To the braaf deadhead...

Sunday, +- 09:30 Comming from Sun-City to Hartbeespoortdam, Sprite splash, Reg SHD ??? in a white bakkie... (I'm not going to name the make)

I hope you get to read this....

I clocked you on the N4 T at 150..... You think that's clever....

'Till it all goes wrong...

You, holding your steering wheel, with one hand ever so casually wiht your elbow on the window ledge.... You think your'e so cool....  

'Till it all goes wrong...

You think your'e "just the man" .... 

'Till it all goes wrong...

Get this. Youre' neither cool, or "the man", in fact, your'e neither a good husband or, from the bicycles on the back, a good father... Your wife and children look to you to do the right thing... They know no better, they take from your leadership, and think it's the right thing to tow a van, nose up at 150 Km's..

'Till it all goes horribly wrong...

And you're standing at your wife or childs graveside....

And it's gone horribly wrong..

Still think your'e cool?

Slightly quicker downhill....
These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

One het die naweek by Thaba Monate gekamp en oppad soontoe Vrydag het die wind erg gepla. Wonder wat se spoed het daai ou toe bestuur.

Jammer dat daar sulke onverantwoordelike mense op ons paaie is.

Totally irresponsibile!!!   The problem is het gets away with it because there is no more legal control and discipline on our roads.  He probably lost money at Sun City (and had one too many) and now everybody else must pay because he is in a bad mood.

Selfgesentreerde egoistiese blixem. Gewoonlik maak hulle nie die ongeluk nie, maar veroorsaak dit met onskuldiges as die lydende partye. Ek verwens jou nie, maar kom net tot jou sinne en raak verantwoordelik asseblief.

Eish manne en vroue, Jammer dat ek so gejaag het. Baie onverantwoordelik van my. Het nie eers op daardie staduim aan my vrou en kind(ers) gedink nie. Ook nie aan die wat lief is vir my nie. Nog minder aan my mede padgebruikers. Ek het geen verskoning nie. Sal dit beslis nooit weer doen nie!!!!

Dit is al wat die man sal kan se.

Best article I have read today. You get a thumbs up for this one.

3 weeks ago we were towing to Naboomspruit.  A VW Polo with a Venter trailer came past me at normal speed, I recon 120km/h. When passing me I heard this noise coming from the trailer left wheel and said to my wife "just know we will get them next to the road without a wheel" WRAGTAG, ......less than 1km in the right hand lane on the N1 between Polokwane and Mokopane, there stood the car with trucks and cars driving at high speed towards them. 

I stopped and helped. 5 Old ladies (very old) on their way for a weeks holiday. I got 4 of them out of the vehicle and told the driver " as ek se nou sit jy voet neer en ry met n mo@#×se spoed na die kant toe"

They were more worried about the wheel gone missing than their own safety in the middle of the road.

Biggest pity is that these bastards driving like you explained cannot read or write and obviously do not read or even know of this Forum.

The ones we get here are normally towing offroad trailers with either 3lt Hilux/Fortuners or Pajeros. With small kids STANDING on the back seats waving to us!

At last !!!!

ek kan nie glo mense sleep daardie spoed nie, soos genoem as iets verkeerd gaan is dit nag en te laat om te se jammer. Meskien moet mens die res van die besonderhede bekend maak sodat almal dit kan sien.

Dick, I didn't get much more... I was also doing 150........, and hey it's a Loaded Landy....laughing... Even though It's gat a BMW engine....tongue-out

I specially do not want to mention which make of bakkie, as that will detract form the point.... 

look, I was doing 120 when he came past...

I only matched his speed from behind @ 150.....

After a while he slowed down to take the Hartbeespoort off and I overtook, to get the rest....

If that idiot feels suicidal, he should go and play russian roulette. He has no right to endanger other road users (including his own family!). No one else wants to join him in his quest for a Darwin award.

On a lighter note; how accurate is the Landy's speedometer? This must be uncharted territory. To quote "IF YOU THINK THIS IS SLOW, JUST WAIT UNTIL WE GO UPHILL"

Warren, it must have been quite an experience for you getting the Landy to do 150km/h. I agree if it get to that speed you cannot look to obtain the other vehicle's particulars.  You must concentrate on your own capabilities because you might never experience it again with the Landy.

Haha Just joking!!laughing

Something for nothing... I'm back in a good mood...

Sitnie's definately masculine... Simply because, apart from a rural Russian peasant woman, I don't think anything feminine and alive can be quite so ugly...surprised and that includes anyone's mother-in-law's...sealed

So when that cantankerous heap of pop-rivitted scrap-iorn decides to get-up-and-go....

Like any seasoned drinker... Give him enough to drink and trust me, just about anything's possable...laughing

And by golly, can he go... When that rev counter hits 3000, and that Garret turbo is spinning at revolutions that approach light speeds, Its like a bleeding run-away-freight train...surprised

150 really ain't that much of a problem.... loaded or not... How the heck do you think I manage to get the wipers to settle at the bottom?..cool...

