Welcome to my blog, these are the ramblings and musings of an (upper) middle aged biker and if you enjoy braais, (barbeques) beers and motorbikes then hopefully you will enjoy what Janet and I do; we do lots of braais, we drink lots of beer and we tour South Africa on our motorbike, which at the moment is a BMW R1200RT. Join us, read about what we do and please leave us your comments.

Parties and weddings

There's a lot of stuff going on this weekend; there's a James Bond theme birthday party at the West Coast School where a friend of ours is celebrating his 40th birthday, we were invited even though we're quite a lot older and I'm sure it's going to be a serious jol.
Check this out, there's also a bring and braai wedding at the Blue Diamond on Saturday! This one I'm sorry we're missing, because the usual biker customers at the Blue Diamond are welcome to attend. I'm having a bit of trouble imagining a "bring and braai wedding" so that would be really interesting, what does the wife do while the groom is standing in line at the braai waiting to braai her chops? While all this is going on all of the usual biker scum are going to be sitting at the bar or revving their motorbikes, as I said I'm sorry I'm missing this one. But aint bikers good folks?
As far as the Polar bear run is concerned it looks like the weather is going to be pretty good, I mean for goodness sake who the hell rides a motorbike to the coldest place in South Africa in winter?! Ten of us older guys do!
Dave's coming through tomorrow evening and we will leave at sparrow fart on Saturday to meet all of the other guys in Velddrif, it's going to be a very interesting ride and I"ll tell you I haven't been so keyed up for a ride for a long time.
If there's anyone reading this drivel I will be updating next week with details about the run to Sutherland, there may even be photos because there are a couple of "characters" on the run so watch this space!
Keep the rubber side down and hang onto the cables Bros!
