Could there be a future ride plan to visit the 3 places on this planet that share the same RL as Peak Charles ???

I'm in if there is !

That sounds like a awesome ride and if you ever do it and want some company count me in! The Carpathians are where the Romaniacs ride through ( next weekend in fact).
great ride report fellas' the little WR 250Rs are sure great bikes, I love mine but have it for sale now that I have bought a 990, but when it sells I may regret it, it sure is a lot easier to ride in sand than the big beast! Some fantastic photos as well, the colors of the Goldfields trees are just wicked eh! Cheers for sharing

Yo Rhino,
Just a bit caught up clearing debris......
Anyways thanks for the comments on this and the Lake Ballard run. Gwalia Mine? Sounds good! - maybe next time eh?
I reckon a run thru there then up to the new SKA Astronomy dishes out at Boolardy Station would be pretty cool. Maybe next year.

Thanks for posting. Good to see another local out and about in the Goldfields! Its a great riding playground. What sort of economy are you getting from your WR?

How was your fuel consumption?


Yes the HT is a good ride indeed.
With the Safari Tank on the Slab @ 100-110kph you'll get about 320 - 340 kms
On the Track, that same tank will get you from Hyden to Coolgardie with still 1 litre left in the tank. Cant remember how far it is.....

I also carry an extra 7 litres in 2 x separate containers.

Some ones got a good sig line out here which resonates with me, something like; You can never have too much fuel, unless you're on fire
