- Hi, I'm the webmaster of this site, and the lucky owner of 'Mr. Badger'.
I started with Brenda Buttercup when I got her for a song when I mentioned to a friend that I was in the market for a bigger scooter to replace my 150cc Vespa. At first I didn't want her, thinking that BMW bikes must be just like their cars - common. How wrong was I...
Brenda and I did the Anysberg trip in 2005, and we did the introduction to off-road rider training at Zevenwacht, and Julie and I and Brenda had a threesome at the ''Intro to offroad rider with pillion training''.
I have been married 20 years, and have two sons - one doing 3rd year Property Studies at UCT, and the other Sound Engineering. I sold Brenda to my eldest when I got Mr.Badger - a beautiful blue and white 2003 R1150GS - in 2007/8. Now my wife Julie owns Brenda and we do trips together.
Mr.Badger is a bike among men. I have done the intermediate and advanced offroad courses with him, and practise skills challenges and allsorts. If I drop him, he just lands on his tappet-cover protectors, waits for me to pick him up, then shakes the sand out of his pelt. He has over 170 000km on the clock and is still going strongly.
TrainingI am the first person to have completed every one of the courses provided by Country Trax and I was awarded a certificate for this honour, as well as a complimentary training course. I believe that regular training and courses are essential to maintaining your riding skills and improving your safety on a bike.
