hey welcome to wild dogs

please help the confused here. you post on wild dogs think bike and some other site.. do you work? or do you have one of those cushy jobs that happen on their own? ;D
do you live in benoni? if so how do you start your trip from kempton park? or is your bike so efficient that it only starts using petrol by the time you get to kempton? ;D ;D ;D

I cant find a picture of your bike please post a pic...( ok so I'm not like everyone else that just knows all the bikes ever made)
oops gprs connection a bit slow
found another one


I don't post a lot. So just because I'm registered on many forums, doesn't mean I spend all my time posting/lurking on them. I just like many opinions instead of biased ones as you may get if you only read one forum.

From Benoni on Great North, through Kempton, past Tembisa down Allandale is the shortest route from Benoni to Rivonia. 35km in total. It takes me about 40 - 45 minutes either way, which is not too bad in my opinion.

The bike above is waaaaay too bling for my tastes. Check out the pics I posted to see what I consider "nice".
Don't waste any more time.

Just a quick correction - I'm don't have a biased opinion because I read only this forum, I read only this forum because I have biased opinions ...

 ;D ;D ;) :P >:D ::)
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

None taken, I just don't use smileys a lot. Where in Benoni do you stay? I'm in Farrarmere.

LOL! But then you need to have spent (or are still spending) time on other forums in order to know your preference, right?

WELL I know us Benoni boys don't like to boast about our white mountain and all but seeing as we all live in the same area we should get together some time for a quick beer. Just a thought use it dont use it. Only problem is timing ;D

Taillight-guy? That was you?! Cool, and thanks. Did you wear a blue-white-black striped helmet this morning? Because I spotted another yellow GS at Kentucky as I was filling up at the Engen.

I commute every day from Farrarmere to Rivonia, so we ought to see each other quite often.

Sounds like a plan. Now for the timing. TB meets at the coffee shop in Sunninghill every Friday morning, so we could even make it there if you work nearby.

Caged biker, I'd hate to be you. If you see me in traffic, let me know and we can pull over to have a chat. I'm having problems with my tail-light again. Now the parks are on, but the brake light don't want to work. Aaarg!

Hello Benoni boys! (ex Farrarmere I am...)
