JM, some of us are allowed bad days at work. Not everyone is at an age where the bosses allow you to take a nap behind your desk - like yourself. (what was it again 55 or 56?) :lol:  :twisted:

Agree... Same useless s[poefies]t from different members.  Please do a search on this forum, you will see that this was discussed many moons ago, and the conclusion:

You get idiots everywhere, even on Honda's - so stop generalising.

If you don't ride a KLR, you're shite. Fortunately we have our own lifestyle events now. I see the latest "adventure weekend" is being advertised for the KZN/Natal region.

Would love to go to one where we all (presumedly) have discussions on stuff like where do we get the cheapest stuff, how to be mean and stingy, and why it is good for your soul to ride a harsh single with no brakes to speak of and a thing called a doohickey. Then we will diss al the other brands and their riders in no particular order but including BMW, KTM and Vespa.

Sitting here on the sideline, I made a conclusion: The okes in the Cape are "die moer" in wiff each other. All the capie comments are negative(attitude). Not our falt that you have a k#k rugby team, k#k dealerships(not specifying brands),I dont know what k#k else! Attitude is the big problem manne. You guys should get together and get a lecture, you need it urgently!!! Hier kom k#k. Just fu@#ing enjoy your scoot, the way you decide to ride it and look at the lekka people around you. Their must be lekke people I believe(Ama ride ride, you are foresure one)

WRT BMW exclusive events and venue - just a question. Are only BMW bikes allowed at its offroad academy - cause I've notice a couple of other brands as well, amongst others KTM, Buell etc.  If this is a norm I assume that the argument regarding the BMW clan limiting events for its own is BS

jeez, I didn't think your bikes were THAT bad


:wink:

This whole issue has been discussed before, true
but I think we are slowely learning to talk about these things without offending each other. Soon, hopefully, we will stop bothering about it altogether and just focuss on friendships and rides, wherever they may be or whatever bike you use

If you register quickly, you can sitll get a small "number for life".  I mean, a sticker with number "11" looks much better than "124" on any bike...  8)   And Dave Petersen will put those who pay the most on TV first  :twisted:

When I tried to book for the 2007 GS Challange, Iwas told I can only attent on a BMW. Therefore, even when I get my GSA I will not go to anyone of their events. I'll rather support Alfie Cox :D

I also do not understand the "consumer Events" thing. I think you have to pay to attent the GS Challange :?:
So they sucker the guys further :D

As for the waving: Do any of you wave at other cagers when you drive with your cage? :twisted:
So why is it so important that bikers have to wave at each other?



Only kidding :D  :D

All brands are allowed at BMW offroad academies ...except KLR's...and for good reason
