    Announcement Fallen Bikers

    Since getting my bike and joining TB the one thread I always come back to is this one.. it is the one I always read I may not always reply to all the posts regarding the Fallen Bikers not always knowing what to say.

    I've kept thinking about how we can show just how much these Fallen Bikers ment to us and everyone else in their lives.

    Then this morning while reading the thread regarding the wall of rememberance page, it hit me, there are various sites with various posts and pages regarding our brothers and sisters that have fallen.

    But have as yet not found a site dedicated just to Fallen Bikers, so being who I am I went ahead and created a site.

    www.fallenbikers.co.za

    Obviously this site will be meaningless without the inputs from not only the TB members but from the public in general.

    So I request that the members of this forum please go have a look at the site, and give me any and all feedback whether positive or negative regarding the above site.

    I have already spoken to RoseThorn who is busy assisting with the list of fallen bikers, and she will provide me with this list once it has been compiled and it will be incorporated into Fallen Bikers.

    Oh and for the IT Gurus out there take note I'm not an IT Guru, but merely someone who loves creating basic websites etc.. so if there is anyone who can improve on this design feel free to contact me aswell.

    Very nice .....
    We are going to need to work on the pics as we only have names of the past fallen bikers but going forward should not be a problem ....

    Thanks RT took the images idea from most of the other international websites that have sites similar to this. Agree one will not always have the photos, but one of the reasons why I thought it better to have it not only as a TB page.

    And just because we don't have the photos doesn't mean I don't have a solution for that problem

    Thanx nunique... very noble...

    I was driving along Giel Basson yesterday afternoon when I passed a bike parked on the side of the road.
    The rider was sitting on his helmet right in front of a cross that had been previously planted in the grass.
    What a profound effect this image had on me when I retired later that evening,
    I awoke this morning with that image still in my mind.
    Lost it down the highway.
    Down the dotted line.
    You were going your way.
    I was going mine.

    Can imagine that that image stuck with you...

    I received an email from a friend of the mother who lost both her children as a result of an accident, she actually forwarded the email she had received - and it still breaks my heart reading it...

    WOW Nunique...wat 'n "awesome" idee...die "site" is fantasties. Ek het vandag op www.sascooters.co.za gelees van 'n ou wat hier in die Wes Kaap 'n swart OPC Opel (dan gee hulle sy registrasienommer, van en adres) ry en prontuit sÍ hy is hier om bikers van die pad af te ry om ons van veiligheid te leer. Kan jy dit glo??? Hy kan die oorsaak wees dat ons mense se naam op jou website kan verskyn en dan spog hy daarmee...die arrogansie!!!
    Voorspoed met die "site"...dis 'n wonderlike idee!!
    Eet jou poeding 1ste!!! :thumbup:

    Hmmmm I think I'll refrain from commenting on what he has said as this is an open forum but guys like this should be given a bloody wake up call.

    They have not needed to look into someones eyes who has lost a loved one, because if he had he would change his point of view.

    Nice job, Nunique.

    One way to get the word out is to contact the various Club Leaders Associations / Presidents' Councils though that'll only get the names of club members.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

    Hi Banditman,

    Thanks - I need to get a contact list of the clubs first but am working on that at the moment for now am doing it word of mouth.
