it's actually the story of a guy that never stops pushing the limits.
the day you stop pushing is the you stop learning.

Important thing is that he gets up everytime and continues with his riding. He rode some hectic terrain this weekend with a burst open knee, and even rode back like that.

I was wondering if anyone, who's done a fair amount of riding, hasn't had a wipeout resulting in treatment being needed to either bike or body??

Or, perhaps - is there anyone who thinks this will never happen to them?

Um, one of many, many falls!



Ag nee shucks, dis sulke goed wat maak ek sommer 'n platkar soos 'n E63 of R8 of ding kry ipv 'n bike! :imaposer:
That fall didnt sound nice Andrew, you gulping for air there, not good sound, not good! Eish!
Ja, part of the package hey? :mwink:

Although I was only witness to one of these memorable occasions once, you have got a reputation dude. Real life legend for investing in real estate with blood and sweat (no tears).

 :o  eish... eina! Wes, maybe you should learn how to fall so that you not injure yourself  :) I normally pick a nice sandy spot... aim... squirt... and then make it lay down nicely while getting off in one smooth motion... not in mid-air  :imaposer:

BIG THANKS to Wes.... :thumleft:

I believe in the force / Karma call it what you will and the Wes is taking a lot of falls we might have had, there is only so many falls for riders and he is using a lot of them.  :mwink:
