    So sorry, do apologise - only saw the email from SARS this morning, it was delivered to my mailbox overnight and do not have your phone number, please pm your number to me.

    Guess it was inevitable that sooner or later I would be the last man standing....

    Maybe it was just teh easter Break that confused matters!

    Lets keep this going, maybe plan a mass ride for next week to coincide with teh SL project???

    The momentum has died.....

    Was the only one this morning. Traffic at it's best, choc-a-block bumper to bumper traffic from Gordon right through to Rivonia. Ideal opportunity.... One splitter, all other bikes in SL......

    Sad.

    there are no fast or Slow lanes in the real world all lanes apart from the left lane are overtaking lanes..

    But because you all use the wrong terminology the average user think think they can camp in the middle lanes as the cruising lanes

    I understand... i was a SL avoider but it just beats the stress of filtering through cars, plus you can go much much faster .. and the chances of someone puling into it are the same as a person changing lanes in front of you without indicating..
