Outback ride cut short by fall

Veteran motorcyclist Peter Fargey doesn’t know how he was suddenly thrownfrom his motorbike while riding in the New South Wales Outback. He has been a regular rider since the 1970s, and almost all that time has been without a major incident. But this changed during a trip with a friend earlier this year.

Peter’s BMW F800 hit a patch of “bulldust” near Louth, 99 km south west of Bourke. He was catapulted off his bike and suffered extensive leg injuries. Along with stray livestock, road-trains and motor vehicle drivers dozing at the wheel, “bulldust” can be a major hazard for Outback riders.
