Do you want me to help you type, ADV?



;D
Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.

Yep sure gotta agree with ADV ... I was initially apprehensive riding with these two "neanderthals" hehehe :D.. the rea ssuring bit was knowing that Peaches was there.... Thanks Carol :mwink:

The WDs up there know how these two ride... :o and especially that I had not really done any riding of significance since the beginning of the year,  ::) ::) I was even a tad nervous....and especially leaving in the dark in that 'wild territory of detours' of Joburg!!

...but I kno that ADV is waiting to put in their bit... :thumleft: :thumleft:

and for the WDs that know that I dont ride with a GPS....I retract my words....I will get one sometime soon.... :mwink: for me that was another new experience... :thumleft:

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Hey Debs, glad you came to your senses   :thumleft:

Also nice to hear you're out and about on your bike again. Hell must have been forever since you've done a decent trip?   :peepwall:
