I don't care if SF brings about peace in the middle east and cures cancer - bikeSA is still a rag. got nothing against the man, but the mag is pathetic

I go to his rallies, but that doesn't mean I buy his magazines. He is, in general, like most people are - out to make a living doing what he likes. And he DID and still do a lot for the biking community via TV and RSG. Much like Think Bike etc.

9/11 on:
Wild Dog isn't very actively promoting bike safety to the non-biking public. The visitors to the site (members / guests) usually are already aware of the safety aspect, are people with an interest in "responsible" biking (huh? what's that?) and are biking brothers / sisters. You rarely see the WD website advertised, non-bikers seeing the stickers with the website doesn't care about it, it only lets the WD's know it's a fellow WD. (That's how I tracked Swanniebraai down at MMC!)

OK, advertising is expensive, but we should get more people to write about biking in more publications - eg letters to the papers, magazines etc, and more articles about biking. If we can get 5% of the population to be more bike-friendly, it will be a huge improvement to bikers in general.

9/11 off

So does the numerous Afrikaans 'stamp paartie treffers' cd's as well.

If something sells it doesn't necessarily mean it is good...

Have to agree. This movie made buckets full of money:

Good it was not. Actually, I still have nightmares about the shittiness of that 3 hour torture experience....

Agreed - as what I always say with regards to what I consider k@k music - you can't blame the creator for exploiting/utilizing a gap in the market.
That unfortunately says more about the majority of the market and the masses than the guy who is creating stuff to please them...

I have to disagree a little here.
This does say that its about the money and not about the quality, and therefore the love of the subject.

I gave up watching it during the opening scene... So it was like a 3 minute torture sequence.
