    A good friend of mine that I met here is in a coma in the PA in Brissy. He is a truck driver. Glenn followed my travels around Oz and gave me a place to stay on my way back to Qld. He has the most lovely family. We have become great mates and his son Jacob bought my DR. But a week ago he had an accident and has been in a coma this last week. Not sure of his Adv name anymore. But if you know Glenn please give him a thought or a prayer.

    Big Fella? He had a place and a KTM parked in Asia.

    That’s sad to hear. All the best for a full recovery for the big fella and best to family and friends.

    Very sad to hear... bigfella44 , I had some pm’s with Glenn some years ago
    edit: Talked to one of Glenn’s old riding mates today (tsubject of the pm’s ) and he informed me that Glenn has had surgery and his injuries are still life threatening :( hopefully better news will come soon.

    We heard from a fellow truck driver who has been visiting a lot, even though he can't see Glenn. They are trying to get him out of the induced coma and so far it looks hopeful. When I get to go visit him awake I will pass on your good wishes. All I can think is that he will be awake soon.

    Heard more on Glenn. He had a successful op yesterday and is responding more to touch. In all it seems positive.
