I have given his e-mail to Jan, to request proof of payment - one says he didn't pay, other claims he did. He certainly gave many reasons as to why he couldn't pay, but maybe he is an honourable gentlemen and did pay and Jan somehgow missed the line on his statement!

To add to what Funacide has mentioned:

This is an extract from the lette rthat Jan had send to SF of Bark SA - I will only quote the last paragraph:

What do we learn from above? Never trust ANYBODY and, fellow Namibians, be VERY careful with our South African friends! Similar things have happened at our restaurants, bars, lodges, activity providers etc. Apparently Namibia is considered, as the previous “colony” it is, a place where one can get away with whatever, be it drunken driving, stealing fish and especially crayfish, ripping the sensitive countryside apart with two and four wheeled vehicles, leaving garbage on the beach etc. etc. Fortunately Namibians start to get the hang of it by now so no hard feelings next time you end up in genuine difficulties and are left at the roadside due to GP,WP or similar number plates. One way to discover how vast a country Namibia really is…

Jan Soderlund
Owner of Duneworx YAMAHA
Swakopmund, Namibia

P.S. Last week a friend of mine lost 8000 Rand to a RSA customer who run away without settling the bill for panel beating on his car…

From the above it is clear that Jan will definately think twice before he assist another biker in distress.

OK guys, the lynching is on hold for now...

The sad part is that shit like this makes it more difficult when others find trouble on their travels.

Whether what happened was true, or only perception, perception quickly becomes the "truth"

Maybe this thread should be posted to him to show our concern...ie. Help the Wilddog if in need?

This morning a guy on a BM did'nt return my jolly wave! Can you track him down? :peepwall:
But seriously, this van Heerden person and people like him is all of motorcycling's business, they erode away at the willingness of people to help willingly
and what will remain? To get helped at ridiculously high prices because it will be common knowledge that no-one helps bikers!
The oke was on a BM :imaposer:

Yip, regardless of the facts (which are as clear as mud), Jan's attitude to SAns is a concern. If we all take his line then quickly there will be no goodwill left in this world. I shall NOT treat every Namibian I meet as my potential enemy, regardless of Jan's xenophobia!  I know too many brilliant Nams.

Wat is die probleem? Betaal die man wanneer hy sy diens lewer... Dan gaan niemand ooit verder iets se nie. Almal help jou as jy betaal. Hou jou geld by jou en betaal dadelik.

Very dangerous to accuse someone in a public forum. Maybe he did pay, maybe he didn't but it would have been better to track him down and ask him first ...... just my 2-cents
