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!).

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
