Title: Wilddog in bike accident......anyone know him?
Post by: Just Blip It! on April 08, 2016, 08:01:46 pm
Just saw this on FB, not much info. I see the Wilddog sticker on the topbox. Anyone know the rider?
He looks a bit eina! Minimal ATGATT = very eina!
Apparently happened near Wellington in the Cape.
Strongs to the rider and a quick recovery!

eish, always looks "close to home" when I see a big adventure bike with bits beside it  :o  and that's how I also ride ATGAT wise, often without a jacket as well  :(

hope the rider is OK, but looks like it - wonder what happened?

Lyk of die Wit Ford in die foto wou regs draai, op die moment toe die bike verby kom.

Kan sien in die een foto die koplig vd kar hang ook uit.

Maar lyk meer of hy kar getref het in die verby gaan van agterkant af. Lyk nie soos n head on nie.

Eeeeeish. Ek weet presies hoe dit voel om basies jou knee cap op die teer te los as jy net met 'n jean pant ry.  Maar tog doen baie van ons dit ten spyte van die risiko :o

Lyk asof sy skoen op sy regter voet afgekom het in die ongeluk as ek so na sy sokkie kyk. Boots is maar net ook veiliger.

Sterkte en hoop jy word gou gesond.

Mwat is daai rooi ding by die handlebars

Lyk vir my soos 'n cover oor die cross brace van die handlebar - van die GSA's se handlebar het 'n brace gehad.

Die bike het 'n harde shot weg, die handlebars is erg gebreek as ek so kyk, en kyk ook hoe naby sit die voorwiel aan die engine.

Hoop die eienaar het nie te erg seergekry nie.

Geel Kat ek dink jy is 100% reg oor die handlebar crossbar, maar ek dink die voorvurke makeer niks. Daai voorwiel is maar naby aan die engine.
Het nou myne gaan kyk.
Ek het n gedagte die fiets is op die regterpod geslaan. Ek kan verkeerd wees omdat ek nie helemal kan sien nie, maar daar is net te veel olie.

Hoop die ruiter is gou reg. :thumleft:

Ek dink daai pot het die ou se been gered, as dit n ander bike was was die ou se been afgesit. Sterkte ou, n seer knie kan SEER wees. En daai skoonmaak ook wat so snaaks voel en onwillekeurige bewegings veroorsaak wanneer hulle aan die wiring raak tydens die skrop.

Het n klient wat sy 1200 op 213 000 km ruk terug in Namakwalnd afgeskryf het wat deur n donga is en toe paduit is en n helse rots met die linkerpod geslaan het voor hy grond toe is. Hy sÍ sy linkervoet en been sou lykshuis toe gegaan het sou hy iets anders gery het.
Ou is erg moerig oor sy skaars gebruikte bike afgeskryf is. Linkerpod is glo afgeruk. :lol8:

Guys, before I recommend 2, no make that 3 spoons[dessert] of cement without water, could I remind you of all the threads and even complaints on here about riders, especially the GS1200 ones, lane-splitting too fast.
Let me also remind you that the top selling bikes are fast, heavy machines. People do not buy them to stick to the speed limit.

Now tell me wrong thread. etc, but I also feel for the rider because I have been there a good many times in my life.

Are we going to just carry on riding bigger and heavier bikes, and then cry like this when it goes pear-shaped?

If I look at the pics and positions of the bike and car that was hit I would say someone rode out in front of this guy expecting him to turn left at the intersection but he was going straight.

Bike swerved right to miss car in intersection that rode out in front of him and bike ended up hitting white car in pic, spinning round to where she lies now??

What you guy thinks??

Hi there

It was Heavy Metal that was in the accident. He overtook a car that had had moved into the left of the lane. The driver then deliberately swerved right again, pushing him into oncoming traffic. He then hit an oncoming car. This is what all the witnesses say happened.
All Heavy Metal knew was that he was on the bike at one moment and rolling around on tar, for what felt like forever, the next.

The car that pushed him into the right lane slowed down but then sped off again.

Heavy Metal in is in hospital...and very eina. Lots of small breaks and fractures but nothing too serious.

His knee clearly has a huge hole in it, which was operated on this morning, but it wasn't broken.

His wrist however is broken, along with his pinkie finger and small toe.

Lucky for him the surgeon cleaned out all his wounds while he was under general anaesthetic today. Shame he is in a lot of bloody pain but at least they are keeping him dosed up.

What's amazing is all the support that was received from people that stopped at the scene. It's so refreshing to experience some of the good that's in the world!

I will pass on everyone's well wishes!

Thanks guys.

Ja unfortunately that happens far too often but we should remember that there could have been something in the emergency lane that forced the car back into the main lane and Heavy Metal could've been in the blind spot.

Moonchicken do you where this was exactly .... looks like Stellenbosch but I can't place the exact location?

It happened close to the Wild Clover on the R304.

