 :( :( :(

Was this on the N2 between the Beacon Bay offramp and the NorthEast Expressway onramp at around 2pm? I was on the other side of the highway and saw a police vehicle with its lights on and an emergency vehicle arriving. There was someone on a bike, BMW I think. I just had the horrible feeling it had to be someone on the way to the bash.

Sterkte boet! Maak maar soos ek moes en luister vir die dokters, bly maar vir 'n paar dae van die fiets af as hulle so sÍ.  :( Watse ATGATT het jy aangehad, en wat is oor van dit? Post pics sodat ons kan sien wat het jou lewe gered  :thumleft:
