I have tried the trip two time so far, first time I did not complete trip, 2nd time I did and spend 3 nights at very top at a primitive camp site area. I traveled alone on a KTM and carried all that I needed (about 80lbs)to do trip and maintain bike. It is not difficutl to do as there are alot of other riders and lots of cars, truck etc! Oh! lot of deep sand and some deep rivers also.
I will not be in Australia till late september or early October or I would join you. Thanks
