I woke early due to the gusting winds, i got up and packed as quickly as i could. I was on the road at 7:45am heading for Port Lincoln.
The winds were getting stronger, but the day looked like it would stay dry. I followed the road past Streaky Bay, the scenery was underwhelming, not what i expected at all.
I fuelled up at 8:45 the bike took 6.2 L @ $1.54.9/L $9.60 for 116 K's, this would get me to Port Lincoln.
As i neared Port Lincoln, fields full of crops started appearing….
I arrived at Port Lincoln at 12:15, i immediately looked for a Motorbike shop, i needed some chain lube. I stumbled into Lincoln Mower & Motorcycles, looking for chain lube. I found a small can of Bel-Ray and asked if i could get a hand to lift the rear wheel of the ground to lube the chain, they gladly helped, finally having to get a jack to lift the bike as it was too heavy to lift, thanks for the great service guys.
I refuelled the bike took 17.21 L of Premium @ $1.49.9/L $25.80 for 320 K's.
The ride out of Port Lincoln was beautiful, a lovely road following the coast. Soon enough, i could see the Flinders Ranges in the distance…
I arrived at Port Augusta at 3:45, i fuelled up, the bike took 20.42 L @ $1.48.9/L (PULP) $30.41 for 349 K's.
It was a short drive to my friends home, and a great night spent with friends. Thanks Jeff and Barb..
