ought to you by Linex Yamaha – Lynwood RD PTA East Grand Opening We have brought you a bit of news about them in the last 2 issues and on a very cold winters evening a week or two back they had their official grand opening. This was a very big deal with dignitaries from Yamaha Japan attending the event and everybody and anybody who is somebody was there. The atmosphere was set to be something really special, huge big fire pits were ablaze to stave off the winter chill, live music in the form of Justin Serrao and his band kept things festive. We were treated to some of the best hospitality while being introduced to the very friendly and enthusiastic team. After a few formalities it was time to have a proper walk around and gawp at the size and spectacle that is Linex Yamaha Lynwood. Their marine section is exceptional and headed up by Nadine de Villiers who has several world titles and Guinness record titles to her name. Koos Meno is on the parts counter with almost 40 years’ experience in Yamaha parts, Paul Kersten is on motorcycle sales. Geraldine Olivier is the super helpful and knowledgeable Parts & Accessories manager. Then you have Ettienne Scholz adeptly swinging spanners on the motorcycle benches with the duo of Max van der Westhuizen and Dylan Lange on the marine benches. Lachay Saker and Alphina Khoele keep all the admin and accounts making sense and all headed up by Gerhard Moolman the DP. Their philosophy is that it must be easy to business with them. Get yourself along to the corner of Lynwood road and Simon Vermooten rd in The Willows, Pretoria East, directly under the gigantic billboard to experience Linex Pretoria personally.
