Great Sandy NP to Eumundi

The Great Sandy National Park to the Millington Estate, Eumundi – Day 71

 

Eumundi (17 of 18)

Where you end up when it is dark, raining, you are wet and the bike seems to sink into almost every place you stop. A sandy section beside the track back south along the Cooloola Way into the pines on a little rise.

 

I had arranged to speak with Damian of Tomcat distributions (the distributor of the faulty iMC Motocom headsets) today. Damian was open to my suggestion and was happy to send a replacement headset express to me to get us by until we are able to find a solution to the fault. He is going to contact the manufacturer and see what can be done. I have offered to beta test the replacement units and I will be sending back the units that I have that failed for inspection. I am please with this positive outcome and hope I can make the headsets last a bit longer than the last ones by making some strain relief from some tubing and putting it in place over the non-existent strain relief on the helmet side of the plug.

So, in summary; I a very happy with the attitude of Damian from Tomcat distributions, we are working on a solution to the fault but I must still warn people away from the iMC Motocom HS-410 (I haven’t tested other models).

Those keeping close geographic tabs will notice I actually headed south today a bit to get to the Millington Estate just out of Eumundi. Now that I think back I believe it would have been the end of 2003 that I was last here.

The Millington Estate is a lovely place with several families are living here.

I love bamboo and they have lots here (photographs to come).

    According to my digital photographic library you were at the Millingtons in January 2005. Photo of you making didg from bamboo sent by email as evidence. Can’t say I would have been able to correct your memory without the assistance of my digital memory.
