During my vacation I decided to re-visit Lito's special spot:

"..explore the beautiful surroundings via some of the roads less travelled. "
It is far easier to destroy than to create.

Words, words - words.

"Whoso pulleth this sword from this anvil ..." nah, not those words! wrong Auther

"Old men have grey beards..." Nah not those iether

Just some official notification that an environmental study is in progress and that you can contact them if you want to because some rich dude(s) are gonna put up a boring house/guest house for the filthy rich exclsively so that the environment can be destroyed with a large parking lot for Mercedes Benzes etc etc blah blah...

Ja SGB, I had BOTH done.

The rear was sorted over 4000 kays ago, holding up well. The front just cracked in it moer in, and I had it welded yesterday. Stripped the bike to the engine, all the exhaust pieces off (good time to clean with steel wool) and reassembled. Got it back together and for a nice hard ride late last night.

Lekker........... ( i think the zorsts are cracking cos I am in the water too much and the cold hot cold hot cycle is killing it)
