Hello, putting the feelers out for any fellow ADVer's keen on giving the Canning a go next year, mid June heading from the top down.
If you dont mind a bit of sand and want a bit of a challenge, this is it, the pace will be moderate, with a couple of full days or part days for a rest and bike maintenance, aprox 10 days.
Cheers
Dennis

Geez Dennis, do a bucket list ride next year?

A lot going on next year so I'll just keep an eye on things and make a few decisions after Xmas. This is definitely a contender as it's a ride I really want to do. your pace will be just fine by me.

Time off work, easy.
Time off on the home front, more challenging.

Hi Reefdog, you had me by line 3 " I can cook ", but there is no support vehicle,' sorry about that.
Thank you for the offer,

yeah but did you read line 6
I CAN DRINK

Was going to do the CSR back in 93 but the other vehicle 4X4 pulled the pin 2 weeks before the leave date so had to change plans

As is said before I will do it when I get home from here and ill do it in a 4X4, so I can get so riders together that want to do it and Ill carry the fuel for both bikes and humans

I dont roll, tumble, pick up bike like i used too

good luck lads

There are a few of us starting to look at this at about the same time. I would be interested in that footage of the track. We will have some bikes and maybe two 4x4 as back up with some non riding family members on board. Plans are still in the very early stages though, don't even have dates set yet,but are very keen.
