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.

Forgive me for I have not done much riding lately, the weather has been so crappy (is that a word?) and I noticed, when I did get the big red machine out of the garage for a short ride to the Phoenix, that the battery was dragging a bit when I started the engine. Damn! I must get one of those "Battery optimisers" fitted.
On a more positive note I did manage to do well in the FA Cup pool competition on Friday, I managed to stay ahead of Frank 8 - 4 and then when Don came looking for a game I played him to a 1 - 1 draw before he had to leave so it's not all bad.
Seeing as how I have not got much to write about I am posting some "motivationals" for you all to have a look at, I love these things and will keep looking for more of them.
And my favourite one of all of the motivationals;
Stay focussed guys and stay lucky. One month to go before the Polar Bear run, Dick is coming up to stay over with us on the Friday night because it is an early start on Saturday, right in the middle of winter! I just hope that the whisky bottle stays in the cupboard!
