I would love to know where it is, it vaguely looks like the "Ice Corner" at the top of Sani? But that never had Gabions, they do look newish.  :sip:

Agreed, when we went through there a few years ago I remember Gabions towards the mountain side, but not at the edge of the road
I find it unbelievable that with all the know it alls on this forum, no one know the story behind this   :pot:

Jinne!  I see one or two dudes on the WD FB Group foaming around the mouth about this story.  You'd think it is their bike maltreated like that.   :eek7:

My take on this is that, if the rider went over the top gabion with his bike, would have been looked after first.
By the time the rider was cleared off, his mates, or whoever that person is (maybe he not even a biker, he might simply be a friendly guy who stopped to help), have had a long day, adrenaline is wearing off and energy levels are going. The day is getting late,  you've lost a few hours and you still need to get to your spot for the night, which could be tricky in Lesotho.

Now, that whole mouthful comes from someone who HAS gone over the edge in Lesotho. My bike was winched back up the embankment. When that kind of shit happens, you do what you can, but spending a night out at those heights at the tail end of winter is not an option.

EDIT: Seeing the guy's clothes, it is riding clothes, so probably a rider.

I reckon that move probably voided any insurance claim - 'additional damage inflicted to vehicle to ensure it is written off or larger setlement'.  ::)

I also reckon a few less garage pies and he would not have needed a mobile 1250 block of flats  :imaposer:

Probably a rider, but not a GS rider/lover

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:
and one should remember not to piss off possible customers. :snorting:

You and Woolly are then not possible customers  :thumleft:   @RobC

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




So are you going to keep avoiding my question after you realised that you have just fucked up?

All these comments about a fubar bike, tsk tsk tsk!
None of you actually gets it do you?
Collectively colourblind?

Biiiig towstrap, purposely adjusted camera angle ..... it's a FORD bakkie, offroad nogals!

Off road?  The bakkie seems on a road to me.  A shitty road perhaps, but a road nevertheless.  :snorting:
