It is indeed very suspicious Jan, as the public would have been put to rest on the issue.

In this case it smacks of damage control by hiding the report, as the released report would probably be even more harmful.


Still, EXPLANATIONS seem to be the very thing missing from the entire affair, the ONE THING which prevents Kevin from resting in peace. BMW adding a steering damper to the bike even though claiming it wasnít exactly necessary is not helping at all, and neither is secrecy. In fact, BMWís lack of transparency in the matter is only fuelling all the ďconspiracy theoriesĒ and gives the bike a bad name.

This from https://www.autoevolution.com/news/kevin-ash-s-death-still-needs-some-explanations-78590.html

That's from 2014.

Ek het self begin bekomerd raak maar hoe meer ek na dit kyk hoe meer begin ek dink dat die 'n frats ongeluk is en iewers sal daar 'n logiese verduideliking uit kom.

Die ongeluk is op ook op ander wereldwye Africatwin groepe geplaas en sovÍr lyk dit of die die enigste geval is waarvan iemand weet, daar is selfs iemand wat al 'n 100 000 km review op sy Africatwin gedoen het waarmee hy om die wereld gery het en in sy review was daar ook niks van foutiewe remme nie.

Ek is nie 'n expert nie maar ek het 'n groot vermoede dat iewers langs die pad iets nie reg gedoen was nie, dalk is die transport boute op die calibers nie vervang met sy PDI nie en het hulle los gekom en die calipers skeef getrek, wiel nie reg terug gesit toe daar dalk bande geruil was nie ens, maar op die einde dit het gebeur en sal ek ook graag wil weet wat die oorsaak was hetsy dit iets op die fiets self is of iets is wat veroorsaak is deur foutiewe vakmanskap.

How the hell did a Honda fred turn into a BMW bashing event again?

Looks like plenty guys here suffer from severe OCD.

Johan, in both cases there is suspected yet unexplained front end failure, whether it was a collapsed front end, or a seized front wheel.

I don;t think the problem here is OCD........ O0

@Stof Gogga  Glad you are on the mend! :thumleft: Hectic crash!!! :eek:  How are you feeling today?

I think we are all very interested to help find the cause for this. Hanno below had some pretty good observations from his experience. Do you think any of this could have applied in your case?

I have seen brakes lock up on bikes before.

And normally what transpired was the following.

Rider sees that the brake fluid in the container is a bit low and tops it up.

Some time later rider replaces the brake pads. In order to do this - the brake caliper pistons are pushed back because the new pads are nice and thick again.

Problem is that now the brake fluid reservoir is overfilled.

This causes the brakes to constantly be 'engaged' . As one rides like this - with the pads just braking ever so slightly due to excess pressure from the overfilled reservoir - the calipers start to heat up until eventually  the whole lot locks up.

I have also seen this due to riders riding with their feet just resting on the rear brake lever - causing the brakes to drag until they overheat and lock up. And I have also seen this where the (aftermarket) handguard does not allow the lever to fully release - causing it to drag until lock up.

Rally nut. What could possibly go wrong?

Altie en Petrie, sy briek het vasgeslaan aan die donker kant van die streep. Ons het van die verste kant op die foto af gekom. Nie dat dit seker enigsins saak maak nie.

Ok, gotcha.

Danie ek geniet dit as jy die ouens se siele so uittrek en hulle val elke keer daarvoor. Maar lees die opskrif van diť fred, dit het minder as niks met daai ongeluk met die BMW te doen nie.  Al wat nou gebeur is mens moet deur 'n klomp onverwante BMW warrawarra ploeter om by die oorsaak van Africa Twin se oepsie uit te kom.  Lesers van diť spesifieke fred stel daarin belang, nie in die BMW se ongeluk nie. 

Kan ek vir jou 'n Onverklaarde BMW Ongeluk fred opstart dan pos jy daar?  :peepwall: :lol8:

has the bike been inspected yet? Front disks over-heated/purple? Front tyre damage due to lock-up?

Very bad idea to ride the bike without the front mud guard! :laughing4:

Luckily no permanent damage to the bike, and this fall caused me to go for a colonoscopy and gastroscopy, saving my life as the cancerous GIST was then detected, and subsequently removed. Riding a bike is essential for one's health!

I saw Leftless' conversion to high mudguard and the rerouting of the cables to accommodate, and at the time thought I would do it as well, regardless of high or low fender.
(I would go high fender in any case, not that fast that it would bother me  ::) )

Glad nothing serious happened, and something positive - get well soon, hope to see you around soon doing " Riding a bike is essential for one's health!"   :thumleft:

Maybe you should just "joke" a bit less in R&P.   ;)   

I barely ever post in R+P  ??

I explained the joke (which it was) a few posts later for those who didn't get it but I see that was removed also.   Honest question, why is "Thank God" and prayers etc. fine outside of the "Religion and Politics" section?  Doesn't seem consistent to me.
