I thought it was too wet to harvest. Or, are they clearing the silos in preparation for the next harvest?
No, some places are okay but plenty of others need another week of no rain. ;)

This is wheat.

Was in the garage this afternoon & heard a loud crash out on the road, figured it was yet another accident. Couldn't see anything, then saw dust coming up from the embankment over the road. Raced over to see a car smashed into a tree, so climbed down, expecting to see the worst. Thank God for airbags, the woman driving was dazed and had a few small cuts on her face, arm & leg. A few others came to help & we had to get her out through the passenger door & up the bank to lay her down. Seems she had a medical episode, blacked out & just ran off the road, luckily nothing coming the other way.
Although I'm not looking forward to getting rid of the Patrol, things like this convince me I'm making the right decision to get something safer.

Not only that it is all the other forkwits on the road.

Only yesterday a truckwit (tipper coming out of a quarry) looked me straight in the eye and then pulled out straight in front of me.

Time for a camera.

Edit there are professional truck drivers and truckwits.

The difference between city and country. In Sydney when there's even a minor bingle there are half a dozen tow trucks there within 5 minutes fighting for the job. The car that crashed over the road yesterday is still there and probably will be for a while.

Maybe no insurance and can't afford the tow.

Would loved to have been able to do this type of racing. My Dad did motor pace training with us on my TS250 and would hit 70Kmh on the Ipswich Velodrome but these blokes with the proper Derny's would hit 80Kmh+. Many of the Derny riders and some of the cyclists, also lost their life during the early years of racing. 🥺

The one about the Derny?

Yes, came up briefly then went. Lots of Chinese/Japanese writing, could have even been Arabic. 🙄🤔
