You know its a Jules ride when..... (Potch 27 June 2010)
« on: June 27, 2010, 06:09:50 pm »
The ambulance arrives  :o


But lets start at the beginning.

8 of us met up at Pinehaven this morning at 8ish, Tails were sniffed and fuel put in and we were off,


The first stretch of this ride is about 60km's tar before you get to the good stuff.

Ganjora only did the first section with us and then had to head to DR KLR's place for more Bling! Down to seven.

Usurper ran late and ended up running out of fuel on the way to the meeting spot and met us along the way so we were back to eight again.

All went well apart from the dust until some railroad ballast stones got the better of Nicky and down she went, she was shaken but not stirred but the bike had a broken clutch lever.
I raced back and cable tied a solution and quick as a flash we all got ready to leave when, I discovered a F*&%$ puncture on my rear wheel  >:(
3 tubes later and we were on the way again (1 pinched and 2 buggerd after unpacking them)











We made Potch at around 1ish and had a great lunch at Die Akker (as usual) a few of the guys debated taking tar back from lunch to get back in time for the soccer but decided to do the dirt instead as we were still on track as far as timing went.

About 20k's out of Potch we hit a rather large rut that was hiding behind a small hill, Killi Kid was thrown off line by the rut and his boot got twisted between the embankment and the bike.
He rode on for about 500meters and then looked down to see his foot facing back-wards, He got such a shock that he simply slowed down and let the bike fall over,

Usurper who was right behind him hit the same rut and fell over but luckily without any injury,

It was a big shock to turn around and come up on this site





We arranged an ambulance and some very kind local farmers offered to store Kili's bike in the shed till it can be collected,

The Ambulance was there within 20 minutes  :thumleft:

Here is the rut that caused the kak
He was in the left lane.


Where his foot got jammed



Where he eventually stopped (20 meters beyond the guys in this pic)


Are the drugs working yet?


Ian I hope you heal up quickly and we see you around Soon! let us know if you need anything.

Thanks to the rest of you for joining and being such great DOGS!

Ouch, that is not a good sight and it brings back bad memories.  >:(

Jules at least this time you did warn the guys that it would be a high speed run, and looking at that rut, well anybody could have trouble there, even at slower speeds.
Kili Kid, all the best man. Take it easy, and give that leg all the time it needs to heal. Hopefully someone will keep us up to date on Kili Kid's condition? 

THE JULES REPUTATION IS INTACT!  :biggrin:

Everything of the best Ian. Spoke to you this morning at Pinehaven.

I had a similar incident many moons ago, riding enduro and a car came from the opposite direction on the track hidden amongst trees, long story short my foot got jammed in the wheel arch, result, broken ankle now 'fixed' with screws.

MAn tat looks terrible!
Hope you'll be up and about in 6 weeks  :thumleft:

9/11
The amount of Dogs (including myself) hurting themselves lately is quite alarming.
I reckon we've gopt to slow down a bit and appreciate the scenery.

and looking at that rut, well anybody could have trouble there, even at slower speeds.

That is 100% correct!!! being behind Ian and seeing him gooi a moerse woblly in the ditch (where he actually did not fall, he rode it through) at that moment I knew that this exact hypothesis will be put forward on the forum so I tested it!
I had slowed down, thinking that Ian was in the process of coming off, and when he didnt, I went into the same ditch at a lower speed. My front wheel got thrown off by the ridge in the middle of the ditch after which I promptly dropped the bike on the middle mannetjie.

Man!! You could see Ian was in pain! but he toke it! If they moved me around with my foot pointing in the wrong direction, the ref on the pitch at soccer city would have heard me!

Oh and what a d@*s was I; ran out of fuel on the N14 less than 5 km from the 4way stop....    :BangHead:
Never underestimate the stopping power of a tree!
