    I facilitate these with Frank Pons a few times a year down here and been happening for the last 10 years now. Its next on again in April 19/20/21. I'm hopefully not out of order posting this here, but if you want to know more, PM me. Used to be enduro focused, but its expanded now to ADV type stuff too. Frank is magic with the shims.

    Yesterday I was teken out by a woman running a red light. A small bit of luck was that I had turned the corner and was going the same direction as her so lessened the impact but I've still got a couple of broken ribs and assorted spains and bruising on my right hand side, Depite rolling a fair bit nil damage to my ledf hand side or head.

    Another bit of luck was there were several people witnessed the car going thu on the red (after the cross lights had turned green) and gave statments to the police .

    The bike (a kl250 I brought for the kids to learn on only a couple of weeks ago) seems to have come through in far better condition than me.

    So despite rally looking forward to the Cold Flane this coming weekend I'll be at home mending, and for a few weekends there-after :cry:cry:cry and it may be a close call for the Autumn leaf.

    But considering the type of accident I've actually come away in fairly good nick if painfull - Such is life.

    For the next week or so no-one post any good jokes - laughing is bloody agony with broken ribs.

    Finally I hate Canberra diver and their attitude to traffic lights, Green go through, amber -same as green, red accelerate and try and get through befiore the crass traffic starts moving.

    Anyway I've had my winge all who are going to the Cold flame have a great weekend.
