Someone from Port Elisabeth here?

Hi to everybody,

After i have been riding down to southafrica i wanted to ship my bike from Port Elisabeth. Now after waiting 6 months someone told me my bike is still standing there and has not been shiped.

Now im looking for someone who would be so cind as to go to the company in PE to find out if my bike is realy still there and may be take a foto of it. I dont want to book a flight, come down to see ist somewhere else by now...

Thanks a lot, Tobi

Hi Tobi

I'll see if I can find someone who might be able to do that for you. Hang on a bit before you book any tickets...

Cheers

No shiping will be to expensive. I will come down to PE my selfe to ride the bike back home. After my accedent i allready traveled 500 km on it so basicly it is all right. I will take a new Break, new Lampmask and everything on the plain.
Im dreaming of traveling the westcoast scince a few months so why not do it now

cu some day, Tobi
