A place close to New Road, pref one that opens at 6:00. Kopdood is busy at 6:00 with non bikers thanks to Think Bikers supporting the venue every Friday and attracting the non bikers.

Have any of you asked to speak to the manager of these venues? Ask them if they would be prepared to open at 6:30am to serve 10+ bikers each Friday.

If you don't ask the Manager, you won't get the answer you are looking for. Give them the other Shop Owners number that is hosting the Kopdood, jumpstart etc. as references for them to contact and find out that we are not there to breakdown the place.

Sorry ....didn't make our inaugural one either....had MULTIPLE domestic crisis to handle....and chopped my fingers up in my boy's fan....:-(

Why would a fan keep on running if there's no key in the ignition??? I know Phoebe (my Buell) does, but I'm used to that, but Sting (R6) has never done that??? Now the battery is totally dead cos I didn't have a clue where to disconnect it. :dontknow:

It was absolutely manic..... we had 3000 food packs, which disappeared within 25 minutes, it was a dog show...... my feet do not belong on my body right now. But apart from that it all went off without a hitch and the client is happy.

There are 2 more next week, will find out on Monday when and where, then we roll out all over SA, Africa, the States, Europe and Asia..... Hope I am on a plane to somewhere nice too!

I made it!!! Yippee ..... sadly, I got there (with Hubbie) at about 7-15 so I missed the rush.

But what a morning - firstly we stopped at the petrol station for hubby to fill up. As we pulled out, this OLD woman in an OLD yucky yellow car just pulled almost into me - luckily I was going so slow I could stop and not fall off. I couldn't remember where the hooter was so I yelled hoping she would hear me and stop. Winds the window down and I tell her she didn't look where she was going, just pulled out - has the cheek to tell me I am RUDE and that I should become a woman .... last words I heard floating out her window were not repeatable!! So now I am peeved to say the least, riding down the road and a black guy in a white car pulls in front of me - when he sees me he got the skrik of his life and was apologising all over the place. Now I feel much better.

Riding to catch up with hubby who has gone ahead, we are cruising past Oakmoor station when a bus just decided to u-turn in the middle of the road. Brake lights flashing in front of me and we screech to a halt! After that, it went better, but I shivered and shook and sniffed my way through coffee - good to meet a couple of guys this morning! Next week am gonna try to find the ER coffee lot.....

1) When you go down the R101 (Old JHB rd), the robot after Oliphantfontein rd @ the next robot at the Caltex Garage (robot before Teaxers) turn right to the corporate park, then first entrance left.

2) If you come on the Ben Schoeman take the Oliphantsfontein off ramp, turn left towards Midrand, @ T junction right on R101 and 2nd robot left (just after Caltex) then first entrance left.

He looked at me to be the eyes of age

Nope - not a good enough reason - coffee at 6am - on the bike by 7am and you will have reached your client by 7-20am .... which makes you 25 minutes early for your appointment ....

or quick coffee at 6-30am.....

And rugrat gets to school at 6am! Now this I wanna see

On another note, hubby cannot ride tomorrow, so is there anyone coming along the Chloorkop/ Allandale road or the Olifantsfontein road to coffee in the morning that I could maybe tag along with .... and if so at what time ..... and I just KNOW AMZ is gonna say yes for about 5am (groan)..... ?

Yes. Olifantsfontein Road. Most fÍkking definitely not 5am!!! :tongue3:

Mags will tag along. I suggest we meet at the onramp to the R21 North at 06:25 to 06:30. I won't know if you have read this, so I'll PM you my cell number. SMS me if you will be there.

Are we counting the 3 guys who stopped and we thought they were TB'ers but they sat at a different table so were clearly not - cos that would be 15!!!!

Yep, isn't she lovely??? Just a pity she doesn't have real brakes :roll::roll: - which I have only just found out this morning - I almost took my own hubby out :oops::oops:

Thanks to the BMW for leaving me a special parking space :badgrin::badgrin::badgrin:

sleepy, that Harley of yours had a discussion with the RT this morning. Never park next to a Beemer, you should know that by now. :evil4: Apparently she figured out why you having problems with the SV. I have no idea what itís all about, but Iíve been told to convey this message, so donít shoot the messenger:-

Apparently it is due to your semicircular canal and vestibule which controls your sense of balance. WTF?

What can you do to try to resolve the problem?

Look forward at the horizon to help you with your sense of balance; especially during low speeds whilst trying to lane-split through traffic on Olifantsfontein (damn, those Harleys are clever). She went on to say (OK, this is hearsay. I admit, I have to trust the RT on this) that pilots experience a similar form of spatial disorientation when flying in the clouds. Looking anywhere but at the horizon at low speeds disturbs your sense of balance and that's why you go all wobbly on the ST Ė so donít even try to look for the flicker switch. :wink:

Tripper, do you believe any of this?? hehehehehe.

Nice meeting all of you this morning! :thumbleft:

Did you notice how the 3 okes were slipped TB z-folders with their receipts when they paid? Someone trained Mr Bo well. :wink:

22-08-2008, 10:28 AM
My Harley is a flirt - you should not let your RT pay so much attention!!!

But then again the RT shuffled over to make space when the Harley arrived, i saw him do it!!!!!

It was great to meet you all ......

Only hassle with Halfway Cuppa is, it seems the darned Beemers found us. This morning I looked to my left ... Beemers! I looked to my right .... Beemers! Behind me .... Beemers! EISH!

Just look at the list of first time visitors to Halfway Cuppa:

Avon - Beemer
Gemini - Beemer
Joanna - Beemer
Mags - Beemer

I wonder how they sniffed us out?

Avon, did I perhaps see you riding into an underground parking this morning at a certain large company - a little bit after I had left morning coffee? My eyesight isn't the greatest but it really looked like you ......:dontknow::dontknow::dontknow:

If it was, I have to say the RT??? is faster than the Harley - although I did take the scenic route!

Avon
22-08-2008, 11:31 AM
Nah sleepy, I doubt it, had brekkie first; but there is no doubt about the RT being faster than the Harley :wink:

Ha ha .... toooooo right .... most bikes are faster than this Harley ......

You have a double - I swear it .... was quite fascinated - since I've been riding the Harley i've seen the tally of bikes going from 3 to over 30 just for this section of the company!

Sadly, Avon, measured by modern day standards, both the RT and the DL are pretty slow. Then again .... slow is in the eye of the beholder .... or something like that. :evil4:
