  1. How do you arrive at this conclusion? The average person has no idea what the TB emblem is. This is like saying "If you have a BMW or Audi or Lexus emblem on your car you may have expensive stuff in it." I would think that the thief would have to know what a travel bug was in the first place. Mine's just the scarab beetle image with a number underneath it. Not much to go on.

  3. The lawyers would take your case and make sure it lasts long enough to buy a couple of BMW's. Yep you nailed that one!
  4. They will take the toy out of the box and charge the same amount for a Happy Meal They will then sell the toy separate and the kids will whine, the parents will fold. It is a win-win for McD's The lawyers would take your case and make sure it lasts long enough to buy a couple of BMW's.
  5. Sounds like a bad infomercial Just attempting to explain the perspective of someone who likes being able to post a log from the field. Sorry if you've got a problem with people who happen to have a different kind of phone than you, and happen to like it. Fair enough. Just came off sounding funny, like the a bad infomercial. "before I started selling Amway I lived in a cardboard box, I had to dumpster dive for food. Now That I sell Amway, I travel the world, have a BMW M5, and live in a mansion." PS. My insult about the iPhone was directed at a certain person who thought I must be jealous of his iPhone, and a lot of other similar fanboy types, not every iPhone user. I have a few friends with iPhones.
  6. We found a TB and logged it that we have retrieved it. We have now placed it in a new cache, but I'm having issues. The travel bug is still showing up in the cache's inventory that we picked it up from... So I can't place it in the new cache's log. If someone could help me that would be great. Here's the cache GC1DWNZ. And the TB is MY BMW R100RS. It shows us retrieving it on the TB log. HELP!
  7. I find the GPS speed to be very accurate. I would absolutely believe it to be accurate within 0.1 mph presuming no signifigant interference (overpasses, trees, skyscrapers) I find that my Dodge truck speedo indicates about 1 mph faster than GPS at any speed above 20, and my BMW motorcycle reads 60 when the GPS shows 55. The BMW bikes are known for having "optimistic" speedometers, and in fact the specification from the factory allow up to a 10% error on the "optimistic" side, plus a static error of a few mph!
  8. quote:Originally posted by Breaktrack:Well, I'm right there with ya man! I'm making my purchase end of this month or begining of next. I looked at all the Harleys, etc, and found I was not in that price range...lol. Started looking at my options and researching. Found out some very interesting facts. Harleys now have about 52% foreign made components... I didn't know that. Especially when they are constantly blasting those who buy *foreign* bikes. So as I looked more into it, I found that Honday makes many of it's bikes right here in the USA... didn't know that either. So, I'm buying a Honday VTX 1300C and not going the *independent* route of looking like every other Harley owner. The Harley-Lemmings as I call them. LOL. Of course, the rivalry as far as I'm concerned is all in good fun, but some of the Harley folks are really serious about that stuff...hehehehe. Just makes it more fun to poke fun, know what I mean? That goes just about for everything made nowadays (foreign cars made in US and US ones made in foreign countries). I don't think I won't a showroom floor bike. I think I want something individual or less common. I guess something more customized and of course more costly. I never really thought of going back to school for anything, but the more I think about it, learning motorcycle repair might be pretty cool. I know my father in law would love it. He's always been into bikes. Both he and my bro in law raced dirtbikes and now my FIL has a BMW. Had a Harley, but wanted the BMW instead. Actually had 2 Harleys. Had the Buell for my MIL, but she never really rode it. He just sold them not to long ago. Speaking of "bikes". Wonder if Jeremy's Vespa has a Geo logo on it...lol Brian www.woodsters.com
  9. Let's see what this bring out of the woodwork. Recently I have been shopping for an article and was confronted with a combination of letters and numerals. They are specifically i3 and i5, amongst others. [No, I am not buying a BMW or a Hyundai.] What do these refer to and what is the 1 main difference between them?
