Day 14 continued Salt water crocodiles were in the rivers and waterways in the Litchfield Park. So we headed to the Florence Falls picnic area car park. Changed to thongs and board shorts. There were 160 steps to climb, return walk of 1.6km. Then we were at the plunge pool. No crocs in the Florence Fall pool. There were small fishes in the waters feeding on my dead foot skin. Free beauty session. Yeah. Swimming to the bottom of the water falls cleared all the road train fume in my lungs. Feeling great. Mark gathered the strength and walked up the rock to take nice photos. And we were happy to stay in the pool. We had a fun time in the park. Enjoyed more twisty roads in the NP before hitting the straights on the Stuart Highway again going south in the afternoon. When I pushed above 130km/h on the Stuart, the front began to vibrate. Not violently but not good not good. I checked the discs and they were straight. the brake calipers were tight. The forks were still sturdy. The front was a bit heavy for me to lift and rock it. But I thought it could be the wheel balancing or the head bearings. We were a few hours from Darwin. I called Cyclone. Jason there again was not keen. Were all people in Darwin so relaxed? As I probably sounded serious on the phone. He casually asked me to find a car tyre shop nearby for help. OK that was new to me. I had been riding for almost 30 years and never heard of this kind of advice. Perhaps there were some bush mechanic knowledge for a tough old bird like me to learn. Well the phone call did not end well even though no party was literally rude. Well we needed to think. I employed the limp mode i.e. no more than 125km/h hehehe until we reached Katherine. We located a Honda bike/ATV shops there but it had already closed for the day. So I booked a nearby Ibis Styles Hotel so that I could check into the bike shop the next morning. The Ibis Styles in Alice Springs was great. However this Ibis Styles Katherine was not. It had bad bugs. Really! Nothing to do with my bad wheel. The lady owner in Halls Creek Motel confirmed this later. After a slightly restless night, Robbie and I waited for the Honda/Polaris shop to open in the morning. It was called R&M Motorcycles. I met the boss, his wife and son there. Forgot his name, my bad. If you need help near Katherine, please see them. Within 30 mins the trouble is resolved for a tiny fee. Yes the wheel balance was way off. Stuart Highway here I came again! There was no other BMW Motorrad dealer in the whole NT. I paid $1,587 to Cyclone for a service and a set of Metzler. Much more expensive than what I paid in Sydney. They charged higher. I understood. Why not. My career is around the $ sign the whole life. Everything is basically commercial these day. However it was the part they did not balance the wheel probably after putting on new tyres cum car tyre shop advice which I did not appreciate. Would I recommend them for other GS riders? Instead I would ask whether you can manage the bike until Perth. Now please no more bed bugs tonight.
