Did Renmark to Maree, William Creek, Oodnadatta track to Mt Dare, Finke, Mereenie loop and then came back to Melb on the Stuart in April/May and had a fantastic three weeks away on my LC4E. Your photos just reminded me of how good it was.
PS. One more thing about the Andy Strapz panniers I found, I could crash without the panniers self destructing. Thought they were a great investment.
