Wow, this sounds like my sort of ride!
Unfortunately I'm doing a unsupported Cape York trip at the same time otherwise I'd love to come. I'm actually planning to do the Canning ride next year, so will follow this tread with interest.
Have an awesome trip.

Hamburger with the lot itinery

Hi Ed,

Good talking to you the other day - here is our itinery for the ride, starting August 04 at Broken Hill - have the goal posts a bit to help John from Newy. Previous trips suggest its easier to underestimate time, so distance covered most days are conservative, with a few long haul days to buy time if needed.
So the plan is to leave cars, trailers, donkeys, camel trains etc at BH Lake View caravan park.
Sunday 04/08 at BH,
05/08 - on the way to Birdsville,
06/08 - Birdsville with possible start into the Simo,
07/08 - Simo
08/08 - Mt Dare
09/08 - Alice
10/08 - spare day (alice)
11/08 - Kings canyon
12/08 - Olga & the rock
13/08 - Alice (bike service r& r)
14/08 - The Tan
15/08 - Billy and the crater
Next 8 days doing the big can down to Wiluna
23/08 - wiluna
24/08 - the gun
25/08 - warby
26/08 - the connie sue
27/08 - ilkulka
28/08 - 31/08 - the anne beadell to coober
at coober pick up from the depot pre-arranged tyres, oil, spares etc
And then thereafter assess how things are going, probably a lazy ride back to BH via Oodnadatta track or via the Gamman ranges and the Flinders and then home. Then put the bike in the garage, padlock the door and not go near it and then recover from monkey butt.

From Bridgestone90's thread Canning Stock route May 2013

Done solo

Canning Completed

Hey Guys,

Well I know some of you guys are close to heading off on your own CSR Adventure. I have just returned home earlier today(can't sleep now) from my adventure which included the CSR from Billiluna to Well 9 and out to Carnegie and other iconic outback aussie tracks, including the Simpson.

From my experience out there I would not like to say too much. To offer an explanation, I learnt from others that you really need to just have a crack at these things yourself because everyone has a different perspective as well as skill and comfort levels. However I will offer to answer any questions on bike set-up, fuel, water etc. to assist those on their own adventure.

My ride was solo for the entire 9,500kms, 22 days, and I hope to never forget the experience and down to earth people that I met along the way, including some advrider inmates (Dirt Doctor-Thanks for the hospitality at Yulara and Havafati-Thanks for the yarn at Wilcania). Awesome stuff.

What a challenge!!
What an accomplishment

Lifes too short and there's too much to see and do.

Sno
