I'm doing the same trip. Leaving for Perth tomorrow and will be in Perth on the 11th. Heading back the 12th and home by the 18th. Should be a good trip - providing the cyclone disappears. Presently just off the southwest coast, but then what's a journay without a little adventure???
I'm in Wodonga, a little north of Melbourne, but if I can help in any way give me a shout and we'll see what we can do. Need a bed I'm sure we could sort it if required.
If I don't see you / hear from you have a fantastic trip - be safe
Freddy I crossed the Simpson, West to East in a 4x4 around 3 years ago and you will certainly not be lonely. As a matter of fact the biggest danger is a head on collision at the top of the dunes with a vehicle coming the other way. Get off the French Line (the main track) as soon as you can and get on the Rig Road, a lesser used route. I get out in 4x4 to do the dirt stuff and a CBR1100XX for the black top. I was in Surrey, Vancouver in September, is this the Surrey you are from? Give me some warning when you head this way and we will catch up and empty a few cans.
hi chaps , sorry to miss you rian ,have a good run over the nularbor, a lot of people don,t like that run but i love it , probably for all the reasons lots of other people don,t , like wide empty open spaces and no one else around, as i come from the surrey next to london (loxsmith) so not the one in canada, if i manage to get up to your next of the woods loxsmith i will drop you a line in advance , cheers for the info on the simpsom, laters fredddo
I'm now in Perth (11th Jan today). The chap I rode across (NSW to Perth) with has had a catalogue of problems and putting it simply the bike he has will not make it back, so if you are still in Perth get a note back here asap as I will be heading back in the next couple of days - circumstances permitting.
Let me know - thanks
add to this the fact that I too come from a little place the other side of the world - yorkshire originally, but the last ten years in Bedford!! So we'd have something else in common too.
no worries mate, only i think you will be long gone by the time i get there as i actually land in perth on the 20th, and have to bugger about with my bike first, have a good trip back over . cheers freddy
