Round Oz on a motorcycle- without killing each other...


Rachel is the proud owner of "Bavarian Tractor"- a BMW R1100 GS. It's a '94 model, red (the picture is NOT the actual bike- we don't get it until Saturday), has three boxes (panniers, topbox), crash bars, driving lights and so on.

So why have we bought such a vehicle?
Rachel and I are off around Australia in late July for an as yet undecided period. The map you see here is our current (rough) plan. Promises to be fun, mad, tiring, frustrating and hopefully triumphant.
Here are the places we are going (these are what I will call the "legs" we plan to cover)
1/ Melbourne to Horsham/Lake Eyre
2/ Lake Eyre/ Ayers Rock / Alice Springs
3/ Eastern NT, sou west QLD to Rockhampton
4/ Rocky to Cape York and then back To Weipa.
5 Ferry from Weipa to Karumba
6/ Korumba to Darwin and Kakadu
7/ Kakadu to Kimberlies
8/ Kimberlies way way down the WA coast to Perth.
9/ Perth to Adelaide
10/ Adelaide To Melbourne
