What the hell happened there Archangel?

Being windgat, riding the 950 like a motard. I thought I had it waxed, been round and round that circle very sideways before.   :ricky:


Generally works well when there's not too many road markings or gravel on the tar...

My biggest off with my previous bike.  The Vara.

After wanting to visit a friend (that was not at  home when I arrived there), at the palce where the 2006 GS Challenge was held, it was raining quite hard whilst waiting at his place.  Enjoyed a loovely view of Visierskerf mountain.  In the meantime that road become v ery wet and very sliipery.  Decied then to tackle the road back home and guess whyo was lurking next to the road.

Did nice sli and slides at slow speed.

Did the one thing looked at the ditch next to the road I did not wanted to go.

An unsuspected soft patch  and  went into  the ditch.  Riding in the dicth I stood up and as I opened up, I suspect my front wheel hit a rock and the next moment I was doing breast stroke in the ditch and my Vara chasing me side ways on its side.

Fisrt pic bike parked in the rain before the off. 
Nect pic after the off ( side ways in the ditch)
And at the end of the gravel ??  road at T junction with tar   going home after the ditch.

A few scratches on the right hand side, a bent back-brake lever and later  aright peg that broke off.  Myself , just a sore right shoulder a bit blue hip  and a thankfull  attitude that that nothing serious was wrong.

Let us love people and use things, and not love things and use people.

Kak ryers val maar so, maak nie saak watter fiets nie.

Ja dit is die Old Postman's trail.

Die hoek van die kamera was bietjie af. Ek was bietjie ongelukkig met myself daaroor.

Ek het ook gevind dat die grootste probleem was dat die GPS teen to tankbag gedruk het. Dit het ook nie gehelp dat die skroewe 'n paar maande voor dit uit my been gekom het nie. So ek moes meeste van my gewig op my liker been dra. (Ek het nog baie swak verskonings, vra net.  :mwink:)
