    Red face Lekker in die Kaap!

    Hey guys, as there's no thread/sticky for South Africa I figured that I'd make a thread that we could use.

    Once I am done with my build, I'll be updating this with details - rides, breakfast runs, etc!

    I hope I've not overstepped my station, but since there's a few of you Suid Afrikans here I've made this a sticky.

    I don't read Dutch or Afrikaaner but you may wish to retitle.... or not.

    YeboYes. I do wonder how many CX/GL owners, riders, enthusiasts there are in whole of the RSA . Maybe a few more than just the handful of CX/GL forum members here. Groete uit die Vrystaat !
