Spectacular crash Pebbles, I just saw one huge dust cloud with arms and legs and stuff popping out.
Well, this is adventure riding!

CG, where did this happen? Do you have somebody that can stoetie the bike? If you REALLY need an immediate fix - just to get to town - cableties will work IF you jam a piece of wood, or even a rock, into the area where the shock absorber should be. Sort of a custom hardtail KLR  :lol8:

But if you broke the swingarm......... sorry sister, no dice!

Must have been quite an impact to cause such damage.
If you can start it you can ride it

Tgg, that tailbag is big, but it is only a bedroll, so very lightweight.

Hi Leondude, I am glad you are safe. How is Pebbles, is she ok?
What was it that broke on the bike? did you get that sorted?

Pebbles is ok, just a bit stiff.
The dogbones actually broke!

Miskien was die pilot overweight.

Cave Girl, vertel ons wat weeg jy sodat ons die fout kan saam opsoor en oplos  :lol8:

Ja nee wragtag! : van die PUI thread

So wat gaan hier aan vannaand?

Suip ons of praat ons net kak  :imaposer:
Ek moet gaan slaap.

Die kak wat ek rook laat my naam weggooi nou.

Clearly, you have been PUI or smoking some of Ganjora's good stuff.

1)PEBBLES rode the bike, not CAVEGIRL. Cavegirl probably posted this from her phone.

2)You NEVER ask a girl about her weight / age, a good way to circumvent this is by asking her to post a pic of her on the bike!

Of course you can ask a girl about her weight.  It is one of the cheapest and most conevnient ways to commit suicide.   :ricky:
