It quickly becomes apparent how much money KTM/Red Bull etc chuck at something like this. The big truck with all their gear in it alone would be worth a fortune.
It would be ridiculous what they spend.

A bloke I know did Finke the year before last and kept a careful tally of all costs, he had a real crack taking a shit load of spare parts, multiple trips up to ride the track and so on. He reckons it cost him $20 odd grand...... ouch.

Tis 32K just for the entry fee per guy on a bike.

Great Vlog so far, looking forward to the rest.
