Just not enough room and two up just don't talk about brakes.

Why not? I have done Marree to Marla in one day. 649kms. You could even stop overnight at William Creek as the pub there has burgers, beers, and cabins. Take a plane trip over Lake Eyre.
Just SLOW down for ALL the grids - Don't ask why!

You could even do William Creek to Coober Pedy which if I remember correctly crosses the Dog Fence.

I did it on road tyres but would highly recommend an A/T like the Mitas E-07.

Thanks Brockie
Didn't know William Creek had cabins as I camped at Coward Springs.
I do remember the bloody flies, not sure if there where more outside the pub or inside.
I''ll post up as I go, I think I'll put it up on the main area so all can see not just us down under guys and girls.
That sound ok.

We did a 5 week trip to the rock & back to Brisbane in 2014 on our 650's with a mix of camping and hotel/motels.

The bikes did really well with the Mitas E07's on.

Either way have a great trip & we look forward to the RR

Cheers V2man & GotaV2
