The next day Rod and I fed the fish guts to the birds at the beach.







Then we had to say goodbye to Moonta Bay because Rod had to go back home and I wanted to go to Adelaide. Because there was still a lot of fish filets leaved over I took a big load of them with me to Adelaide.



In Adelaide I stayed at Giselas 5 star house. Gisela is a cousin of my grandfather who has retired in Adelaide.



On Monday morning I first went on a little ride to the beach in Glenelg to see if it look different since I have been there in 2010. It did not :)



From there I went in to the Adelaide Hills to get a little bit more winding roads than in the city.



In the afternoon I started with the 40.000 km service on my bike. First task change the spark plugs. You have to disassemble nearly the half bike to reach the spark plugs so it took me only 3 hours to get it done.









Because I had it all disassembled I although installed spare clutch and throttle cables.

I had to do an oil change as well but I did not want to spill oil all over Giselas driveway so Paul (Inmate Dirt_Boy) let me use his shed the next day.





After I finished the oil change Paul showed me around in the hinterlands.





Because Paul only had time until midday the passed me on to his mate Brian. He took me to some roads in the Hills that could easily be located in the Alps as well.

By installing spare cables, do you mean that you route the new cables alongside the old ones so they can be hooked up if an old one snaps? That sounds like a good idea, just something I have never heard of.

Old enduro setup tactic, if that is what he's done. Good plan nevertheless, although modern cables don't fail as often as the older ones used to. And you have to store spare cables somewhere, so why not where they might end up?

Wednesday it got really hot in Adelaide. So I went to the beach in Glenelg for a swim in the ocean.



After the refreshment I drove into the city central to buy some things. Because the bikes thermometer went up to 42C my first stop was at the museum of Adelaide they have air-condition :) and besides you get to know some stuff about the history.
I then spent most of the afternoon in Giselas pool.



On Thursday it got even hotter, more the 43C. At mid-morning I met Paul and his riding mates for a coffee but it was so hot I had to spend the rest of the day near the pool.

Friday I went on a ride along the coast from Adelaide and the farthest point I ended up was Victor Harbor. When I started it was around 40C in Adelaide so I did what I do most of the time when it's that hot I wetted my shirt (with tab water) to get some cooling. Unfortunately the temperatures dropped down on my trip to only 18C when I got south.
On the way back to Adelaide though winding roads in the hills it luckily got warmer again.





Because I spend Saturday lazing around I had a drive on Sunday to do something. So I went hiking from the Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty returning 8 km with a lot steeply parts.
While hiking I expected to have sore muscles the next day and I have not been wrong.

On the 23th Gisela and me went to Whyalla to spend Christmas there. On the drive I saw my fist Pink Lake that was actually pink.



Sadly I forgot to charge my camera so there are not that many pictures in this post :(
On Christmas Eve we went on a fishing trip but we didn't catch a single fish.











However we caught 33 Blue Swimmer Crabs and saw a lot wild dolphins.

Christmas Day we had a massive BBQ for 18 people. But obviously we had a lot of leftovers for the next days.
