Good Morning All
Name is Gerard, from Port Elizabeth, ZA. Been adventuring all my life and always dreamed of owning a camper one day. It is now one day. Just bought a '89 Syncro and fetching it tomorrow. Some of you may know the bus, from Ryno in Montagu. Please don't tell me anything yet that I don't want to know.

The idea was to buy a Kombi and later convert it. Not sure how I ended up with a Syncro, but I think my friend Ian Fairley had a lot to do with it. Greatful to him for all the guidance. For now its a family bus, to be converted as time passes.

Primarily I'm a biker, 1150GSA, Africa Twin and BMW R1100s. My whole family are bikers and campers.

Very excited !

RE: Good Morning All
Hi my bus is also in Montague they busy respraying it...
I sold my 1200 GSA to buy a camper... Syncro
2 people cant sleep on a bike
now we going to sleep inside Cool
I still miss my bike Big Grin

I think he used his bus as a daily drive in MontagueCool

Syncro like a bike there is always something to do or to upgrade = R????
but cheaper than maintaining 2 bikes...
Smile
Enjoy the Syncro

welcome and enjoy

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Thanks all.

Hey Mark, thought it was you, from Barrydale ? You were Mark660, then you had a X Challenge ? We met once at Veltie's place at a Thumper Bash.

Regrettably that weekend is booked already with a bike trip. The Syncro came a bit suddenly and unplanned. We'll see what the future holds.

Let me know. But send the message on WD as I will be more active there. I've reduced my bike collection to make space for the bus. Have grandchild and daughter won't let me take her on the bike so the bus is for those family camping trips.
