Title: You know its a Jules ride when..... (Potch 27 June 2010)
Post by: Jules on June 27, 2010, 06:09:50 pm
The ambulance arrives  :o
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june17.JPG)

But lets start at the beginning.

8 of us met up at Pinehaven this morning at 8ish, Tails were sniffed and fuel put in and we were off,
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june1.JPG)

The first stretch of this ride is about 60km's tar before you get to the good stuff.

Ganjora only did the first section with us and then had to head to DR KLR's place for more Bling! Down to seven.

Usurper ran late and ended up running out of fuel on the way to the meeting spot and met us along the way so we were back to eight again.

All went well apart from the dust until some railroad ballast stones got the better of Nicky and down she went, she was shaken but not stirred but the bike had a broken clutch lever.
I raced back and cable tied a solution and quick as a flash we all got ready to leave when, I discovered a F*&%$ puncture on my rear wheel  >:(
3 tubes later and we were on the way again (1 pinched and 2 buggerd after unpacking them)

(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june7.JPG)

(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june8.JPG)

We made Potch at around 1ish and had a great lunch at Die Akker (as usual) a few of the guys debated taking tar back from lunch to get back in time for the soccer but decided to do the dirt instead as we were still on track as far as timing went.

About 20k's out of Potch we hit a rather large rut that was hiding behind a small hill, Killi Kid was thrown off line by the rut and his boot got twisted between the embankment and the bike.
He rode on for about 500meters and then looked down to see his foot facing back-wards, He got such a shock that he simply slowed down and let the bike fall over,

Usurper who was right behind him hit the same rut and fell over but luckily without any injury,

It was a big shock to turn around and come up on this site

(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june12.jpg)

(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june11.jpg)

We arranged an ambulance and some very kind local farmers offered to store Kili's bike in the shed till it can be collected,

The Ambulance was there within 20 minutes  :thumleft:

Here is the rut that caused the kak
He was in the left lane.
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june13.JPG)

Where his foot got jammed
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june14.JPG)
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june15.jpg)

Where he eventually stopped (20 meters beyond the guys in this pic)
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june16.jpg)

Are the drugs working yet?
(http://home.telkomsa.net/edgepc/rides/potch2010june18.JPG)

Ian I hope you heal up quickly and we see you around Soon! let us know if you need anything.

Thanks to the rest of you for joining and being such great DOGS!

Ouch, that is not a good sight and it brings back bad memories.  >:(

Jules at least this time you did warn the guys that it would be a high speed run, and looking at that rut, well anybody could have trouble there, even at slower speeds.
Kili Kid, all the best man. Take it easy, and give that leg all the time it needs to heal. Hopefully someone will keep us up to date on Kili Kid's condition? 

THE JULES REPUTATION IS INTACT!  :biggrin:

Everything of the best Ian. Spoke to you this morning at Pinehaven.

I had a similar incident many moons ago, riding enduro and a car came from the opposite direction on the track hidden amongst trees, long story short my foot got jammed in the wheel arch, result, broken ankle now 'fixed' with screws.

and looking at that rut, well anybody could have trouble there, even at slower speeds.

That is 100% correct!!! being behind Ian and seeing him gooi a moerse woblly in the ditch (where he actually did not fall, he rode it through) at that moment I knew that this exact hypothesis will be put forward on the forum so I tested it!
I had slowed down, thinking that Ian was in the process of coming off, and when he didnt, I went into the same ditch at a lower speed. My front wheel got thrown off by the ridge in the middle of the ditch after which I promptly dropped the bike on the middle mannetjie.

Man!! You could see Ian was in pain! but he toke it! If they moved me around with my foot pointing in the wrong direction, the ref on the pitch at soccer city would have heard me!

Oh and what a d@*s was I; ran out of fuel on the N14 less than 5 km from the 4way stop....    :BangHead:

Thanks Jules for organising. Eventfull as usual. I'm just lucky I was riding slowly at the back of the group at that spot or it could have been me in the hospital. Note to self - slow down and take it easy out there.

Hey there, it is really bad that Jules gets a bad rap, when he only leads the ride and plans a very good route too, nice terrain, interesting riding.  :-\
 Accidents happen and usually when the rider is riding beyond their skill level or as Killy pointed out, it was after a good lunch and he had gotten complacent, not concentrating.  It was a silly accident, but, could happen to anyone, at no point does he blame Jules for his foot getting caught.  :deal:
I know it is a standing joke with "Jules rides" but, I hope it is a joke and not taken seriously, any noobs joining the forums now will shake in their boots to join a Jules ride, which is unfair, his rides are the best and I'm not just saying that cause I have the pleasure of sleeping with him  :mwink: :peepwall:

Vat so! :deal:

 Ive been on a Jules ride and it was such a neat ride, never once felt that it was too fast or reckless, Damn miffed I missed this one..will try make the next :ricky:

Accidents happen to experienced  and inexperienced riders alike.. if you ride bikes you gonna fall off sooner or later show me someone who hasnt binned it?

Killi kid get well soon and there is no blame to anyone it just sometimes goes pear-shaped very quickly and you find yourself in the veld..

Post by: EtienneXplore on June 28, 2010, 04:40:08 pm
I agree with Li and Pistonslap here. I have ridden with Jules a few times as well and it has always been a great ride!

