    So the “ring of steel” has been lifted. Thinking of a base camp in the Buckland at the end of Nov if anyone is interested. If anyone wants to ride there and need some supplies i can do a buy ie food booze. Swags or tents also. Im hobbling around unassisted ATM so by then i should be pretty well dancing only i wont be riding. Ill take a bike or two in to look at!

    Best i could muster up was a ride in the paddock. Fuck that was good. Ran outta time. Issues with the bore pump and we are almost out of water. I’ll have to work on that in the morn. Hoping to get a ride in over to Eldorado for a couple of pints tomorrow arvo.

    How was the ride? I can ride better than I can walk!

    Third screw backing out. Loctite fellas Loctite!

    Loctite would be good... but I'd be more concerned with that spare M6x120 bolt that the sloppy mechanic left in your lower abdomen Al... :eekers

    and not to pry... but why is there a magnifying glass hovering over ya' ball sack...? :eek7

    ... I thought you rode Husabergs...? :lol2

    I spose an empty patient is a good opportunity to drop some unneeded bits in. Saves on tip fees.

    Thats not my ball sack, thats my wozza!

    Wow... ! :eek7 that's some serious hardware you are packing there... :eekers (and no Al - I'm not looking at your wozza* mate! :rofl ).

    I bet you can feel that lot of those cold alpine winter mornigs at times... I am not surprised you experience some aches and pains champ. The tough old codgers of ADVRider Ozsylum "we wear the limp with honour" :beer

    * FWIW; unless I failed anatomy 101 at school, or you've suffered another unspeakable injury we can't talk about - ya' ballsack should be somewhere @bout the same spot mate... or was it reeeeally cold that day...? :dunno :lol3

    Ride wasn't anything special 180ks of loose gravel .but after an hour of riding the loose stuff just wanted to keep riding for the rest of the day.
    Unfortunately the road ran out and was back to the tar.:(

    After looking at your X-ray
    Remind me not to go gold detecting with you.

    I just dont learn. At my age and all my injuries I should be happy to park the dirt bikes up, yet i cant wait to be back out on them. :loco

    Troy, the ball sack is too big to see the outline. I was trying to avoid skiting mate!

    When the foot was full of titanium it would send the detector off. The broken screw left in there barely causes a sound now.

    mate once you get back on your feet, if the misses suggests she knows a way you can get back up there and finish the job safely and it looks anything like this, get the hell out of there