  10. Yes, it is a bit annoying when people bring back a design over and over in different colors and metals just to make money. Absolutely agree with that statement! ~J no one has answered why this is a bad thing. most coin designers do it ALL the time. new colours, new metal combinations. does anyone think this is anything but a way to make money off the original design and dies of a successful coin? it is not for the generosity of spirit, otherwise coin designers would be selling coins for EXACTLY what they paid to have them minted. there is always profit, profit is a good thing. people, we live in a capitalist society so can we really point fingers at someone who is being a capitalist? anyone who buys coins at one price and sells them for another is doing the same thing. i think folks are ticked off because tranquility prices have gone so high as to make them almost impossible for the average coin collector to obtain. i can't afford a bmw sports car that i would truly love to have, but that doesn't make me angry at those that can afford it. a little jealous perhaps, but not angry. such is the way of the world. rsg I have to agree with you on this. When I started collecting, we were a community of traders. When I bought a couple of coins, I could count on the extras I bought being traders, and being able to get coins I missed. Supplies were that limited. Now, we mint and mint until everyone can buy one. Along the way, prices have skyrocketed. Trades are few and far between. Why trade when you can buy? Which is a shame since I valued the relationships I built by trading. But things fade away, and we all get on with life. But this coin, they could mint in 1000 new metals, and give them away, and I still wouldn't add one to my collection. Way too much drama from the folks who bring drama in everything they do.

  12. now how do you trade up or even a Nissan? Maybe a BMW or something? lol
  13. Nós alugámos uma carrinha BMW em Milão, com matricula italiana e isso pode ter sido determinante... ou não. Na Croácia aconteceu-nos um episódio caricato que tem a ver com este assunto. Ao estacionar num lugar muito apertado encostei o meu pára-choques ao pára-choques do carro que estava atrás. E quando digo encostar é isto mesmo, um toque quase imperceptível. De dentro do carro sai um Croata a dizer (num inglês muito macarrónico) que tínhamos um problema e que eu lhe tinha destruído o carro todo (que estava podre de velho). De tão caricata que era a situação (quase ao nível dos "Apanhados") não lhe dei muita saída, mas perante tamanha insistência, acordei em accionar o seguro do aluguer. Ele alegou que o carro não era dele, que era do patrão e que não tinha autorização para estar ali, por isso tínhamos que resolver o assunto de outra forma (passando-lhe umas notas para a mão). Discordei totalmente e se ele quisesse pensar no assunto do seguro, deixava-lhe o meu contacto telefónico e resolveríamos a coisa a bem. Assim fiz, dei-lhe o meu número de telemóvel. Ele reclamou comigo por aquele número de telemóvel estar errado porque o indicativo não era de Itália. Fiz-lhe prova de que não éramos italianos mas sim portugueses. Nessa altura ele quase me abraçou e disse: "Meu amigo, então acho que o nosso problema está resolvido. Pensei que eram italianos!" A Maja explicou-nos então que há bastante animosidade entre os italianos e os es-Jugoslavos. Para a próxima, já combinámos de levar uma grande bandeira portuguesa para colocar no vidro traseiro. Como portugueses somos sempre bem vindos em todos os cantos do Mundo. Por motivos profissionais, todos os anos tenho que ir a Milão em Maio e na primeira vez aconteceu-me exactamente a mesma coisa. A partir daí passei sempre a atestar à saída de Milão. Apesar de ainda serem cerca de 40 kilómetros é o suficiente para chegar ao parque do Rent-a-Car com o ponteiro no máximo. Não voltei a ter problemas. Normalmente também uso o booking.com (e apenas esse site), mas em geral apenas para a primeira noite quando sei exactamente onde vou ficar. Numa viagem de 10 dias como foi a nossa torna-se bastante difícil prever com exactidão onde vamos ficar cada noite, e é muito frustrante ter que perder determinados sítios que se revelam grandes surpresas, ou ter que andar a pastar e a fazer horas em determinado local, condicionados pelo calendário da dormida. Temo-nos dado muito bem com esta estratégia, apesar de por vezes não haver grande alternativa a dormir numa "estrebaria" ou então só conseguir arranjar hotel às 6 da manhã como nos aconteceu nos Montes Apalaches no Canadá. Encaro isso como um salzinho extra que em alguns casos são as recordações mais rocambolescas que trazemos das viagens. Sim, já tinha noutro post chamado a atenção para a Vigneta na Eslovénia e a eco-taxa de Montenegro. Não há como as evitar. Mas creio que foram as únicas "portagens" que pagámos. Verdade seja dita, tentámos sempre evitar auto-estradas e optar por percursos mais panorâmicos. É natural que tivéssemos pago um troço ou outro, mas não chegou sequer a ser assunto. Rijeka e Zadar (excepção da marina e da zona ribeirinha) são muito fraquinhas e só as atravessámos porque tinham umas caches a piscar no radar, mas foi mesmo de fugida. Das coisas que tenho mais saudades é da comida. Ainda no sábado passado fizémos uma grande jantarada de Cevapcici e Kajmak em casa do João e da Maja (Team Hulkman) que trouxeram da recente viagem a Sarajevo no final do mês passado. O Cevapcici do Mrkva no centro de Sarajevo é especial, nem que seja pela carga histórica que encerra. Foi graças a ele que a Stari Grad (cidade velha/centro histórico) de Sarajevo foi poupada aos bomardeamentos dos snipers sérvios, pois o maior desejo de Radovan Karadzic era ír lá comer um belo Cevapcici depois de ocupar a cidade. Nunca chegou a ter esse prazer, ao contrário de nós, que realizámos lá um Evento no ano passado
  14. I agree - I have the Oregon RAM mount on my motorcycle but the Garmin one is well made and perfectly adequate for a mountain bike or car dash. What mount are you using and where did you get it? I'm also interested in what bike you've got and how it attaches as I want to mount my Oregon onto my cbr. I have an F800GS BMW and use the RAM mount which I bought from GPSCity.ca Click the image above to go to the site. Check out their selection of bike mounts - you could find something very inconspicuous for your bike. This is what it looks like on the F800: I use this Garmin cable to power the gps from my Battery Tender connector. But this is more like your CBR - my wife's Oregon is mounted on her TT600 Triumph:
  15. Well well, what can I say - what a rush! The best part of this event is that the fun continues, I can sit back and wait for the logs, ignore the complaints, have a devious grin, look at the caches received and start scheming as to where they'll go. And start planning maintenance runs... My garage is sorted the way I wanted 3 years ago, and because Bruce did such a good job with drilling holes and hanging stuff in the garage my wife roped him into mounting mirrors and stuff in our bath room and things outside - things she asked me to do a year ago already! Thanks for everyone who supported the day - the quick storm at the end of the day made it look like a flash mob gathering wrapping up, but fortunately it didn't feel like unfinished business. Someone even caught a fish! What blew my mind was when I went to clean up after the rain - seeing that people cleared out in a rush trying to flee the rain, you couldn't expect people to clean up properly? And what do I find, after looking carefully? 60-odd people, a braai with food and containers from home, lots of stuff that is used up and can be discarded... and I find ONE small plastic pull-ring!! Well done guys, you make me so proud to be a cacher!!!!! Thanks to the Damhuisclan for the braai and gazebos (also Cabey and others I think) and GreenJaM for the awesome help on the morning and before, my awesome wife and kids and Mom+Mom-in-law (muffins, coffee/tea, marking, registering, etc., etc., etc.) A great thanks to everyone donating prizes, I hope the recipients enjoy them! BMW Bavarian Motorcycles, Tracks4Africa, Irene Running Club, Team Da Garma of previous years, Wormgeocache (Jacques), GreenJaM (Marinus), GEO936 (Rolf & Silvia), Groundspeak (Andy) - and I've lost track (i.e. who gave the Mugg&Bean voucher?)... so thanks to everyone I've forgotten to mention! And lastly, the biggest thanks go to my partner in crime, BruceTP, the strangest friend I have (no wait there are a few others too! ) He gave time, money, effort, put up with my grumpiness and unstructured ideas and brain, and generally just poured himself into the event. Tx partner, onwards to Microfest 2020!!! ...fading out with the theme from Jaws...
  16. Just received word that I must go and pick up some more prizes from BMW Bavarian Motorcycles, Pretoria. If it's too nice, I'll just keep it...
  17. From what I was able to discern from the Naughty Swag discussion, religious stuff is not prohibited swag because it isn't: Illegal Physically dangerous Obscene as defined by local laws It may be annoying to some, however. I personally find McToys, little erasers & pine cones equally as annoying, like really, really, really. ANGST ANGST ANGST! I also find the lack of keys to a late model BMW in a cache really, really, really irritating! Where's that "General Angst" thread anyway? I know I saw one once.
  18. Team DNA

    Rino 120

    Just won a pair of 120s from BMW motorrad (their magazine for BMW motorcycle enthusiasts). My girlfriend and I are looking forward to trying out our new toys.
  19. I would personally like to thank Tracks4Africa (Pty) Ltd for the generous sponsorship of the five copies of Tracks4Africa Version 9.10 which arrived today. I am sure the recipients at the event will greatly appreciate the prize. I would also like to acknowledge the other corporate sponsors as well: the Irene Runnning Club as well as the BMW Motorcycle Club. We are going to have a great event. Please support it, sign up and come along to a funfilled day for everyone. I look forward to seeing more than the current 7 teams who have indicated their attendance.
