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.

I haven't had a chance to update my blog lately, I have been so busy at work and there just doesn't seem to have been any time to sit down and get on with it. Also as you can see my cat gets in the way!
Here's a photo of my good friend Dick with his new bike, if you remember he came up here to Saldanha on a big HD Electraglide and he was considering the BMW K1300GT, well he settled on the 2010 R1200RT and what a fantastic bike it is! I'm jealous but the choice is between the new bike or the trip to Sturgis next year and I have made my decision. So if the dust cloud from the volcano in Iceland moves over the US of A by August next year I will definitely be buying a new RT! Dick is also considering coming on the Sturgis trip next year so watch out! Especially if there is Karaoke - nuff sed.
These next two pictures came to my email and I love them so I had to share; Oil - do not attempt to check level while riding.
and this one is the future wife, pretty much a perfect woman!
Janet's going to read this and will probably have something to say about that!
My next blog post which I will do over the weekend will cover the recent Slangkop rally which I attended with Frank and which was a total jol and a piss-up of note.

Andrew, great blog and I will be following it. Yea, she would be the "perfect" woman ;-) ha ha
I lived in SA, Johannesburg area from 75 to 85, originally from Mozambique. Never had a chance to go to the Cape when I was there, really miss it. You going to Sturgis? great, I've never been there but am also planning a trip out there. You would rent a bike or ship yours?
My brother and I are planning a cross country trip this year, I will be blogging about it.

Thanks for your comment George, and for reading my blog, my plan is to rent bikes in USA for the rally.
