2014 GS Safari in Tassy

We're in.
TS Safari two up for the first week, followed by a dirty week one up doing the GS.
I'm riding down and back from the Gold Coast and planning to be on the road for about a month.
Who wants to ride the twisty way to the ferry?
Probably via the snowies and whatever mountain passes we can find on the way.
Leaving the Gold Coast 27/10/14.

Bastards.....

I was hoping the registration might be a bit later. Got back from Darwin/Cairns on Friday, and cant quite swing registering for the next one with the wife a week later.

Seems I will have to give this one a miss.

I was just going to have a look at the registration website. Honestly.
Next thing I know, money went missing from my account and replaced with a registration number in my inbox

This will be my second Safari. I did last year's through the Victorian high country and had a blast. Really looking forward to getting down to Tassie on the bike after spending two weeks there earlier this year in a camper-van. Can't wait to see the planned route.

For the seasoned Safari goers, any hints, tips on what to bring our what farkles to fork out for?

I did read about soft luggage only.
Assuming we will do a lot of stand up riding, already got bar risers installed on my non-GSA. Contemplating the wider foot peg solution/pivot pegs.
Tyres? Got almost new Anakee 3 on rear, not sure if I should rethink that one for something more aggressive.

Your feedback will be much appreciated.

And anyone else from Sydney doing a 2 day safari to the safari?
