Local man missing on his bike
This morning my wife and myself were down town in our local area of Sandgate and we were driving past the Sandgate Police station and a news crew were filiming, tonight on the news it was about a local man age 66 went for a ride on his motorcycle on Monday out to Esk a popular motorcycle ride lots of good back roads through the hills with tight twisty corners, in fact I was out there on Sunday, he hasn't been seen since, his phone is turned off, his debit and credit cards haven't been used and its not normal something has happen.
The police have traced most of the motorcycle roads that go out that way with no sign of him, but there are so many different ways to go out to Esk and all back roads that are great for motorcycles and a lot of places where you could go over the side a steep hill or drop off with out anyone knowing and some corners come up quickly that can catch you out even knowing the road well.
Hope he is ok, I don't know him but I might go out the way I go to Esk tomorrow, never know worth a look just in case as well its a good ride and come home another way, all up about 250km round trip or a tank of fuel.
