Van Reenen Crash . R I P Fellow Riders
« on: September 06, 2015, 01:08:16 am »
I seriously hope they're not Wilddogs, but I just read of 2 people dying on Van Reenens Pass. The picture on the News24 app is a bit small, but it looks like a 1200GS . . .

eish  >:(

also, I am not sure whether these kind of things get posted here (??)

Hard to say from the photo, but assuming the vehicles are still in the same position they were when the accident happened then it looks like the bakkie was in the path of the oncoming traffic and the bike slammed into the front of it.

RIP... Very sad.

We've just returned from the Sabi area and the rain and mist was as thick as pea soup, yet cars insist on driving with out headlights and at breakneck speed..

We had a close call on longtom pass, Lady Luck was on our side. :o
