Car 0, motorcycle 1
« on: October 05, 2010, 02:19:54 pm »
Long day at the office. The brief dashes to get warm(er) coffee had me noticing the weather outside my world of meetings and email.

So my brief lunch consisted of a dash across the city, up Kloof Nek and to the end of Table Mountain Road, then back and to Signal Hill. Fuggit it was nice.

Cars have nothing on us!  :thumleft:

I agree, best part(s) of my day is riding to work in the mornings and riding back at the end of the day  :ricky:

Yep felt the same today.When others get to work stressed with traffic,I pull up with shivers running through my body,my eyes wide open and a big grin on my face.

Eish, it seems I may have a new portfolio at the office ...... fark ...... it peeves me off!! As of Monday I look after the George Branch from PE, so every month I guess I'll have to visit the staff down there.  >:D It's going to be a real bind having to travel down there so often  ::)

That is a real drag Beagle Boy.
And due to the ongoing road works you'd have to take an alternative route. Something like R62. :mwink:
