Arkaroola Photos TDM Adventurer view

Three of us left from Adelaide; NX 650 Dominator; K1200R & the TDM850 travelling dew north on as many dirt roads as we could find up to Hawker; Wilpena Pound; Blinman; Parachilna; Beltana; Waraweena Private Conservation Park; Leigh Creek & Lyndhirst, then east to the Mt Hope/ Arkaroola Rd and then south to Arkaroola.

Fully loaded ready for adventure

The first challenges

Starts to get slippery

These roads are suppose to be dry, now where is the best place to come off for the camera?

Right here seems good

Sunset first night

Our first glorious sun rise........Who's put the kettle on?

Station road near Hawker

Glorious riding roads in the Flinders Ranges

One of the many creek bed crossings..............keep a look out for flash floods guys !

Brachina Gorge

I've always loved your work Mr Marsta:freaky

Great report
Loved the pics especially the feral mixed grill. Interesting loading of the TDM too. Is there extra gravity in those parts that makes the bikes fall down?

If you have any more pics I am sure that we could find the time to take a look

Masterbrewer, it is great country out that way. I think the public access road was the old Artimore Track.....can get a bit rough at times:wink: . One feral out of three (mixed grill) at the Prairie isn't bad, kind of analagous with one roadie out of the three amigos:lol3 Your photos are great, cheers for now, Ian:freaky
