I just responded to Oppie as well!

Both the Tibula & Fibula is broken in his leg...........

I have worked hard with my son to get the two XT550's sorted and if you look, you'll see our names on the top of Oppie's list for the Breede Rivier Bash.
He loves the outdoors and we saw how much satisfaction and excitement he got from helping to rebuild the XT!

When I mentioned that we'd join the Bash in November - he was beside himself!
He was also keen to join the Wilddogs on rides afterwards..... and I saw this as a chance to help him get his life sorted and a way he could meet others that have a love of DS riding and could sort of coax him into the "pack" which would give him tremendous satisfaction and self-confidence.

Thanks for all the massive show of support and PM's ... it's really hugely appreciated and again just shows the amazing cameraderie this forum brings!

Strongs G, I pray for a speedy recovery for Andrew and peace for you. There can be nothing worse than being far from your kids when they hurt, no matter how old they are you always want to protect them.

Ouch sorry to hear - hope he heals well and the new job understands and he is able to start soon as he is heald!
Thanks to all the CT dogs willing to go visit - know how much it mean to me, having total strangers willing to pop in and say hi was the one major reason I was able to get back on a bike again!  :thumleft:
