    The night before the Amashova race, I phoned the only pasta/pizza joint in PMB, and asked them if they do take-aways. I placed an order for two pasta dishes (take-away), and was told that I could collect within half-an-hour. Arriving at the restaurant, I asked if my order was ready. 10 minutes later, I'm told that it will be ready in 10 minutes time. No problem, I say, I'll wait. 10 minutes later she returns and gives me some lame excuse about a backlog or something, and if I would mind waiting for another half-an-hour or so.<br />All in all, this joint couldn't make me a stupid pasta dish within an hour.<br /><br />Know this, Mister Restaurant owner, your service stinks! But word of mouth gets around....

    Ahh, the classic stories of big bad Jo'burg people going to a little town and actually expecting their food in less than 3 hours, how could you VO2?<br /><br />Ha ha, I wonder how this place handles the comrades? <br /><br />I was lucky, stayed with a mate on a beautiful farm 60 km's outside maritzburg, nice home cooked meal the night before. Pity I nearly took out my Alfa's sump for a second time on the farm road

    The 145, couldn't afford the 147. Plus only a small number of them were imported so I feel a little exclusive. Just have to remember that they aren't made for dirt roads. Or long journeys. Or anything requiring reliability. Or Sanity....<br /><br />But it is SOOOOO much FUN.

Ask me I know I won a race that took me on farm roads once. Race planners were in a small dorpie and didn't realise that not everyone has a mountain bike. Needless to say I road even the mountainbikers into the ground that day. Of course the 3/4's of tar road did help get the distance between me and them.
