Desert Raid 2015 - Rawlinna - Tuesday 5 May 2015

If you are looking for an(other) excuse for a remote destination adventure ride in WA why not join me and a few mates for the 4th Desert Raid. This time we're going to Rawlinna WA. Its on the Transcon Access Track approx 375kms east of Kalgoorlie.

We'll gather there on Tuesday 5 May 2015.

There's plenty of ways to get there - from all 4 points of the compass! Apparently the Transcon Access Rd is so good between Kalgoorlie and Rawlinna that even the big 1000cc+ bikes can be piloted over it without too much fuss but please do your own checks.

With the Kalg-Rawlinna section being an easier route, we are hoping more riders on a wider variety of bikes will join us. Some outfits maybe?

Fuel logistics will be key - do your own logistics and be self sufficient because I'm sure no-one will be doing any fuel drops. My plans (as they stand atm) require a 1000km range to get from Kalgoorlie to Laverton via Plumridge Lakes so I'll do the Transcon leg first - easier to carry the extra fuel on a nice formed dirt road.


We'll meet up here (at the bike icon)


For the legal hawks out there, NOBODY is 'organising' this ride . Four of us are definitely going and I'm just telling you guys about our plans in case others would like to meet us there.

All things being equal I'll be doing Cockilbiddy to LAverton via Rawlina & Plumridge next year going to the OCR. About 700 km I made it from Cockilwhatever to Lavertonso I'm working on an extra 15L for the 950 ( have aside tank that holds 12L as well)

Would be a great ride from up here. Gary junction down the Gary highway on to the Connie Sue.......very interesting. With all the trips I've got planned already I'll have to see how many brownie points I have.

Totally impressed by those of you who can plan 1 1/2 years out.

I can't see much past next weeks beer fest.

I'll look at this in about 12 months time.
