I know that I can go through Gawler on a B road but I want to get out of town as quickly as I can. I will be leaving from Henley Beach. Any tips on good places (camping/caravan parks) to stay in Port Augusta?

Thanks!

Option B is to get to Gawler as mentioned then up through Tarlee, Rhynie, Auburn, Clare, Gulnare, Gladstone, Wirrabara to Wilmington then take Horrocks Pass to hwy 1 just south of PA. Slower trip but fewer trucks and not as batshit boring. The Hwy 1 motel at PA has cheapish rooms if you want a roof over your head.

Richard, their tyre guru, talked me into a Dunlip 908 RR on the front of the Tenere and it's bloody magnificent. So far it's had some mud and plenty of dirt/gravel to contend with and has been faultless. They balanced it too and I'm not sure they charged very much for that. I know that they don't charge for fitting whereas one of my local shops was talking about 'anything up to $50 to fit a tyre'. I can do it myself if necessary, but these guys have been great.

Saturday Southern Ride 4th Aug

OK....looks like there will be some showers tomorrow but they're suggesting it happens before dawn and some further showers developing in the evening.
This gives us an opportunity to head out.
Nice casual ride through Meadows and heading south.....may or may not get to Deep Creek but that's OK.
Purpose is more for an exploratory run.
All welcome.
Meet at the Meadows Bakery at 9am.
See ya there.

Yep agree the guys there are great to deal with and the pricing is great, going to try a michelin ac10 on the back after running a carlsbad since buying the bike. on fronts a ac12 so see if they suit my casual style of riding, also got front and back balanced, Now to get out and try them out some time this week.
