Windgat or ATGATT?

Windgat (vint-ghut): South African slang, meaning show-off. Taken from the Afrikaans, it literally means “wind hole”

ATGATT (utt-ghut, as pronounced with a South African accent): A motorcycling acronym meaning ‘All the gear, all the time’

Which one are you?

Windgat!

ATGATT: All the gear, all the time.

And just in case you need any more convincing, read this.
