It's a small world

Postby made2care » Sun Aug 02, 2015 10:03 pm



So I'm taking the wife on vacation to Taos ( nope, she wouldn't hop on my bike).
About an hour into our trip I stopped at Boise city to fill up at which time I saw a gl 1200 pull up right next to me, except this one caught my eye since it had a South African flag on its windshield ( I am originally from South Africa).
I quickly went over to the chap and introduced myself in Afrikaans ( that's my native language that is indigenous to South Africa only. His eyebrows raised and ask me where in South Africa I was from, and the conversation took off from there. He shared with me how him and a group of his SA buddies come to the states each year, rent some bikes and head for Sturgis.
Anyway, it was really amazing to run into these guys in the middle of nowhere. I had to take some pics. Notice his 1200. He stated he just bought it and will store it here in the U.S. That way he has a ride to Sturgis each year instead of renting.
It's a small world!!
P.s. That's me in the neon green sneakers.

Wow, really cool. I don't think that I've ever come across the South African flag, down here, on a bike or cage. Hella coincidence.

Btw, I haven't gotten the database error that others are getting when trying to upload attachments yet, but it took about 20-30 seconds for the page to load after I clicked "post reply". It usually hangs on "waiting for images.goldwingdocs.com". It's been getting really bad again. Just about every post I make lately I'll lose when submitting, so I have it copied to the clipboard so I don't have to retype.

Maintenance time , Scott!!!

Edit: I just tried to upload an image of the search errors I'm getting but got the same database error :cry:

My condolences to wing admin friend and family. I just now read the newsletter. Very sad . He sounded like a very unique person. Thoughts and prayers again.

Yeah...figures that problem would occur two days after I left. It was a simple fix, but I was far away with no Internet access, so I didn't even know about the problem, let alone have a way of fixing it. I usually just cross my fingers and hope things go well in my absence - this time my luck ran out. :)
