Alle sterkte aan Jan en Suzette.
Ek gebruik ook Sir Lowrey's Pass elke dag. Die aantal ongelukke per maand op die pas is flippen baie. Die Mty waarvoor ek werk het in die laaste jare reeds drie mense aan ongelukke afgestaan en een is erg vermink. Dit is die gevaarlikste stuk pad wat ek ken.

Twee oorsake van ongelukke:
Vragmotors is vol diesel wanneer oppad Noord/OOs. Helling + skerp draaie veroorsaak tenk om "oor te loop"
Verder voertuie oppad af wat ander voertuie net "effens" raak en dan buite beheer tol en opkomende verkeer uithaal. Motorfietse het nie 'n kans.......
Dan praat ek nie eers van die S-Oos wat in bane waai..... My GS se agterwiel het ook al byna die voorwiel verby gegaan met so 'n vlaag wind. Ek hou nou maar die bome/bosse dop verder aan in die pad om wind "te sien waai". Probeer dan counter en spasie maak tussen ander verkeer!

Ok , here is an update from Jan on how Suzette is doing :

"Good morning to al my friends and work colegues, scuse the spelling. thanks for use amount of interest and support, I can report back, Suzette is slowly being taken out of the coma, the good news is that she squeezed both my hands when I spoke to her, so she is not paralyzed on the right side as first diagnosed, right ankle is cracked, not broken and right knee cap ligaments are torn away and not a crushed knee cap, I will take those odds any day, Stomach is responding to being tube fed through nose, Back at work, but mind drifting a little bit, but Im very positive that she will recover quickly and fully."

Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I pray that Suzette will heal 100 %.

Thanks a lot for the update. That really is Gr8 news to hear that she came out a hell of a lot better than first thought. :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Keep us posted.

Jan & Suzette our thoughts and prayers are with you .
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Things not going well.

Jan says that large part of Suzette's brain is not functioning. Basically she is dying.  Pls keep Jan and family in your thoughts and prayers.

Just saw another update from Jan on his FB page.:

"More vriende en familie. Ek was paar minute gelede by die hospitaal. Breinfunksie is baie min op die oomblik. Masjiene is afgeskakel en alles is nou in die hande van die Here. Ek is so dankbaar vir al die boodskappe en oproepe wat ek kry, maar dit maak die seer elke keer as ek die storie moet vertel groter. Ek sal elke paar uur 'n opdatering doen op Facebook sodat elkeen kan weet wat die vordering is. Almal is welkom om boodskappe te stuur, maar ek sal ongelukkig nie vir almal boodskappe kan terugstuur weens die groot hoeveelhede wat inkom nie. Ek is steeds dankbaar vir elkeen wat bemoedig en graag meer wil weet."
