    Day 12 Springsure to Eidsvold

    I had heard a historical story about the Wills Massacre (or ‘Cullin-La-Ringo’ massacre), as I was nursing a bit of a hangover, a delayed start maybe a good thing. 15km south of town on Wealwandangie Road is the Old Rainworth Fort, there is some interesting ye olde stuff about the place.

    The Apple IIe, indeed an historical item! (syntax error..who remembers that?)

    Who’s a pretty boy?

    Fuelled up, and headed south east towards Rolleston along the Dawson Hwy.

    [​IMG]

    Compared bike modifications with Duncan at a Rolleston service station.

    [​IMG]

    Even nursing a hangover the boredom of riding bitumen got to me. Headed south along the Fitzroy Development road, stopped to let some air out of the tyres.

    [​IMG]

    Then had to cut east through the forest to get to Theodore. However I left the zipper undone and lost my maps. Oh dear! Hmm, it’s 22km then left for 15km then right then a few more km then left or was it right..

    Navigation by the sun is no problem, but I thought taking photos of signs will help the Archaeologists when they find my body.

    [​IMG]

    Not really knowing exactly where I was, I decided to ask at this farm house. The guy gave me directions to town, I was only one valley west.

    [​IMG]

    Dawson River Weir just south of Theodore.
    Had a late lunch at a Bakery in Theodore, looked around town then south east to Cracow.

    [​IMG]

    The infamous Fred Brophy’s pub at Cracow.
    http://www.sbs.com.au/documentary/pr...ack-Fight-Club
    The original plan was to camp at Cracow and have a few quiet beers into the night. But the hangover had other ideas. After a ‘hair of the dog’ beer and look around the pub I was back on the bike heading east.

    [​IMG]

    End of the dirt, pumped tyres up to road pressures and emptied my jerry can into the tank. After a few roos had jumped out, I thought looking for a camp site may be a good idea. 10km west of Eidsvold there was a camp site, pulled in there to find Ron and Susie.

    Set up camp, had cups of tea, dinner and shared stories. They had followed me through the Wilderness Way track the day before. Ron said they had a good laugh at some of the interesting tyre tracks in the soft stuff!
    When Ron was 17, with no licence, he and a couple of mates rode British singles from Melbourne to Alice Springs. Fixing his bike along the way with bits of fencing wire after losing engine mounting bolts! We’re all soft these days.

    Day 13 Eidsvold to Hervey Bay.

    The easy ride home.

    [​IMG]

    Lazy way to set up camp

    [​IMG]

    Ron and Susie with their home made camper enjoying life. Interesting characters, great company.

    [​IMG]

    The back road from Eidsvold to Binjour saw my first snake of the trip, was going to stop but it was an Eastern Brown (http://www.australiangeographic.com.....htm?gid=11893) and thought maybe not! So stopped 100 yards up the road to take a pic of some cows, usually no dangerous unless packing heat;

    Morning coffee at Gayndah.

    [​IMG]

    Passing a war memorial at Gooroolba I noticed a floral wreath outside the memorial, put it back and read the names. Most towns have a memorial in honour of those who have served and not returned.

    Then on up the road towards Childers. Dropped in on an old whiskery grey haired bloke for a cup of tea and a yarn. Couldn’t bring myself to do the last stretch down the Bruce Hwy, so cut through Duckinwilla forest.

    Don't want to get that wrong.

    Casually rolling back home at 1pm. Greeted the family, had a shower and unpacked the bike.

    [​IMG]

    According to the trip meter, I travelled 4037 km, with a ride time of 57.29 hours, the bike averaged 4.9 l/100km at an average speed of 67.8 kmh.

    That was that then.

    Thanks Berg,
    I'm a bit busy at the moment, I'll do the post mortem in a couple of days.

    Really hard to get back into work mode after a good ride!

    Your two last photos looked familiar so I had a look at a RR I did once :lol3


    extract:


    4WDer shows me where the gaps in the log bridge are, they wanted to push the bike across but I said bugger that "I'll get my boots wet"

    [​IMG]

    This creek nearly stopped me with the strong current, but I unloaded the bike and "gave it the berries"
    The 4WDers caught up while I was repacking the bike, they walked the crossing 3 times, looked at me and then turned around. Apparently Nissan Patrols aren't that good!

