    Just heard and saw from my friend Jaryd Bekker that he came down last night at 7pm.

    A cagedecid ed to turn without looking and my friend smacke dsmacked into tthe side of him. He sumasaulted over the handlebars and landed on his back going at 60. Was out for 5 min but came to. Luckily only bruises and no broken bones.

    Will find out where it was and yes I did get the course list

    Gonna save up some bux in the next few months and try it out when I get a day off or some good leave. really keen to learn slow skills and how to manever through corners.

    Hi jack on:
    Another one of my friends had a spill on friday also on a big boy like mine, but saw him on sunday afternoon with his bike basically rebuilt just missing mirrors and indicators(all pirate parts) but he seemed good so I didnt really ask too much about his off

    Seems too many youngsters are coming off in east london lately, atleast nothing too fatal

    I've got a few guys looking at doing short courses over this weekend (2 hours etc), so let me know if you're keen.

    As for the youngsters coming off? Lots of new scoots and bikes on the road lately: I know because the guys have been telling me, plus have been informing new punters about training. Can't say many people down here take the idea of rider training seriously though.

    1+1=2.

    would love to take you up on the offer but with the money I just injected into the FJ I will have to be spending my salary on noodles and eating only every second night, plus with my girlfriend losing her job I get 600 less income(she has a cellphone and stuff under my name) so the next 2 months I have to scrape through

    By June I should be on my feet again and having more cash on hand, til then I have time to make up my mind on what I really want to try first

    Hoping to get some proper cornering skills in and then try practise them at one of the track days

    Agree on the influx of new bikes on the road, especially the big boys, I counted 7 yellow ones on my way to work this morning. Agree with what you say about people not thinking training is neccassary. I never used to think it was. and the more I ride my FJ I see how lacking in skill I really am

    Hope he got himself checked out medically, the fact that he was out for 5 minutes doesn't sound good. Also hope he replaces his helmet, that must have been quite an impact.
