No Chainsaws No Motorbikes

While travelling in South Australia one time,having a coffee, I picked up a brochure about a station (ranch) where you could ride their tracks.It was in the south east Flinders where I hadn't been and looked mildly interesting,when I read on the bottom,NO CHAINSAW NO MOTORBIKES ,
that really sparked my interest.

Thought about it for a couple of years and here we are at the gate.




I had planned my approach but when the property owner saw us,I reckon he thought "What harm can those two old blokes do''.( Greg and I have a combined age of 131).We were in.

First Day







That night in our room there is a knock on the door,it is the property owner,bottle of port in hand, Japanese female backpacker it tow.
His daughter had cooked her car from not paying enough attention to the
maitenance,things had got a bit tense on the home front.
We did the right thing and helped him drink his port.

Next Day
















Despite warnings of our demise if we ride this track,we got up.



This is the third part of my ride report THE FLINDERS in THREE PARTS.

Suzuki's can be a bit deceptive,it is a DRZ250.I didn't know what to
expect on the trip so I went with the safe option.
