Steve thanks for organising another Chewton ride, you just seem to keep adding to what’s already a great day out. Pity we had an injury but that sometimes happens. Received a text late last night to say he had a dislocated shoulder and was staying in Bendigo hospital overnight but all seems good at the moment. He wanted to thank everyone on the ride with everybody chipping in to get both rider and bike safely out of the bush. The Ambo’s needed a little encouraging to get to where we needed help but they did a fantastic job. I had a reasonable off when three of us decided to head back to pick up cars, we rode past a camp just off the side of a fire trail to the right. I looked at the site and then looked in front of me and seen that I was now heading off the trail and headlining for a spoon drain I rode in the drain I then hit something resulting in me going over the bars I ended up Lying in the drain with the Beta tumbling towards me and landed on top of me. Captain was there straight away to get me out. Steve who was leading came back to see what the delay was. I can still hear him saying those immortal words “what are you doing you silly old trucker” or words to that effect. Back on the bikes picked up the cars and we head back to the group. Steve drives his old ute quicker that his Beta, I reckon he would give Ari Vatanen a run for his money on those trails. Back to the group load up and head off home.
Till the next one
