Title: Show us your "OFF"
Post by: Aquatic on November 24, 2008, 03:22:25 pm
The only criteria - The rider must have walked away or had a good laugh. Nothing grusome!

This is the sequence of my attempt at digging a 'sloot' with my helmet peak at this year's GSC skills challenge.

Here we go SillyStunt - have a good laugh AGAIN!

Riding in the dunes near Cape Town. I tried to show off for the camera and ended up losing the rear end.
1st left-hand slide (full counter lock on the handlebars), then right with the leg out and finally down!

Careful is you make a statement such as "The first one to fall buys a round!" - You might just be that person

nice fotos, hoeveel vlikkers het jy verloor?  :mwink:

Nie 'n enkele een nie! Ek het al so baie geval ek tel nie eers meer nie, maar het nog al my oorspronklikke flikkers.
Meskien is ek net gelukkig. Die crash bars is egter 'n must have.

'n KLR is taaier as wat mense dink. Het nou die dag sywaards vas gegly in 'n kar wat voor my ingedraai het. Weg geskiet, 5m verder teen die sypaadjie vas gegly, geval en 2m ver op teer geskuur maar danksy die crash bars het niks skade gekry. Ek het wel bietjie gebloei en sit nogsteeds en krap aan die rowe.  :-[

This "off" happened in the urban jungle and I'm not sure if it meets the criteria but since I learnt  such a good lesson I'd like to share it.

The guys I ride with kept on telling me "all the gear all the time" but I was hardegat and now I see.

Riding along Beach Rd in Green Point on a Sunday afternoon a car unexpectedly turned in front of me.
I found out afterwards that the driver had been drinking.

#1 This is more or less where I hit the back of the car. I was already in a right-hand sideways skid at this stage. The rear wheel hit the car so hard the axel shifted on the swing arm.

#2 This is where the rear wheel hit the pavement. After hitting the car I careered off into a left-hand skid.

#3 This is where I finally came down and scraped along the pavement comming to a standstill just behind/next to a parked car.

It happened so quick. I wish I could say I drew upon my skill but to say the truth the bike skidded totally out of control.
I got away lightly.

The sand monster attacked me on our way to Gannagapas in the Tankwa Karoo. We took a detour through a private game farm and encounter this piece of dry riverbed.

I was not the only one though, minutes after me the photographer also had a soft landing.

Dont know if this counts coz I dont have the pic of the bike.

Came off my 950 SE where the west coast road joins the N1 at Paarden Eiland towards town.
The knobbly just doesent do tar at all...
I never ride without me gear. Had to help out a friend and just "quickly" jumped on the bike with flip-flops , t-shirt and shorts.

No real damage to the bike. Broken mirror , bent brake paddle , scratches on the plastics. Oh and scratched my Shoei Hornet helmet pretty bad.
I kakked off though for a couple of weeks after.

ALL THE GEAR ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brilliant!

So I take the wife to cedarberg on my dads 1200 gs with those crappy standard tyres that are not good for anything more than going down the gravel in your driveway. We get warned about eselbank at Oasis. So loaded with 3 bmw boxes extended and tents sleeping gear and 3 bottels wyn, we hit eselbank!! I still don't know how but we made it through no crashes, but tank slapper of note!! I started doubting myself until I now C others also had moments at the sand pad to hell.

I got kak lucky to understate it!

apparently I got a tank slap and hit the tar at 140 (I still think that's bullshit, but hey) the cock up was the helmet was new to me, never had one with a double D type strap and it wasn't on properly. Hit the ground helmet came off, fractured eye socket with a mean ass concussion and allot of skin gone.

In retro sect it has calmed me down allot in some ways and just overall has made me be less of a stupid twat on the road, as well as the bike related changes there have been way more positive sides to the whole thing than negative.

I stopped biting my nails for the first time in my life and my hey fever is better than it has ever been, to the point where its almost gone..... strange how things work lol  :patch:

All in all im glad it happened the way it did, I needed to catch a wake up call and I got lucky enough to live through it with only a minor scan on my nose and under my eyebrow

Soft and relativly slow so no one hurt. Its a catch 22 go fast and risk getting hurt or go slow and fall anyway.
Sometimes best to paddle through sometimes ego wont let you.

