You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

This year's crash was really scary and I am pissed I was forced to DNF.
However I try to make a point of finishing everything I start.

Pretty scary to watch as well Rossco.

I am a maybe for 2012. Liked the ride out but the trip back was a bit tedious.

Wanna have a face-off? Who had the most tedious trip back?

Good to meet you out there Tom.

I believe your trip back started with a tow. Are we allowed to ask what happened or will we find out by other means? I hope you haven't just got back.

The short story:
* Towed 100km back to Bourke (thanks to Mick Crutch)
* Overnight in Bourke
* No trains, buses or hire cars out of Bourke
* Jumped a truck to Penrith (eight hours of Slim Dusty and roll-your-own durries in the cabin)
* Jumped a train at Penrith at around 11.00pm
* XPT sold out, so trained to the airport
* Arrived at the airport in time to find T2 and T3 closed
* Arrived in time to have the railway station closed behind me. Was trapped in the concrete access tunnel at just after midnight
* Bunked down on the concrete to try and get some sleep
* Chucked out by a huge Maori security guard with KTM 690s on his charm bracelet
* Bunked down on a bench in a bus shelter in the rain outside T2 waiting for the airport to open
* Roused awake with a gentle prod of a truncheon by the Federal Police and told to move on at around 2.00am
* Into the terminal at 4.30am to find the first available flight was at 2.30pm.

The whole time in the riding gear and boots I was wearing when I left Sawtell Headland. I had a single spare of jocks, a T-shirt and a toothbrush. The tools and Mojave bag were soaked in fuel, so I jammed it all in a chicken-feed bag, tied the top off with a strand of venetian-blind chord I found, and checked it through hoping no-one would notice the toxic fumes seeping from the top. The airlines took it, thank Dog.

Home on Friday.

Bike's still out there.
