With absolutely pure luck - almost nothing, except huge physical and mental shock. The body was so filled with adrenaline, that we had problems moving for the whole week, seriously! X-rays showed no internal bleedings or broken bones. I had ribs and chest collapsed to critical level, hard to breathe for a month, but just enough that they didn't broke. Bike rolled over us many times, 1 metre from one tree, 1 metre from other tree we rolled off the road with highway speed. Still can't believe we're alive and/or not in a pushchair or in the coma if hitting just one of those trees. Gf losed counciousness for few minutes, she ended up under the bike with broken gas tank and the fuel spilled on to her and to hot exhaust!!! I ended up 5 metres ahead the bike and i ran back to bike to help the GF under the bike with shocking view that it could explode any time while she's fully soaked with petrol! Had to lift up fully loaded bike felt like air-light with all that adrenaline in my blood with that view. Again, pure luck - there was no explosion. I still have some minor problems with ma kidneys, it still hurts here-and-there doing rapid moves, but other than that we're OK by now.

Hey briv

Ever see that movie 'Jacob's Ladder'? Tim Robbins runs away from people with blurry faces...scary...

What's up with the clone bikes? Was it intentional? What's the story?

No clones it just happend, when I got hold of the first one all my mates just drooled and we seached that cape flat for some more and low and behold they poped out all around us. 3 are UK Specd and one is the so called ''Grey'' they have 3800km,4200km,8300km,and 12300km on and all are exeptional runners some guys paid the price premiums and some walked away with bargains. We had the two BMW R1200GS's along; what a pleasure to be able to keep up with them and not rev the K***K out of a single.

Very well done! What do you do for a living, Usurper?

(Maybe this must be under "Bikes" section?)


Must admit, I agree maybe a moderator/admin can move it, this post is meant for pics like this!



And meet my puppy!

Outside PineTown, before road through pine forest / sugar cane crop.


Man it handles so flippen well  :)


Thinus... I'm seeing some scary thing in your photo. I suppose that Bm of yours only handles very well on the dry road because the rotation of that Anakee front tyre tells me that bike is suppose to be riding on top of water or backwards.
Please check out the rotation on the sidewall.

Cheers

Not clever posting a statement when you do not know your Ar#e from your elbow.
Very clever to do it as guest!

Front tyre primary objective, braking!
Rear tyre primary objective Drive!

Please see the ADV piggys below!


For ref, I noted Jeremy Mansfield had his on the front the wrong way round!

:D I was one of the Wrong Way Round members. I got my bike the Wednesday and Thursday morning we left for the gr8 Sabie weekend. I've never ridden a bike on a public road before and got my learners a few months back. Being a MX rider helped me a lot. The guys were very supportive during the few days and I will ride with them anytime in the near future. Currently in the UK, missing my baby like crazy, wish I was home to take on the open roads of SA.
