Hi Hans,  I’m nearly 100% recoverd (my body and the Vmax), still nurshing the pulled muscle in my shoulder.

I managed to straighten most of the bend parts at my brothers place in Queensburg and took a lonely ride back to Germiston on the Monday.

It was great meeting all the Vmax brothers, will see you at the next Odyssey (I will try not to crash land into KZN the next time),will send photos soon.

Vmaximus greetings

Chris the Flying Dutchmen
