Sorry Rob, maar daai effe versteuring in die grong lyk nie vir my na n GS1200 landingstrook nie.

Ek bedoel, jy kan nie n behoueringskip daarin pas nie.

Aan die ander kant, waarom is die aardbol skielik so gepla met nuwe seismiese gebeure??

Kan net n GS landing wees vanaf ten minste 3 meter.

That bike is fucked. Written off. Basically junk. Don't feel for things without feeling. That's what insurance is for.

We are talking about a bike, not a girlfriend or wife...

One thing I learned from this post....... What a gabion wall is  :imaposer:

......and that the forum is blessed with a crash/accident scene investigators of world standard, that can explain the
finer details of an accident by just looking at a printscreen  :lol8: :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:
Video... huge diffrence... :snorting:



Maar Robbie, die video is mos nie oor hoe hy daar geland het nie, dis oor hoe hy daar uitkom. Ons weet dus almal, danksy die video, hoe hy daar uitgekom het. :pot:

I agree that it came over the higher gabion wall.

You are guessing. You dont know it for fact

@Operator

Do you have difficulty comprehending the word "opinion"? Please point out where in my post did I claim it as "fact"?

Fuck, some people have nothing to do................ :snorting: :snorting: :snorting:

Ouch, that vid makes me cringe, maybe I have too much sympathy for inanimate objects but I would have done my best not to cause further damage.
It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

Guys, how else was he to recover that bike? I agree that it came over the higher gabion wall. Somehow he had to make a plan to get the scoot on the back of the Ford bakkie to present the damage to his insurers.

3 or 4 big guys would be able to pick that up and carry it over
I have seen videos with 3 criminals stealing a GSA out of a garage and carrying it over the owners Car bonnet
Cant say that they didnt cause damage, but it can be picked up

Would be easier to move the wall than pick up that bike

I am surprised that heavy bike didnt pull the bakkie over the wall ...there must have been another bakkie tied to the bakkie tied to the bike
The older I get the faster I was

is no one else wondering how long did 2SD just sit back, legs on the table, and watched that on repeat?

Probably got a beer now and still at it!

I think the owner normally rode plastics. Then wifey wanted to join the adventure hence the GS. With sena connected helmets.

Here by day 3 he decided thats is it. He has to park the bike in a very special way so that they can go home by car.

He will then tell her that this never happend on his plastics. Therefore he will, for her safety only, from now on stick to single seat small tank bikes.

weather already written off .......and insurance told them to just get it back ........what ever the reason its not nice to see be it any bike like this.....sad to say....

one has to wonder about the back story and if the rider came out ok....

personally think the recovery of the bike is a bit harsh to say the least
mother ....only half a word ;-)

Front end appears to be bent backwards if you look carefully so that means that there was no way of pushing the bike .
