'tooo much weight' - the teacher at AB riding school would have given you and your mate detention.


Hey Sno, I will go and stand in the corner as well

Fuel economy

My riding partner showed his superior skill by getting his gs800 down the track with the same fuel reserves but 40l of water.
The DRZ averaged 5.7L/100km , the racks I had made for the DRZ were designed to strengthen the sub frame and bolted low onto the main frame just back from the foot pegs, also replaced all the sub frame bolts with high tensile.

Both bikes were faultless despite plenty of slow offs in the soft sand.
Would like to see a photo of the 950se with 80L that sounds like hard work!!

Have done the Simpson a few times now and the CSR makes the Simpson look like a walk in the park
---- teach will have u top of the class!!!

and your thinking of doing an unsupported ride in '15. My head is starting to spin. Might get in touch.

The rally bash plate to protect your ankles v's termi mounds - good idea

(was your mate injured by those termi terrorists?)

Yep Den,

Hear what your saying - covering as many possibilities.

Minimum water 15ltr on top half of CSR.

D Doc - 6ltr down from previous trip from 18ltr.

Suppose we all calculate risk against the variables. Temp at the time -- how hard the rider is working and sweating.

Did a ride south of the Kalahari desert in Namibia a few years ago in late summer (dumb thing to do). I remember drinking 9ltr that day and still felt thirsty that night.

My personal take is to drink enough water so you feel like a piss before you hit the sack.

Sno

No wonder we couldnt find it...we looked up and down between the turn off and the fuel dump for the tree... tree..?? what farkin tree Tony.. that Tony reckoned the beer was buried...we didnt have the Co -ords. We didnt look to the north of the dump...bugga bugga....that episode nearly cost us a divorce.....actually I dont think I thanked you for the effort as I didnt know or couldnt remember who it was...but any way thanks ..Im sure had we found it our ride would have been over ...I know mine would have been........hopefully its still there...

Water

Big thing is that you will have access to water potentially several times a day coming from the North. Three riders each carry 18-20L was over kill and contributed to the fatigue factor

Would need to go through my notes but you have Bilunia then water available at Lake Gregory (worth the detour) and then another few more wells before Kunna - Well 49 44 38 & 33 from memory. Also remember that when we got to the well we had a big drink and also aimed to camp there so we would have access to the water.

So when I do it again it will be with 3-4 bikes each carrying around 6L

We did it in July 2011 & it was like a freeway I think we would have passed 3-5 groups a day heading north and also passed groups camped up who would normally come over and have a chat - even scored some ice blocks off one family

To the detriment of our OLO's coke seems to be available at every community so cold mixers occasionally available or bundy & CSR well water takes the edge of a days ride.

Hey Rob, hows it going? 2015 you reckon, i might be keen to have a crack at it then myself after having to pull out last time.i dont know about an enduro bike but i might have to build up a new dr. After looking at every thing on the market at the moment i dont think there are too many other options. Maybe we could get Danoj keen again for another crack as well.

Hey snowy, i would love to go this year but i dont think i could get organised by then. Have you had many takers?
