I've been using my IPhone and the motion x GPS app for about 6 months. No issues at all, mount it in a RAM mount on the bar cross brace below the speedo. No vibration issues yet. but the app does have a lot of areas it shows as no data, but I haven't looked into try to load more maps.

Nice to see you made it home old fella if someone else doesn't post some footage of it I'll dig some up from last year as I was too scared to do it this year after you told me you fell a couple of times and it was so much rougher this year than any previous year.....Emu

Good to catch up with you over the weekend.

Yeah I've got Mt Samuel. It'll take me a while to decipher it and upload it. Give me a couple days.

Thanks for that. Just make sure that it's 2,500 feet high and a 60 degree slope; that's how I've been describing it.

Cheers,
Tim

Cheers Terry

Hi Sidm.

I haven't rode there all the way from Adelaide but have ridden near there from Gawler many times. I can only recommend a dirt route from Angaston to Truro then to the Mt Mary Pub...arguably the best pub in Australia or even the world!. From there I'd take the Old Stock Route to Morgan. Morgan Lagoon is a great place to camp and play carp cricket if that's your thing. I am aware my directions are a bit vague but I hope that helps.

No riding for me for a long while. I have 3 badly smashed fingers. Spent the other night in royal adl with 3 hours surgery (awake, no general anesthetic) they put in 4 plates to join up lots of little pieces of bone. Its in a cast atm. Back to adl on monday for an xray and check up. Pissed we missed the classic, looks like it went well!
Am considering whether to sell the DR and get the lil honda xlx250r that Matty as in the shed on the road. Apparently my bones are brittle, need to get that tested.

The reason I'm having difficulty in describing it is because I had my eyes shut for a significant part of the track. I'm not trying to mislead anyone!
