Title: RangeRover down.
Post by: Beemer Mike on September 16, 2013, 11:48:59 am
Adriaan Aucamp aka RangeRover fell yesterday during his riding course at Amersfoort and has broken his leg. He is in hospital at the moment waiting for the swelling to subside so that they can operate and insert a few nuts, bolts pins etc. Not sure which hospital.

Hope all goes well.

Eina ... Should consider changing his forum name to Toyota - less likely in need of recovery :peepwall:

Latest is that his leg is broken in three places.  They are waiting for the swelling to subside before operating. He is presently in pain and not a happy camper, in Sunninghill hospital.

HI Guys!

Mike thanks for the post and for all the well wishes!

The operation went well and I am almost back to being myself. I am just missing the fun rides on my scooter as the doc recons I can only ride it in about 5 weeks time (have been 3 week now).

The bike has almost no damage besides a bent gear lever. I was really surprised about this!

The fall happened on the last day of training and we were busy with the oval tracks. I was a bit windgat over taking Craig on his 650 and realized i was way to fast and all I can remember is the bike on my leg! I am very grateful that I have spend money on proper boots that saved my ankle!

I must also thank Oom Jan Staal for one of the best weekends and Johan for the lift back to JHB! I know I was not the best passenger!

I am not the happiest person. Visited the doctor Friday and I am still not allowed to get on the bike! How long does it take?

The main fracture has started to grow but still a long way to be at a point that I can ride. The doc said that he thinks in about 3 months I will be able yo go bos!

The upside is that it happened here, and not way in the bundu.

RR, it took me almost 2yrs to be strong enough to ride after shattering my Femus...take ur time, do your physio and keep doing what ever the doc says. There's a reason he's the doc and u r the patient...

Best of luck

Thanks guys! It's just bad seeing the bike in the garage and paying the monthly installment without being able to use it!

But will listen to the doc!

Eina!

Mine currently looks much better. But thanks. Will wait patiently for it to heal. Just strange that some people get back after 3 months and other don't.
