    any road can be challenging if your going fast enough haha, 4th gear wide on a thou makes most roads more than fun enough for a while.

    True words, 2nd gear full noise would do me. Face to face with an emu forced me to re-calibrate my ride approach.

    All good, still heaps of fun.

    Which direction were you travelling?
    East to west or vice versa.

    Edit... my guess is east to west on the mild right hander.
    The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

    I nearly hit an emu about a month ago on Clenton, have had several very close heart pounding moments with roo's on Obriens and had a ( Fuck I'm Dead ) moment when I hit a roo in 2012 on Clenton rd a couple of k's before Brocky's memorial.
    I had just got onto Clenton, heading towards Berry doing 80 ( of course ). A 4x4 ute was just about to pass coming the other way when it hopped from behind a tree about 5 mtrs right in front of me. BANG! Then I woke up a few second's later watching tree tops going by. With my feet up under the bars and my head above the tail light, I ran off the road trying to get back to the bars. Steered away from trees holding the tank. With legs flailing I dropped it between the trees and the road onto and breaking my right leg while grinding to a stop.. The roo bounced off me into the 4x4's bullbar.
    That was at dusk.

    Don't know if the BM was with any other riders.
    There was nobody around when I saw it so I went back to check the scene.
    The police arrived while I was there. The rider was further up the road with the ambulance and chopper about to be airlifted out.
    Hope he is doing well and will get back to riding again sometime.
    Correct. It's not a hard right hander and only a slight bend. Yes I was with 2 others that I have met that same day. Alan and another fella. Can't remember his name.
    But my luck has drawn the short straw. I'm not a "racer" by all means. But "corner gravel" made me humble like it has done many times before. Some of you might agree.
    What saved my bacon was when I started to loose it, I "picked the bike up" (don't know if its the correct term) and aimed for the BM trouble U to go between the larger trees. Didn't see the overgrown drain/ditch. Front came to a dead stop and me flying 20 odd meters like a rag doll.

    Glad you are still here to tell us about it, I took a work mate for a ride up that way last week, didn't even make it that far before we discovered the limit of his abilities, luckily his was no where near as bad as that.

    lesson learnt for all involved I guess.

    Thanks mate. That road change every week. I normally used to go there 2 to 3 times per week in weekdays by myself. To avoid the attention of the cops and the crowd . Think I Know that roads by hart.

    But I well and truly got toooooo cocky. No excuses. I f......ed up. And I'm paying a big price for being a you know what.

    Glad to have a second chance.....

    Please be careful out there and keep them upright.

    The only ordeal We had was that my Mrs got told by the cops that people removed a few things of the bike????? Don't know what for and why??? How true that is I don't know. The Top box is missing and my Sena is missing from my helmet. It was still on when they removed my helmet. Violent femms Blister in the sun was still cranking

    Pleased to see that you can post up. I hope things missing turn up. In the past we have removed things from damaged bikes to keep them safe and return them to riders we know. The RS is a good bike I had one and now a R1100s.

    Thanks Graelin. Agreed. The boxers is one of the strongest engines built to date. Mine was almost on 180 000km. And still going strong. I do Hope things turn up.
    My ultimate favourite is the boxer cup. Always wanted one.
    If you need a performance chip for your Beemer let me know. I am 50% sure I got a R 1100s one at home from John Gemmi.

    Glad to see you on the road to recovery & thank you for telling us the details as it can be a lesson for all of us.

    I too am very familiar with the area. It is an unforgiving stretch of road if you make a mistake, virtually no runoff & lots of hard objects to hit. It demands full concentration, no time for wandering thoughts. Add in the prospect of wandering wildlife & it demands full respect.

    Good to see the rider is ok, group ride last sunday bickley brook rider hit gravel kicked the bike back up lucky.
    Best to change line if possible if not push on the bar to keep the bike from sliding same for wet roads and oil.
    Back home tramlines and ice in high Country are far worse.
