Could the same be said after you used them?

You mean there is now a door on the men's toilet?

The grey grannies will be disappointed!

In 07 on the way to Coffs, we called in there in the pissing rain for a coffee and a top up, the bowsers were locked up, the old fella eventually came out, locked the shop, filled 1 bike then re-opened and took the money, he repeated this for all the bikes that needed fuel, need less to say, several of us decided not to re-fuel and just have something to eat. All the time the old fella was serving us he kept up a non stop tirade about dickhead fucking motorcyclists out in the rain.

Once in the shop 1 of the girls asked to use the toilet, his reply in his words, "there's 2 buildings here, the shop and the shitter, this is the bloody shop " the shitter was just that, I reckon that a building site porta loo looked like the crown casino toilets compared to that shitter.

I came back through there in 2010, the same grumpy prick was there with the same attitude, I didn't need fuel but did piss on his "for sale" sign out the front.

I don't understand why someone that has lost there enthusiasm for a customer based business would continue to work in the industry.


The place name is Emmdale.
This info above is well out of date NOW Bully1.
This establishment has been under new and very good management since November 2010 and has really become a worth while place to stop for a good meal, shelter from the elements or fuel. Note their fuel is supplied by the same mob that service Little Topar.

I remember well the old prick that was in the place from a trip in 09. We arrived as a mob of Variety Club Bashers turned up. The silly old bastard sold more fuel in those two hours than he had for years. And still cut crook. We too had scratched that place until a trip west in late 2010 ( I'm sure?).
I noticed a change one day and turned back for a look. The forecourt area out to the road was getting years of dirt and gravel cleared off it. New pumps for Diesel and the dunnys getting a do over. The dowsers are still locked but they are on hand when you pull up. I don't have a problem with that as its common practice in lots of out of the way places.
The owners have a steady turn over of backpackers...all capable cooks and very friendly. Many FarRider's now have this place in the log as a rest or fuel stop and we have on occasion been able to organize for fuel at very late/early hours without complaint.
I hope I've done my bit to correct some old info. No offence intended Bully1

Good to hear Emmdale has been sorted, when I worked at Cobar a few years back it was well known as a dont stop place by the locals

Hi Guy's,
Sorry to bring this back up but I called in there on the way home from the Alpine rally, same bloke is there so I asked him the same questions I asked last time.
How far to old Township? It's on the map in from of you.
Can you see the old town? They moved it.
What are these lures like? What do you want lures on a bike.
You don't like bikes? NO.
How's business? Slow

I then said to him: have a good look at that bike as you will never see it again

Pig of a man.

The other fuel station must love him as it was packed.

If he was a prick the last time, what made you go back again? Research?
The other folk DESERVE your business, this old mat-muncher doesn't.

Yep that's my fault.

Ever since my first encounter with him, I make sure to stop every time I pass through.

I've usually filled in cooma, so I buy about 2L of petrol, use all his water cans to wash my windscreen, lube my chain over his hardstand, dump my rubbish in his bins and then take off.

Nah, that'd be rude. It's only funny because at any other servo they wouldn't care, but it drives him up the wall.

I pulled in there for research, thought it may have been a "one off" and got him on a bad day.

Got to give everyone a second go
