hom. Ver ver paaie :ricky:

Dink het begin met Lafe vir 50 en toe later opgradeer na die Bell Moto III - ook maroon. Watter kleur is joune?

Ekself 17 toe ek weermag toe is.  Vandag kyk ek die jong latte van daai ouderdom en kan nie dink hulle sou dit maak nie.  Ek klink nou dalk soos 'n ou suurgat oom maar dis 'n feit.  Het al jong outjies op die plaas indiens gehad en hulle handtjies is gans en al te sag.  Koppe ook nie reg nie.  Mens hoop maar hulle word net later as ons ryp, want as dit ons voorland is, is dit nag.

Is it because we've got older and jaded or because the world has changed Wayne?  Maybe a combination of both.  But I get the feeling youngsters of today certainly don't have the level of freedom we had back then.

Certainly here they don't, but I think the world has changed, my kids and their friends are not like my generation. Also the UK, when I visit my generation and older are still nuts, the youngsters world is more sterile, more PC, less and less friendly to wild spirits.  :peepwall:

This!  This is the saddest part of the world we live in today.  It is a scary place yet sanitised.  A contradiction in terms yes but you have nailed it in that last phrase Welsh.  Wild spirits have been hobbled and buried. Very sad. :-\

My broer, nou 63, kla by my oor 18 jarige laaities wat hy indiens neem wat nie oor 'n gewone heining kan klim of teen die kloof kan uit nie. Sag en pateties geword.
