Visited ole Leon in the casualty section (a.k.a. biker's ward) of the Pretoria Academic Hospital (a.k.a. Steve Biko) 'spetel yesterday.

Obviously in pain, but in good spirits.

He has broken both bones in his lower leg - tibbiwassisname and fibbiwassisname. The one is displaced, but the other izznt.

They gave him a 'jection that makes him feel like he had three beers. I asked the charming Dr. Joubert if I could have one too but she said she needed to break my leg first - I declined.

They will probably operate today and pin a couple of tyre-levers to the bone, but the Ortho was at "theatre" (movies?). In the meantime they put on a "back-slab" (half-a-cast) to make it more comfortable

His major gripe is that he will miss the Geo Ride !

I'll pop in today and see how he's doing.

Strongs mate, I broke my tibula @ the March bash @ Clanwilliam, ......., I did wear proper gear knee/shin protectors, tall boots and the rest though  :mwink:. With the 'tyre levers' pinned in place it heals quickly :thumleft: Was back on the bike in a wizz, though still wary of deep sand since ::)
Thought so, tough behind a keyboard, but no balls.......

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Nothing

But have seen Jules take on a VW Jetta with his KLR on a ride with him and Li.
Didn't break anything, just some scratches. The Jetta - ja well!!!
The conundrum that is life...
You have to be absolutely smashed to have the guts to attempt it,
But perfectly sober to achieve any success!