I think his rides are so nice and people are having such a good time that they start riding out of their capabilities, and then things go wrong. People need to ride their own ride, Jules is very fast, but there is no need to try and stay with him, ride your own ride.

I remember the Parys ride where Leon broke his leg, on the way back from Parys, Jules, myself, Splash and the guy on the 640 (Matthew ??) were klapping it at some crazy speeds, as soon as I started to get uncomfortable I just slowed down a bit, no problems, everyone gets together again eventually.

So Jules, I cannot wait for the next ride!!! - Noobies welcome!!

ps, when Jules advertised this ride, he indicated that it will be fast.

I realize that I have a reputation as a breaker of bikes and bones but the truth is I plan a lot of rides and have loads of dogs that never have an incident,
Its all about the numbers, The more rides you do the bigger the chance for mishaps.

Don't get me wrong I don't take the "ragging" on the forum seriously as I'm sure none of it is done in a nasty way its all just dogs taking the piss and is cool  :biggrin:

And yes I did say it was a fast ride but I didn't mean fast as in high speed, I meant fast as we needed to make good time and couldn't hang about too much, a lot of Noobies often say they don't want to join a ride as they hate holding the pack back, trust me everyone was there once, We don't mind waiting for you, the only time I will specifically say its a fast ride is when we have a lot of mileage to cover in a day and even then all that means is you need to be comfortable on good dirt roads at speeds around 80kph.
I keep a fast pace so that those that want to can let rip but I never let the slower guys feel like they are being rushed.

I'm going to start making Jules Ride T-Shirts Soon!!!

I agree with you Li --

The problem is a Numbers thing --up here in Guateng Jules and myself are mostprobably the only two people who are prepared to give up our time and arrange rides for people--I have taken over a thousand riders out over the jast few years on rides posted onj the Forum as well a srides not posted--

SHIT --Happens. The more people you take out on rides the better chance of someone getting hurt --have had a few cases with groups as well--fortunately nothing serious.
I think we need to look at some rides--the so-called private ones that we hear of --and are not made public on the Forum --i know of many such a ride that has ended in some serious injuries taken place. A friend of mine --very experienced crashed this week-end and --guess what hardly anyone knows about it--it was aprivate ride ---

I have ridden with Jules and at no time have i found any of the rides i have been on --dangerous-- well planned and great fun--allways fun to ride with him and Li--

Because we are in the public eye of the Forum --unfortunately we get branded --Ridden with Ian as well --- a good rider  ---Sunday was just not his day ---

I just think --unfortunately Ian made a bad call when he crashed and did not read the terrain that well --Happens to ALL of us. Some of us get off badly and others are lucky --Ian was not so lucky--but also very fortunate that he is alive.

So let us all put this one to rest-- Jules keep up the good work by putting rides up for people to get together and enjoy themselves --Yes sometimes we are going to have someone get hurt ----

NO ONE IS TO BLAME --These things happen daily--

Agreed, and although I came really close to a big off on a Jules ride I did not lose it, it was just events and high spirits if I dont almost lose it fairly regularly I would be worried... not trying :biggrin:

But more seriously.. Blazes and Jules.s outrides are what makes this forum, few have the time or inclination to organise these rides and not everyone is a Michnus or Metal Jockey, these outrides are a massive part of what makes this forum great...

Jules... will join a ride of yours again soon, if you will wait for the old man....

<snip>  when, I discovered a F*&%$ puncture on my rear wheel  >:(
3 tubes later and we were on the way again (1 pinched and 2 buggerd after unpacking them)

Hey Jules -err- I had the same problem with pinching tjoobs on the Tenere while trying to fix-em  >:( - pinched three in a row with a front puncture on the N2 before running out of patches. 

Is there something strange about the Tenere rim that makes it prone to pinching, or is it possibly the paper-thin tube that comes standard, or is it just my/our incompetance? I have now put a Kenda tuff-tube in the front, and got a slightly thicker spare tjoob for the rear, but I don't want to get stuck like that again.

Sorry only getting back to all you guys now. But I have had to rearrange my life quite a bit since my little altercation with the dreaded rut. To carry on the story where Jules left off...... It was 27 Ks to the Potch Medi clinic and then the job of having to remove my boot!!!!!! The pain by then was getting quite intense and I begged Benny ( the paramedic) to give me some morphine or any sprt of powerful pain killer - no luck - out of stock !!!! In casualty they were great could not get my boot off - tugging and pulling was not pleasant!! Eventually I removed my own boot and went for X rays--- massive dislocation, broken ankle and split shim bone - if it hadnt have been for my Tech 3 boot, I would have lost my foot - thank you Alpine Star !!!!!  Went straight into theatre with Dr Hannes Yonker - what an orthopod !!!!  All micro surgery , screws and other bits to re-attach all the ligaments and tendons - leg was re-aligned ( which at first was not going to be done under anesthetic and I said no way!!!  After 2 hour Op was back at work on Tues morning and a 6 to 8 week recovery period.
Jules thanks to all of you for all your concern and help - Li for your lap, Dale for organising the ambulance, Al for giving me shade and bringing my bike back from Potch - Nikki , Ian, Dave and all you guys and true '''bruthas and sistahs" .
Wild Dogs are all special people and it is a privilege to ride with you. Thanks again.
