Bikers ignoring a fellow biker down
« on: November 25, 2019, 07:29:50 pm »
If the two riders that were on the Van der stel pass between Bot River and the Theewaterskloof Dam riding a GS 1200 and a old 650 gs yesterday are on this group,

shame on you for not trying to help one of our riding mates that had an off in front of you , this is not what I expected from dirt adventure riders. he stumbled around for a few minutes not 30 meters away from you and when we arrived some time later you did not even check to see if he was ok, you just rode off, shame on you.

This is sad to read about this type of disregard for looking out for another fellow biker's best interest.  :-\ :-\

It starts with bikers greeting each other on the road.

Do you all stop at a car accidents, i don't normally unless I'm first on the scene , why should it be compulsory for a bike.. Needless to say i would stop and have before but many others are just scared.  :sip:

Is hy darem ok?

bit shaken up , it was on a 90 deg bend he overcooked the corner and focused on the concrete drain ditch, kicked the bike away before he hit the ditch, lucky no damage to him and the bike a GS800A only had minor scratches, and these two did not even move , by the time I got there a bakkie had stopped and the bikers just got on their bike and rode off ,

for those of you that know the road, the bend just before the low level bridge close to the T junction the other two twits were parked on the bridge.

they were first on the seen , they were already stopped on the bridge when he missed the corner right behind them , they were off their bikes at the time and were still off their bikes when I got there, they did not even attempt to help him or us us get the bike out of the ditch,

So jy is eintlik kwaad omdat hulle nie gehelp het om die bike uit die sloot te haal nie?

as previouse comment they were on the bridge already when he missed the corner behind them, maby its just me , but if Im stopped and a fellow biker drops his bike right behind me , I will go and check that he /she is ok and attempt to help where I can .
