Rider down but not out
« on: April 02, 2007, 04:35:52 pm »
Old Superjuice is a member here and he had an unfortunate accident on sunday.
Offroad riding is supposed to be a lot safer than on the road,  but he forgets to look left and right when crossing a road at Maraisburg and gets hit by a car. Come on SJ, you would not do that on your 1150.

Bent CRF250x


He is doing well, hospital put him out to clean and stitch up. Nothing major broken I believe.

SJ on da druks.


Get well soon mate !

Not lekker!  :(  Get well soon!


It is a thing that has bothered me everytime we ride remote dirt. Often one gets little small side roads/intersections joining up without any prior road signs warning you.

We have been lucky so far. At least I have been. Lot's of "intersections" crossed without stopping. (Not that I could have stopped in time. It just suddenly is there. )

He looks like he got dem.

No offense or inference, I almost took out a Quat or two at the Leurkop Prison on Main on Sunday. A black Range Rover was turning right into the prison, passing lane on the left, the Quats filled the passing lane trying to cross the road!!!

Hope you heal up quick Superjuice. (you do look better than the CRF though)
You can always rinse the surface
but the stain will remain.

One of the benefits of a GPS i believe. You ca see the side roads and make yourself aware.

Thanks for the well wishes all.

I'm doing better, able to hobble around currently. The laceration is healing well and the staples will come out tomorrow or Thursday. My knee and shoulder are the problems at the moment, with me not being able to lift my left arm high and my right knee is still pretty swollen and I can't move it much without a lot of pain. I think physio is in order but will have to see.

Having replayed the accident countless times in my head, I figured out how it happened, although my memory of it is pretty good I couldn't figure out how my leg got cut until I worked it out.

Basically the car smacked the rear right hand side of the bike and this caused the bike to pivot over and sent the right footpeg straight into my leg at the same time sending me up and over the car. Which looking back is probably the best outcome I could have wished for as if it hadn't I would have either smacked into the car or the car's windscreen.

I didn't see the car until I was crossing the road and when I did I gassed it as much as I could. I shudder to think what the outcome would have been had I not seen it and gassed it, I'm pretty sure I would have lost my leg had I not.

Here's a pic of my leg for those that asked:



PS: My smile in that pic of me in hospital is thanks to Morphine (in the ambulance) and Pethadine.  :lol:

Eish ...

 :(

Glad you are Ok.

Amazing.

It's also frightening if you think about what could have happened.

A lifetime of safe riding and then one moment of not concentrating/error in judgment and *wham*...


Get well soon.
