My mother in law. (She liked it)

A 10 KG bag of dog food slung over the tank (FJ1200)

When I still had the vespa - everything from my guitar to braaiwood, coolerboxes, my bullsak (army)...

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Waars die goeie ou dae? 8)

Twee roetes Koerante(Burger)±60 op die Gamma se tenk.

Saterdae was rof, veral as die goed begin afbliksem, kan nog mooi onthou, baie mense het nie hulle Snuffelgidse gekry nie ;)

My rooi en wit RZ met sy Wildcat exhaust was ook die vinnigste in die skool  8)

Ek het 'n pel met 'n Gamma gehad en hy het alles probeer om my weg te ry. Selfs later 'n nuwe Gamma gekoop en hom ge-"Port" en alles. Die man het 'n obsessie gehad. Toe eendag toe daag hy my weer uit vir 'n dice - oor 25km nogal. Daar was passe, straights en als in die roete. Hy jaag toe soos 'n maniak by die pas af en sny die draai om 'n blinde draai. Die arme ou oom in die Carona het nie geweet wat tref hom nie. Bike moer toe (die Carona ook).

Sorry for the 9/11 guys  :) I started a new thread here: http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=8677.0

Other than the groceries I usually buy, I have carried our sample LED Street lamp, and when we were building at the house I carried fun stuff like the pole to hold up the little eating counter in the kitchen.  I've also transported plants for the garden, oh and my kids, they're the stangest of the lot... they move around a lot more than the street lamp...

Back in the days when I was a boy, two up on a 50cc Garelli in mid winter to the top of the local hills, in first wide open just making it. 
Load goin up two of us a box of 3 ferrets and a bag with two dozen purse nets, coming downhill (luckily), the same but FROZEN plus 7 or 8 Rabbit,s.

All gone after lunch, the price of a pint and the value of a Rabbit always had a balance.

I used my Suzuki GT200 to take my RC plane out to the airfield about 15 k's from home.
