Sad news. A friend just told me he was behind the bike when it happened the bike passed him just before the Sable Road bridge, as he went under the bridge it looked like the wind swept him to the side and he then started to get what looked like a tank slapper...veered towards the cement barrier and...

Tragic! Sincere condolences..........
This is now happening far too often.

Scary to learn that the wind took him out of control. Not that I necessarily agree that here in PE it's any worse than anywhere else, but it can get a bit dodgy at times on certain stretches of road. Sad to hear of yet another biker coming to grief.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Ai man.................dis nou 'n skok !!! :-\  :'(

Just got a call that my cousin, Klomper on WD, was involved in an accident last night with his bike on the N1.

He passed away on impact.

I have no words. Just thought to let those who knew him know. I don't have any more details than this.
Condolences DirtRebell. :-\

My sympathies and prayers for you and the family!
