It wasn't all a one-way street Gasman......on the Saturday night they were doing some servicing of their DR's for the trip home and needed a 17mm socket and ratchet to do their oil changes. Being an old DR owner and not having changed my tool box contents since getting the Tenere, I managed to find what they needed in a very short time. Karma.

I was talking with Gus soon after they arrived and explained the arm in a sling.re the motorbike, Flinders classic etc..
Gus calls out .."its ok he's a motorbike rider"
you know I felt that if our situation was more dire Iam sure these blokes would have set up camp and stayed with us the night ...............Top blokes..............defintely the spirit of the Classic right there

we travelled as far as these ruins and assumed they were the mine ruins (I suspect they were 5 minutes further on) insert Doh smily here



however I did suggest to Wendy that we should bring back some firewood and that we would be "ledgends" if we brought back some malle stumps...........which we did.we had to prise this sucker out the ground first tho.

they said that we must be the ones scaring all the goats away..they were here to go shooting.

I told him something along the lines of toughen up princess...........
actually a fairly special ride was organize by the Doc for a select few of them and I told him and Nick not to miss it.!

I spent the morning wandering around the camp, getting to know Trev and one or two others a bit more, plus I took a few more pics to remember the weekend by.

Sounds like you might have been converted Adrian.....

Just make sure that you maintain some access to a lighter quicker bike for those times when you want to hit the PAR's and have a ball with the throttle.

Well done mate, and some great photography of that very special part of SA...
