CLick for Rules for Roadside Assist Section


WARNING: This is not a general discussion section. This section is reserved expressly for post started by those people in need of IMMEDIATE breakdown assistance. Please do not START a thread in here unless you need assistance. Any registered user may RESPOND to a thread started by the person who needs assistance, but no banter please, keep this strictly on topic so valid communications can be easily referenced.

This is not an accident or injury response section. If you have had an accident and are injured, please call 000 for assistance.

If you need breakdown assistance support from a PSB volunteer, please do as follows:

1) Ensure you and your bike are in a safe location to prevent exposure to damage and personal injury. If you are injured and need medical assistance, contact 000.
2) Create a new post in this section with the subject titled “Help Wanted – Suburb”.
3) In the body of the post please put as much detail as you are able including but not limited to:

(a) A good description of your actual location including street name, direction, nearest cross street, or any other information that you feel would be of assistance for someone trying to find you.
(b) Details on what the issue and the kind of assistance you need. EG: “Bike broken down, both bike and I require movement to Victoria Park”.
(c) Provide details of where you and/or bike need transport to.
(d) Provide your mobile telephone number if available.

If you don’t have a phone that has internet access to make the above post then contact someone who does have internet access and they can create a post for you.

If you are able, continue to monitor this thread for updates and responses.

What will happen now:

1) When you create a thread in this section an email is sent to all regsitered PSB volunteers automatically. It will also be monitored by those using the forum at the time.
2) They will visit this thread for details, and if able to respond will make a post accordingly.
3) If you have provided your mobile number, the respondent will likely make contact with you to let you know they are on their way and provide an ETA.

NOTE: This is not an accident response thread, meaning to say, if you have had an accident and you are injured, please contact 000 and ask for an Ambulance. This section is to respond to non life threatening or injury situations.

For the avoidance of doubt (and stupidity) do not post in this section if you are wanting help moving your bike somewhere were it does not relate to assistance required for an immediate breakdown need.

If you have a bike trailer or other facilities that could assist PSB Members who have broken down, and would like to register as a PSB Assist member, please email [email protected] from the email address you would like on the register so that you can be added.

    My girlfriend's son did the same thing at Skeet Rd this time last year, we had to climb out the windows & stand on the roof until help arrived.
    The correct number of bikes to own = N + 1, where N is the current number of bikes you own.

        Especially when they re-float the boat and find the drowned hooker that didn't get out in time - because she was too distracted by the 120 sealed bags of smuggled marijuana.
        One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

                  It's a drawn out process but bar the use of heavy equipment its the best way. Snatch straps and elec winches will just get destroyed if they are used as there is just to much suction under the vehicle to break it free in one go.
                  Had to do the hand winch trick once.. Driving star pickets into the ground for every pull off about 1m for about 100m of mud.... Was not fun at all.

                    I had a chain block and tackle in my old shortie fourty for such occasions, thankfully never got that stuck, although the rego plate came off a few times as a shovel...

                        One of my mates 20 years ago. This was a brand new ute the guy in the Khaki was taking out on patrol. Thought he found a shortcut.....took them 8 hours, 2 bogged HJ75's and finally a D9 Dozzer to drag all 3 out. See that "funny angle" the tray is at in the second photo, it sayed that way.
