I would like to thank everyone for the contributions made to Gideon family. Last transfer was done this morning and I can promised you that your contribution made a big difference.

If you are interested in the amount raised please om me.



As Iím sure most of you know by now, our friend and fellow Wild Dog Gideon passed away after a fatal bike accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Nicolene and kids. His kindness did not stop even in death as he donated his organs to much needed recipients and we salute him for this priceless gift of life to others.

Obviously after such a horrible accident so far from Gideonís home, the wreck had to be recovered from tow truck vultures at a storage fee in excess of R2000 per day.  Conrad from Offroad Cycles selflessly took it upon himself to drive to Witbank to collect the wreck, sorted out alot of red tape at  SAPS on a day where the mercury measured in the high 30ís. This set him back over R7000 and he is still in the process of trying to facilitate an insurance claim to assist Gideonís family who are in dire need of financial assistance.

I am in the process of raising funds for the family and to reimburse Conrad.  Any donations will be highly appreciated and can be made to the following bank account: Acc name - A Winter Nedbank Acc no: 247 903 2523 Br code: 198 765 Savings acc. Please use reference ďGideonĒ followed by your forum name.

RIP Gideon - your smile and contagious laughter will never fade from our memories

Hi,

Will it be ok if I pay it directly into Off road cycle's account?

I saw his bakkie with the damaged bike in pretoria late yesterday afternoon. Did not realise it was this specific bike.

Please let's keep it centralized in on account. Also from an business view point think its better to keep separate.

Have been following the thread about his accident, I did not know him, but the comments made on that thread are a very clear indication of what kind of person he was. Accidents happen, and it could have been anyone of us in the same situation. My heart goes out to his family, Christmas season will never be the same for them, and it is certainly not a nice time of the year to be struggling financially. Payment made, not much, and I am sure a penny drop in the ocean amongst the costs they are facing. Please pass on my sincere condolences to his wife and family, well done to all getting involved to assist the family, the world needs more people like you.

Ek het Gideon geken, nie goed geken nie maar hy was n spesiale mens. Hy het altyd gelag en n besonderse sin vir Humor gehad. Ek weet hy was baie lief vir sy 800 Tiger.

Rus sag ou mater....... En baie sterkte aan sy vrou en kinders en al sy familie en vriende.

Ek het n oorbetaling gedoen uit my FNB rek uit so dit sal seker oor n dag of 2 wys.

Slaaiblaar dankie vir wat jy doen......
