    I've tried to copy and paste but half the story is missing and there are some gruesome photos of the injury but essentially it was a hit and run last Sunday.
    I've managed to copy the text below......................


    Please share the post, I was involved in a hit and run accident earlier while riding my motorcycle in strath/meadows. It was a black/grey BMW that headed straight for me and side swiped me then took off, I have severe tendon damage and not too sure how bad it is as of yet. Please share. It's a 2013 lorenzo respol so the paint will stand out like dogs balls on a black BMW. Either forward it's rego to the police and or me directly. Christies beach 5165 **edit (wed june 19)I've had someone come forward with cctv of a bmw with orange and red paint up the side, but barley a partial plate. I am due for my second surgery tomorrow snd just want to thank you all for your sharing and support. Looks like I WILL be walking away from this one... I'm sure they will be found, to my knowledge it was a black sedan and a series 2 or 3...with tinted windows, i can forgive and forget,just please man up and come forward. Thank you**

    Couple of pics from a "Lap of Yorkes" a couple of weeks back. Took the old coast road and sections of the "Walk the Yorkes Trail" on which some sections are for shared use, brilliant! It is mostly twin track in reasonable condition but with some short sections of sand and beach riding included, an easy ride. I spent a night at Coobowie caravan park, and one night at Wallaroo, allowing plenty of time for exploring the small tracks and Innes National Park, (permits required) along the way.

    Lookout near Port Vincent, (must do something about that front tyre).

    Port Vincent Marina great weather, but very cold, had the thermals and liners on and in.

    Big fans, (must get hot here in summer) down Edithburgh way, following the Clan Ranald road hugging the coast.

    Great coastal scenery and riding for a short getaway from Adelbraine. Right in our own back yard, handy for a quick riding fix when time doesn't allow the longer escape! :rayof

    Do we have a whatsapp group or a meetup place or anything like this? Would love to get out in weekends, if there's something organized.

    It was raining lightly and fecken cold! not great riding weather but I also wanted to test out the new Moose mittens. They work.
    I headed up to Gawler and took to the dirt roads, Winton Rd was slippery as, lucky the D606 still had plenty of tread. Across to Greenock and up to Truro, out Frankton Rd then through Levi Creek and out to the flat country. The rain finally stopped so I stopped for some bladder relief. Bit further on I stopped at a small dry creek on Fauna Rd where the 24hr ran through in the last 24 hrs but it was all quiet now. There was a small fire still burning so I warmed up and had a Cherry Ripe for lunch. Had plans to do more exploration but all the Dry Weather Only tracks looked really hairy so I gave it a miss. Started heading back, headed towards Kapunda it looked like into more rain, but it stayed dry all the way home. Good little ride.

    I reckon you would be by now, Keasy. Great photo that one. And love the umbrella photo. I should be finished my cancer treatment by then, so hopefully we can catch up. You can teach me how to ride again.