    Cool pics Guy! I'll have to go out there after the next lot of summer rain to have a play!

    I have a few local Dad/Daughter trips planned with super Nat, also Father son rides if I can him off the Xbox, even hope to farm the kids out and get away with the missus.

    I'd be interested to read your ride report of your trip (is anybody going to do one?). PM me if you're coming down my way, we'll have a beer!

    Yes it was a great trip and I guess there's a great story to tell but I think the know it all wankers on here have turned me off sharing it. Although the Hay River was only a small part of the trip I sort of get a kick out of letting the self proclaimed gurus keep thinking they know it all. Im sure the majority of guys would suspect the real story is much different to what was published.
    Did you notice the guys who needed the chopper on the Walkers Crossing track never got a mention. :D

    Only because your crew are celebrities! :rofl:rofl

    As for your ride, I'd still like to read about it.

    Anyway:

    What worked and what didn't.

    [​IMG]

    Generally very happy with bike. The stepper motor was a pain. I did service it before leaving, not that it needed servicing, however I didn't really know how to protect it from the dust. I'll workout something out before the next trip.

    Cable ties are great things! I needed to be a bit more thorough in checking the bike after each days ride. Didn't even think of checking the center stand bolts.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Years ago I had an Aprilia Pegaso that would break plastic bits. So I made steel compensating brackets at the fatigue points to prevent this sort of thing. Looks like the same sort of love is needed here.

    [​IMG]

    The rock that did this was probably going to smash something really expensive or hard to fix on the bike. Easy to replace.

    <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> Midas E-09, this is after only 3100 km. Not really too sure about the wear rate. Front seemed pressure sensitive and that affected the handing noticeably. I'll try something else next time to have a comparison.

    [​IMG]

    <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> Power outlets worked out very well for charging technology at night & USB adaptor for the iStuff.
    In the box is my Starcom1 unit. This thing was the ducks guts. Music for the boring bits and UHF to keep in contact with the others. When riding solo comms with the road trains (and old mate with the broken caravan rack) was excellent.


    [​IMG]

    UniFilter 'Prefilter' tops! I originally thought I ordered two replacement filter elements, then these things turned up. First I thought WTF, then did a bit of research and it was obvious that these things were going to be handy. Purchased and installed a new standard filter element that still looks new!

    [​IMG]

    Tool box/tube thing, tops. Rack system I made for my DryRider saddle bags while worked fine, but the bags are just wrong for this bike. I'll build a better system later. Either with cut down 20ltr plastic Jerry cans or some other soft bag set up.

    18 years ago I took a KLR 560 to the cape, had a big get-off. The BarkBusters saved my hands from getting crushed, simply a must.

    [​IMG]

    <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> Worked well with the kangaroos, took a lot of time to TIG the brackets up as it is quite heavy also wiring it up was a pain in the arse. I was concerned that the corrugated road may damage the instrument mounts be it seems ok (yet to pull the mounts apart).

    [​IMG]

    Clip lock tubs worked well. stopped dust and things getting crushed.

    [​IMG]

    What a POS. My brother took this this to the States for his big ride around last year. The batteries went flat & U/S, so I purchased some new batteries, then it sort of worked at home. Once on the road the mongrel camera just would not work, Grrrr...

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Frillneck hat http://www.frillneck.com.au/catalog/index.php not a fashion item but works really well.
    Fly net, very handy.

    [​IMG]

    Body armour, didn't bin the bike. Knee guards, vehicles travelling the other way did throw up a few rocks that bounced off them.
    Camelback (work sponsored job), tops.
    Fly helmet, average. Ear plugs are good.

    [​IMG]

    <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> After losing my left thong, I thought I'd take the right thong for a tour of the outback which the thong quite enjoyed. As fate would have it, the right thong of the new pair got burnt by the exhaust between Birdsville and Windorah. So I now have a well travelled pair of thongs.