Those things (the windscreen wipers) have a mind of their own, they either swipe off the windscreen (and beyond the pillar) or only partially over the winscreen.. (so the "clear" bit is at the bottom, and I've got to duck down and look through the steering wheel to get some kind of idea where the heck I'm going.... Makes no darn difference anyway, they don't actually do much in the way of wiping clean...Do a darn good job of "smearing" though...

Anyhow, enough of the windscreen wipers...

What really bug's me though,  is the 3 + 1/2 turns free-play on the steering, (that can be quite a bit of fun)

The oil spots on the windscreen that magically appear out of nowhere, (that no-way-in-hell can the winscreen wipers clean, because at those speeds, and with that flat winscreen, the wind pressure's just too much, so they just do what every loyal British worker does... They simply go on strike....)

And lastly, the really HUGE 4 mile long cloud of diesiel smog from all the gunk that's built up in his poepenschuts)....

Now I'm going home....

In my son's car....

Which rattles and squeaks worse than Sitnie...

Cause he modified it.... Sigh.....

a 2L enjine in a 13000 body????

Slightly quicker downhill....
These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

Stays scary my question is always what if something goes wrong? All of us think we are good drivers but how many time where we physical in a situation where something went wrong? No two incidents are ever the same so I can’t even say “ it happened to me before” so many conditions can change that influence the situation, bottom line drive the recommended speed when towing and be on the safe side.

Ty, You be soooooooo right….

Especially at my age, where anything over 60Km is downright suicidal..

That’s why I bought a Landy… and being used to low range I just keep pedel to the metal

The instigator is my son, (who get’s the bleeding lot when I pop-off, and sadly I'm worth a heck of a lot more dead than alive....)

He jolly well keeps taking the darn thing out of low-range…

Probleem is die karre raak al hoe vinniger en sterker. Almal sleep vinnig en dink dit is reg dan gebeur daar n ongeluk en almal blameer die feit dat daar nie stabaliseerder was en die wind en wat nog. Punt is karavane nie gebou om teen daai spoed gesleep te word. Selfs in engeland waar daar stability control op die waens is word die spoed beperk tot 80 km/h.

Came down to Scotties on Saturday, kept my usual speed of 105, sometimes 110, but a number of 'vanners came past me making me feel like I'm looking for parking. One chap had his bakkie towing a smallish Jurgens (think it was an Expo, just smaller than the Fleetline) and seems to be happy having this van doing the side to side jive all over the place. Was happy to see him disappear in the distance....

By the way the new Ranger tows my Fleetline like a real bulletjie! The Territory was a good tow vehicle but man this new trokkie is something else :-)

Spoed maak nie dood nie, maar onnosel dinge wat mense aanvang. Ek stem dat die spoed met n karavaan stadiger moet wees, maar teen 100kmpu kan dinge ook sleg skeef loop.
Wees maar altyd op jou hoede vir daai outjie wat se verstand in sy gaai sit.
Do it now or leave it.

Vergeleke met die Territory is die brandstofverbruik te wonderlik vir woorde, het in die omgewing van 11.2l/100km gekry tussen Pta en Harrismnith (seker dan ook meestal platterig met min steiltes), het volgemaak in Harrismith en in Scotties aangekom met iets tussen 3/4 en 1/2 oor in die tenk, nog nie weer hier volgemaak nie maar sal more en dan dalk 'n beter idee kry (met daai kwaai steilte net voor Marian Hill as mens afkom ingesluit). In vergelyking die Terri het sowat 18l/100kmn gegee (beste ooit laas jaar was 15.5 maar ek het toe vrek mooi bestuur), my destydse Cherokee 2.8CRD het met dieselfde wa en pad altyd in die omgewing van 13l/100km gegee, so ek dink die Fordjie doen nie sleg nie, en behoort beter te raak soos die kilo's meer word (slegs sowat 2300 op die klok tans)...

En o ja. Daai Fordjie weet skaars van die Fleetline agter hom, voel my baie stabiel, selfs met die redelike erge wind wat ons tussen Villiers en Harrismith gehad het en baie trokke op die pad. Gebruik wel steeds die Tando al het die trokkie stabiliteits beheer.

lyk my die manne het 'n probleem met spoed, ek glo jy kan enige dofkop kry al ry hy/sy teen 50kmpu. My spoed as die pad dit tolaat en goeie daglig so 100 tot 110kmpu
maar as omstandihede verander af na so 80.

Dis nie die spoed wat doodmaak nie, dis die skielike stop.
Daar is nou maar net diegene wie nie 'n bloue duit omgee vir hulle familie of ander nie. Ek steun die gedagte dat hulle gegewens bekend gemaak moet word, nie net vir swak gedrag op die pad nie maar ook vir swak gedrag in karavaankampe - ek is seker daar is 'n draadjie wat die swak kampmaniere Koppel aan die swak padmaniere.

What an idiot, I think there should be a name and shame thread for idiots like that. People like that are the reason I have a dash cam in my car. I post their videos on you tube on purpose. I have a lost a family memeber to people driving like this so I know the damage it does. Imagine what that speed and load is doing to the caravans wheel bearings??????? They are no designed to operate under those conditions????? Makes me sick man!
