    I concur Mr. Fong....this weekend looks to be a bit written off:cry

    Precipitation is all well and good if it catches you out but I'm not chasing it:huh

    Got a Work Social Club Winery tour next Sun 5th, however the forecast is looking promising for another southern jaunt for the Sat(4th)......possibly with hangover in tow:evil

    May end up getting to Deep Creek after all......but I know of one or two playgrounds on the way there that need exploring.
    Book it in as a tentative if anyone's interested.

    Sat the 4th is fine with me I`m definitely in!

    I`m not working tomorrow and blackwood is about 5 minutes from me, but the amount of rain I soaked in tonight thus the trailwings makes me say I`m good for only blacktops tomorrow!


    BTW the Melrose Park GC motorcycles moves somewhere to Marion on the weekend!

    Sorry I have to work w/e's, so today was an opportunity that came together (day off + bike available).
    Just got back, Id do a ride report except I have N.F.I. where I went but did near 300km doing it. DR needs a better seat, but other than that it was great. The smell of creesote on winery posts in the morning Ahhhh

    Hi,

    I will be heading out of Adelaide and onto the nullabor in October, planning on heading to Port Augusta via the A1. I am expecting the first 100 km to be truck infested and not much fun on a gear laden 250 cc bike with a comfortable cruising speed of about 90 km/hr; am I correct or deluded? ..............a bit of local knowledge would be appreciated. I know that I can go through Gawler on a B road but I want to get out of town as quickly as I can. I will be leaving from Henley Beach. Any tips on good places (camping/caravan parks) to stay in Port Augusta?

    Thanks!

    Sooray

    Pick your day and time to ride and you will hardly see a truck, Saturdays,Wednesdays are usually pretty good and leave Adelaide just after the morning rush hour...... And when the trucks do come up on you just hit the dirt :D it's more fun that way'

    p.s. dont pick the Thursday or Friday before the long weekend unless you want to die :freaky and carry on to Whyalla and stay at the Sundowner Motel, $100 a night for pretty swish accommodation. The food there is pricey but you get a LOT for your money.
