Hope Bygdaddee heals fast. Looks like it was a great weekend (other than the mishap), dissappointed I couldn't make it.

Sean-0, who'd you steal the jacket from?

Just rolled in the door about half hour ago, 745 klm door to door.

Credit to Paul who was extremely calm during the whole proccess, heal well mate, we will be back down there for sure. Seano and Nikki did a great job looking after him, I was all done when the knee wound became evident that was nasty.

On a brighter note, we had an awsome weekend with a great bunch of guys and girls and I can't wait to get back down to that part of the world, absolutely awsome.

PS the Drake hotel was fantastic and the owners were very accomodating. I can highly recommend.

He did well mate, didn't even fall off I don't think. The 700 TA performed faultlessly.

I just got Pauls message. He seems cheery enough.
I'm in Kingscliff for a few days R&R so if he needs anything all someone has to do is yell. 0403 286 271

I hope his arm isn't as bad as mine was. Wouldn't wish that on anyone. I'll have to point him to the "Heavy Metal" thread now he's a member.

Baric dropped the bike at my place as I am not far from Paul's, happy for you guys to get the rest of his stuff to my place at Bald hills or drop of at my work at the Airport or something in between, so I can get it all together in one spot for Paul.
Having a looksee tonight and chat to Paul about the best way to go, insurance or home repair, as I have a lot of the original stuff from mine, will see what it looks like, I have had a few insurance claims myself, so I know the drill.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Ok now that I got that out, totally agree with you on the spirit of this community there really is a great bunch of people in here that genuinely care.

If you were on the DRZ the repair bill would have been cheaper
