BMW GS Safari Enduro 2014. Who's going?

I'm riding up to Darwin from the Pilbara with 1 or 2 other WA lads. Then riding back. Can't wait for July.

$400 a day with someone carrying your stuff, free swag, free mechanics (if needed highly unlikely). Medical back up which is fairly handy as you get older, some meals and accomodation, GPS tracks supplied, not bad really. Night out before and after.

I agree with podge it's not bad value. I really started the thread to see who was going and from how far afield. I can't wait to do a bucket list ride with great support. I've only got enough time off for this ride this year. Maybe I can do the two laps when I have long service leave.
