Well bikes are loaded for the 500km drive to the Flinders Ranges, been a lot of rain up that way with some roads closed & we may have to change the schedule. Should be plenty of water in the creeks for added fun.

7 of us going:

Me TTR

Dave TTR

Derek TTR

John KLX250

Gary KLX450 or DRZ400

Rob DRZ400

Janos WR426

Will post photos when I get back in a week, next to no phone coverage up there either.

I like the fork-stops for trailering without loading up the suspension too much. Never seen those for sale before!
Ride safe, take pictures,
Simon.

 They come in several lengths & some are adjustable, the ones in the photo are good as they can't slip back with the wings, it's 500kms each way & on some rough roads plus I don't want a bike to come loose.

 Cheers mate, fairly bike fit for my age & it was a heap of fun, I did 840kms on the TTR riding like this from Tuesday to Sat, they had over 100mm of rain the days before we got there to add to the enjoyment.  Perfect conditions

Terry

We had one bike lock up, the WR426 dropped a valve, lucky it was on the way back from the mine & took my mate almost 6 hours to pick it it in a 4x4...it if broke in Buggery gorge it would be best to tow it out with another bike

We love our trips up there, dual sport heaven
