Ek kan onthou ek het R5.00 sakgeld gekry per maand.  Ek het 50c se petrol ingegooi en het vir 2 weke lank elke dag skool toe en terug gery en in die middae netbal toe.  Dan praat ek nie van naweke se rondrits nie. 

Nou is 50 c se petrol nie eers 'n walm nie.

Looks like your bike is still going strong after 30 years  ;D. This was seen recently at a filling station on the raod between Elliot and Graaf Reinet. Note the Adventure conversion with the spots !!

My first bike, 1955 James Cadet, 150 cc, taken 1957, Wonderboom hill.. My worst bike, only one I didn't regret selling.
My first new bike, also my first Honda: 1960 Honda Benly, 125 cc. Taken on my grandfather's farm, Altyd Somer, near Cradock. Sorry, pic won't load. Have to troubleshoot first.

Hy verduidelik nou nog,  veral as hy gewyn is! Ons kap hom nogsteeds n ignore, maar dan laat hy ons verstaan sy broer is moer groot en hy sal ons hard moer!

Golden MEMORIES..missing some of my bike pictures but found the following:
After weermag (2years) bought my Honda 550 K3 with my army bonus...cash en kontant.
Salesman said....Kobus bike is to small.. Ekk se NEE soek hom.
3 Months later Suzuki GS1000E... was blue, but later changed to Black with a chrome chain...as I was a clean fighter . >:D
Same Gs1000E in the 1981 ...I think.. Johannesburg snow.
Next one was the GS 1000 G shaftie..
Later added a Yoshimura kit.
Doing doghnuts and racing on Kyalami....when it was still the old track.
Some day in Clubhouse nr 3 cylinder decided to go for fresh air.
I could NEVER break that shaft or the rest of the motor...only Mr Yoshi's piston.
Then one of the first 1100 Katana's in SA had to bear my abuse.
Last picture when my friends 495 two stroke BIT me.......from then on I was afraid of offroad.  Only at 54 I am slowly getting back on the dirt.. :biggrin:


I WOULD RATHER BE AN HONEST ASSHOLE .... THAN A FLIPPEN LIAR !   


Ducati 100cc Mountaineer, Honda 550 K3, Suzuki Gs1000E, Suzuki Gs1000G, Suzuki 1100 Katana, BMW R1100RT, BMW R1150RT,,,,,All gone. Only 2014 ST in the garage at the moment... And Honda XL 600

Dis nou lekker herinneringe.  Hier is 'n paar van myne van die laat '70s en die '80s

1.  Honda 250 Elsinore.  Lekker ronddonner fiets maar hantering was vrot.  My lekker moertoe op hom geval.

2. TT500 naby Lusikisiki en amper op die strand by Port St Johns.  Na ek uit die weermag uitgeklaar het, vat ek my pay en koop vir my 'n Yamaha TT500, laai my army slaapsak voorop en 'n rugsak agterop en ry al die pad kuslangs af tot by Jefferies Baai.  Bietjie gaan kop skoonmaak.  Julle wil weet van "travelling light" of van adventure travel? Daar's hy.  Daai fiets het geen ligte gehad, geen speedo, geen niks, was pure offroad gewees.  Die ander foto is by Port St Johns, sommer daar op die strand (amper) gekamp, net so.  Kom nou net van die grens af en is bang vir niks en niemand nie.
  
3.  Kawasaki Z1R op Long Tom Pass.  Toe juk my gat vir spoed en ek koop die Z1R.  Klein brandstof tenk, lekker tenkslap as jy te vinnig deur 'n draai gaan maar kon lekker cruise oppie oop pad.

4. Eddie Lawson Replica.  Windgat fiets, baie gemaklike seat gehad, lekker gery.  Maar daar het ek finaal vir Kawasaki se slegte hantering gegroet.

5.  Yamaha FZR750.  Die fiets kon loop dat jou oë traan.  Dit was hierso so 1984 - 1986 as ek reg kan onthou.  Maar daai fiets het geloop vir sy tyd.  Het 'n Bassoni pyp op gehad dink ek en was so luid gewees my ore het vir 'n paar uur na 'n rit nog gesing.

Ja, lekker tye met baie goeie herinneringe.

Ja man, hy het lekker gemaklik gery of hoe.  Ek het omtrent die land stukkend gery op hom.  Die groenes was vir my bietjie "te".
