Wilddog up and about in the Cape
« on: December 28, 2007, 09:17:38 am »
I have some sad news.

Adventurer asked me to post news of the unfortunate incident. Peaches had a big fall about 25 km out of Cederberg on the way to Ceres.

Adventurer doesn't know what happened exactly as he was riding in the front at the time.

Peaches is still heavily sedated but being moved from ICU to high care.

The GS was badly damaged and appears to be a write off.

PS - if anybody is able to contact Mark Hardy please ask him to get in touch with Adventurer.

Aaaaag neeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

:(

That's no way to start a holiday.

And they've been so looking forward to it!

I hate it to see / hear about fellow bikers going down - it hurts even more if its one of us.

:( :( :(

Not lekker.

Thanks for letting us know and please keep us posted.

Not good news at all!!  Was at Donford this morning and the technician told me about the crash and the bike he had to pick up in the Cederberg.  Apparently the bike doesn't look too good.

Hope Peaches feels better soon!!
Please let us know of any news?
Ability is useless unless it's used!!!
So...Gooi MIELIES!!!!

Just spoke to Mark - he doesn't have his PC's (and obviously forum access) at home at the moment, but he's got adventurer's number and will get hold of him.

Well said, MB.

I feel the same - Vicky is at home and she's available to drive around/help/pick up stuff.

Do we know at what hospital peaches is ?
