    if you want slim / small racks go adventure spec or rally raid uk

    if you want larger framed racks go the ride adv ones

    that would be my picks anyway

    i wouldn't be worried about loading plastics up for pub stay overnighters with clothes and spares.

    Camping and loaded fuel probably different

    Hmm.. rrrrrr... I don’t have one of those pics..

    Trying to imagine your ride through there. Where you might have gone.
    So, your move, do you have the T7 here.

    Sounds like a good morning ride. :thumb
    i wish I still lived Northside. I miss living at Arana Hills for quick rides. :ricky
    All MacGregor has for quick rides are speed bumps. :lol3

    And yep it’s nice in there.. when it’s nice.
    I’ve turned around on the GSA twice in there, coming in from Laceys Creek / range Rd to head north.
    The GSA is a pig to turn around when it’s rough.
    It won’t be going back, it’s just easier on the DR to go exploring and I can pick it back up.
    And it’s worse, if I have to go slow on the GSA with opposite direction 4wd traffic.

    sticky, or slippery or chopped up for sure, it has it all some days in there.
    I had a big off on my Dr Big way back in the day, in there.
    Scared the shit out of me. Seriously spooked.
    I thought me and bike were just gonna go straight off the side and down a big drop to game over.
    A nasty 10 second slide, stopped me riding dirt for about 10 years. Shoulda just let go of the bike.
    Live and learn. Eventually.

    9846km the front Pirelli Scorpion STR has finally lost a bit of shape with some uneven wear, twice in a week now I have felt the front give a little slip in a wet twistie, never done it before, bloody good all round tyre, much better than I was expecting them to be

    Mate put Anakee wild on 2 weeks ago. Scrubbed them in but couldn't get grip on wet tar. Spun the rear in 4th gear. He is no slouch on a bike. I think they are heading for land fill.

    Battleaxe AX41 is supposed to be good on wet tar as well as off road.
    Haven't used one yet though.
    Dunlop Mission may be another contender for the front. Also the Karoo Street depending on how much and what type of offroading you are doing.
