Ok, well this is the story in a nut shell.....rather long nut shell, wahahaha, sorry, ok keep focused (think i got water on the brain)

Umm, woke up and it was ****ing down, yuck, ok, got togged up, hopped on boney and headed for The Quaffery in Wynberg....only to discover that the Quaffery isn't where the map says it is!!!!! Nice, looking for the coffee shop in the soup...anyway, saw MS down the road, went over to him, had a pow wow and decided to go to Constantia Village shopping centre, to the Seattle Coffee Bar. The three of us (thanks to you other knob heads who bailed because ..."we didn't want to get our bikes dirty/leave the warm body in the bed next to me/couldn't be bothered" We didn't need your sorry asses in anycase ;)

But the best part was the ride home. Obviously as we left the heavens opened, i had to put petrol in at the garage at the centre so we pulled in there quickly (MS in leather jacket and jeans, me in sexy oil skins, Wellie's and raincoat over leather jacket) Anyway, it was rainging and blowing so hard I couldn't open my tank at first cause the rain was blowing under the afdakkie and straight onto us/into tank...Right, so eventually get some petroleum and head off back into the mother of all storms and down to the freeway and over the mountain pass... Thank goodness we got to work in one piece. Thanks Midnight for the effort, and Scorp, even tho you're sick :badgrin: thanks for coming (in your car, woes ;) ) lol at least you made the effort. To the rest of you *%#& :roll: :roll: Next time? When the sun's out maybe?
Right, just to prove we were there and someof us on bikes, a view thru the window

Silly me, thinking this was a done deal, a regular feature.
I've been too busy at work to log on and find out, so I'm up at sparrow's fart this morning and arrive at premises like 06:15 or at least half an hour earlier than my two previous arrivals. No bikers nor proprietors, and not a security guard nor a gate keeper in sight, and the vultures are sitting on the railway fence... just watching me. I aint stickin' around - Dewaal drive at that hour is a temptation not to be ignored, but the stuff they pass off for coffee here at work ... yuck!
See youz next time maybe. :?

Scorp

I just went for a ride along the M5 again with no plan, but I found the coffee, oh yes I did. Two cups of that stuff and off we go. The cops trying to catch me now to charge me with reckless and/or negligent drivng, (I was riding so I think I stand a chance here) raucous behaviour, inciting violence, sexual harassment, insulting an officer, and the investigating officer wants to know... what's in that stuff?

Sorry to hear about the dropped Kawa L-Plate, glad to see you OK.

Now that the holidays are over and everything is back to "normal" and I'm back on the shifts, it's my loss that I'm not joining youz for coffee ona Friday morning, however, the Friday night meeting at the Brauhaus wozzent a bad idea either, and I'll be honest that dark brew in the tall mug would tempt me anytime sure enough...

Pity you can't make it anymore, you were one that we could always rely on to be there...Crombie and Jingles miss you ;) so does that coffee stuff you like so much. Don't think we do the Brauhaus thing...i don't drink and ride, personal rule, but we'll make a plan of sorts, plus Friday's you're generally feeling real tired

Well thanks to Midnight Special, L-Plate, Alec and Scorp for joining me for Sparrow's this morning, dedication guys!!! (I know i coulda slept more after that gastly hot night we had and the attack of the Mozzie's) Cromby's spot is looking really good now, has a whole new and improved smoking section for those that puff as well as the introduction of coffee tasting (last thursday of the month) and whiskey and cigar evenings...if anyone's in the area they should give The Quaffery a go!!!!!

Advisory : Heavy falls of rain are likely in places over the Cape Peninsula, Boland, Overberg late on Friday through Saturday morning. Strong to gale force west to south-westerly winds are expected to set in between Cape Point and Cape Agulhas early Saturday morning, accompanied by very rough seas exceeding 5 metres. These conditions are expected to spread rapidly eastwards, reaching Plettenberg Bay later. Moderation from the west is only expected Sunday.

