Ta daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

Will pop in the post soonest!

Mmm. No chance you could have gone with the bike :)
Thanks a mil for the efforts.
What was the presentation like? Did they have a speaker talking about the book?
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

I would really like to get one of those books. Can late-comers still order?  Maybe another bulk buy for PE. :peepwall:

I didn't stay for the launch.

Had a bit of a chat with one or two dogs and then, before the queue got too long, got our books and ducked. Had somewhere else to be.

Greg looked a bit surprised when I asked him to sign the books HAHAHAHA

Greg gave a brief rundown on the book and went through a slide show of some photos that did not make the book.I have only browsed through the book and it looks good.Nice to FC and few others,oh and Henk too.

Hi guys,

please don't get upset, but I haven't mailed any of them... been a bit frantic here.

Will get them out next week.... PROMISE!

Read most of the book on the night after the launch- enjoyed it tremendously and certainly has me planning a few new trips!
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

Wooohoooo! I made a 70 cent profit from the single books  :imaposer:

Finally got round to going to the post office, but didn't manage to get round to the shops to buy bubble envelopes.... so, I made do with what I had around the house.... it involved a lot of buff tape and cling wrap.  :biggrin:

Will pm your individual tracking numbers.

Sorry for the delay guys.

Yes. I saw it at an Outdoor Warehouse in Pretoria East

You can also order it from Kalahari or form the source, Mapstudio.

Google is your friend.

Was a bit stressed my buff tape / clingwrap / envelope combo wouldn't hold...

Glad it made it there in one piece.
