Title: Dodging kangaroos, borders and Sheila’s
Post by: tau on August 24, 2021, 03:29:14 am
So I will start a ride from Brisbane on Sunday.

The big goal is to do a Solo Simpson desert crossing. However I have to be out of a hotspot for 14 days before Northern Territory will allow me in.

So I will ride west to Carnarvon National park then north and do the Creb track and then to Cape York, the most northern point of Australia. By then I should be allowed into NT so I i will go south and cross the Simpson desert.

All my riding gear, tools, gps and luggage items is still in storage in South Africa.

I had to buy all of it again .

So the kit
Yamaha T7 tenere
Bashplate B&B
Luggage rack B&B
Bark buster handgaurds

And then a dry bag setup.
Got a brand new 11.4 liter Giant Loop fuel bladder on Gumtree.

For the Simpson crossing I will need 40 liters fuel, 10-16 liter water and food.

So I will tru pack as light as possible, whilst still having enough gear, clothes and food to enjoy the rest of the journey.

It will be a 9000-10000 km round trip.

You get going quick Tau. We were going to go to Carnarvon and had second thoughts about it. Bit basic for the wife. Did a 600km adventure ride over the weekend with an overnight at the Bowen River Hotel which was quite magical. We were there at the same night as the Postie bike charity ride. You should have seen the back up vehicles and spare bikes.  Saw quite a few groups of deer along the Bowen river which were not skittish at all. I thought they would be quite gun shy around Collinsville.

Sterkte Tau, dis blykbaar nogal 'n tawwe ene.

Ek het so paar jaar terug 'n Auzzie en sy vrou ontmoet in Mozambiek wat ook die Simpson gekruis het.

Hulle het hul petrol op seker plekke laat begrawe en dit gekry met die verby gaan - nie daai tyd vir hulle gevra hoekom hulle dit so gedoen het nie..

My genooi om te kom kuier dan doen ons die trip op DR650's, maar intussen het hulle verhuis na Kanada.

Ek sien uit na die RR  :thumleft:

Toe ek amper klaar is en net laaste paneel wil terug sit besef ek dat ek nooit hooflig plug reg geroute het nie en moes weer alles strip.

Ek is helemal oorlaai.

Ek het daai fancy freezedry kos op sale gekoop en moet warem klere vir Woestyn pak.

Ek sal myself ligter eet darem is die eeste week van die trip net teer en grondpad.

Ek het ou op advrider ontmoet en hy het by my in Suid Afrika kom bly en Nam, Botswana en Suid Africa getoer. Ek bly tans by hom en hy gaan saam met my die eerste paar dae toer met sy Suzuki Bergman 650 scooter.

Hy is al oor die węreld met hulle en het 3. Hy het al ander adv bikes gehad, maar verkies sy scooters!!! So aan die begin sal die spoed en tegniese ry minimaal wees.

My partner het net 20 km saam gery op grondpad toe sę hy hy wil omdraai. Hy was al om die aarde met sy scooter, maar die ouderdom vang hom nou sę hy. Hy is toe tergna Injune.

Ek is toe in die park in en het so lekker draai gery in die ligte sand paaidtjies. Dit het later kol kol soos die Kaudum paaidtjies gelyk, net nie sulke duk sand nie.

Could you not at least pushed your bike over on either side and rolled around in the dust a bit to take some of the Noob look off?

So paaie loop deu plase, maar daar is selde ‘n gang so beeste loop in pad.

Kangaroos is ook vroeg ogge d en vanaf 14:30 ‘n risiko. Die mannetjie Red Kangaroo is soos ‘n 14 jarige koshuisklong size.

Na Morunbah raak die pad genadiglik weer grond. Lekker grond. Die T7 word vir die eerstekeer in haar lewe hard gery. Ek teken elke draai in met my 18” kwas. Perfekte in en uitgangs wonde lę op elke kurwe. Die genot is groot.

Day 5
Burdekin to Mission Beach

I wake up to 100 x fruit batts going crazy

Daai is nie druiwe trosse nie is jack russel grote vlęrmuise.

I wake up and start packing.

My ride starts out on glorious gravel to some tar. And then amazing gravel and jeep track

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210903/1425b1be857e3b33b995aed69a834179.jpg)

I did 68 km through the Townsville field artillery range. Road into 2 “military checkpoints “ the troepies got a lekker skrik when they witnessed the RSA flag

These narrow gravel tracks was winding and swooping along. The little twin was singing along for the first time in our relationship drawing perfect line with her spinning rear wheel in and out of corners. I was an artist and the D606 my brush.

I might be a fat ugly bastard, but I can ride a scooter I on mildly gravel covered dirt tracks , I realised.

And the …. I almost got taken out by an Ostrich Lite. Or also know as an Emu. They run horizontal when they skrik. I also skrikked.

The next minute at 193 km my fuel light goes on

I have been way too generous with the throttle and find myself 80 km from the closest servo (Aussie for petrol station)


I stop to have a once over the bike at around 210 km and find my exhaust is hanging loose.

Seems someone installed the insert the wrong way around. I swap the busing around and tighten the bolt. The forest is now gloriously thick. I am getting closer to my old home.

Today is a rest day and washing and service day.




I got some oil and a oil filter from Yamaha. The bike is on 7400 km now. Mostly me commuting in Brisbane. However I won’t get to a place I can service before 10 000 km. The filter was only due at 10 000 km but I like to keep oil and filters fresh in a wet clutch bike. The oil that came out was still clear so all good.

Good man, Great Northern Original. Had a man in my chair recently with multiple fractures in his leg. He'd taken out a Cassowary (yet to come on your trip) with a KTM250. Bird was fine but they also do the stupid thing of running into your path. They are meant to be endangered and I'm not bloody surprised!

So left my old “hometown” for 6 months yesterday.

For so long this was where I would have settled down.

Start a new life raise my kids. Unfortunately my family missed family and Friends too much.

Oh and it rained, alot 3500 mm from Jan - May this year.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210904/e39a41e599eac1e4121e5cf945a531ad.jpg)

It was rather emotional for me leaving Mission Beach this morning.

My wife and kids is far, far away back in Africa and we had many great memories here.

It pissed down so I couldn’t stop for pictures.

So here is some from the area during our time here.

Ek ry tot by my pel in Mareeba. Ek Landbouskool klasmaat en yster Jp.

Vandag vertrek ek vir Cape York. Ongelukkig is die CREB track toe hy het 80 mm reën eergister gekry.

Tau ek voel jou pyn om n droom te he vir n veilige hawe vir jou gesin.
Ek was stomgeslaan vir n oomblik om te hoor julle kom terug na al die pyn en drama waardeur n mens gaan om te immigreer, want dis nie n maklike proses nie met baie geduld en papierwerk.
n Paar mense naby my het daardie stap geneem en soms was hul behoorlik gatvol vir die proses.

Maar ek het nou al n paar keer vir n rukkie kom stilstaan in die lewe en wonder oor wat is regtig dit wat mens gelukkig maak. Ek skat dit is mens se familie en vriende in geheel, en dit is wat maak dat ek self nooit n daadwerklike poging aangewend het om n groen-kaart te probeer kry en te immigreer nie.

Ek se altyd mens kan enige plek gelukkig wees, dis n kopding so kom maar terug SA toe en geniet hom weer soos van ouds!

Baie sterkte en gebiet die trip  :thumleft:

Arme bike.

Het vandag 512 km in 5.5 ure gedoen met 2 x brandstof stoppe. Die grondpaai hier in die noorde is iets vreeslik.

Jy kry Roadtrain wat 4 waens sleep op die paaie en honderde 4x4 en trailers.

They certainly make a big deal of the old telegraph track. The original telegraph line was only about 1.8m high. There was no traffic to pass underneath and that height was convenient for a man on a camel to do repairs and maintenance. The pictures you posted earlier of your time in Mission Beach I'm sure would have had a lot of members looking at the Australian Visa page but the coral trout your son was holding would also be the envy of a lot of Airlie Beach locals, they are pretty well fished out here in the Whitsundays. 

