Dirt road Morgan to Renmark

A mate has mentioned a dirt road on his latest Hema map starting about 15 k up Balah road from Morgan & heading east to come out not far from Renmark. We are going to check it out on Sunday & I was wondering if anyone here has ridden it & what it is like. I am thinking it might follow the power inter-connector to the eastern states.If anyone has any info please let me know.

Here we go again , seems if you are a high ranking MP with friends in high places in South Australia its ok to download kiddy porn, I seriously think there needs to be an independent investigation into South Australia's corrupt Judicial system, I bet some Judges In SA have their own collection of kiddy porn, Hence why this "former Labor MP" will walk.... Its a fucking disgrace .

Perhaps the words "moving forward" give a clue ?

Are the E-07's aggressive enough for the 950 ?

I have one on the XR650 and it took a bit of getting use to after running D606's most its life, but those E-07's sure are long lasting.

The E10 looked very soft last weekend

I see it'a 50/50 tyre.



Paul from mt isa was running these E09 Dakars & they do a 150/18


I just don't like these, Gatey tried similar Front & it's in my shed, E07 Maybe OK on the back?


I'll stik to these ATM but I might try the E09 Dakrs this year.

I just don't like these, Gatey tried similar Front & it's in my shed, E07 Maybe OK on the back? I wouldn't put one on the front. Okay for the back but dont expect it to grip like a D606. Fucking useless in sand.

Mefo super explorer 150/18 Yep these will do, maybe for me to ultinate with E-07. I'm not buying a E-09 again.

seems to do ok in the dirt,havent been any where near mud yet!but have spun the guts out of it on dirt and it is holding up quite well i reckon,grips well on the tar as well,not a huge fan of the E-09 that i have on the front seems to rounded and doesnt really hook up in the sand(no real knobbies near the side wall??)whats a good front tyre for these 950/990s??
would not put a E-07 on the front in a flying fit(maybe ok for tar but not off road)
