Short Update

Oops, didn’t realise I haven’t put up any updates for a while, so to hit on some quick highlights:

  • I created a Facebook Group for the Around Australia ride.  You can access it via this link and you don’t have to be a member of Facebook to see it.  You’ll be able to see/talk to other riders and read about what we are up to.
  • The Everyday Hero Ride Around Australia Team has now raised over $47,000!
  • On the weekend I completed the master cylinder rebuild for both front and rear brakes on my Road Star.  Finally I have front brakes operating normally again (take note any ’99 model Roadstar owners).
  • Oh, and did I mention there is less than three months to go?!!!

Hi, my name is Glenn Martin and in October 2010 I’ll be taking part in the Steven Walter Foundation “Ride Around Australia”. All participants are being asked to raise at least $2,500 to donate to the Steven Walter Foundation that goes to research into childhood cancer. I’m currently in my 30s, an IT professional living in Canberra Australia for the past 15 years or so. I’ve ridden motorbikes for 20 years and for the last 10 years my ride has been a ‘99 Yamaha Road Star, a big Japanese 1600cc V-Twin cruiser.
