Desert ride to Perth
In May I'm heading off from Melbourne to Perth. I'm going via Adelaide to the Flinders ranges then up the Oodnadatta track to Oodnadatta, follow the Old Ghan route through Finke to Alice Springs, tour the Merannie Loop to Uluru, then down the Great Central Rd to Laverton, Kalgoorlie and Perth. I'm not bragging - just after some input from anyone who's done any of these routes.
I'm on a GS Adv and well aware of the water/fuel requirements (born and bred in the bush) for the trip. I'm set up with GPS and will rent a sat phone from Adelaide to Perth (is there a cheaper alternative to renting). Also carrying a EPIRB, 15L water, extra 20L fuel, tyre repair kits and pump, plus all camping, cooking, food, clothes, etc.
I know it's a load - upgraded the suspension to HD Ohlins - but with me on the bike, I'm just under the Max. load rating of 470kg gross limit.
Intend to take as long as it takes, no rush, so anyone welcome to join in.
Will be heading up to Broome after Perth to tour across the top end to Cape York.
