Heard that Bun took a tumble in Stellenbosch. A car crossed his path and he hit it on the side.
He wore atgat but suffered broken plevis and some hip injuries.
Hope he heals well as he edits a top magazine  :wink: Sterkte

Bad news, hope he told the car driver to F*K WEG!
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Damn, sorry to hear this. :?

Hope he gets better soon, and climbs back on the boney in no time.

Speedy recovery Bun :)

His bike is a write-off at 50km/h :shock:
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!

I wish you strength and patience with the recovery Bun.  :( Its amazing how easily they write a bike off. No wonder we pay so much for insurance.

p.s. How many of you insure your gear. I know this is not the tread for it and it has been discussed before but I wish I read it more seriously before my accident.

Two comments:

1: this is the crux of the matter:

Agter my vra ?n vrou: ?Where did he come from? I didn?t see him!?

Ek formuleer ?n antwoord in my kop, maar het nie die krag om te antwoord nie: ?Ek kom van die Strand se kant af, in my baan, met my lig aan, binne die spoedgrens...en jy het dwars voor my ingery.?


Nogtans sal almal dink hy't te vinnig gery net omdat hy 'n motorfiets ry.

2: The speedcop that wants to see his license. I tell you if it was me I would have had a case of 'minagting van die gereg' against me as I can think of a couple of choice words that I would have thrown his way ...



Just glad he's alright ...

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

that traffic cop really needs a klap on his head  :roll: it doesnt take long for some traffic cops to show just what a poepol he is

I hope Bun  :?: (would that be like a hamburger bun) is healing well
