Raman got the required parts from town. I had asked him to get some bar risers for me. The guy at the Kawasaki dealer assured Raman they were the right ones. They won’t fit. Called them up and they were all excuses (the computer system was down, they guy is only young etc). They didn’t want to find a solution. I eventually got them to agree to give me a refund and pay for return postage. Before I sent them however we discovered the Yam dealer had done the same thing with Raman’s sprocket. They guy had looked it up in a book and still got it wrong. So Raman headed back into Mackay and returned them both and got the right sprocket. Apparently this is a real problem as most of the semi-intelligent people are getting high paid jobs in mining so many of the people employed in town are the ones that didn’t managed to get the higher paid jobs. Might have just been bad luck but it doesn’t seem like it was after talking with a few of the local farmer friends of Rick’s.
Anyway we did finally head off.
It was pretty late so we headed for Eungella Dam again.
This time we camped at the lookout.
