22k for a brake lever?
I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people ... I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out

When I saw that front wheel wash out and heard the Honda grind on the concrete strip road I knew it was not going to be a cheap round mate - do the insurance thing and have fun!!
At least now you don't have to worry about dropping your bike anymore
Now your bike has houding!!!

Can't view the video. It says it's been blocked on copyright grounds. Robin has been stealing music. Tsk tsk!

22k for a brake lever?

thanks to a very oversized gs parked too close to me and the concrete floor all damages total 22k.
im going the insurance route for sure. will submit all paperwork on Monday.

So almost 24hrs in the saddle. No wonder my ass felt used and tender.
Or was that from Kevvvy......?

Some more pics. Packing up after spending a lekker evening at KTM Kev's place with no electricity but plenty of good food, laughter and spirit......and spirits also , like the one of the drowned fisherman .  >:D

I don't think anyone of us relished doing that twee spoor first thing in the morning on a nugter maag , me especially . A few of us tasted sand or visited the bushes or both .   :imaposer:  Actually it wasn't so bad, we all made it , an after that we had some good gravel roads, but still very beautiful surroundings to ride through .  :ricky:

 I should have taken more pics of the riding and the scenery , not just the stops  When I ride, I dislike stopping to take pics , but it makes for a much nicer RR , when people do stop and take pics . So will try next time .

I loved the interlude with the sheep .  :3some: Those sheep-dogs were so young , but already so instinctively protective over their sheep. The dogs were quite curious about the bikes. I wish I had ridden closer or zoomed , but if you look hard enough there are sheep and dogs in these fotos.  :biggrin:

Bradley was not mentioned, is that because what happens at the bash stays at the bash?

As I said I had a choice, not that I did not have fun but I would have done better by riding to the EC Bash instead. Next Time
