Longest day ride 2014

Anyone here considering riding the longest day ride this year to Cameron Corner.. Sorry if there is another thread already, looked and couldn't find one.

I'm locked and loaded.

54 days and counting.. ;)

Cammeron Corner

December in this area of Australia ?
Only mad dogs & Englishmen go out in the center of Australia when the temperature goes over 38 degrees.


Learnt this after riding around Australia for 50 years.

Guys have been doing it for 10 years on that run.

Not the most pleasant time of year out there but not unbearable.

It's a online translation of a HRC press release from a recent Rallye that may have lost something in the translation.

Ok so I'm an idiot..... What is the date to meet at the corner?
I might make it from my way if anyone is mad enough to want to meet up either at Leigh Creek, Copley or Lyndhurst.
I wouldn't be keen doing it solo in the heat.
Cheers
AJ
