As it has been mentioned I am speechless, what an amazing gesture from a friend! Well done to KFM  :thumleft:
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

I was very reluctant to post this yesterday but then thought it would show people out there who have been or who are perhaps going through very tough times that there are amazing people out there that care.

Thx for all the warm, comforting comments guys & girls  :thumleft:

Well done to all involved...The Xmas Wish List is truly amazing, no matter how tough you think your life is there is always someone out there having it tougher...
I hope all goes well for your sister 1Kat.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

I think that's the thing.

I've known a couple of families that suffered through a loss like this and it is almost without exception the same thing every time - after the initial shock and ceremonies the 'support group' people kinda go on with their day to day and forget about the people still feeling the loss every day.

It is then in that time that the ones left behind really start to suffer, as the rest of the world have seemingly moved on, but they are still faced by the same kind of feelings and sense of emptiness sometimes.

And that is when it is so easy to think that you are totally alone and no one cares.

Something like this shows that there are actually people who do care.

Good on you.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
