while new to this forum (i don't even own a "proper" bike yet) this is still terrible news for me... I'm glad to hear RA is doing better, and wish him a speedy recovery... my prayers go out to him and his family...

Thanx to all responses
I spoke to RA yesterday-he sounds in good spirit, but pain is bad and breathing and talking is sore. Will print out this topic on forum and take to him.
)WERNER


TRUST ME WERNER, ribs are some of the most painful things, you cannot stop using them, for obvious reasons. It will be bad for a while, don,t make him laugh, and a sneeze could put him back a week, even a fart hurts for some reason.

Give him our best wishes.

Ag no man, what a terrible thread.

I wish you all the best, Red Adventure. Saw the bike on the trailer inside Hamman Motorrad on Sunday, I only saw the bent mirror and scraping on the right hand side of the tank, and wondered if I knew the bike. Today it struck me, Red Adventure, and I knew.

Good luck, God Bless!

Hi all
I spoke to RA this morning, must say he sounds his old self again.
Apparently he is working on the staffs nerves (which must be a good thing).
He says he wishes he could get hold of a laptop to get on the forum himself-
I think he has things to say about ATGATT
They are planning to operate on his ankle tomorrow and then he is talking about going home in another 2 days. If that is so I can only say one thing other than "miracle" and that is "his poor wife!!"

Everyone
Here is a wild card:
Most of RA's gear was wrecked (and not insured). The one thing that he was fond of and that did bring its part in the crash and that is now pretty much stuffed , was his GS-gloves. They are f*ck#ng expensive. I spoke to Chris
Hamman at Hamman-motorrad and he will part with a pair for R580.00.
I am prepared to sponsor half of that amount as a get-well gift. Who else is in ??
Ps. JohanGPS and his wife has got a silent bet on (no money involved)- she says he will be back in the saddle in 6 months. He says 3. I tend to take his side on 3 months

I did not want to ask about his gear because the poor guy is not on his feet yet, but seeing that you mentioned it.  What was he wearing? Did he roll / slide etc?  State of his helmets / boots?  

Can't we learn something from it?  

Some brand make some strong statements. What is the real story?  

Should we start a new thread on this, admins?

I'm in, for sure. How about we have a collection at Krige's in Durbanville (aka Alberto's) on Friday?