It should be ok in the morning, dont plan any rides over the weekend if you want to go East, Sunday should be ok on the West Coast :idea:

Hehehe If that was agro then I dont know... Thanks for the concern but I have my reasons why I refer to it as a "Fear" I learnt to bike when I was young and I thought bikes were toys. Only once I got the scare of my life did I realise it wasn't. It left quite a psychological scar that has taken me a while to get over which I finally have started to overcome. I am glad for the choice of starting small as even the 400 has taught me things no one told me when they taught me to ride. These will one day mean the difference between saving my life or becoming a statistic of road accidents. I grew up reckless and not respecting the rules of the road etc. I have appeared in court on a number reckless driving charges.

Gladly with age came maturity and respnsibility.

MS/ Reaper/ whoever, take my word for it, fear is a good thing to have at times and also read between the lines of what SRXy is saying. My motto is " rather be a living coward than a dead hero", speed is not everything when on a bike. There is less skill to master in speeding with a bike than the actual skill needed to handle the bike when the S**t hits the fan and a car turns infront of you.(Thats fear!!!) I used to be one of those guys who would go out on week-ends just looking to out run anyone and anything on the road. Six years ago I took a drastic look at skill and fear for the first time in my life when my wife had a blow -out on her front wheel at 80km/h. She lost control of the bike and broke her neck and passed away two days later. I was at her side when it happend and it cuts me like a knife when I play it over in my mind. I know that she was not speeding but had she had had more skill and fear of what could happen at any time while riding the bike she very well may have been alive today. The magic word when looking at riding is to gain as much SKILL as you can. I know you might say, yeh sure skill,skill, skill. But I can assure you that it the key. If you fear it don't touch it until you are certain what fear it is and deal with it first.Once you know what it is you fear only then is it safe to face it head on.
Also don't think, ag you have only got a little 400 it is nothing to handle and you know her inside out. That is a mistake, you can die just as quickly on a 400 as on a 1000. I ran a stunt school and had many a young guy come up to me and say, "hey I want to be able to wheelie at 160km/h, can you teach me". I used to turn them away and say, "sure I can teach you but can't teach you not to die, go home and come back when you respect life and the bike" I hope this did'nt bore all of you but that it gave you a little food for thought.Riding at 300km/h does'nt make you a greater man than the one you pass riding at 120km/h.MAYBE I JUST MISSED THE POINT THAT WAS BEING MADE BY ALL OF YOU AND GOT CARRIED AWAY. IF SO PLEASE SOMEBODY PLEASE,PLEASE PLEASE SLAP ME,HEHEHEHEHEH).

Just block her tail pipe with a ragg every so often and if she has a bearing knock you will hear it soon enough.(heheheh, don't leave the ragg in there or you wont have an engine anymore). :lol: :lol: :lol:

a bearing knock on such new bikes??... isn't it just valves tapping?? does it just run rough at low revs or does the knock get worse as the revs go up?

Nakes, it has been confirmed all round bearings.

Remember there is a big difference between a shim noise on valves and a bearing knock. I know a hell of a lot of R1 and R6 riders and their bikes are still running perfect. So dispite my little set back it is still thumbs up all the way for the R1 and R6.

So it's a noticable knock rather than a tap... ?... so it's just some R6 and R1's? an indication of poor build quality maybe?

I think the "fear" Reaper has is the embarassment he will have to endure in having to throw his undies away in public after he hits the 300km/h mark. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry for your loss capetown.

When I said fear I actually meant the fear of not knowing what to do in the situation I found myself with that monster bike. I had gone from a DT50 to a 1100GSXR in a matter of months and no one bothered to teach me the dangers. So for 16 yrs it has been eating at me whether I can handle it and has just been building.

So now the 400 has proven to me that I need to fear one thing..... The reckless prick/prickette riding the bike because if I respect the bike and know that danger lurks everywhere if you are not cautious , I can just as easily get killed on a 400 as I could on that 1100 I affectionately call SATANS SPAWN.

Danm, you spoilt the fun I was just about to buy him a new pair of undies for when he hit the 300km/h mark. :D :D :D
