    Default IAN Blue GS1200 N1S @ Old Johannesburg offramp 20/04/2012

    Ian is very VERY VERY LUCKY
    Traffic came to a standstill and cars swerved to avoid an accident and a merc ended up infront of IAN. Ian hit the right rear of the cage with the GS's pod and ripped the bumper off, Went over on the other side and skidded for a few meters. Both sides of the bike is damaged badly (Mostly engine).

    Ian was wearing offroad BOOTS, and a jacket as protective gear.....
    No real roasties with the exception of his knee and even that is not so bad. just some minor bruising to his left hand also
    Picked up the bike dropped it of at his house.
    He started complaining about his back, Advised him to go see a doctor.


    All the best with the recovery IAN!!

    Strongs Ian. Rode passed the scene - two other bikers already stopped - hooted for a heads up - all seemed to have been sorted.

    Spent my therapy money on a K1200S
    Therapy must have worked, bought a GS
    Insanity crept back in, in the shape of an R1200R

    Just an update on Ian.

    He has been admitted to Unitas with internal bleeding. My brother is in contact with his ex-wife Zandre and we will keep everyone updated.

    Please keep him in your thoughts
