Ronnies Sex Shop needs support
« on: October 13, 2020, 09:29:56 pm »
Just as many other venues have been under pressure lately, "Ronnies" is also having a hard time out there on its own on the R62.
With few passing riders, business is down.

Please consider making a crowdfunding donation:

Help keep a bikers heritage landmark open.

For years locals have been charged a tourist rate for the drinks, now the locals must come to the rescue?

Stem saam met jou Altie.  Jammer maar ek was nog nooit 'n groot fan van Ronnie's se shop nie.  Net my eie opinie. :sip:

His problem is not us bikers going there less, it is the tourists not coming to pay tourist rates anymore.

Like it is pointed out by Gerrard, he shuld have enough to carry him through several Covid seasons.

As Ladismither is Ronnie's net so 50km hier van my af en het die manne veral vroeër dae gereeld met die bikes uitgery soontoe. 'n Groot biker-gees en vriend, André "Porky" Barnard, was natuurlik ook gereeld in die pakkie en dan koop hy ook maar die R18.00 se Black Label wat by sy eie restaurant en kroeg hier in Ladismith op daai stadium R10.00 was.

Eendag kom doen ou Ronnie sy shopping in die dorp en na die tyd gaan drink hy  toe 'n bier by Porky se plek. Groot was sy skok en verbasing toe Porky hom R18.00 charge al wys die bord bokant die toonbank dat dit R10.00 is!  Vir lank daarna was daar by Ronnie's toe 'n "local special" van R10,00 'n bier as ons daar kom!

Dit was die R21.00 coke wat daai tyd in pubs en restourante R8.00 gekos het, wat my bietjie afgesit het. Ek konnie 'n bier bekostig nie.

Regarding RSS, been there once only because of its reputation and found it to be just another shop, and bought a Tshirt to prove I'd been there.

I always thought that some might find the place a bit dissapointing, with all respect. There really isn't much apart from the grafitti and a few bra's hanging from the ceiling.  Maybe a few old car wrecks or other collectables might provide a bit of an outback town feel and look. Something in the line of Canyon Road House but with affordable drinks!

They say that with good marketing you can sell anything.  After reading here I may not make the effort for a first visit.  Or maybe I will but just take my own Coke along.  O0

I stopped there once on my bike.  Went into the bar to buy a beer.  Stood there quite a while while whoever was talking to a customer.  I gave him plenty of time to excuse himself from his "customer' (obviously a friend) & attend to me.  When it hadn't happened within what I considered reasonable I walked out & rode away.  There were just the 2 of us; his friend & me.  I presume it was Ronnie behind the counter.
