Anyone know if there's any fuel available between Tailem Bend ("J" at bottom left) and Rocket lake along the route below?

(It's looking like a long way between fuel stops from Tailem Bend to Rocket Lake to Wentworth)

No fuel out there anywhere now, Paruna stores gone, when we first started going out there every little town used to have a general store and fuel pump.
I go to Cambrai, Swan Reach and Old Loxton road now, fill up at Loxton.

I see that someone has a KTM 990 up for sale on flea market.....he's offered to consider a swap involving a Tiger 800XC.....I wonder how much he'd be willing to offer on top of the 990??

I tell a lie ... theres still fuel at Karoonda store. ... but thats not far from Tailem Bend so you probably wouldn't need any by then, unless you have a DR650 with a stock tank

It's about time the DR got a Safari upgrade ey Ozzy

p.s. just got back from a nice ride with the little munchkin and her new DriRider (10th birthday present). She was nice and warm up top but the trackies over the jeans over the tights just don't cut it in the Adelaide Hills in winter. Looks like some pants to suit the jacket are in order. She did ask me why we were going so slow.... When she is 18 and on her own bike she can go as fast as she wants but until then its precious cargo speed... Great to spend the time with her though.

I think those safari suits only came in 3 colours.

I wonder what colour that one was ?

Missed this post, sorry mate! So far, it's looking like a good option. Would cater well for those with fuel issues.

Whats the track from Mopoke Hut to Hattah like! How does it compare with the track heading north from Rocket Lake? (Just trying to gauge the amount of soft sand we'll be dealing with).
