Great photos, thanks for sharing.

What fun are trips when nothing goes wrong?

No problem. Actually thinking of going for another ride soon. Got the rest of the week off work.

Was OK, bit I had an extra 10L in my tail bag. Fuel gets a bit hard to get out there. Had to sit in White Cliff for an hour waiting for the general store to open.

Yeah. Really need to adjust your clock out there. So many things happen slowly.

Wouldn't mind heading back some time. But keep it to more road style bikes. Adventure bikes are fine, but enduro bikes skew the ride too far.
