Here's a pic that Rob sent me in a PM so I thought I'd do the right thing and show the world
Things are not as they appear....
You crack me up!
Queensland Bottle Trees. There're some nice ones close by at Goomeri too. PM if you're interested in directions.
You funny man Dusty!
Rob, that bruise looks painful, must take your mind off of your elbow for now.
Good luck with the operation tomorrow.
If thats what its like up there imagine what the forearm is like. It was that colour on saturday. Not sure if i want to see it or not.
Get well soon. That headlight has a solid gold lining by the way. Cha ching!
Next time, get a white Tiger, they're the least likely to lie down and they go faster too.
And this fine example of a "Jimnafourexus" Bottle Tree can be found here

Good ride reports guys, looks like a good ride
This is from Rob today after his operation.
"Home now. Reality was even worse again. More broken bits and about 90% of
the soft tissue was torn from the bones as well. I saw the "after" xrays
this morning. There is a LOT of snazzy looking hardware in there. I took
them 5 hrs to do the op.
Spent the night in ICU as I apparently had bruised lungs too and my blood
ox levels were a bit low. It was a pretty rough night but I eventually
woke up good this morning.
They sent me up to the ward around 9. Spent the day recovering there any
getting a bit more rest.
I currently don't have a lot of feeling in my hand due to the swelling etc
but that should be good in a day or so.
In the cast for about 2 weeks then a brace for about another 4-6 weeks. A
lot of physio to come. Doc says I should get approx 80-90% full range of
movement back. 100% sounds better to me."
Will talk to you tomorrow.
Damn, sounds pretty rough; here's hoping you get that 100% back.
Scenery out there looks stunning though; will have to tour Australia one of these days. Thanks for sharing.

It will all come good with time and care.
Main range of motion they work so im told is table to mouth

To be continued
Ouch!! my wrist looked like that a long time ago, not off falling off a bike though, cant move my hand up higher than about 50 degrees now.
Looked like a nice ride out though
Seeing as it's a damp day I'd thought I'd add a couple of more pics.
We ran into this bloke at Gayndah. He's been round a bit apparently
The pool table was really slow and it was like trying to push a ball a wool along velcro
Kept the crowd entertained
The new publicans Mark & Trish were great and at $35 per bed with a cooked breakfast what more could you want
We'll definitely be back there for "Rob's Recovery Ride"
ps. Hey Rumble where's the pic of us enjoying Rob's shout at the bar ?
Don't know, maybe to drank to remember Did notice that I was in all of the last pic's you put up You have something to tell me Dusty.
I broke my elbow same exact spot. They put a screw in. I too fell off my motorcycle.
Attaboy , Rumble, a few slugs on that Wild Turkey bottle and you are always in the thick of all the action !!
Yeah.........stop hoggin' the limelight