I brought some prime estate just opposite Shell at the Samrand offramp on N1 south.  I drove in the construction lane early morning at about 120km/h when a faarkin speedbike pulled in right in front of me from slow moving traffic.  I went down hard and fast.  Lessons learned:  1.  All the Gear, all the time.  2.  Dont drive faster than slow moving traffic. 3.  Speed biker se ma se p...! You couldv'e stopped you idiot.  Next time use your mirrors or common sense.  Faarkit!

(http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/9113/dsc00118e.jpg)
The bike slid on it's right hand side for about 120m luckily without hitting any traffic.  Freesliding all the way to a standstill.  I followed first on my hands, then whilst sliding I managed to turn on my back and rode it out on my jacket for about 65m.  I waived at the slow moving traffic on my way past them.  (I figured I might need some friends now, so make new ones fast.)




(http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/999/dsc00117ad.jpg)
Typical, the tow in van was the first to arrive.  Only wanted to take my Gs to Bavarian. "Ek ken 'n pel wat daar werk, buddy"  I waited for the ambulance.  They bandaged my hands (both looked like this).  I hopped on the bike and drove it home.  Apparently, I don't have any friends at 6am in the morning. Checked myself into unitas after a double shot at home.  Cracked kneecap, Cracked shoulder scapula, and two bruises on my cheekbones from my helmet slapping the tar.

The damage to the right hand side of the bike.  Topbox scratched.  Propshaft scratched a little.  Right mirror broken off, but I managed to fix it.  I had one of those plastic head protectors on before the fall.  The was nothing left of it except the bolts.

Busy fixing it up at home while healing.  I couldnt get a glove on let alone hold on to the handlebars.  Took me two weeks just to slightly grip it again.

(http://img682.imageshack.us/img682/3874/dsc03740v.jpg)
Fixed up and riding again. :ricky:  This was my first attempt at fixing a head cover.  After these photos were taken, I redid both the cylinder heads and replaced the spark plug covers.  Now they are as good as new.

Came round a bend in kimberley northern cape only to be met by this site:

(http://img260.imageshack.us/img260/3554/08022007446.jpg)

This is how I ended up.

(http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/8674/14122006358.jpg)


Again:  All The Gear All The Time.  All together now....



My first ride with the wilddogs.  A newbie ride organised by blazes.  New to the pack, I want to show off a bit and while standing I wave at the camera.  As I go over the hill where Blazes is taking the photo, right in front of me is tar.  I sqeeze brakes slightly.  The rear tire slips.  I let it go quickly and sqeeze again slowly.  Nope still too fast, still slipping, But the tar road is coming closer ever so flippen fast and I spot a truck coming from my left.  Crossing the tar would not be an option.   Hit on the brakes and go down on my left.  I slide the bike 4m and come to a standstill right next to the tar just as the truck shoots past, missing my mirrors lying in the road by inches.  Blazes comes running towards me asking:  Are you allright? Are you hurt?  But all the time still taking photos. Eissh. 
(http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/9728/dsc01218g.jpg)



So I bite my tongue, pick up the bike (normally not a problem) but there's a pinch on my left.  And it hurts.  And soon after I have trouble breathing.  But this is my first ride with the dogs and no way I'm turning around now.  I grit my teeth, up goes the bike, and I follow the rest of the pack and finish the ride.  After lunch, I chat my two riding buddies Janneman and Deamon to call it a day.  Luckily they agree and we hit the highway home.  Man, Now I'm really not breathing well.  Get home, my wife takes a look (she a gp)  "Ja jy wil mos, boer. Nou is jou ribbes moer toe."  Two cracked ribs and another two bruised badly.

Damage to the left head after my off on my first ride with the wilddog pack.  I still feel like a box.



