Hi everyone,
Didn't realise there was chatter over here, been a bit busy on MYST. Sadly the roo hit put me out of business for the rest of the ride, I had a 50CC Gold nested inside a Trans Australia planned to finish it off.
What a marvellous machine this ST is!

Thanks for the Hondashop info guys. Still trying to organise the trip home etc but feeling great! Thanks WendyL for the help and accommodation at the top of the ride. Much appreciated.

The bike is being shipped back to Newcastle.  I've lodged a claim but it won't go any further until it arrives and is assessed.  I'm in no hurry, I've got three others and will hopefully be picking up a nice new Tiger 800XCA in a couple of weeks.

Hi Everyone.

Part two of the ride if you want to have a look.  It's got the gory bits :-)

Good write up again.
Head butting a roo would be a frightening experience.
Rogue road trains wouldn't be much fun. I think the air horn would have come in handy around then.
Cheers,
Gary

You are right Gadget, but I squeezed what might be a year's riding for many into 6 days. So if hitting a roo, dodging a truck and emergency stopping for a stupid P plater was all that happened in that year I reckon it'd be a good one.  So all up it wasn't at all traumatic, just a bunch of things that hppened along the way.