PS: They call Cape York "going to the tip" here just like we "go to the roof" but I often have to work out if they are going North or going to the rubbish dump.

Yes Ian it is a great track. They said it will take met 2-5 days. I started the OTT at 10:48 and finished at 15:30 at Nolans which is the last crossing. Cars flooding and damaging motors is coming.

I am just keeping it constant. Need a tyre now.

Gister was ‘n rowwe 610 km .

Vandag was die verste crossing wat ek nog tussen twee dorpe gedoen het.

Die bekende Exchange hotel in Coen. Iemand het jare terug die S op die dak bygesit.

Hulle los hom nou so.

Gister was net 420 km


Soos genoem kort ek ‘n tyre, ek bel dlke bike en tyre shop in 1000 km radius niemand het iets nie.

Teen 09:30 verlaat ek Normanton en ry suid.

Ek sal daar besluit wat ek maak.

Sien die Oom langs pad met 2 papwiele. Ek stop en vra of ek kan help. Ek vra of hy vęr van die huis is?

“ yes mate about 100 km, but we are still on the property”.

Nou hoe groot is die property? Nee die een is 700 000 ha

Ooo en hoeveel bees het julle maatskappye?

So 25000 per farming unit.

Hy dink seker ek is dom want die naam staan op trok en sy hemp….

I've bought a lot of stuff from MXstore. Fast delivery here. Got a few tyres from Moto Tyre Warehouse, also quick and they put a packet of sweets in with the tyre. THrottle Jockey, you cannot believe the tip top condition that they keep the gravel roads in here, you can power slide through corners all day long (and you won't see a cop out there.)

Vanoggend die 340 km vinnig afgedraf asof dit nou min is na die paar groot dae. Baie droog en mense voer bees.

Bai soos suide van Nam tipe veld en bos wat bees nie eet nie, dan eweskielik kry jy ‘n rivier wat sommer nog loop en jou boots nat maak in die stof węreld, is seker grootste verskil van hier en Afrika. Water is nie so groot probleem nie.

Laaste stuk grondpad was eerste swart ysterklip soos tankwa en my poephol het omtrek geknyp vir papwiele kry.

Land in Mt. Isa en gaan reguit na die bikeshop wat nie tyres het nie, want ek kort chain lube.

Nee hulle het nog baie agter in stoor.

Onthou julle ons gesprek Donderdag oggend en toe sę julle dat julle net Heidenhau K60 of Mt21 120 in stock het?

Ja.

Ok wat kos chainlube

$26

Ok gee my blik

Gaan deur till gee me E pos masjien $31.

Ek vra en nou ?

Jammer sy was verkeerd eerstekeer.

Eenvoudig verby. Ek het hulle nie eers in Afrikkans gevloek nie, net die ou en su vrou in die oë gekyk en gesę “ you are real special “

Elkgeval so kom ek by Mt. Isa caravan park en my E-09 wag vir my en ‘n kamplek.

Mxstore service is great. 24 hrs after I ordered the tyre arrived in Mt. Isa!!!!

The roads around these areas are rough, not like northern and central Queensland. Not the upkeep, but just the type of soil en rocks.

The area is copper mining do lots of mines and 4-6 trailer Roadtrains on gravel

Yes the service is shocking contacted 3 companies none have replied with quotes.

Sold the bike for $500 more than I paid, so not complaining. As not many times in life 11000 km on a bike is only fuel and tyres

Just rode it around the Gold Coast and Surfers paradise for the last time.

Sorry was bietjie besig.
Mt.Isa na Gemtree, Northern Territory.

Ek mag eers vandag oor die grens na die NT gaan oor die 14 dae ex Brisbane reël vir Covid.

Ek spring weg uit Mt. Isa na ‘n foto wat verduidelik waar die T7 hom aantref in die advbike rankings

Die grondpaaie raak vinnig grof en ek besef hier is nou klip ook. Die nuwe E 09 agter is baie stiller as die D606 en gee my verseker beter beheer in die draaie. Dit voel ook bekend, ek het hulle op my HP2 en my Africa Twin 1000 het dit ook opgehad.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210929/d2da12386ddf682b7e799fe605a905e3.jpg)

Groot was my verbasing om te sien dit was Webb's wat die plek mak gemaak het en wie se oorspronklike huis dit was.

