Put the man on the back of my bike and made him moan for 35k's back to Burgersdorp hospital. In and out of consciousness with 16 fractures he manned up and headed back to Ct that same night by miricale. Hi five to Leatt. So sure am i that Mambat life was saved by his leatt brace. Guys get one asap. Its cheaper than the paint job on a wheelchair.  :deal:

Rhodes came with great memories of the huge snow falls that landed us stranded there for 2 days in August of last year. Our boose bill was not as agressive this time being once again shocked by what can actually happen on these trips.  :-\
