    Is anyone thinking of heading up, myself and a couple of others from Perth are looking at going. We were going to the US but was left too late to get organised so we are going on this one instead, it is finishing in Darwin on the 17th of August so we are riding over to pt Augusta then up and back down the west coast. Just wondering if anyone else was going and if they wanted to hook up at Pt Augusta possibly?

    Well looks like I’m heading up on my patmalone, everyone else has pulled out for one reason or another, changed plan so will be heading straight up the coast and back down the centre, there is a contingent heading up from Perth but they are doing 400k a day so not far enough for me so now I can set my own pace and stop where I want.

    looking at this ride too.
    As have clear to do do wtfuck I want anytime. 
    Mrs Right wants me gone for a little, plus bloody black dog bites me too -the barstead, like to leave him at home.
    Looking on, from Victoria, know most main roads to and fro, around Australia.

    Seriously looking at this ride as well.
    Broke old guy with a fucked back, an older Sportster with limited fuel range and a 6000 km round trip in mid winter.
    Hmmm, what could possibly go wrong . . .

    Cheers, Will

    Was out with the grinder and welder today attempting to adapt a fatbob type tank to the Sportster to alleviate my fuel range issues.
    Will post up progress (or lack of) as I go
