The machine is an old Indian motorbike, Second World War vintage.

A beautiful old bike, unfortunately a little banged up.

Not half as bad as the rider though. The pair came a cropper on a dirt road in the central Flinders.

The rider got a broken collarbone in the spill.

And with the rest of the journey with his mates still to go, the prospect is a little daunting.

First they are heading up the Birdsville Track to Birdsville…no mean feat on a heavy bike like this over hundreds of kilometres of dirt and sand.

From there the group is before heading East and home to Sydney….a journey of many hundreds of kilometres.

That’s keen. But he did say he had plenty of pain killers.
