There is now around 80 confirmed starters.
With 2014 being the last year of the Australia Safari (WA based currently) it may be there'll be a number of 'starters' from that former event too.

Runt Boy I reckon you'd better show us the sights and pleasures of Perth the night before.

I guess their are going to be some disappointed people considering it says no more than 60 riders.

I think the 60 riders refers more to the fact that there were only 60 available spots in shipping containers to freight bikes to Perth from Melb Syd and Bris. ?

It may be that starting numbers are capped to avoid congestion until everyone spreads out, or starters are grouped and staggered time wise? (ie 1/2 hour apart in groups of ten?)

No doubt details will emerge later on, but there's only 336 days till I fly to Perth.

You may be correct. Very.

From what I hear it could also be the first official gathering of the 700RR club. Another cause for celebration, not that I'll be looking for excuses.....

They have negotiated a better freight option so they have opened up entries to 150, OMG
I have the Erzberg start grid envisioned hope the first hill is more than 50 metres away.
Its going to be big

Sure.

I can see it now, on the morning of the official start.......
" think we should gear up and get going?"
" yeah, alright, soon. Just one more can though..........."

APC 2012 I think we hit the hay on the eve of the start about 3.30am.
By the third night (or was it the fourth?) we were far more responsible and were safely tucked in by 2.

I'm booked in too, deposit paid.
I'm looking forward to having a decent look over the bikes at the start....probably the last time ill see them till finke.

It's time to start my build (or rebuild) of my old 690.

With my safari tank and the rally raid rear, I reckon I'll just need a ten litre bladder...."550 Klms range required", any idea if that is in sand or gravel anyone. Will the 700rr get 550 kms without a bladder.

The best I got out of my 690, um sorry 700 , was 20L/Km, so that'd be 600Km takin it real easy, worst was 15. Rekon I might carry my 8 litre bladder just in case.
