    • Thanks again for the concern and good wishes folks.

      Well, I had my first little drive of the car this week. Didn't go so good, had to hand it over to Jo after only a few klms. But still, it's a start.

      Really hope to be able to ride again in perhaps February.
      But it will be a very different kind of ride for me from now on.
      It's a lesson hard learned, that the things we take for granted can so easily be stripped from us.

      I think it will be hard to let go of my caution in the future, so next year's thread may need to be titled 'Strumms lame rides for 2014!'

      Still, however it goes, I really hope that Jo and I get to at least catch up with some of you for a short ride during the year.

      All our riding buddies are what has made this such an amazing journey for us.
      If not for your friendship and support, we would have just been out for a few rides.
      Instead we have made great connections with some fab people and enjoyed amazing muddy adventures too!

      I hope all of you have a great xmas break and take care of yourselves and eachother.

      If anyone manages a ride down Teewah beach, spray a little sand on my behalf (damn, can't get that ride out of my head, sooo good!).

      Stay safe, and sign Mr Bergman's petition if you can. It's really worth while.

      Cheers
      Be kind whenever possible...

            • Nothing wrong with being cautious and getting out on a bike is never lame.

                    petition is here if anyone has a spare thirty seconds. and spread it around, this has the potential to not only get a wider range of helmets and decent prices, but actually safer helmets too.

                    it's a critical issue. in essence, the australian standard only impact test helmets for near lethal impacts but not for the smaller impacts that are much more typical of dirt riding scenarios.

                    reform could bring in helmets complying with international standards that can protect the head better in those more frequent lesser impacts.

                    been chatting with strummer and looking at rides at a much slower pace but heaps of technical challenge e.g. semi-trials. i'll try to get the berg brakes sorted and hopefully start soon!

                      Good to hear strummer is getting better,the slower pace rides sounds great,I like the technical aspect of hills etc but riding at a fast pace has always scared me since my accident,there is not only pain after injuring yourself on a decent stack but the mental side of things can affect how you ride,I struggled with confidence and my riding went downhill quite quickly and was becoming too scared to ride out of fear,it can really mess with you.I hope to be back on the bike just after strum does and can't wait for these types of rides to pop up.

                                Hey mate, thanks for asking.
                                Yep doing pretty well most of the time.
                                I'm almost ready for a few easy rides to see how I go.
                                You know... stuff like fridge hill, big red etc etc, just takin it easy


                                Mickd, Jo has been champing at the bit to get back out there. I told her nobody was interested unless I came along too.
                                I think she bought it.

                                Couple of weeks and we might be on
