Sheeeeeez


I can already hear what Trailrider will say about this ...

Will BMW pay out though ?

Did they say anything about the ABS and what they think might have happened ?

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

Did it do the same thing again on our trip the rest of the weekend or since ?
If it was me I wouldn't have trusted the ABS again offroad without having it checked out...

Sorry TR....

on the topic of videos..... I promised to put this one up of Trailriders wipe-out at Moordkuil. For those who don't recognise the spot - which you will probably never be able to do as it looks completely different now! It's basically the first "driffie" you come down to after  Bottlierskop Game reserve and just as you start climbing up to the beautiful Moordkuil viewpoint -

see pictures to refresh the grey matter:





Now for the video ;D  ;D :
