Gotta love this here forum.  Speculate all you like as to why the bike was not recovered over the wall in some gentler manner, but no speculation allowed on how it got over the wall in the first place, now what damage was done.   :imaposer:


Remember arguing over the internet about non-issues is stupid   :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:


Say what!?  Seriously?  No way!   :lol8:

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.

Daai grondversteuring is dalk waar die GS ryer geland het.  Dit lyk vir my so tipiese GS ryer gat breedte.   :lol8:

This movie deserves an Oscar.

What I was thinking too.
The only decent way to treat a GS.


 :imaposer:

How about a yearly "Pull your GS over a wall challenge"?   Riders could choose between a green wall, say 2 feet high, and a black wall, about a metre high. :ricky:

If it was a KTM it wouldn't have gone over the side in the first place.  Surely you have seen enough posts by us "KTM riders" to know that?  So now we have at least one factual statement in this discussion.

Its irrelevant of how the bike ended up there or what the damage to it was prior to its so called recovery. The tappits actions and attitude is deplorable,

Well, in that case, be grateful that I was not tasked with the recovery. >:D

Al wat deplorable is is dat hulle net 1 kamera angle het.

Shit bike, shit bakkie ...................... but one helluva strap  :thumleft:
go wipe your mouth.............LOL

Any bike is a good bike if its yours.

As far as the bakkie goes, you obviously ride a vehicle designed and built by the japanese to appease the masses.

I'm willing to put money on it that the oke driving the bakkie is a KTM or Yamaha owner  :o

This is the view from the top of the pass, you can clearly see where the GS landed.

How the bike got there is pretty relevant as that would indicate the amount of damage already suffered.  Recovering a bike, already FUBAR like that is not anywhere near as deploreable than pulling a perfectly good bike over the retaining wall in front of the local coffee shop.

Personally, I would have just unloaded my other valuables, packed it in the bakkie, made the call to the insurance with a pin drop for the insurance and gone home.  Leave the recovery to the insurer and his chosen recovery dude.
