  1. Hello netriders..
    Just a reminder.. and a plea...

    Confidentiality in mind.. I work at an emergency center in SA.. and dealt with another goose that came off a nice bike.. big bike, wearing a tshirt and sneakers...

    There is more red than ... don't know.. you get the picture.. shoulders, back, his toes...FFS man.. this guy is in PAIN+++!!

    Couple of weeks ago.. another one wearing a singlet.. his back was.. simply f****d.

    Just before that one, another one with open face helmet, jeans and tshirt, no gloves.

    There was a tooth embedded in his lip, a deep gash across his face, below the nose (right through to the teeth), no skin in the hands, his knee was chipped, elbows and shoulder like strips of red bacon..

    If he had a jacket, gloves a full face helmet and kneepads, he would have just stood up and be sore..
    Now its full on plastic surgery, orthopedics to fix the knee, and more plastcs for the hand..
    It hurts, boys and girls. Lots.

    Lads and ladettes.. if its hot.. wear a summer mesh jacket, wear riding boots, steel caps, but not cool little sneakers that go flying if you just look at them wrong..


    Sorry, it just annoys me, it sucks to fall off, we are riders, of course no one wants it to happen, no one is out to get hurt, but these guys are dropping like flies, getting really hurt, out of relatively minor falls..

    Peace, have a safe ride...

    Bet they out weigh the Atgatt missing riders,

  18. Thats different, the only reason that's so popular is because the girls are hot and we don't play pro ice hockey here!
