« on: February 14, 2010, 01:35:04 pm »
I joined Briv and Hannes for my last ride for a number of months.  Breakfeast in Greyton,  to Riviersonderend,  Napier en dan Baardskeerdersbos.  About 8 km's from Baardskeerdersbos whe found this abandoned in the road





That was after a few cold ones here:

Perhaps he just found a BMW and traded up, and figured the KTM wasnt worth much in comparison  :biggrin: :imaposer:

Leave your bike standing like that in Gauteng, or Lesotho,  and it won't be there when you get back!!

The rider was lying in the bush next to the road with his Glock just waiting for someone to dare touch his bike, while his mate with the bakkie went to get the wheel fixed.

I am sure if the rider had a choice he would not have left it like that - would love to hear the story...

Very sensible guy.
He took the most valuable part of the bike with him.

I think the hot air from the BMs is the exhaust. remember, the BMs are running, the KTM is found on the road dead  :biggrin: :imaposer:
