The biggest pain in my ass is the guys standing on their bikes reving the tits out of the bike. And they think they look y cool they look like complete idiots what is the big thing about reving your bike flat out while standing still one day I'm going to kick one into gear and hope the fool falls his ass off

Anyway thought I just let you guys know that a good friend of mine was attacked  by a few guys on Harleys in Clarens on Thursday night.

After a 5 hour op they could not save his eye !!!

Broken jaw bone and nose as well !!!

A case has been made and I will start a chat and expose these huligans shortly.

Never heard of a off road event going this way ever ... best I stay on my dirt bikes  :ricky:






Indefensible no matter what transpired. It does appear that he came to the defence of a girl who was being verbally abused by these tough weekend warriors.

These Harley okes must be a bunch of nambie-pambies.... 4 against 1???  They always have to ride in groups in case they get lost in a wayward town & get their asses and chrome stripped off! :pot: :patch:

4 against 1 are good odds for me, then I only have to put in half an effort to defend myself. On a serious note, I hope this incident does not harm the biking community as a whole.

Just got back home from a great time in Margate - definately worth the effort and had the opportunity to personally meet Mr Davidson Jr - what a great guy.  Despite the fact that I'm not a huge Harley fan (although my opinion changed somewhat over the last few days) I really enjoyed the 'gees' that goes on in these circles - maybe that's because there were so many adventure bikes in Margate  ;D ;D ;D  ....check these out....
