The Frenchman’s Line track is a nice ride although I was having to go very slowly to avoid getting thrown off my bike. Also my fuel economy is very bad at the moment. Its up to 8L/100km and above at times so I am having to carry fuel for even short legs. I don’t know what is causing it. Perhaps as the engine wears more it is becoming less efficient. I have also noted that my thermostat is acting oddly, staying more and more toward cold. I think it might be failing too. Perhaps this is contributing to the high fuel consumption.
This crossing was challenging and took a few hours what with lunch and waiting for a few 4wds to cross first.
Shortly after this we said our farewells to Chris as he had already visited Lockhart River and Chill Beach.
Its been great riding together. We have really appreciated your company.
