Just spoke to Spokes, Gringo's hip isnt busted, just his wrist. He's leaving his bike in Gilgandra and getting a bus or train home.
Apparantly he had a blackout after 800 smokes for breakfast ??

John has cut accross to Wagga and Bobbazooki had to get home to service something, so Its just Spokes and the Nom, Madis

The weather here in Victoria is perfect today, thanks for leaving PC.

I have spoken to Gringo and he is sounding a bit sore, he said he is ok but shaken up.

Gringo our thoughts are with you mate, we all hope you will be ok and we will see you soon.

John did split over to Wagga to see his family , and I have just arrived home , I've been with the lad's the whole time , I only left Spokes & Madis a few hours ago , we parted at Coffs as Spokes was meeting the misses for another rally in Sawtel. and i didn't have that much further to go to see my misses , .............. it's a no brainer

and GRINGO , as it turns out had a stroke , the doctor's at Dubbo hospital coudn't operate until they found out for sure , he'l be fine, his misses is flying down to see him and bring him home , all in one peice , and with a great yarn to tell. In hindsight , it's fortunate he hit the back of the ute and not the front.
