hi sly fox heading to oz are we nice one mate, first up the gibb river road in the dry season there are only a few river crossings , but mainly it,s the corrugations that get to you , they do sometime,s grade it it,s fabulous area and well worth spending some time there, cape york is another area where you can spend plenty of time the thing is not to rush it, there is not to much deep sand, there are a few different tracks up there and it,s worth waiting till you are in the area before you decide whitch one to go up as the 4x4,s chew them up quite a bit and some are worse than others , 1 thing i can recomend is fit the best tubes you can lay your hand,s on i got some super heavy duty one,s from michelin whitch i think i could have used with out tires they were that thick ,not cheap thought but worth their weight in gold i have been throuth the central road and the old gunnbarrel ,althought i am not sure if the old gunnbarrel is still open or still used as much , the central road is a long dusty high way in the bush i have seen mcaffettys, coache,s going up it !!!
glad to see you are using a xt600 god,s own chariot, well that might be a little exaggerated !! in good condition and properly serviced you should not have to many drama,s look on this site for all you need to know about them more than i could ever tell you well mate i am heading back to oz in jan hope fully i have a ratty old ttr600 in perth whitch i am going to be heading out to the simpson and a few other track,s when it cools down a bit if you fancy a yarn drop me a call on 07718905005 i am over at gatwick cheers mate
