Off The Tar to Roper Bar

At Katherine the gorge is gorgeous and thermal springs cool away a few aches

Down the middle of the Northern Territory on the freeway to Mataranka and then east.

Past Brahmin bulls and termite mounds until the white chipped strip turns dirt red

The dust hangs slow across the road and you drop back to see the pot holes

At 100kph the bars shimmy and the big springs soak up the wash always

At Roper Bar the air conditioned cabins are cool. Supper is plentiful and once again the bikes run sweet
