You're not gonna believe this; I stopped outside the local biker bar, kicked out the side stand and sat casually on my steed as I lifted my helmet off. My steely gaze took in my immediate surroundings as I shook my hair loose, I automatically assessed whether there was any danger that needed to be dealt with and allowed my coiled, tensed muscles to relax before I entered the bar. In spite of these defence mechanisms which have been ingrained by years of hardship this girl was entering my cell phone number into her phone as she walked away! Unbelievable!
This is not such an unusual picture, he could be exercising (Yeah right!), he could be running away from the Police, he could be running to a soccer game or he could be running away from something else;Luckily for this guy he was able to get away by jumping onto the back of the camera vehicle because hippos are responsible for many deaths in the wilds, they may look fat and ungainly but they are very fast. I have had some close encounters with these beasts out in the bush and on the Zambezi river and I gained a healthy respect for them, but that's another story.
It looks like I might have found a new zorst already! Dick phoned to say that a friend of his wants to sell his "Scorch" pipe because it's too noisy! That's exactly why I want one! He wants R600 for it which is quite a bit less than I was expecting to pay so I have asked Dick to organise it for me, even if I don't like it I will surely be able to get R600 back. Watch this space, hopefully we will soon have a really good sounding R1200RT disturbing the neighbours!
Continuing with my "Out of Africa" pictures here is one that is rather disturbing; why is this guy running? What is he running from?
This coming weekend Dick and Janet and Joe and Annie are coming to stay and we are planning some good food so keep reading, if the weather's good we will ride down to meet Dick and Janet halfway and I've got some good braais planned.
Stay safe, keep the shiny side up and keep reading this blog!
