Arcadia Valley was picturesque



My Steve McQueen moment with a hand made barbed wire gate across the road without a sign or anything.



Squeezer with his feet up on the job, he could get a job with the council except he hates white fellas.



The Team at Injune having a feed, who knew what was to happen next.



On the way to Carnarvon Gorge, the one we never saw.



American Bomber ruins at the gorge, apparently he spotted a scenic helicopter flights sign and crashed, sound familiar.



How the faaark did it manage to land that way up.



Moving AVGAS Cans before the helicopter boss gets to ride the 990.



Don't have to work this hard at the council and I have aircond and foxtel in my cab !!!



The helicopter that stopped a race !!



Too much to play with no wander I keep crashing.



Springsure , top spot.



The KTM force is strong in him young skywalker. Is that your start button finger ??



Top scenery



Old fella we met and he tagged along

Turned out to be some what of a KTM spawning weekend, so much orange in one place must have been fine weather. The first time i've ever seen grown men drooling over a 690 Rally. Jolly Rodger was the worst offender

You guys rode past McAdoo when he was broken down,
come on guys, all for one here.

Anyway all you guys had to do was give Sean-0 a yell
and he would have been there.

Us 650R guys are like that

We tried..........!

It all started off well with the three of us meeting at the Jimna Fire Tower early Saturday morning. But with a string of different issue's by the time we got into Theodore we realised that the sun was dropping faster than we were riding. So we turned South and headed back down to Cracow. With a bunch of good looking female international backpackers behind the bar it was not hard to have a good night. Sunday saw us heading South again and we rolled into Chinchilla on petrol fumes, thanks to the big tank on the old GS. From there we continued on down to Goondiwindi on some of those dirt highways that they have out there. Pushed on again and watched the sun drop away as we pulled up in the main street of Texas. Monday saw Eureka Boy head for Port Mac, Nanin for Tweed and myself back to the metropolis of Beachmere. Looks like we missed a good night in Springsure, but do fear we will try again next year.

Good news on Bruce thanks Derek,


Hey Kasuyaho, don't talk out of school if you have no idea of what happened with Macadoo. No one left him behind, Sitdownman stayed with him and we waited at the next intersection 30 k up, then had a phone conversation with them about his breakdown. They decided to head back to Emerald and told us to go on, so no one got left up the creek. Any way what was your excuse again for not turning up, refresh my memeory?