  20. Got some more goodies today from Irene Running Club... nice! And a couple of teams from Pretoria BMW Motorcycle Club... watch out!
  21. Isto está realmente complicado com interpretações históricas no mínimo interessantes... A Europcar remete para "paises sobre consulta" e já me esclarecerem que só cobre a Croácia e a Eslovénia. Para mim ficou claro, é o mesmo da Avis, Hert, Budget, etc. OK a Eslovénia já faz parte da EEUU e a Croácia está pronta para entrar. Os outros países ainda são muito esquisitos. Alugam localmente, mas não permitem a deslocação de veículos do 'Ocidente'. Agora a Sixt é surreal Nas condições gerais têm "Cross Border Rentals to Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and ex-Yugoslavia are only allowed with car groups ECMR, EDMR, CDMR, CWMR and IVMR." Para mim parecia-me claro como a água. Ok só podem ir carrinhos pequenos e há ali uma redundância entre Croácia e Slovenia e ex-Yugoslávia, que ou se reportava a Reino da Jugoslávia acabado em 1941 e que comportava o Reino dos Sérvios, Croatas e Eslovenos (muito pouco provável ) ou á República Socialista Federativa da Jugoslávia que acabou em 1992 que me parece ser a que faz lógica referir como ex-Jugoslávia e que tinha as républicas da Sérvia, Montenegro, Eslovénia, Croácia, Macedónia e Bósnia e Herzegovina ou á ultima versão República Federal da Jugoslávia composta pela Sérvia e Montenegro e que acabou em 2003 em que o nome Jugoslávia foi abolido. Isto para já não complicar com a independência do Kosovo de 2008 e com a autonomia da Vojvodina... Assim não vejo como raio conseguem ter uma interpretação de ex-Yuguslávia como a que me foi esclarecida por mail "Ex-Yugoslavia is Serbia, Slovenia, Macedonia and Croatia." Se estou um pouco receoso de ir á aventura pela Europcar e esperar para que não aconteça nada, não me parece que a Sixt consiga defender esta interpretação de ex-Yuguslávia em nenhum lado. Existe sempre a opção mais chata de alugar um carro na Croácia em que aí sim os países já são expressamente referidos (embora não possa alugar carros alemães ) "Cross Border Rentals are allowed to the following countries: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegowina, Czech Republic, Denamrk, Finland, France, Germany, Great-Britain, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Serbia, Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vatican City. BMW, Mercedes-Benz, VW and Audi vehicles may not be taken into: Bosnia & Herzegowina, Hungary and Serbia & Montenegro." E aqui sim a expressão Serbia & Montenegro já me parece estar referida á última versão da Jugoslávia... Não está fácil... P.S O Torgut que está mais perto dos Balcãs e que também não pode alugar carros grandes na Itália para levar para a Républica Checa, talvez consiga percebe qual a lógica da SIXT
  22. Jip! Never mind the Drix, just a name evolving from Hendrik (birth certificate, but you'll ruin a friendship if you call me that! ) which was replaced by Drikus to distinguish between all the Hendriks in the family years ago, which became Drix by friends after school. And yes, my current F800GS is the official Dakar F650GS replacement, but they didn't call it the Dakar or the Adventure as some expected... to me, the Dakar (bike) will always be special as it started my second life as a biker (or more specific an adventure biker, as these bikes are classed) and my geocaching path started soon after, the perfect marriage! Trackz introduced me to geocaching, but I didn't quite get it - GreenJaM made me get it, so I'm grateful to both! A real highlight is still doing our 500th find together (with GreenJaM) within 12 months from registration (for both of us) - took some juggling near the end to make it co-incide. So, although I don't ride a Dakar anymore, it will be my great memory forever, so dakardrix it will stay... Over to you... maybe you can explain your own Bavarian/BMW link..? Oh yes, forgot about Trackz...sure I read about that in one of your logs. Oops, I got the model name all incorrect...it is late, I haven't had much sleep lately !! So does this mean it is our turn to go? Can't believe it 'cause I haven't been able to be on line much lately!
  23. I know you ride a BMW so I presume it is a "Dakar" with the "drix" coming from Asterix perhaps? Did Obelix get you into caching? Funny!
