Why does there have to be a point ? Just some additional info added in the article how it is that more than one bike was involved  :sip:

Subie's point has absolute relevance.

I have seen how the Harley guys ride in formation, and this maximises the toll if someone hits the group.

Sad, on their way to a nice weekend.

RIP  :'(

On the last long weekend, I was on my way from Bloem to PE, about 40 Harleys came from the front, not in staggered formation, but next to each other in two lines.
If the first oke goes down, there will be no time to react for the others and they will go down also. It looked awesome, but in the same sense very scary also.

Manic was that on the 20th September?

I was coming back from the Cape and also saw about 30 or 40 Harleys traveling in close formation between Colesburg and Bloem and had the same thoughts.

RIP and condolences to those involved.

Im towing the Race Car down to PE in 2 and a half weeks and will taking that route. Dreading the drive as people drive like idiots.
