Morning WD's,

Feeling less like scrambled brains this morning ;D, thought I will make a quick post and thank all those people who have helped me and were such great support. WD rock!!!!!!!

I want to thank all the Dogs who rallied round when I binned my bike, particularlly Goose and his lovely lady Jenny who visited me in hospital and brought good cheer, flowers and card with wishes from so many people, to Xerys who also visited me in hospital spoiling me with more flowers. Thank you to Mark Hardy and his band of merry men who put on a show of skill in the hospital car park to brighten my day. Thank you to Go Girl. Debs, thank you so much for the generous loan of your Isuzu. I don't know how we would have managed without it. Thank you to all the dogs who joined us for a quick meal at Doodles, it was great to meet you all. Lastly I would like to thank my man, Adv and my daughter Kaylee for all the love, support and help, I'm sorry for all the kark and work I've created. I love you both :) :)

Kurt and Carol

Have been away and had no inkling of this. Got a fright when started picking up clues in threads that something was amiss.

Glad to hear that all is turning out well and that Carol is on the mend.

Thanks to all Cape Town WD's etc for running to help them. Proud of you.

You is posting again!

It was really lekker meeting you and your family. That night at Doodles was great.
Would love to meet up again under less 'strenuous' circumstances.

Wish I could have been of more help, but it seems that I was standing in a long line of willing and eager helpers.

Yeah - proud to be part of this group.

Take care and I hope total recovery is quick and painless.



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

Sorry I was away, Eisbein relayed the news to me. Glad to hear you are up and about again. By sound of things the support has been great with hospital visits and wheelies.  ;)

I eventually managed to track down the family that took Peaches to Ceres, got hold of BMW-on-Call, they gave me the number of Mount Cedar, the guys that decided it was unsafe to leave Peaches' bike in the veld, scooped it onto their bakkie (unbeknown to me) phoned BMW-on-Call to tell them they had this bike,(quoted number under saddle), luckily they knew the guy that picked up Peaches, he lives in Durbanville, they gave me his number and I could eventually phone the guy and personally thank him, Peaches also was able to talk to him under less painful conditions.
Next time we are in CT we will pop in and visit them.

If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Jeez - i'm deur die kak.....

Only find out today after Kurt phoned me.... ::)

Plse next time - indicate something in the title ;D

I thought this thread was about Adv and kie's trip in and around CT - something I really don't wanna see after my move  ;D - not that I miss CT  :P :-[

Best wishes Carol - I'm just happy everything turned out ok - metal and rubber we can replace, but lives never.

Sometimes this band of dogs makes me so proud, I'm sommer lus and organise drinks at the Bosvelder, wait - lets sommer do it, no wait its done....

Proud H

The name of the thread was originally something like : Wilddog down in the Cape.

Then Carol surprised everybody by showing what kind of strong woman she is and it was decided to change the name of the thread to what it is now.

It was basically done as a token of support for Carol.

Thanks to Adventurer for mentioning this side of the story.
I heard the news of the accident from Thomas at Mount Ceder during our New Years visit not knowing it involved a  forum member.
Over the last 7 years of running my business I had to deal with a number of incidents / accidents / breakdowns and in every single case the reaction & response of bystanders or people who happened to arive at the scene of an accident first put all the negative yada yada about South Africa being ohhhh so horrible & dangerous into the right light.
The experiences range from recovery and safekeeping of bikes after accidents and breakdowns and transporting injured  riders to hospital all the way to a Ceres Karoo farmer driving almost 200 km back and forth to fetch tire cement & fix a puncture.
I myself also had plenty of people stop and ask if I'm ok while I only tried to relax my sore butt, take a pic or drain my bladder :D

BTW: All the best to Peaches. Hope you will be back riding in the Cederberg some day.

All the heartwarming sympathy, goodness, compassion, friendliness, helpfulness and overall nice things that flow from this thread so far are almost too good to believe! It is good to know that this is the type of company one finds oneself in on this Forum. Marvelous 8) Best whishes to you Peaches for a perfect recovery!
