A Ride to Mt Augustus

By Guy Davies

Watch out for killer roos!
I left for Mt Augustus, the start of my annual leave on Sunday, learnt off-road riding very quickly, otherwise would have been eating red dirt with a few broken bones. Its 500k’s of dirt between Meekathara and Gascoyne Junction.

1982 BMW R100 at Mt Augustus.
Arrived there Monday arvo, thought, stuff climbing this, so I did the next best thing and brought a stubby holder that said I had climbed it - much easier. Headed back Tuesday, overshot one corner, stayed upright, arrived home Wednesday arvo.
