Emergency trip to the airport
« on: February 17, 2006, 05:00:18 pm »
Hi

I received a phone call this afternoon stating that the computers I had on site need to get to JHB by Monday for training purposes. DUH They could have let me know earlier so that I could have brought my car. :violent1:  :withstupid:

Well what do I do ? I could come into the office tomorrow, NOT, or just take the bike. Packed two PC's in a box and off I went.




The trip was done as if I was driving in the rain, and 20 minutes and R108.25 later, all done. 8)
Regards

I once transported my Asus Terminator on the back of my Dakar, without protection to a different site. Was fun, but I was pretty careful.

Whats the monetary value for?

No, freight charges to get the box to JHB.

At DBN bikes don't pay for parking, ever. I once parked my bike there for a week and did not pay a cent :D  I was nervous though that something would go wrong. The bikes alarm had been triggered, but the bike was where I parked it. (Probably someone's kid sitting on it, they love to do it if they think no one is watching)

In JHB there is an Avertising agency who has a KLR delivery bike, with a big ass tube down the side for artwork. Its in woodmead so keep an eye out.
At least he can deliver to anywhere in the country.
