Title: I ate Dust!!!
Post by: Trailrider on August 16, 2007, 06:05:04 pm
Here's an idea for a thread that can go a long way. Lets see the pics and vids of when you took a dirt nap. Not pics off the web, actual Wild Dogs on the pictures.

I know there's a lot of good ones of The_Wes & The_Bike (both the Vespa and the Dak) and a lot of others, as well as that timeless video of Hermanator's V-Strom  ;) ;D

I'll start:

My fall at Attakwas (to Uiltjies delight!) Bleddie pyp.

And my Video taken by Sir Gravellot  :confused5:

Too many to mention, only a few captured on film.

On the little gnarly rocky path leading down the valley by Breedts Nek.

Does mud count?

Oh yes. If my "pipe" counted, mud counts. If you went down, we want to see!

Luckily theres not always cameras around, dump the bike like a moffie in this river bed.

Excellent thread. Dual sport people must eat dirt now and then maybe we can keep this one going,Will move it to pictures

As Michnus said. Luckily the camra is not always there. I was not so lucky this time round.

Funacide took the pics. Had a good laugh afterwards when he led me through the side gate to the back of his garden for beers. Not through the house. :eek: :tongue: :redface: :lol:

I'm from a well-known family of werfcrashers - people known to fall down at points of arrival or departure. This was taken by LS as we arrived at the camping site on Bo-Piketberg earlier this year. Bloody Scorpions (tyres), bloody short legs, rather blunted sense of balance (congenital, not allways acquired). Bloody hell.

Here's brother Phil, or Punksatony Phil.

Having divested himself of his Aprillia Mille when he took a contract in the Congo, he's just bought himsef a little ped to mess about on in the Congo. New to dirt, something subtle was needed - A HONDA CRF450! The pics below show his second outing as he gets to grips with the wodow-maker.  :D

The first fall... Near waterval boven, had the bike for a month, had the learners for a month, someone went and put mud in the road  >:D

Noble Steed, you must, (ike in the ad on TV), carry a bucket of sand in your left hand while riding, as I see that GS has a tendency to fall to the RIGHT! ;D
Title: Re: I ate Dust!!!
Post by: Boertjie on August 18, 2007, 05:01:47 pm
Noble Steed, just check whether your right leg is still there. This falling to the right reminds me of the Japanese guy...  >:D
Title: Re: I ate Dust!!!
Post by: noble steed on August 18, 2007, 05:55:03 pm
Last time I checked, all fine!  ;D

I have a habit of dropping Donkey on the right, Tulip normally drops him on the left. So at least all the scratches are well distributed.   ^-^  ^-^

Tulip just has the advantage of been a lady, so everyone helps pick up the bike BEFORE taking photos.

About '91 or '92. I tried to jump off the dam wall and power through the dried up dam. Turns out that the part I landed in wasn't that dry and the bike stopped instantly. My nuts hooked the top of the fairing while going over the top. The guy with me, like a true DS rider, first went home to fetch the camera.

After we did the other mountain, upon our return route, my son (Ulitjie's son)said that we should wait for him as he wants to take some pics.  We waited, and Mark set off first!  From about 600m away, we could see what has just happened! ::) ::)

With a cloud of dust, and legs and arms and helmet swapping positions amonst the fynbos, Mark had obviously had an off!

Ulitjie's son took the piccies, in true WD fashion!

In the spirit of the Hardy Man's stunt.

This was me in Winterton during the Harescramble.
This rocky hill was easy as I generally like the rocks. Some guy stopped in front of me, ruined my momentum and I ended up hitting a rock and stopping dead.

Tried to put my foot down, but it was going down!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a200/shark_za/Winterton/IMG_4508_small.jpg)

I jumped...
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a200/shark_za/Winterton/IMG_4509_small.jpg)

So who saw me do that stupid dismount?
Oh only Mr K28 and the photographer of course!

Me near Ponto, the sand was damp and easy to ride and I was feeling confident but it was the usual story of pride before the fall. I clipped a branch sticking out of the bush and before I could say WTF?!?! I was flying across the middle mannetjie. I tried to save it but failed and ended up doing some bush diving.

Yep - Done that. Whatever your initial distance, it becomes less and less as you bliksem over and pick up the GS. Over and Over. Each time doing less distance before you eat  sand again.
