Jarhead 1100

G'Day Guys.

Life has'nt let me get on here much at present but one of our regular members, Jarhead took a bad fall as you all know.

He is a mate of mine, even though we are opposite ends of the globe we keep in touch regularly and I have to say he is one tough boy for all he has been through, and has had to drag himself into work when he can, put a smile on for his kids and keep life running as usual even though it kills him to laugh or cough and he has taken a fair bit of bark (skin) off from the road rash.

I just heard personally from him this morning and thought I'd let you guys know he is battling through. No doubt he'll come back like a boomerang when he's right.

Hope you're doing better?

Hey, I forgot to ask if this was the same bike you were working on earlier this past summer? We kinda know how you did, but how did the bike come out of all of this? I'm sure you could care less about the bike right now? That can be replaced. You can't!

Just glad you're still here with the rest of us. Certainly would be a lonely place without people like yourself! Good people are hard to find.

Here's wishing you a speedy recovery for 2012. A New Year's Wish for you. May Peace, Harmony and new found riches come your way this new year!

God Bless

G'Day Paddy, spoke to him privately a while back, he is doing well and like you said the broken/detached ribs are taking a while to heal but he's getting there. I had two busted ribs once and I couldn't laugh, cry, fart or sneeze without it killing me and mine were only fractured.
