    Might be easier to load if you don't have to put it on top.

    Any details on the spare tire carrier?

    That looks like a neat setup!

    Thanks again Dan!
    Yes the idea for mounting the spare came from Jesse James' rig that I came across online. I didnt relish the thought of putting that mass 3.5 m above the ground. It's mounted on an arm with winch operation to the ground.

    Has anyone done the run from the east to west coast of Fraser Is from The Pinnacles to Woralie Creek. Road looks good for the first 3 k's. Problem is 3.7 m height. I'll recce it tomorrow on the bike

    IMG_3439.jpgIMG_8991.jpgShould have done what I said, but after recce on foot for 3 Kms all seemed good until we reached the rain forest. Road up to Knifeblade Sandblow is very good but from there it's not really suited for an elephant EV, sorry MAN. Didn't spot the tree root and voila, broke the central mount block on the AIR CTI on the rear wheel. Shouldn't be hard to fix, IF I HAD THE PART. Made it to Lake Allom and viewed turtles but not game to proceed to Woralie Creek.