(http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/128/dsc03743w.jpg)
There we go, all fixed up again.  And this time  I got myself some aluminium head protectors.  No more fixing heads for me.  :thumleft:

Double shot of kwv brandy, mike. And yes it was very ouch.  the worst I can remember was driving the bike home with dry bandages without any gause or padding. Taking bandages off at home burnt like hell and it started to bleed again. And I went to work when I was patched up that same day!

Die plek is seker so 100km vanaf Goageb.
Doe totale afstand tussen Goageb en Rosh Pinah is 240 waarvan 40km teer is.

I have been very fortunate never to have had a particular bad “off”. Funny thing is that the worst injuries I got
was riding along relative slowly on Beach Road, Green Point, minding my own business when a drunk guy turned
in front of me with no warning. Sharing the roads with cages are way too dangerous!

Mostly though the ‘ol KLR lies down in a much more recreational manner. This “off” happened at the end of a day
riding 980km of highway to go to the family farm. I decided to spice things up by taking an infamously slippery
approach to the farmhouse. It rained, a lot, and the sheep trotted all over the road surface. I managed to waltz
my way to almost the end when finally I went down. Put a smile on my face!

My biggest off with my previous bike.  The Vara.

After wanting to visit a friend (that was not at  home when I arrived there), at the palce where the 2006 GS Challenge was held, it was raining quite hard whilst waiting at his place.  Enjoyed a loovely view of Visierskerf mountain.  In the meantime that road become v ery wet and very sliipery.  Decied then to tackle the road back home and guess whyo was lurking next to the road.

Did nice sli and slides at slow speed.

Did the one thing looked at the ditch next to the road I did not wanted to go.

An unsuspected soft patch  and  went into  the ditch.  Riding in the dicth I stood up and as I opened up, I suspect my front wheel hit a rock and the next moment I was doing breast stroke in the ditch and my Vara chasing me side ways on its side.

Fisrt pic bike parked in the rain before the off. 
Nect pic after the off ( side ways in the ditch)
And at the end of the gravel ??  road at T junction with tar   going home after the ditch.

A few scratches on the right hand side, a bent back-brake lever and later  aright peg that broke off.  Myself , just a sore right shoulder a bit blue hip  and a thankfull  attitude that that nothing serious was wrong.

You can hear the engine starting to labour. I should have gooied mielies then, but like and idiot I was looking at tracks of the bike that was in front of me.  :deal:
The most embarrassing part is the pick-up.... err roar.  :-[


Dis n KTM hulle val maar so.  :pot:

I don't know if it is the camera angel but it looks like you where looking down a lot? Not good on a road like that especially on a bigg bike.  :ricky:

Is that the Old Post route in the Cederberg?

Kak ryers val maar so, maak nie saak watter fiets nie.

Ja dit is die Old Postman's trail.

Die hoek van die kamera was bietjie af. Ek was bietjie ongelukkig met myself daaroor.

Ek het ook gevind dat die grootste probleem was dat die GPS teen to tankbag gedruk het. Dit het ook nie gehelp dat die skroewe 'n paar maande voor dit uit my been gekom het nie. So ek moes meeste van my gewig op my liker been dra. (Ek het nog baie swak verskonings, vra net.  :mwink:)

Was on my way to the 2009 Buff. Going through the Troudouw Pass near Barrrydale. Went too fast round a hair pin bend & hit the wall. Lucky it wasn't the other side or I would've gone over the edge. I got a nasty gash in my knee & I badly bruised shoulder. The insurance wanted to write the bike off, but she's good as new again now. I had to lay & wait for someone cause there's no reception there & I was alone. Some really nice people helped me up & I fixed my handle bars & cable tied my spark plug spanner onto the gear shift & headed on & enjoyed the weekend at the Buff (with two packets of myprodols!).

Ok, I'll play. I have a ton of them. Two of the more recent ones;

Riding along the Westcoast roads fence, a newly laid fibre cables access hole was not compacted enough. That was pretty scary, I thought the bike was going to trap me in that hole.

Taking on one hill too steep with not enough run-up in Atlantis. I tried it 3 times with the similar results before I gave up;
