Missing riders

In August this year, Brisbane rider Siemon Mulder went missing after heading out for a ride on his Triumph Sprint ST.

Tragically his body wasn’t found for six days.

In a rare coincidence he was found by a fellow rider who crashed on the same corner.

We sincerely hope Jody hasn’t met with similar consequences.

These incidents are examples of why riders should always tell someone where they are going and carry a charged-up phone or other tracking device so they can be located.
