It even happens to the best of them!
« on: July 06, 2021, 08:50:33 am »
One of the best vloggers - Kinga (On Her Bike - Ep. 113) manages to drop her bike in thick sand while travelling uphill.
She and Lyndon Poskitt (who broke his wrist after a fall) are, in my opinion, some of the best adventure riders, but they also manage to fall occasionally.

This is Kinga's trip in Zambia going to Lake Kariba, where she also meets up with other travellers on BMW F800GSs (One riding from Cape Town - Etienne Swarts - perhaps he is a WD?)

Even drinking Castles!!! :thumleft: :thumleft:

Even beyond them, Video of Mattias Walkner almost binning it on a water crossing on that Siberian Rally (admittedly it was pretty damn deep)

LOL - Even Lyndon Poskitt had a nasty fall in Kenya, wound up having to spend a number of weeks off the bike with broken bones in his wrist - front tube blew out at speed, on camera - about S13E6 I think, on Races To Places
