ZX14 Wisdom!


Wisdom and a ZX14.

This news letter is dedicated to Chris Swanepoel, a member of the Rockriders Bikers Club in Pretoria!

My breakfast run on the 19th December 2008, with a few members of the Rockriders Bike Club, summarized in a nutshell:

1. Chris Swanepoel�s wisdom: � Ride your own pace, and never forget that! Then you will be able to ride tomorrow again, while you enjoying the zx14 bike ride". Thanks Chris.
2. My zx14, with only 2000 kilo�s on the clock, is runned in after we arrived at the breakfast venue.
3. My zx14�s tires, brand new, even showed worn thread on the side of the tires.
4. My number plate is holding me back!
5. I now know how to ditch toll gates! (Oops!)Well�why not?
6. Ride with your high beam on; yes force the other motor car drivers to see you. Thanks Deon.

Vrydag was regtig �n heerlike oggend om die zx 14 aan te skakel. Eintlik was ek mos al 04:00 reeds wakker. Dit gebeur nie sommer met my nie. Dit moes die opgewondenheid gewees het. Dit is vakansie tyd en ek wou begin ontspan, daarom kon ek nie wag om vir Deon, Chris en Helmut te ontmoet nie. Hulle is van die Rockriders Bikers Club en Chris sowel as Deon besit ook zx14�s.

Ons het die mooiste stukkie pad (roete) gery wat ek lanklaas beleef het. Om die waarheid te sê, ek het nie geweet daar is so mooi roetes hier naby ons voordeur nie. Glo dit of nie, die pad is in �n goeie toestand , tot gister toe nog moet ek seker by voeg.

We enjoyed a �four stroke breakfast� from the menu of the Auto Cradle Estate in the Magaliesburg area. The breakfast was awesome thank you!

Helmut suggested another route back for us, which was excellent in choice. We ended up close to Fourways and visited an exotic motor dealer showroom. You know those Lamborghini, Ferrari and Mercedes types, those nice expensive ones.

We ended up back in Centurion at some known night club/restaurant which does not stock a much known draft?
So we moved seats over to an adjacent spot and ordered ice cold Windhoek Draft!

Ek het my doodgelag vir Helmut. Hy ry sommer Bikes agterste voor as hy mooi girls sien. Dan praat hy ook van ander 1000 cc items. Hahahaha. Daar het ons gesit en lekker gesels seker tot 14:00 toe.

I can�t wait to ride this very same route again, even if I have to do it on my own.
Thank you to the members of The Rockriders Bike Club.
