  2. So, the sun is shining at 7:30am... well, not quite... but there's very little fog (unless it rolls in later this morning); which means a fine day. Looks like a great day for a ride. See you all at the Servo for meet-up & departure (y)

  3. Epic fail !!! :( Well, we were enjoying a really great ride. I pushed myself a bit harder around the twisties (& loving it).... well, pushed a little too hard in one spot & .... slide, skid, crash, bang, wallop - down the embankment. Thanks goodness for wearing the correct gear.

    New mother's day helmet - trashed ! Jacket, pants & boots - trashed ! Bike - pretty sure it's trashed too ! Dr: "think you have a small fracture of a rib on the left - bit hard to tell". Me - ouch, but walking & talking. Survived to tell the tale !

    There were heaps of people who stopped & offered a helping hand - love country folk. 5 guys stopped & helped pull my bike up from embankment from the bush. 2 gave me a lift back to the lookout nearby - out of further harm's way & stayed to make sure I was ok. A passerby nurse stopped & checked me out before the ambo came. Cops & Ambos were all fantastic. Wish I'd got their names - thanks heaps - wherever & whoever you are !
