BAD NEWS!
« on: February 11, 2007, 07:02:33 am »
A great day at the Nelsons Creek BMW-gathering in Wellington yesterday ended not so well after Red Adventure came off his bike on our way home.
At the moment he is in ICU in Durbanville Mediclinic with a broken wrist, shattered ankle, a few ribs broken clean off at the back and a bruised lung.
He was OK (tough) enough to walk into the hospital himself after his wife had to take him there because of incompetent and slow response from ambulance-service.
For all who don't know him, he's a great guy and prayers and thoughts towards speedy and full recovery would be good at this time.

Ps thanx to motorist and fellow bikers who stopped at accident scene to help and for JohanGPS who rushed through in his bakkie like a bat-out-of-hell to come help and arrange for bike (write-off I think after rolling 150 meters down a tar-road) to be taken away.

Never good to hear about a fellow rider going down.

Best wishes for recovery.

And the bike rolled 150 meters down the road? :shock:
It's not just a mode of transport, it's a fking adventure!

It has been said before for other incidents but I think it should be said again.  It's people like Johan and the others, willing to help fellow forum members when the sh1t hits the fan, that helps to make it a great forum.  :thumbright: :salute:
