Possible my worst day ??

Post by Wahl on 17th August 2008, 19:44

I probably had my worst day today, was merrily cruising on the highway from Badplaas today at around 140 - 150 wiht my 1200 GS (For those who don't know) when I saw this light approaching from behind, so as a good biker to another biker I moved out of the way and was duly overtaken by a 800 GS ..... as if I was standing next to the road

brag gat Cool

what can we say........the 800 is sommer a "bulletjie" and indeed faster than the 1200GS (the ST anyway) - not that speed is all that important but......2up it's a different story all together, just no substitute for cc's

I hope you joined the slipstream and let the 800 worry about what lies ahead and the law cheers

Wahl
You should not feel intimidated! You were just frightened by fast moving fellow BMW owner.
If you were passed by a Vespa, then you had reason!

Henk, I am afraid that when the "jeuk" starts, the "koeel is deur die kerk". Amazing how you start finding all the reasons in the world why your current bike is no longer good. Ai...yai...yai...Men and their toys I love you

At the moment I am waiting for my bankmanager to go on holiday. Asked him for a cheque book. Gave me a deposit book and said to try that one for a change. clown Before I buy another bike I first want to learn to ride well. But will be in the market for a bigger one very soon

You ouks are all too old for the 1000RR. Grow up (and older) men, and just enjoy the youngsters taking our places. Ha Ha Ha

Some people - you cant take them anywhere - and in Henk's case you cant even dress him up nicely - think tar and feathers would be a waste of good tar and feathers. On a serious note - to each his own in liue of his/her bike choice.

hate to burst the bubble here, but the interest in superbikes – or for that matter any bike – has absolutely nothing to do with a strife to being young……….it has all to do with the very unique enjoyment on offer, and………

“mag die goeie Vader gee” that I will never get too old for a (fast) superbike.

If the people around perceive me to be too old for a superbike………..well with the greatest respect in the world……..then it’s their problem Wink
