Wow Rolf, That's hectic. Shame man, I hope the op goes well and he recovers. Is your dad Peter??? "Hats off" to all the guys and girls who helped him off the mountain. Such a pity Tokai (and or all of San Parks) don't have the access/funds to be Helivac'd off the mountain here. Choppers all waiting or at forest fires.....?? ...and Hats off to your Dad ("crazy 60 year old") who was out there, on single track, mind you, giving it horns on his bike.-"We don't stop riding because we get old, we get old because we stop riding!" Please post up dates as I'd really like to hear how he is doing. Cheers, Joe.
