The snoozer in the shop has his card for emergencies but had no credit left on it (read into this as to why the fuel supplier doesn't supply him anymore and put in their own card reader).

A nice local little old lady help these blokes out by using her card and they paid her cash.

Pass it on.
Thanks for that Kipo. In an emergency Hunt (?? I think) Fuel in Booleroo have a self service facility that takes Visa etc.

Thanks for the thought but I'm still unable to lay down and sleep have to prop myself up in a chair [/QUOTE]

Nothing wrong with sleeping in a chair, I can highly recommend it

Hope you get well soon Brett, Slatts and I will miss your help fixing flats on the PAR.

Cheers, Kipo

Thanks Kipo.

I'm pissed at not being able to make the classic, and concerned with what to do with the DRZ, just put a safari tank on it too, not sure if I'm going to sell it or not.
Don't want to but I'm going to have to be supper careful with this shoulder from now on. May have to limit myself to adventure type riding rather than the more radical stuff.
Guess it depends on how well it knits together in the long run, only time will tell.
I'll sure be thinking of you all, have a fun and safe Classic.

At the classic is fine for me, cheers Trev!

Don't sell anything yet, wait until the dust settles.
When you're feeling better things will look different.

As some of the injury is four years old I'm wrapped in cotton wool to allow it to heal properly, if I tare it it's not repairable, so have to be a good boy for quite some time yet. Doc says no work for up to 8 months!

Of course after a suitable time "quiet adventure riding" would be excellent physiotherapy.
Take it easy Brett, real shame that you cannot make it along this year (who is going to wear the funny hat at The Classic in 2013 ?).

Anyway get well quick mate & looking forward to catching up for a ride later this year.

Cheers, Sol..

Meet @ Kersbrook Servo 8:15am for 8:30am this Sunday & ride the back way up & do some of Sol's tracks back maybe. See ya there.

Not sure at this stage Pete if I can make it or not.

The 690 will be in Kessners getting serviced & ready for the Flinders Classic, will send you a text if I can be there Sunday.

We took the yammy for a spin today. It was a really low tide so Matty tried to top up Boston Bay.



I had a smorgasbord.. one razorfish, one cockle and one mussel
