Interesting and a bit off topic. I have never ridden a super bike and have never had the interest in ridding one ,
but sitting at the Spur in Piketburg on Sunday I noticed a strange thing.
when the adventure bikes come in to the petrol station, they do it with dignity and quietly, the super bike riders come in and every one of them rev up the bike before switching it off and then again when they start it ,what is all this about , to me they just looked like a bunch D@@S`s , the problem being the comment from the table next to me was," why do all you bikers always have to make so such noise ".

You'll probably blame the superbike riders for the closure of Old Postal route as well? :pot:

Hooligans in every genre of biking.

Why do you think a lot of 150HP+ "adventure" bikes get sold?

If they were doing this in Oz or NZ, they would be arrested on the spot for defeating the course of justice and have their machines confiscated.

Oh please, emigrate already..... to those two shit countries in which citizens have no more rights anymore but a gazillion freedom-restricting laws to adhere to!
And they are made to adhere to them, by superstrict policing if not reported by their very own neighbours "because that's the right thing to do" according to State-sponsored TV ads, the mere principle the Pitts of Indoctrination!
Have fun there, the absolute maximum toptopspeed in NZ being 100 km/h.... and you will not dare to go quicker because of the astonishingly costly fines which you WILL incur!
Oz is it's close second, a vast country in which nothing's possible anymore, because personal freedom has been eradicated!
Viva the RSA in that repect!  :thumleft:
You reminded me of a Kiwi mate who often came to SA for business in the late 1990s. He would get in his rental at the airport and drive straight through the first red light he came accross. Always said he enjoyed coming here because he felt like a free person here. Was a bit of a wild one, with a Bonneville fetish. Now lives in Canada alas - he must be going senile.  :imaposer:

Not been to Canada yet but he just may have a liiiiiitle bit more freedom there than he was used to, NZ being the royal champion of Public Belittling on a National scale of all the countries I've been to!
Oz is close though, and Canada (yeah, hearsay, internet-knowledge plus some info of some friends who live there) seems to follow this trend close-ish.
Look, all 3 countries are stunning, their nature throwing you stunning vistas which are baffling, 'awesome' in the most literal meaning..... but the people themselves, I pity them: locked & loaded to loath free spirits, and anyone doing/acting a bit 'freely' (jaywalking, speeding very modestly, cleaning your own gutter without eye protection (I fggn kid you NOT!) or lighting a braai fire in your own backyard) is instantly penalized by the authorities, sometimes alerted by your very own neighbours - which is normal and not frowned upon due to government campaigns which have unfortunately been very effective, the people have been brainwashed beyond rescue already  :-\
Go for a holiday and have a look, but think twice if not thrice of settling there if you also relish in the abundant personal freedom we enjoy here in ol' SA!
