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

It's not that life is too short. It's just that you're dead for so long.

Was just wondering how some of these bikes can cross when completely or even partially submerged in water.  How about the air in take?

This was a magnificent crossing during floods in the Rooiberg pass area (Vanwyksdorp). And you have to take my word for it cause I was solo. The water actually started around the bend at the back.

But can you do it on a boy road racer? Near Beestekraal in the Old Transvaal, mid-eighties.

Sorry, this pic is somewhere else on the forum, but I couldn't resist.
