The Giant Loop : July 2007

Arriving in Australia in July 2007 from India. Doing the Giant Loop, 60days time.
Anyone doing the same route (doing it anticlockwise, sydney to sydney) at the same time ?

Am thinking of doing the Aus circuit. You mentioned July but I had planned to do it a bit later because interior Oz can be very cold at night in winter.
In case you haven't been here before, the Eyre Hwy is can be freezing and very changeable. Only the top third is what I'd call warm.
What's the plan? Stay in pubs, camp out, mixture of both?
How far do you want to ride each day, rough max.
What's the route? Are you a racer or a cruiser?

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
