Diesel spill !!

Diesel spill !! Empty Diesel spill !!

Post by Bear on 11th July 2008, 14:35

Well i became a diesel spill statistic today, on the Ben Schoeman towards pretoria taking the Krugersdorp off ramp, how ironic is this, on my way to the BMW riders proficiency course !!! Embarassed

I was taking the bend at about 100km and i felt the back wheel start to drift so pulled up and went straight, and on seeing the corner chevron sign heading straight for me i leant to the left and hit the sign with the right hand side of my ST and destroyed the fiaring and cracked the radiator tank neck. affraid

Fortunately i was not hurt at all and did not fall of at all, i limped to Jean avenue where i stopped and i phoned on call and Bavarian Motorcycles came and collected me...

Very shaken as this was my first accident..... Damm Exclamation

Does anybody know where i can get a hire bike until mine is fixed ??
