Longest Day 2011 on the posties
The madness all started late one night
The goal to get to camerons corner,where 3 borders of Australia meet ,by sundown
Just a short 1400+km trip
3 postie ct110's ,2 bored out to a proper 110cc and 1 experimental combination of 117cc
24hr fuel 250km in
about 700km in boredom had set in for young Joe as we waited for Phil to change a sprocket back to a 16T
A bit of slip stream riding was require to keep one of the bukes at about 90kph
Around the 870km mark we hit water,alot of water about 1km long and up to .6 of a metre deep
By then a couple of big bikes had caught us,a tenere660 and a v-strom1000
Another 150km down the road we were met by more water
After this run of water we got into the town of Thargomindah to be told there was 1.6m of water over the road about 130km out.
Phil went looking for the local copper to find a way around.Unfortunately or fortunately maybe he wasn't in.The decision was made to call it quits.Word had come in that another rider had hit a kangaroo and was in hospital.Others were stuck or hadn't made it on the larger bikes.2 bikes made to the corner they had come from the south.We got lucky and found a motel owner in town that opened a couple of rooms up for us.Every thing gets shut down when the town is flooded in.
Take the green pill or the red pill- the choice is yours;This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
