General Bike Related Banter / Re: Accident on N1 near Allendale
« on: September 05, 2014, 10:12:59 am »
I rode past the accident scene this morning, at around 7:45.

Not very nice to see. The rider was still lying right next to the smouldering bike, covered by a space blanket.

i find this 'giving us a bad name' thing confusing.
do you feel that the shooter-motorist has given all car drivers a bad name?   do you treat or view all car drivers differently?

I suppose it depends on your point of view.

Car drivers generally think that bikers are irresponsible.

Bikers, on the other hand, know that not all car drivers are out to get them.

However, when I commute on my bike I think that all car drivers are idiots. Best way to stay alive.......  ;D  ;D  ;D

I a sense I am glad he said what he said - now we know what some people think.

Now we know to be vigilant. As bikers we are very vulnerable and we need to remember that some cagers feel like opening doors.
We also have to think about why they feel like doing this.

Fair enough. I commute daily and there will always be one or two bikers that give the rest of us a bad name.

But for a motoring journalist to post something as stupid as this on a public platform?! He is getting what he deserves.

This guy is now getting kak from all directions. And a lot of it is coming from fellow motoring journalists.


Karma is indeed a beaatch.

This guy is not sorry. He is just sorry he got caught.

If you look at his Twitter feed @thegandranaidoo some of his initial responses were:

@lara_robertson LOL. Please make my day and charge me for intent. READ the FULL conversation before commenting!

@lara_robertson LOL. What response do you expect from me? I am sorry 'baas', it won't happen again?

@DenisDroppa LOL, my response was a reference to bikers during peak hour traffic in the morning and afternoon. You safe on a brekkie run...

Only later did he post the following half-assed apology:

Dear bikers in SA, I have retracted my statement and I humbly apologise for my insensitive comments.

Little prick.

Ek gaan sommer in-chip en se jy kan maar gerus aan jou houding ook werk.  Om mense te oordeel aan hulle voorkoms (vb "tang" en "onderbroek") is tipies ou-skool.  Ek se nie jy't nie n kak ervaring gehad maar om mense te begin oordeel aan hul uiterlike is vlgns my pretty faktap.  Het jy baie geld en dink jy jy is n laanie?

En sbtw, daai tang wat ek dink jy na verwys (ja, die bra met die tatts), is een befokte mechanic en mens - klim van jou high horse en gaan praat met hom asof hy jou equal is :mwink:


Die manier wat die storie vertel word is neerhalend (en ook nie snaaks nie, soos sommige mense beweer).

En, ek was ironies genoeg daai selfde Dinsdag middag by Bavarian om my bike na 'n 80,000 km diens te gaan haal. En soos gewoonlik was alles in orde, met geen probleme nie. Daai is een van die eerlikste dealerships waarmee jy ooit te doen gaan kry, selfs al maak hulle nou en dan foute (met ander dudes se bikes, nog nooit met een van myne nie).

Sorry to hear that the dream has been placed on hold.

Well, for a while anyway.......  :thumleft:

For the record, when I made the donation I never expected to get it back if you didn't get an entry. We all knew that everything still depended on it and that it wasn't gauranteed at all. And I am sure that you had to spend the money to get as far as you did.

So I don't want it back, and I don't want you to send it on to someone else.

(And BlueBull2007 will get the same support for his endeavour, I'm sure of that....  ;) )
