Tankgirl UP!!!
« on: February 09, 2010, 01:44:25 pm »
Just got word Tankgirl went down some time this morning on the N1 (I assume Pretoria area).  In theatre at the moment in Kloof hospital.  Was apparently on the radio.  Don't have much more detail.  Did hear the bike is a write-off and she is hurt but not too seriously at this stage... :(

Sorry to hear!
bike; transalp 400! there are old bikers and bold bikers! but no, old bold bikers!!!
Studys have shown that motorcycleing requires more decisions per second, and more data proccesing than nearly any other common activity or sport. the reactions and accurate decision makeing abilities, have been likened to the reactions of fighter pilots!

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
