In a nutshell, I dodged a cow, hit loose gravel and fell off.

The bike has gone to the assessor today and I go to the surgeon tomorrow.

Ill get to that pub one day.

Mungungo might be the new Maidenwell..

Here's Brian doing some cow weaving but being an ex-dairy farmer he had no problem



These ones were way more rider friendly



No it wasn't the Haka it is Rumble doing his morning Tai Chi ...., I think it was called the yo yo but it didn't seem to impress Graham (unco).

G'day Joe, check out it out on the North Burnett Council Map. I'm sure you have the link.

You funny man Dusty!

Rob, that bruise looks painful, must take your mind off of your elbow for now.

Good luck with the operation tomorrow.

Get well soon. That headlight has a solid gold lining by the way. Cha ching!

Next time, get a white Tiger, they're the least likely to lie down and they go faster too.

This is from Rob today after his operation.


"Home now. Reality was even worse again. More broken bits and about 90% of
the soft tissue was torn from the bones as well. I saw the "after" xrays
this morning. There is a LOT of snazzy looking hardware in there. I took
them 5 hrs to do the op.
Spent the night in ICU as I apparently had bruised lungs too and my blood
ox levels were a bit low. It was a pretty rough night but I eventually
woke up good this morning.
They sent me up to the ward around 9. Spent the day recovering there any
getting a bit more rest.
I currently don't have a lot of feeling in my hand due to the swelling etc
but that should be good in a day or so.

In the cast for about 2 weeks then a brace for about another 4-6 weeks. A
lot of physio to come. Doc says I should get approx 80-90% full range of
movement back. 100% sounds better to me."

Will talk to you tomorrow.
