Rob, daeng you aren't afraid of long trips.
I really enjoy your travel reports.( I know I have said it before)
Swedish summer has really been rainy this year, not much riding for me.

greetings to all from Roger.

I was wondering where you'd got to Rob Looks like a good trip, almost enough to make me want to come back across the ditch and do a bit more exploring.

The pic above reminds of the old telegraph station at Eucla, although it had more sand around it
Here 'tis

Great photo's, Rob. It looked like good cattle country out there. Like the Kimberleys. You run about 1 LSU to 10 ha. Most of the stations in the kimberly's are about a million acres but only run 8000 head. Also some very unusual fence posts in one photo. Made out of a type of angle iron i've never seen. Also great photo's from the top by Dennis. I would have stayed with you as well. I'm not into climbing mountains and doing marathons to take photo's but with Dennis being such a fitness nut it would have been a small stroll for him.
Keep the pictures coming and if they're as good as this lot I might post an action shot of me in my lounge chair in front of the T.V.
Cheers,

Gidday Roger, James, and Lioyd,
If we stayed another day or so there would have been a problem, heavy rains in that area would have made things impassable in some spots, luckily we left when we did.
Heres frederict von mountain climber Denis,

Is it the same issue ? When the bike goes onto reserve it cuts out ?

What is the condition of the inside of the tank like ? Something blocking/fouling the reserve fuel pickup ? I suggest you remove the tap and check for rubbish in there and empty the tank, blow compressed air back through the fuel pickup and inspect the inside of the tank for crap.
Don't use a naked flame when inspecting the tank or.....
Sorry....I just wanted to use that smiley, I didn't mean your stoopid

Pull plugs out (yes both of them) put the plug caps on and make sure the plugs are touching the engine, you need to be able to see the electrode though. Now press the starter while looking at the plugs... can you see a nice fat blue spark ?
If not you have electrickery problems check coil connections make sure the terminals are clean and dry.

Best of luck

Guys, I think I am mad. I tried to put a new spark plug in the cap and it did no spark. Put everything back toghether and know the big runs well.
What the fuck ??? Fuel lines now I'm sure they're good. I only replaced the fuel filter.
