Thumb A P C Rally Super Thread.

http://www.australianpropertycentre.net.au/admin/modules/rentals/files/apc%20rally%20document%2030th%20june%202011.pdf

John "Hommer" Hudson has hatched what may be our answer to The Dakar, The Safari and just about any Iron Butt rally available Down under.
I'm Sure this has the potential to bring Adv Riders Australia wide together for what will surly be one of the Bucket List to do Rides
Have a look and see what you reckon
Cheers
Richard
PS; Rember Boys "Scotty, Mick" its not a race it's an adventure ride

Sounds like a fair wack of cash for what is actually included:
Quote:
Your Entry will include:
1. 7000km course
2. Remote fuel stop in the middle of the Simpson Desert
3. Merchandise pack shirt, hat, stickers
No support vehicle or mention of sweep riders or the like.

Strangely enough the concept still interests me.
If I train my ass off for the next 12 months, get over my phobia of steep ascents/decents and get my sand riding up to scratch I may actually be able to do this
Is anyone else seriously considering entering?
