Andy Crook had a nasty off in November that he's still recovering from.
He decked his 1200 Adventure about 5 kays south of the halfway house on a wet road and sustained some debilitating
injuries to one arm.
He smashed his elbow joint and some broken bones in his wrist.
The elbow has been fixed with a new elbow joint but he will require some more surgery on his wrist and probably more
work on the elbow.
He is back at work on reduced hours and whilst he is healing OK he still has limited use of his arm and still not riding.
For those not in the know Andy looked after the spare parts scheme for many years before it was stopped due to lack of

you've lived in Sydney for any length of time no doubt you know someone who helps to push up the daisies and weeds in
Rookwood Cemetery. We are going to join a twilight tour and pick up on some of the history of one of the largest burial
grounds in the world. At over 700 acres it is the last and permanent address of more than 800,000 people.
Some interesting folk (they were when they were alive) are planted there.
A cafe run to somewhere will follow for anyone who doesn't want to sleep over.

Dead Centre Run. - Sunday 21 Feb. 5.30 to 7.30pm.
Twilight Tours depart from the small pedesrian gate in East St Lidcombe.

                                   KARUAH 2010 RECON RUN

On Saturday 16 January about 35 of us made our way to Dungog for the annual Karuah Recon run.
One purpose of the run is to finalise support arrangements for the Karuah River Rally and the other is
to have some pleasant relaxation in Dungog - mainly at the Bank Hotel. Here's what the run looked
like once we finished riding. Rob Lovett

One of the best ways of kicking off a new year is to get yourself (and your bike) down into the Brindabella
Valley in the second week of January for the Capital Rally. The approach via Canberra involves around 30k of
dirt and a picturesque descent from the top of the Brindabellas down into the valley of the Goodradigbee River
beneath Gums and Willows.

There were already around 20 bikes there on Friday night with about 90 badges sold by the Sunday morning.
Temperatures were in the high 30's and the shallow river was absolutely perfect for lazing in for hours. Some
great BM's turned up including Graham Johns' R80G/S with a stunning make-over, Rod Luff on another nice
looking G/S, Dave Ramsay on his R80 G/S "Hilton Special" and Henning Jorgensen on hi 1973 R75/5 (with
the biggest petrol tank in the business). There was also a new Moto Guzzi Stelvio (a very large creature
indeed), and Bob Coleman (President of the ACT BMW Club) looked like he'd towed in enough gear with his
R1150G/S to set up permanent residence in the valley. Rob Edgar's R100S was also a bit of a stunner.

Phil Boyle, Helen Crowe (750 Breva) and Mal from MRA did a great job of catering, cooking and support
facilities with help from Eurotune Motorcycles.

Once again the Capital proved to be an unbeatable way of starting the year. Rob Lovett

                                         The BMW Touring Club of NSW was founded in 1965, with an initial membership of 15 and we celebrated our 35th
anniversary in October 2000. The aim of the club is to provide a social medium for BMW riders and motorcycle touring. It is not necessary for you to own a BMW
motorcycle to join the club. There are a wide range of activities throughout the year, ranging from regular day rides, rallies (local, interstate and other BMW club
rallies), runs with interstate BMW clubs and camping weekends. We have gained a large number of trophies from our attendance at rallies. The club also has regular
maintenance days (where you can tap into a vast range of knowledge from our members). We have spare parts available at a slight discount for members and a
variety of special tools for use when servicing, repairing or replacing components. We also have social evenings, an annual presentation night/dinner and a
Christmas party. The club encourages family involvement in all events.
