Close Encounter

 So this morning was the 1st time in months that I decided to ride with my DRIFT helmet-cam to record my daily commute on the bike. Since I became a father just over a year ago I drastically adjusted my riding style, sticking to the speed limit and not taking the crazy chances I use to.

Riding casually to work this morning at 06:30, I had a chat with the Lord to simply thank Him for all our blessing. As I shifted the gears downward to stop at the traffic light, I came to a roll-stop behind a C-class Mercedes. Letting my mind wander towards the “nothing box” to simply clear my mind before work (while maintaining focus on the road off-cause), I became very aware of the clear voice that told me to keep on rolling and move from behind the Merc to stop next to it to wait for the traffic light to turn green.

All of a sudden I heard a loud smashing noise and saw the Merc launch forward. I immediately looked in my rear view mirror and saw that a truck smashed into the back of the Merc…and I got it all on video(talk about scary). I knew then that the voice I heard was God using the Holy Spirit to speak to me, and He kept my safe. It could have been a horrific accident if I was sandwiched between the truck and the Merc. I am not a panel beater But I reckon the Merc is a right-off. Never under estimate the power of those short prayer where we ask God to keep us safe on the roads. He kept me & my BMW R1150GS safe, to continue to ride for Him.

Wow…God is good!!!

Their vision is to reach one of the most unreached people groups on the planet-the motorcyclists or bikers as some call us. Motorcyclists are often labelled as rebels, nonconformists, lawless, dare devils and adventure seekers.

BROEDERSKAP IN TYE VAN NOOD

Na aanleiding van JC Botha se storie  (Oktober 2011) hiermee my storie van my noue ontkoming onlangs.

Ek  ry ‘n BMW K1200S, maar het onlangs vir my vrou ‘n BMW G650 X-Country gekoop sodat sy die lang pad op  haar eie ysterperd kan geniet. Ek het egter gereeld met dié 650 werk toe gery weens  sy uitmuntende petrol verbruik (24km/?). Op 4 Oktober  2011 was ek met die einste 650 in ‘n ongeluk
op die R21 naby Monumentpark en wat ‘n wonderwerk!!!    Ek het langs ‘n bakkie gery (40km/h in spits verkeer) toe dié ou besluit hy gaan van baan verwissel. Met dié wat die bakkie my raak, kom ‘n buddel-as Nissan trok aan my linkerkant verby. Skielik het ek nêrens om heen te gaan nie en die volgende oomblik is ek en die bike onder die trok. Ek het gedog “vandag is die dag…die einde” terwyl ek lanks die bike lê en hoor hoe die  trok se agterwiele die bike trap en ek my regmaak vir my beurt onder dié yslike wiele.

Toe ek  weer sien, lê  ek en die bike agter die trok se ses agter wiele. Wonder bo wonder het die klomp wiele my gemis en tot vandag toe weet ek
nie hoe nie. Wonderwerk! Ek het opgestaan en die bike onder die trok uitgetrek en opgetel.  Skielik begin die verkeer opdam; ‘n motoris het sy motor dwars agter die trok gestop en uitspring om my te help. Heel toevallig is die ou een van ons vele biker-broers. Hy  het die nooddienste gebel en my in sy motor laat lê toe ek van allerhande pyne begin kla het. Die trokdrywer, so geskok soos hy was, was uiters behulpsaam.

Ek is uiteindelik in ‘n ambulaans  met suurstof en al na die hospitaal. Twee ure later is ek ontslaan met ‘n stukkende enkel en knie, en ‘n nekstut.
Onglobaar!  My vrou se 650 is uiteraard afgeskryf. As ek na die bike kyk en dit met my beserings vergelyk, is dit skrikwekkend én wonderbaarlik date k nie seerder gekry het of self dood is nie. Alle dank aan ons beskermer!

As jy nie
self ry nie is dit nie iets wat jy sal verstaan nie.

Wat vir my net so merkwaardig is, is die ondersteuning wat ek en my vrou na die tyd van motorfietsryers gekry het-broederskap. En dit is
hoekom  ek ‘n biker is. Dis ‘n leefstyl; ‘n eiesoortige kultuur. Dis asof daar ‘n ongeskrewe reël onderr alle bikers is:
“Moet nooit ‘n broer agterlaat nie”. Ek en my vrou ry vir een van die bekendste klubs in die land en elke lid van ons ‘chapter’ het  gebel, ‘n sms gestuur of kom kuier om te wys hulle gee om en ondersteun ons. Ander ‘chapters’ en klubs het ook hulle ondersteuning
getoon. Dis inderdaad ‘n riem onder die hart om te sien hoe bikers saam staan en mekaar op die hande dra…op die einde van die dag is ons almal dieselfde…
bikers en trots daarop!

TWO WHEELS FOR JUSTICE

More than a year ago two bikers

were killed and one seriously injured when a vehicle collided head-on with them. The vehicle was travelling totally on the wrong side of the road. On Saturday 2011-11-19 a well represented huge group of bikers gathered to require some answers from the authorities in this case.

Riviera on Vaal

I recently had the privilege on 3 and 4 November 2011 to stay at this beautiful place for a work related matter. It was a tremendous difficult matter to resolve. On the morning prior to dealing with the matter I prayed intensively and read Hebrews 13:5 from the amplified Bible. I can now only testify unconditionally that Jesus walked with me this day and did good to me beyond my dreams. It is indeed true that He will never, never forsake you. Thks Lord.
