The 400 would have been nice and light, but the fuel range of the tenere probably would have been handy.
Not sure I would want to push the Tenere through some of those creek crossings though! The 400 was the perfect bike for this trip being that nearly all of it was dirt.

What a read! Thanks for an awesome RR. I hope to be there about the same time next year and been wondering what places like the Gibb River road were like. I can't wait!

better late than never

Loved your RR, I just got up to it in the list. How many years will I need to ride in the dirt before I could possibly achieve such an awesome ride!?

And if you are in touch with the gent on the berg, I fancy his headlamp/blinker setup... Is that store bought or custom?

Thanks again for the epic story.

Chris
