Slegte nuus. RIP

Laat ons leer hieruit. Moenie alleen in die onbekende in ry nie. As hy n buddie saam met hom
gehad het was hy nog met ons.

Jammer, ek stem nie saam nie. Daar is sommige van ons wat 'n solo rit vir niks anders sal verruil nie.

I'm with you Sprocketbek. Solo can be magic. By using common sense and widening your safety margins by another 10% or so, you can limit your risks to acceptable levels. RIP Tim.

  • Reality is for people who lack imagination...
For some it's a choice to ride solo, for some there is no choice...

Sad to hear. I'll keep Tim's family in thought an prayer.
Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.
