Perth north round to Melbourne Sept 2005

Hi,

From NZ, already riden Melbourne to Perth, but had to go back to work for a few months. Looking to carry on from Perth to Darwin and round to Melbourne from early-Septmeber 2005, and sorting out the plan down the middle to see the stone. Allowing 6-8 weeks. Riding BMW R1200GS, but other bikes welcome, the more the merrier. Mostly camping but some comfort when needed, plan on a few s and a bit of a yarn as required. Let me know if you are up for a blast. Rough plan at this stage is 6-8 weeks, but maybe more or less, keen to do hard days riding when nothing interesting to slow down for, go AB's.

Hey guys

I may be interested as well? I am on a Adventure and did it from Cairns to Perth last September but want to get to melbourne. Was going to go in July but Sept may be better? Have done this trip 3 times now and have camped on the way around with some hotels and camp grounds for a shower etc. Let us know whats happening or send an email to adventurerider@hotmail.com and we could plan something? Are you guys willing to go off road?

Cheers
Ivan

Hey Don

Things look better now and I may be able to start with you on the 15th in Perth. I have to go to Mongolia for work and will be back for the start of the trip. Please send an email to my address if there is any change and give me a phone number to contact you closer to the date.

Cheers
Ivan
