Well i am a 44 yrs young, married for the third time (slow learner) but have it right this time:). I have four children from the age of 17 to 23 yrs old with the youngest been my daughter and the others are all boys. I work away on a two week on and two week off roster in the Oil/Gas industry at Moomba SA. So have time to ride when i get home. I have had a few bikes over the years but cant remember them all with it been a mixture of dirt and road bikes. I love to relax by riding bikes, fishing, and anything outdoors and spenting time with my family. My Name is John but normally go by the nickname of Bull.

What type of music do you like

Have you had a Bike/Trike accident that you want to tell us about
Well it was a long time ago (1980) on a sheep/cattle station but i still remember like it was yesterday. Travelling down a dirt track on the way home after a day at work, I was next to a railway line and I wasnt looking where I was going as i was looking at the countryside around me and i ran into a pile of railway lines and sleepers pushed up into a pile with dirt. I manage to slow the bike down to about 60 km/h but still hit it. I remember lying there in so much pain that i didnt think i could put up with it anymore but the mind is a powerful thing, I ending up getting my first ride in a plane with the Flying Doctor Service. I am still putting up with a crook back today and all the pain that goes with it in my back and down my legs But there is always someone worst off than ourselves and nothing will every stop me riding again as i just love it when it is me the bike and the road.
