Thanks to everyone for pulling together yesterday as mentioned before this is why we ride together in a group and not alone. Mickkal handled the situation perfectly and calmly give exact locations of were Jinxy was and were to meet us so we could guide ambulance to him. With these directions the helicopter found a clearing and was able to land close by and care for Jinxy . While Mick and I were waiting for the ambulance to arrive Jacko and Jack stayed with Jinxy and cared for him by keeping him in the shade and in a comfortable position and reassuring him that everything was under control and help was on its way this is a very important thing to do as it keeps an injured persons moral up and also stops then from going into shock or passing out as I said everyone played there part and turned a bad situation into a good result for Jinxy.

To all that helped Jinxy THANK YOU, he will be ok real bad concussion & maybe a fractured eye socket, nothing appears to be broken tho, he was very lucky & will remain in hospital for a couple of days to make sure all is ok with bad concussion, he wonít be at drinks on Saturday as he has a fight night to go to anyway but who knows if heíll be there either but being a tuff nutt heíll probably be there to coach his team.
Once again big thanks
Chat soon

Farrrrk, thatís some scary shit. Here I am trying to decide on a big 1290 NOT and a 1200 GS. Maybe a little 500 is more than enough. Speedy recovery mate 🙏

Bloody hell, that's a big crash, Jinxy built like a brick shit house and the AT heavy weight,that's a lot of force behind it. Mend quickly and hopefully hear all about it Saturday.

Thanks to everybody today, it was a good team effort today by the crusty crew to get Jinxy off hospital and it was a reminder why we shouldn't ride alone. Couple of pics up, bike is wrecked and the helmet is a bin job.

Hope you get well soon Jinxy, the Africa Twin took one hell of a hit and you must have too.
You dug in deep and made it through. Keep us posted on your recovery and hopefully we can have a beer with you on Saturday night.

Well what a day,it all started off ok but about an hour in jinxy had a nasty stack and ended up getting choppered out to hospital. Don't worry he is ok,sort of. Being sweep I came across him laying on the track by his bike surrounded by debris. He was in a bad way so we got his helmet off to find a fully closed up black eye and a few cuts. He was a bit out of it and couldnt remember anything. We think he has a broken leg as well. Tommy and Mick went off to organise the ambulance and jack and I stayed to look after kindy. It seemed to take a long time but we were out in the sticks and one ambulance got a flat on the way in. Eventually a medic was lowered from the chopper to help jinxy. Then the ambos came and got him on a board so we could carry him to where the hellicopter had landed in a clearing and he was off to hospital at last. Looking at the scene of the crash it seems that he hasnt seen a log laying across the track and hit it at speed, lost control, fishtailed and hit a tree about 30 meters further along the track.the front of the Africa twin is absolutley destroyed and the tree is not much better so he must have hit it really hard. Anyway mick went and got his ute and we loaded the bike on and got out of there. Got back to the rock in and it was closed again, bummer. See has all next saturday.

Just noticed that PAR are also leaving the Rock Inn at 8:00 to ride to their xmas camp out so there might be a bit of a crowd there in the morning. Just look for my white Isuzu dual cab. Looks like we actually have had a bit of rain in some sections which will be a bonus.

OK 8:00 take off from the Rock inn on Saturday, the 24hr fuel pump at Wandering is broken at the moment so we will be getting fuel at Bannister so you are going to need fuel range of 250 klm. Total distance will be 357klm. Jinxy if you did Tommys last ride on the AT you will be fine on this one, it is mainly open but has some bits of single for interest and one big downhill. GPX has been sent.

Okay mate let's see what ideas come up and go from there. The ride we did on Saturday was great as it had a bit of everything in it, single track a few nice climbs even a river crossing with some good changes of scenery

Jinxy we have one other maybe at the moment so still open to ideas but I was thinking of starting at the rock inn and going for an explore towards Lol Gray area and back thru wandering for a pint and fuel then back to the rock inn. Should be around 350klms with lots of open back roads.

Great ride yesterday. Thanks for leading Tommy.

At times we had less traction than an excited puppy scampering across a polished floor.

Good to see Ross out there again.

Thanks tommy and co,was a huge ride yesterday, like three normal rides joined together. Three of us got lost on the way back so it was lucky Ross had phone reception so tommy could find us.
