Day # 5

By now I was getting used to the front wheel wobble but it had become very obvious that it need fixing before damage was done to other components or it spat me off.. I become used to it but by no means was I enjoying it.. Nothing was going to spoil my trip though..

We left the Motel and headed up the Coast alittle and called into the Brigalow Caravan Park in Urunga where I used to live many years ago at the tender age of 5 and had many fond memories flooding back..









I was very surprised at how it hadn`t changed very much at all over the years and could still see myself playing Soccer on the oval for the under 6 Sparrows.. It was during one of those flash backs that I started wondering what I did with the little screw driver that is used to do up the Sat Nav.. After checking my pockets and pulling my tankbag apart the last place I saw it was when I threw it on the bed thinking I shouldn`t be doing that cause I will probably leave it there...

We turned back to the Motel in a bit of a hurry incase they started to make up the rooms and maybe not find it again.. Went through the rooms and found nothing.. Rechecked my pockets again and found it sitting in a pocket I hadn`t checked.. Sorry Rack..

While there made a few phone calls to Dalby Motors for help with the front wheel and decided it couldn`t be fixed over the phone so decided to make the detour and let them have a look at it.. After playing with a few suspension settings and stuffing around a little.. Sorry Rack.. we were back on the road around 10 with a new destination..

Not too many photos of this afternoons riding because of a late start to the day but had time for a stop and a coffee at a couple of places along the way..

Some photos by Racketeers












The Dodgie Brothers..



Well.. Dodgie Brothers In-laws anyway..

We had now found ourselves in Queensland..








If anyone would like to work out where it is then here you go...








Found a few great back roads that where heaps of fun that wound there way through forrests and hills..




But still had quite a few ks to travel and had yet another evening riding well after sunset..











Eventually making Dalby quite late but hopefull of a good outcome tomorrow for the front wheel..
