Touring Australia


I’ve been a little tardy with the blogging lately, but that’s becuase I’ve been riding around Australia and having a ball! I covered 6123kms in 13 days as a mini-break and to trial run the bike. Here’s the tail end of the Oodnadatta Track, a 600kms dirt track following the disused Ghant railway. The bike did the dirt with no real issues, just two broken bolds on the luggage rack. Other than that, the KLR just didn’t care! I didn’t do too badly either, averaging 500kms a day is really the top end of achievability. (Wouldn’t like to try that in the wet).

Oh, and look. A GREEN long range safari tank. (More on that later!).
