    The West side of the Darling was dissapointing now they've
    rebuilt the road. That wonderful bit of twin track after Bingara is gone forever..:cry

    Great Ride Report & pics Stewy, looks like a great ride, will have to get myself out onto one of these longer rides soon, the 690 might not be able to keep up with you blokes on the 990's though.

    Cheers, Sol..:thumb
