Thanx Andy and everyone else for a great ride.

Some pics.  First one of a truck that took out a tree and sign board.  The rest of the day was (as far as I am aware) without incident.

Awesome ride as always out that part of the world. the roads were flat, fast and dusty  :thumleft: really enjoyed getting out and having a bit of fun .

having fuel at the padstal was a very welcome relief, no more having to feather the throttle back to Ceres. Andy, let me know who I owe for the petrol

Andy thanks for lunch  :thumleft:

Bike is washed and in the garage.. I am on the couch and not moving.  :laughing4:

I hope the truck driver and passenger survived.

Cool stone house.  And the southern Tanqua has more varied landscapes than the north - quite different, and better watered.

You guys had a great day out.  Shot!