Ek het die 160km na Alice springs sommer vinnig afgelę, aangesien NT se spoed limiet 130km/h is. My voorband was nou vreeslik heel and toe geloop en het my mal gehop. Ek het by Yamaha in Alice spring vir my 'n vars nuwe Mt21 opgesit en vir die eerstekeer in my lewe 'n band laat balanseer..... dit maak nogals 'n verskil. Wel die 20 km teer wat ek gery het met hom!!!

Een van die redes waarom ek Alice Springs wou besoek is oor die Transport museam wat hier is. Een van my werk se oudste trokke wat sopas oorgedoen is was ook hier uitgestal....

Ek kon nie alles afneem nie, en het maar die trokke wat vir my oulik was afgeneem.

Hierdie ou vastebak met die Rolls Royce motor in was gebruik om aflewerings in die oitback te doen, ek dink as hy kan praat sal jy hoor van baie wag by verspoelde paaie en vassit in modder.

Lindsay Brothers is ons grootste kompetiesie in die verkoel vervoer van piesangs en gevriesde kosse, tog werk ons aam met hulle uit Suid Australia en Wes Australia. Hierdie trok het 4 miljoen kilometers al gedoen en dit op shuttle tussen Brisbane en Sydney.

Caterpillar for life!!!

Hierdie Daycab trokkie met sy monster wiele word gebruik om 5 x semi's in myne te sleep vanaf die pit na die crusher/screening plants.

Ek het bietjie teveel tyd in ALice Spring spandeer en is eers 1 uur daar weg. Net buite die dorp sien ek die lughawe en al die Singapore Air, Quantas ens wie hulle vliegtuie hier berg in die woestyn.

Die GPS wou my nie toelaat om op die pad direk tussen Alice Springs en Finke te ry nie....ek moes iets snaaks verwag het.

Ek luister mos maar min vir elektroniese rigting aanwysers en vat toe die pad inelkgeval.
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211005/af003dccd8e46652b53b98c39f36aa09.jpg)
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211005/1c8c7a24c31aa858a36eeba39e4e64a0.jpg)

Eers loop die swakkerige grondpad net langs die Finke desert race se baan ek het so hier en daar op die baan gegaan, maar die whoops en bagasie het nie so lekker saamgespeel nie.

Later was die pad so sleg en sanderig dat ek liewers op die baan gery het. Ek het dit vreeslik genie.... so baie dat ek op 244km gaan staan het sonder brandstof. Nou ek kan gemaklik 300km op 'n tenk kry en het net toevallig die 10liter kannetjie wat ek die ogend gekoop het volgemaak om te sien hoeveel petrol ek in hom in kan force, gelukkig anders sou ek teen die pad gestaan het.
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211005/095aea09c58f80cc6e7bf60d38123d4a.jpg)

Die pad is gestrooi met uitlaatstesel, skokbrekers, running boards etc. Ek dink baie mense kom jaag die Finke roete en dan spring hulle op die pad en verwoes die ook.
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211005/b151834990a41facc17e4bba5bc340ea.jpg)

Die resies baan loop al langs die grondpad en is 240km se whoop sen duine, my tipe ry.

Jy het my voorgespring Chris, ek wou ook kommentaar lewer op die Mack.
Hier hardloop nog baie van daardie Mck modelle, ek sien hulle daagliks.
In Amerika sterf n trok nie maklik nie, hulle hou hom aan die lewe!!

Die Kenworth fotos het my nou amper laat gryp na n lappie  :drif:

So jammer Mack het saam Volvo in die kooi gespring, al die nuwe Mack's hier is auto....dis soos om n man se neute te verwyder.
Ek soek my Eaton fuller ratkas en wil self ratte ruil.

Hierdie is 'n baie interessante trip sover.
Jy doen lang afstande elke dag.....'n baie gepaste manier om van die T700 afskeid te neem
