Thumbs up Unassisted Simpson Desert May 2014

Well it's closing in fast
Will be six riders leaving Alice Springs Via the Finke track to Mt Dare and onwards to the Simpson Desert unassisted.

The DBW riders
Philippe
Lil Nugget
Blackdog
Me(threadersmal)


let the fun begin

Ok its about six weeks to go(well they have to leave a week early to get to Alice) before Crossing the Simpson Desert on my Adventure bike So planning has started for set up & where to put the fuel & water
At this stage I am I'm liking this leaves the rack free for approx 20-25 ltrs of Fuel & 10-20 ltrs of water thats needed to cross the Simpson Desert

2 maybe 3 liters a day is plenty its very easy riding, you do Alice to mt dare in a day from mt dare across Simpson is 2 nites and that's going very easy on bikes, its only around 440ks to birdsville most can do it with one over nite stay, but why would ya take your time

Just do it twice and ride back to the cars at Alice

Hoping to do a similar trip in 12 months with the father in law. He can drive the forby and I can tear it up all day.

Beautiful out there can't wait to do it again.

We will probably be out there at similar times.
We have 7 bikes riding from brisbane to Alice to watch Finke then going across the Simpson home all unassisted.
Have fun and good luck.
