You can't take away what he has done for the biking fraternity in SA over the years.

However, the last few years the magazine was nothing more than a book of ads(where he generates most of his income from most probably), 2 or 3 stories written by Howie, or Spongebob or who ever, and some international news. If you skip 3 months you still have the storyline 4 months later. Its like 7de Laan! :peepwall:

How about real bike TESTS, and having an article that is actually about the front page, not who pays most for the front page and then have a crappy 10 liner on the second last page about the front cover. I remember that one distinctly from when the new KLR was their front page cover. The article was a half a pager somewhere in the last 10 pages of the book.

Another thing I picked up is that they're punting themselves heavily in the last few months books, like a Malema trying too explain his stupid rantings every time after the fact. 

Jacko is probably the expert critic on this, but now you have my 2c worth.  :bueller:

"So what is all the fuss about anyway?"

SimonŽs letter was not really doing anything other than an attempting to reconcile. IŽd be pretty pissed off too if someone called me those names. DonŽt the rules of the forum say something about that anyway?

I guess we should learn to attack the issue or behavior rather than the person.  ::)

I like SF.

I subscribe to Bark SA.

I watch the TV show and laugh at the hysterical (read stupid) sh!t Charlie Cooper comes up with - hell everything in life is so serious, one has to find comic relief wherever you can .

I consider SF and DF friends - when I bump into them, they always greet me by hand and most of the times remember my name.  :thumleft:

Not sure what all the hype is about, but I respect SF for what he has done for the biking community and still is doing to this day. He is just bike crazy - somehow I can relate to that.

If I can ride at age 66 like he does to this day, I'd be a happy man.   :ricky:

Ever seem him pass you on the DR on his HP? Man that's just short of insane  :3some:

Long live SF  ;)

I agree that this forum should not allow any member to slander another person.We don't have to like his mag and quite frankly he could not care if we do or don't as his mag has made him a wealthy man like it or not.My 2 c worth.He is a legend in SA biking fraternity so let us respect him irrespective of our personal feelings. :xxbah:

Yes Leo, Simon is obviously a responsible biker, passing you at 200KM/H, pity the motorist that he passes like that would not know how much SF has done for motorcycling so would just view him as another biker dimwit.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Vanoggend by die AMID show probeer die ouens my mos vertel - gaan net hier by die BikeSA tent in en se ek is POM en vra of ek dalk vir die main man kan sien. Bliksems!

I have had an inpromptu meeting with Simon Fourie. We may still get together again some time this week for another. He has asked me to not reply here as he will reply in next month's Bike SA. I await his article.

Quite frankly I have lost all respect for SF. His latest antics of getting his jocks in a twist about comments made here at WD's confim this. ::)

Not fair Rob, he got his jocks in a twist because of serious name calling that should have been moderated.

kak man - we name-called Joost too.

Okes must moderate themselves - not our responsibility?  Must we moderate okes at bashes, bars, braai's too ito what they say to others?

BTW - met SF, he is a good oke.   :thumleft:  Like his mag or not - its only just like your opinion man.... ;) ;D

Thread locked - boring and really not anything left to say?
