We’re out of gas!


Not really. The bike is doing great, averaging around 750 to 800 kms per tank full. I’ve realised that if I fill her up in the morning, I can’t ride far enough to empty the tank in one day!! (Unless I ride at night).

I had an extra day in Broome, to rest up myself – and also to give the bike some TLC. New headlight bulb and an oil change. I also gave it a wash at the local jet wash. It looks pretty good at the moment. (Well for what it is anyway).

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!

  1. Gday Mark, You are really covering some ground. Don’t forget to smell the roses every so often. The memories will stay with you long after you have forgotten a few missed deadlines. End of lecture! We met briefly in the caravan park at Normanton, I had the 1200GS. Here are the contact details for my mate Chris Phillips, currently in Switzerland, but heading into Russia then across Siberia/Mongolia on an XT660. Email chris1200gs@gmail.com, Blog at wombatstravels.blogspot.com.au. I have also sent him your blog address. I am sure you guys would be able to swap seriously useful information at some points in the coming months. Stay upright, Mike Green.
