Wilddog in bike accident......anyone know him?
« 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.

Just had a flashback of my knee being scrubbed out in the ER.  :-[

Hope that's the worst of it for the poor guy.

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.
