    Hi guys/gals

    Does anyone know where I can buy steel 100 mm x 1.6 mm domed end caps like the attached photo.

    Preferably in Adelaide.

    Cheers

    Cheers but not impressed with them. I rang them last Friday and they said that don't have them however they may know someone that may have them. They took my phone number and so far no phone call.

    How deep and accurate? If you have access to a press they wouldnt be too hard to make depending on how good and how many you want.

    eg. fence post caps or bike parts?

    Hi all, Bit new to all this so bare with me. Looking at doing a ride from Frances SA to Mildura, then onto Renmark, and then back down to Frances via Pinnaroo. Big desert, Little desert etc. Anybody got a good gps route, file for all, or any of this? More single the better!! 701 Huskies. x racers!! Got a Garmin Montana. Prob fuel up at Murryville if we can. First day to Mildura I can prob fig out a track, just looking for advice from there on. Cheers

    Can't help with GPS but if you get hold of the Victoria's Deserts map. Very good detail and most of the tracks in there are signed.
    Should be able to pick one up at one of your fuel stops.

    Mildura to Renmark: the Old Mail Road is far more interesting than the route via Wentworth & north of the river.

    Ah the old Frances hotel. Remember getting well and truly pissed there a few times in the old days (i'm an old Naracoorte boy).

    Fond memories of a quick ride out there for a beer and back again.

    Fuel also at Underbool (but pub there closed and up for sale). Lots of tracks in the Murray Sunset, through to Werrimull then fuel at Cullulleraine, then north to the Old Mail Road.

    Need to connect my GPS to my front aux power socket and attach a tender cable on my battery as well. Moto Adelaide quoted me around $250 for the job. Could I do better elsewhere? Thank you.

    Hi Stege if you can’t do it yourself try the Electric Bug on Torrens Rd. they possibly may be a bit cheaper?
    Is it for a BMW?
