We had an interesting night last night at Diamantina Lakes, with Dingoes howling and a rather suspicious looking Min Min light appearing at the same time. WTF! A man should lay off the Rum and stick with bushels.

Had rain from the Lynd junction to Cairns, nearly got blown off the road at windy hill when a gust made my front tyre lose traction twice, lucky i was already down to 60kph, stayed cozy and dry until someone lost control and blocked the Kuranda range and i got soaked through waiting for an hour to get moving again.
Would do it all again tomorrow, a great ride

Photo gallery

Here are the photos from the trip (click on gallery link), warts and all with no omissions, mostly shot thanks to OBJ.
I will attempt to get the videos uploaded and post the link here when done.

Thanks for the company gents.

A few things that made the trip worthwhile.

Thursday night at OBJ's Barcy camp. Great tucker again.
Enjoyed windora, a good little town. Souths won again .
Meeting new decent fellas at birdsville.

And a bloody good camp in the Diamantina NP.

Cheers.

As Usual Henry was running late



While the bank manager was giving a lesson on NAB loans and securing your 990 with Carbon Credits. Speedwobble reckons it's all sheep shit!



The things you find Outback, nowhere near town.



The view from flag pole hill.



Why is it we always attract attention?



Saw an Albino fierce snake.



Nice tent, i got one just like it.



Diamantina lakes, does it get any better?? A Min Min light, howling Dingoes and a rum drinking XR650 rider.

They did GK, took so long to upload the first one I needed a rest then got called in to work, will get them up but gotta get some gravel under me first.
I should have taken the gopro, this camera is a bit limited in its ability to get us in utubes top ten.
