Gotta love the simplicity of the good old days, no gps, no panniers , no tent, no full armour. Must be nice to just stop and camp anywhere, not having to try put up a tent, no blow up matress, air pillow, Simplicity at it's best  :thumleft:

No disc brakes, no fuel injection, no abs, no 'cat', leaded fuel, half the horsepower, no xenons, no HID's, no LED's....

Me (in the check shirt :3some:) with my riding buddies in 1981 all 'kitted' up and ready to hit the riverbeds and koppies of Pta.  What shocked me most when I got this picture was how skinny I was  :imaposer:

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

Great one . Takes me way down memory lane. My old man did not share my biking passion. My kids do and I hope to give them these memories. Very special.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

…, I wish I could own them all, and until I can afford to own them all at once, I will own them one at a time...
