Is that one bike or two. Looks like a standard bike in the back and a recumbent in front? Like the Orange!

Edit - Maybe one of these....http://hasebikes.com/96-1-Tandem-Pino-Tour.html

Got a question Noah, how was the fuel consumption on the 690 while crossing the Simpson? Do you have any rough miles per gallon / km per litre guesstimates? (Or any other 690 off-roaders)?

The Canning Stock Route is an outback track I'm keen to hit on my 690, dirt, deep sand, shallow sand, rocky, but the longest distance between petrol stations is 1900km (You can organise a fuel drop or two). A Safari tank + 2x 1.75gallon RR Rotopax on the pannier racks + the RR bash plate tank + a couple of milk bottles of fuel on the back would almost push 50L fuel. Overkill?

Well if you manage to get 4L/100km which is good going on the 690 in mixed road and off road conditions you'll be looking at approx 80 litres.
And I'd say hard sandy off road you could be looking at a lot more.

Yeah I think the minimum distance to an organised fuel drop is about 700km, if the 690 can do that through the desert with between 50-60L then should be right