I'd like to believe it was simple as something in the emergency lane - not sure if the person actually even was in te emergency lane - will need to find out, but even if that was the case what sort of person would then just speed away after what he's done? Doesn't sound innocent to me...

Ten spyte van 2sd se "sensitive comment" - wens ek jou spoedige herstel toe en dat jy gou weer op die 1200 sal wees  :thumleft: :thumleft:

Die "wit golf" aanmerking is natuurlik glad nie n "sensitive comment" nie....... :imaposer: steeds baie snaaks.

Good to hear thats he is going to be alright! Did they get the details if the idiot who was responsible for this?

Hi Famous Farmer, no they didn't get a plate but hopefully one of the many cameras on that road did...

I have never seen a camera on that road, except for the one that took the photos on this thread.

There were some emergency patrol people at the accident scene who said that road was full of video cameras (no speed cameras) apparently to patrol trucks...they said they would look and see if they could find the person on tape. (Another fellow WD was at the scene later to pick up the bike and he spoke to them)

It was Heavy Metal that was in the accident. He overtook a car that had had moved into the left of the lane.


Ja unfortunately that happens far too often but we should remember that there could have been something in the emergency lane that forced the car back into the main lane and Heavy Metal could've been in the blind spot.

Sounds like a reasonable explanation.
However, leaving the scene of an accident you were involved in is not only suspicious and immoral, it's also illegal.

I was in the cage once Between Bloemfontein and Colesberg, I searched for something in the cubby hole. I slightly went into the yellow lane. Cager behind me thought I was making a gap for him and started overtaking me. We both got a fright when I went back into my lane without realizing he was trying to overtake me.

Hi there

It was Heavy Metal that was in the accident. He overtook a car that had had moved into the left of the lane. The driver then deliberately swerved right again, pushing him into oncoming traffic. He then hit an oncoming car. This is what all the witnesses say happened.
All Heavy Metal knew was that he was on the bike at one moment and rolling around on tar, for what felt like forever, the next.

The car that pushed him into the right lane slowed down but then sped off again.

Heavy Metal in is in hospital...and very eina. Lots of small breaks and fractures but nothing too serious.

His knee clearly has a huge hole in it, which was operated on this morning, but it wasn't broken.

His wrist however is broken, along with his pinkie finger and small toe.

Lucky for him the surgeon cleaned out all his wounds while he was under general anaesthetic today. Shame he is in a lot of bloody pain but at least they are keeping him dosed up.

What's amazing is all the support that was received from people that stopped at the scene. It's so refreshing to experience some of the good that's in the world!

I will pass on everyone's well wishes!

Thanks guys.


You are in our prayers Heavy Metal, Hope you have a full recovery and get wheels again and be riding soon!
Hope they get that person!!! :angryfire: :director:

Guys, before I recommend 2, no make that 3 spoons[dessert] of cement without water, could I remind you of all the threads and even complaints on here about riders, especially the GS1200 ones, lane-splitting too fast.
Let me also remind you that the top selling bikes are fast, heavy machines. People do not buy them to stick to the speed limit.

Now tell me wrong thread. etc, but I also feel for the rider because I have been there a good many times in my life.

Are we going to just carry on riding bigger and heavier bikes, and then cry like this when it goes pear-shaped?

Nie kak styl nie, sien eerder n waarskuwing in my posts en ry binne jul perke. Die groot fiets mane jaag.



I'm not sure how you know that this accident would not have happened if the guy was on a smaller bike, but whatever......
With a smaller bike the car would have hit him from behind  go to slow ,ja Im only 62 now and will buy a smaller slower bike when I get old

Hi Silvrav

HeavyMetal is still in hospital. He is very sore and they are giving him lots of Pethidine.

Other than that he is ok. The physio got him to walk a couple a couple of steps and she seems happy with the progress.

He is going to be fine, but I reckon he will be in pain for a couple of weeks still.

I do not comment on these types of threads often.

Heavy Metal - good luck . Hope you heal up quickly and without issues. Hope the insurance sorts out your bike without issues.

I have often sat behind a cager who goes of on left making me think that they are giving me space to pass only to have them then come back into the lane when they look up from their cellphones.

I am very weary of passing anybody on single lane traffic with vehicle approaching from ahead.

What I am saying is that maybe the person in the cage was not even aware of Heavy Metal and went of on the left because he/she was texting , changing radio station , dropped a cigarette between his/her legs or any other stupid scenario and then came back into their lane pushing him into oncoming traffic.

Be careful guys. You need to ride to keep yourself alive. No one else will do it for you.

I really don't know what happened, all i remember is that was riding the one moment, and the next i was going down and thinking WTF is happening, and then waiting for a car to hit me as i knew i was going into oncoming traffic. Fortunately that didn't happen, although the bike hit a car. I am very very lucky!!!

Concerning the bikes.....my mind have been playing tricks on me  :biggrin: , keeps cycling through 990, 1190, 1200GSA...and so on. Will see what the insurance pays and where the wheel stops.  :thumleft:
