Dave was on his new 690 motard yesterday afternoon when he was hit by a car on the corner of William Nicol and Peter Place.

He's got multiple injuries and is currently in ICU.

Dont have a lot of info yet, but will post later in the day, after I've spoken to his wife again.
Ag no! Strongs to the family as well.

I've seen a couple bike accidents at that intersection and go through there fairly often.  I'm trying to figure out why it's a bad one for bikes though.

Possibly the timing on the lights? I've seen that drivers seem to be more impatient there.

Good luck to Ganjora! Get well soon.

Or because many seem to not care about a light being red or the green arrow that has stopped flashing. I was very close to being taken out this morning like this. Thank goodness i saw the fucker and I didnt pull away quickly or a second earlier, and that my bike has damn good brakes and that the guy behind me didnt rear end me etc etc.

Anyway hope you have a speedy recovery Dave.

Here's to a full and speedy recovery G-Man... and take a hit or two of that mountain-cabbage.
All the best to you and your family

So far it looks like he's got about 7 broken ribs and punctured lung and a broken collarbone.

There might be more injuries but they are for now focusing on the punctured lung as it the biggest and
most critical injury

He is still sedated and in a lot of pain.

Belinda said that she will give updates to me, and I will post it here.....


He is in Sunninghill Netcare in Sandton in ICU
