It is never too late or too early to be whoever you want to be.

Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.

I'm not going to read all that. Can some-one please post a abbreviated version :P :P :P :P :P :P

ABBREVIATED VERSION (for people with short attention spans, who have the cheek to want to know everything those with concentration abilities knows)

"KEEP THE BIKER SPIRIT OF FREEDOM, PASSION AND BROTHERHOOD ALIVE.  

ESPECIALLY BROTHERHOOD.

ITS ABOUT RIDING, LIVING, EXPERIENCING & SHARING WITH FELLOW BIKERS ON THE ROAD.

ITS NOT ABOUT READING / POSTING ON FORUMS OR TALKING BIG YET DOING NOTHING"


SO STOP READING THIS AND GET THE HELL ON YOUR BIKE (or in your garage FIXING your bike) AND JUST DO IT."


I think, that's more or less an accurate abbreviation.... I don't actually know, cos I couldn't concentrate long enough to read the whole thing... but I 'm good at skimming through stuff... even Haynes manuals... maybe THAT's why my bike's broken.

ahh. Thanks.
But I'm still sober, this is to deep for me.

But help me again with the recipe, as I think I have it down wrong?

Is it ONE part crystal-meth to THREE parts Whiskey? And when do I add the (sweet) Mary-Jane?

thanks.

Hey Zonkel. Hoe gaan dit maat?

Dankie vir hierdie waar woorde veral die volgende: "In this time I got the Caponord and even more mistakes was pointed out to one of the most amazing bikes I had the honor to own."
Ook ek het toegelaat dat ander se mening oor my bike, my beperk het tot die "maklike" todat ek eendag besluit het dat die enigste beperking, my eie is.

Come to think of it, I took my 1980 Moto Guzzi, where I was scared to take the Capo, just because the general perception was that it was not a real DS bike. I've since realized that your bike is as good as you allow it to be. And as for the Trail Wings, I stared on them and I'm still on them and will probably remain with them.

You must try and make contact with a guy called Daniel Kalal there in the States. More specifically in St Paul, Minniapolis if you ever in that area. He's been riding since 1976 and he's done a lot of trip reports. Not all on a DS bike, but he's a serious rider. Check out his ride reports here http://www.dankalal.net

nice words zonkel!  i don't want to be argumentative, but some of that technical talk about which bike is best etc ... ... is also part of the 'love affair' that is biking.  we all love to talk bike, it's part of the passion.  but if all that talk does not become the walk, then you're right.

Very true Zonkelnut. A lot of okes try and talk the talk, but can not walk the walk. These okes do not know that they stand out like sore thumbs anyway.

My work here is done.

Would be interesting to see a mission statement or credo describing the fundamentals of biking

I hope you do not take offence, but I would like to equate the spirit of biking, specifically DS, to the Land Rover Defender crowd. Always a friendly wave between Defender drivers, not the most hip vehicle out, definitely not mod, beset with problems, a vehicle with attitude, etc etc. But, they have the spirit of freedom, first out in the bush in the roughest terrain, just living life. I suppose thats why I bought myself a KLR, same mindset maybe.

They would have to be friendly...they never know when they might need a part, tools or a helping hand...
