Yes that was me. Truck engine blew up and smoke was so thick I pulled off to the left. Bakkie stopped behind me, next moment the fender fender happened. Some people think it's only smoke and drive through it.  ::)

#$%^$%^ truck driver started his engine again later, told him straight away to switch it off.

KLE is having some panels repaired, so that's why I'm on the 1150.

I know this is way late, but I would like to thank all those fellow motorcyclists who helped last year to sort out this problem with pedestrians on the N1 at Century City. You know who you are  :thumleft:

All the footpaths have overgrown with grass again, and I have not seen a pedestrian on the road for a long time  8)

It has been quiet from my point of view, but it seems to be starting up a little again. They just fixed a fence last week, now they have broken it 10m further.

Some people just need some education or a sense of danger  :-\

Buzz I was just behind you this morning when those bastards crossed again.

Well done for stopping and kakking on them. I couldnt stop, was in bakkie in fast lane.

I did aim for the one fucker as he came running in front of me, though... :evil6:

But still...

The Century City station at the end of Sable Road is almost completed, that should solve the problem.

Some pictures taken this morning

I wish they could do something at Dunoon on the N7. The cops don't even park there with their flashing lights on anymore. Someone is going to die there again, soon.

I wonder what the cost of a pedestrian bridge is?
