    Eager to read the rest.

    Those last 3 photos are from the road through out Southern neighbours farm. Lots of good riding up here. The shearing shed looks familiar but I just can't place it.

    Cheers

    Crashes, hospital trip, close call, good luck and (damaged) bikes.

    And it's not the Flinders this time of year without ice on the seat in the morning on your bike.

    All for this as it is a genuine life saver! But $1680 for 45 over the limit??? That's revenue raising....

    Yep, they did mention that. It is revenue raising.

    Disclaimer: I don't have a mobile or any friends to speak to on one.

    Only women should be allowed to use mobile phones while driving as they can multitask and men can't.

    Seriously, how is talking on a mobile any more distracting than talking to a passenger while driving with one hand? At least while talking on a phone you wouldn't be expected to look at the person you're talking to occasionally.

    If in-car phones are permitted but hand-held not, why is the penalty for driving one-handed not the same as driving while on a mobile?

    I can see that checking who's ringing or texting would be distracting.

    @OzJuJu Yep, me and the Mrs are heading up Friday, stopping overnight somewhere on the way and then off to Farina for Saturday night.

    Going to try to get to Willow Waters near Cradock. Ive heard that there is a nice camping spot there.

    All depending on the road condition, last time we went down a dirt road up in that area it didnt turn out well. We dropped the big girl and had to turn back as the road was clay topped and the front wheel got clogged with mud.

    Ive posted this pic before but one more time wont hurt. Just out of Hawker.

    I see where you went wrong... the front wheel isn't supposed to touch the ground ;)

    Bike is packed ready for an early-ish start in the morning, once things defrost a bit.

    Good luck @Beet at Robertstown, ride safe.

    A third wheel like a single wheeled trailer? :hmmmmm

    Thanx redcat for the info, hopefully will beat the crowds and get a good spot.
