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





Brachina Gorge dry creek bed....soft, smooth & slippery




Where the hell did you say we were?...........along a public access road out of Blinman



Further along the public access road out of Blinman.




Another creek bed crossing on the P.A.R..........check out the flying fuel can just keeping up with Charlie



One of the many deeply rutted tracks we had to negotiate




The riders view




Sunset across the railway tracks at Parachilna





The famous Prairie Hotel at Parachilna



The front bar Prairie Hotel, Parachilna




Their famous F.M.G. (Ferral Mixed Grill)




Waraweena Conservation Park..the track to Mt Hack





On top of the lookout........not much room to turn around here guys!





As you can see from further up the lookout





and it's a long way down if you go too far





riding down the base of Mt Hack

The Strzeleki Track.......eerrrr highway ?





Mount Freeling Station letter box

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 . One feral out of three (mixed grill) at the Prairie isn't bad, kind of analagous with one roadie out of the three amigos Your photos are great, cheers for now, Ian

Wink More power to the TDM

I notice it was the GS that was falling over everywhere - could it be that the TDM works better off-road?
