Was that a rock from roost that broke the LED or laydown ???

I made perspex covers for mine on saturday just gone, same lights and a real easy fit due to the recessed glass and ability to silicone the covers in

Keep going guys, the APC is a good event hey ???
Cheers

Thanks catman for the offer, but the tank seems to be holding petrol 1.5 days after my off.
The problem was..... Coming into a weer and locking the front for a mili second I was down before you knew it on the clay. As they say "user error" was to blame.... Not the bike!

The broken LEDs were from roost... Now I have 2 broken lights, you tend to catch people at creek crossings/intersections and get roosted on the way out..

Anyway, had a great day.... 450km and a early finish to meet up with a mate that owns a opal mine at Grawin. Might stay another day if this rain happens tonight.... Just got a call and might have to ride the bitch of mine (the road) if it pisses down.

Had to remind myself, it's all about the adventure of this trip and having fun while your doing it, even if it takes 16 days instead of 14.

The mine shaft we went down

Lets see what tomorrow brings...

Windy, rainy and bit of a miserable day in Grawin. Will stay here today and do some maintenance on the bikes in the shelter. Weather looks like it will be a little bit better tomorrow.
Track conditions aren't that good. Plan is to try and make lake cargelligo tomorrow

Just going to put it out there, orange tool bag lost between booyal and mount perry after a river creek crossing on day 2.

A rock broke the lid off the tool tube and it fell out.
Any information please call Andrew 0427 078 259

Is it the bottom bolts or top both bolts or both ?.
Anyway keep safe till the end don't push it, there seems to be a few guys just falling short of finishing with injuries.

Looks like FB is putting in a big day, he's just ridden past Drake and looks like he's heading for urbenville or a camp spot before there maybe ?
