There are old riders, and bold riders, but no old, bold riders.

Do not ride faster than your guardian angel can fly!

Looks like an aircraft crash site. Everything destroyed and flattened. Hope the rider[and passenger] is OK.

Hey Nannie, dit is Peter Teague gewees. Van FB af...

"Mark Dodkins Hi Gerard. Unfortunately it was Peter Teague involved in the accident. News is that he has a broken nose, bruising and concussion and has been taken to Hillcrest hospital for observation."

Glad he is sort of alright!

From the couple of times I have ridden a sidecar, and I have raced a deviation from a sidecar as well, I have learned that these are not easy to ride and that
you need to concentrate above-averagely, until I suppose you get that "sidecar instinct"

 :eek:  Eish!  luckily he was not riding alone... imagine going farming like that in a full stand of sugarcane... they'll only discover you the following summer...
Glad to know he is sort of ok, must've been quite a scary trip

A friend of a friend was riding behind Peter T and said Peter over took a car as a left hand corner approached.
So, with trying to get back to the left lane and go around a left corner, that was tightening up, with a left hand
Side car = trouble. Thank goodness there was a good field to do aero acrobats on and not a forest or cliff edge.

Anyway, Peter is in good spirits and talking about buying the bike back from insurance and rebuilding it.

Happy ending.

"had"  being the proverbial word here I think.

I have the greatest respect for sidecar riders and especially the monkey.
