Ride for Smiles is my motorcycle adventure from Byron Bay Australia around the world. It will be a Sunday ride that will just go on and on and on. Although I still call Australia home they say home is where you feel most comfortable, well for me at the moment its on my motorcycle, so whenever im riding I feel at home. Those of us that ride know theres something special about being on the open road destination unknown.
I (Sheldon Thomson) miraculously survived a near fatal accident in late October 2007. During the painful recooperation process I had a lot of time to think about what id like to be doing, getting out there setting positive goals living life to the full while enjoying my love of motorbikes and soccer and giving back a little with the second chance I've been gifted with was high on my list of thngs I would like to acheive. The accident was my little bump in the right direction.
Article in the Northern Star newspaper, Thanks Mark "Robbo" Robinson for such a great story and your positive support of Rideforsmiles.
Click on the link to see where I am, it only has the last 7 days which sort of sux but its better than nothing. It also has a back to base emergency satellite signal so if I ever have any issues then ive got that as a last resort and they can pinpoint me within 10 metres, It was more a little bit of peice of mind for the more remote places I will get too.
If anyone out there finds the motorcycle pannier that was taken off my bike the other night here in Prague it would be really aprreciated if you drop it into a local police station or give me a ring where I can come and pick it up. Please call me on +420 777 544 325 Reward for its safe return
