    Yeah had to cut out all the good singly bits after I got some grass on my header and it caught fire :eek1 , those tracks don't get used much and I thought that now that its dried out a bit would be a good time to cut some trail but too risky at the moment, will wait for some rain methinks.

    Just got back from some good southern hospitality. Met up with Bubba for a run from the southern suburbs down through all the best roads to Goolwa. Hit the beach for a run to the mouth. Then off through some more beautiful country to mount barker.

    From their we parted ways, and I knocked out another 200 km to get home. 500 km all up for me today, and I met a great bloke in Bubba.

    Loving life!

    Speed Week's on 2013 and I want to go and watch.

    What's the spectator value? good or otherwise?

    Do you have to take a heap of supplies? The website paints it pretty good.

    The road out to the Eyre Highway Ceduna way, any good?

    Cheers Folks!

    Hey Barnacle Bill

    I have been to Lake Gardner however not during Speed Week.

    I rode west to Kimba then wandered tracks north to Gawler Ranges National Park. We entered the Park at Paney Homestead, headed up through the park then on to Lake Gardner. We left Lake Gardner and went home via Mt Ive Station through to Iron Knob. It was one of my best trips.

    There's not much if any services north of Kimba with the exception of Mt Ive and some rainwater tanks in the park which I wouldn't rely on.

    The tracks were mildly technical in a few places with some sand in places of mild to medium difficultly.

    Make sure that you watch Worlds Fastest Indian before you go! Have a great trip!!

    Thanks PBee, thanks Arborsmarty.

    I did open a thread on the main page, haven't heard a cracker at this stage, maybe tonight when the pilgrims return from Mecca.

    But good to get some knowledge from the locals.

    Cheers Lads
