Thanks mate. Enjoyed that.

How much are all those KLRs worth?
(that should get the viewers thinking!)



And, did you learn anything more about home made 'bling'?

I'd better stop now, you may come and hit me.

Nice writeup. I'm back there next month for the Classic with, among others, Frank on his KLR whch should have its YZ450 forks and YZ85 Ohlins rear end finished by then. Should be interesting. It does sound interesting especially the YZ85 rear end
Hopefully we can get up through Dangalli and back via the Corner. Might pm you about some route options along the river to Hay.
Cheers

Happy to help if I can

Yeah probably but at least I managed to actually do a ride report this time. Usually I never get around to it.

You're welcome

And, did you learn anything more about home made 'bling'? Not really but my Aldi GPS did break from its mount at one point while I was following the other guys up the greasy track. I tried holding it with my left hand to stop it from bouncing around every time I hit a rough patch but eventually decided I better stop and remove it before the whole thing ended in tears.

I'd better stop now, you may come and hit me.

I am not completely sure but I don't think so.


Thanks everyone for the comments. It can be hard to find the time to do ride reports but it makes it seem worthwhile when I hear that other people are enjoying it.

Good if you are a sheep or cattle farmer.

Can be bad if you are a tourist trying to get up some of these roads.

A lot of the major roads (which can still be gravel/clay) have electronic signs to indicate if they are open or closed and they can be "closed" by the push of a button. Big fines for driving/riding on closed roads.

Well done Troy... excellent report and pics to match.

I will be going to Streaky Bay in SA and might go back via Flinders I really loved it through there in Sept 09 when it was still dry so it must be so different now .

My Aldi GPS has a permanent cable tie on it now

Your probably right, it can be amazing how much difference a bit of water makes.

As for the GPS - fortunately I was able to turn the broken bracket over and bodgy it up so it would last the trip home. Can't complain though as it has handled a hell of a lot of abuse that is was never designed for . I am surprised it lasted as long as it did.
