An Aprillia in need ….

On our way to our weekly Saturday morning
(07:00) gathering, I spotted the stranded Aprillia & rider in Atterbury
drive (east). In winter this means we get to see the “polar bears” responsible
for bringing the winter chills to the Highveld. I was urged by the “biker
brotherhood” instinct that lies rooted deep within all true bikers to make a
u-ey, and go assist the stranded “brother”. “Fernando” the gentleman introduced
himself as I parked on the sidewalk next to him with the big BMW Adventure.

Turned out the Italian beaute fell victim to the popular bike gogga….”leaving the park lights on”. I’m on the verge of
becoming an oubaas, which meant the body fought against push-starting this beaute.
So I picked up the trusted cell phone and called for back-up. Within minutes my
son and his friend were there….the young oukes with the elasticity & muscle
to push-start the Aprillia. It seemed as Fernando had his gym attire on….and
blerry goodness did they get a workout or what. As they took turns sitting on
the monster while the others did the pushing, they eventually ran out of descents.

Quick biker-to-biker brainstorming had the
young oukes pushing the Aprillia up in Atterbury to the Shell garage. I rode
ahead to go & organise the jumpers. No jumpers at the Shell had me running
to a fellow African from Mozambique who was busy filling up. The man gave me
jumpers in its rawest of raw forms……two cables, no “knypers” at the ends; just
cables with exposed wire on each end.

In no time the beemer had the Italian stallion idling, bringing to live the magnificent RSV4 motor.

A sound amplified by a carbon tip Ackropovic exhaust. What a pleasure it was to help a fellow biker
and as the biker saying goes; “we never leave a brother behind”. Hopefully the
“parking-light” gogga won’t strike again.

  1. ATVs are more dangerous because they are motorized and have a lot
    of momentum. This can also ensure that you get your car
    cover at the minimum price available, because some of the companies offer discounts,
    free shipping, and some other incentives which you can enjoy.
    When it is done drying, it is applied to the vehicle using a special press machine; so I guess it.

  2. So, what should you do to prevent your baby from becoming
    overstimulated. ” In many ways, nobody would want to sleep like a baby – waking multiple times a night, crying, needing help to fall asleep each time. And also, as anyone knows, sleep is precious with a small kid, particularly a new addition to the family unit.

  3. Their work with the less fortunate has been recognized and awarded by Mayor Martin O
    Malley and Mayor Sheila Dixon. If you need some support in deciding which gift
    and balloon delivery combination would be best, they
    have savvy gifting experts who will be pleased to give good results.

  4. The reasons that make Supra appealing are their difficult designs
    that are as ostentatious as they are authentic, sporting multiple
    buckles, gold chains and blinding patent leather.
    Also, vehicles that are in the other lane such as on a
    two lane boulevard or one way street should not pass a car that they see stopped at
    a crosswalk, because you, the pedestrian, may be crossing at that time and
    may not be able to see the car coming. We have all
    heard that they are everywhere and in everything.

  5. Skate boarding is a popular activity especially among the teenagers.
    maybe they thought this would improve their boarding skills in the water or maybe this
    started out as a practice to surfing as the two are pretty similar learning how to stay on top of a object in motion. When it
    is done drying, it is applied to the vehicle using a special press
