    Well the misses has been looking at the pics from the first WA run, and asked, when are we going??
    So I said we went at a good time in April, so why don't we do it around that time again??
    So to give people a good heads up, to start saving (if they want to come).....
    April 2018 is the start. Basically going to the same places....except the rock....and doing the bottom of WA this time and also the  Eyre Peninsula in SA
    The ride this year with Mickle and China, made me realise how stunning this country is, and she needs to see it as well...... on the back of a bike is even better

    I know its a long way off.........but if you have  ever thought about doing it, you should
    Ill keep you Posted

    Its also posted in the "other" forum

    We have been throwing around some ideas with this ride and 1 suggestion is to head up through NSW / QLD this time, this ride will

    also require more time than 21 days, minimum of 28 i am guessing. Going this way will give us a complete lap of the map.

    Its was a bugger for you guys this year to have to cut short and bypass the S/W coast of WA, agree with Mickle 4 weeks or more on the trail.

    Kiwi,

    You are a trouble maker.  Count me in regardless of where we all decide to go.

    I'm thinking a lap starting up the East coast.  We can pickup riders along the way.  Chriso in Canberra.  Nonads in Townsville.  Halzie in Darwin.  Keith and Trev in Perth.

    4 to 5 weeks.  Minimal camping.  Bank on around $200 camping or $300 pub/motel per day like last time, plus a full service ($450) and maybe a set of tyres ($600).

     

     Yep......sounds like a plan........bring on 2018......we'll have a beer over summer, talk and make it a goer..........

    Mr Gnoo.  We will get you home the next day just like last time

    For those that don't know. Gnoo was coming only for the first night in Burra SA but ended up going one more day at a time all the way to Darwin. Fucking legend.

     Hi guys, Just had a look at my trip and i took 33 days.  . Left NSW Central Coast, went up as far as Ingham, as it was torrential rain at Cairns, Then across to Hughendon, then straight across to Mt Isa, and well the Coast the rest of the way.  This included, 2 nights Broome,  3 nights Perth, 2 nights Albany, 2 nights in Melbourne.
