coast to coast posties

just cant get this outta me head
a few years back, some clowns set a record for postie bikes from byron bay to steep point wa in 12 and a half days, but, they made a few navigational errors and also were drugged by a stranger with hallucinagenic lsd laced scones
I reckon it could be done in 10 days
anyone else wanna have a go?
every man for himself
i can organise cheap freight from geraldton to dalby
next year

Hi Philth

a mate in truck comes over here and back once a month from geraldton
probably 3/400 bucks to freight over and you can ride home
ditto for east coasters

the route is tar from byron to bourke, then up to the corner, down to lyndhurst, up to will crk, out to coober pedy, tar to the rock, on to warburton, gunbarrel... maybe skip the gunbarrel this time as there would be heaps of carnage on it,
leonora, north to meeka , mnt gould and out to the coast via byro station , overlander rdhouse and steep point
dead farkin easy!

Skip the Gunbarrell because there would be carnage...

Hang on, last time I looked this was ADVENTUREbikerider.com, not Grandma Clampetts crochet for beginners........

Sounds like the EXACT reason to tackle the Gunbarrel.

I'm keen. The biggest barrier will be the mindset, not the terrain.
