    Agree 100% its an awesome place.
    I lived up there (leigh Creek) for three years and rode all the areas you took images of regularly, unfortunately we don't show the visitors the best locations otherwise they would never leave.
    I did often regret going for a ride on 40+ days after dropping my 640ADV but teh biggest mistake was helping a mates brother muster his sheep in that weather.
    The plastics on both my bikes also bare the scars of the Flinders :D

    .... and bwvtom and Dogs Body and Human One and Drago and a whole lot more......... hell yeah, one of the more memorable rides of my life.
    I had just relocated from Roxby Downs and thought a swag was all that was needed, ended up building a humpy out of a blue drop sheet provided by The Cougar which kept me dry.

    The last one I went to at Pooncarie there were only 6 adventurers. Chicky , McCardigan Raff, Dirty Dennis, Clancy and me. And we did not go out to Top Hut. Group riding seems to have deminnished over the years.

    Was that when we rode to Pooncarie and then parted ways after Mungo National Park?

    We used to get quite a crowd along for the Poon ride.

    No Kippo, There were a few more that weekend. was a good ride there with you and Doc. Seemed to taper off after the Lindsay Island ride on. Also I think people did not like camping at Top Hut with all the prickles, and organising beer delivery.

    No the tiger was sold, I did the roo on the AT, first trip up the Flinders on it, bugger! I hit a few on the Tiger but all glancing blows.
    It wrote off the AT, me and the roo, I repaired the AT as it wasn't insured, had plenty of time, I was out of action for about eight months.

    Was Aaron the massive tank slapper on the KTM?
    I remember visiting someone in hospital during the ride b4 we went home but i reckon we were all worse for wear by then and memory is a bit hazy from 12 years ago.
