Nice work Jason! What a killer adventure. I still can't believe you pushed that beast for 2.5 km.

What's a typical moto class budget (on the cheap) for the Safari?

Keith ill let you know when i do it cheaply! Lol! Kidding, i had a special situation so it could have cost a lot more but there are a few base costs that you can plan on and thenpick and choose how easy or hard you gofrom there... I'll get back to you, though

Yesterday was the Kalbarri Death March, haha.. It started off well, nice fast 100k stage, fast and flowing. Second stage was a reverse of an earlier one, and halfway through i lost the back brake cable. Ironically, brakes allow you to ride faster. At first i used some fence wire to bodge it, but could never really get enough tension so it was really just to hold the brake pedal up out of the way. As someone pointed out, its a BMW and therefore doesnt really need a rear brake. Just diwnshift and BBBWWOOOAAA down you go.
Fixed it at service.

Stage three was a 200k that at 80ks into i hit a dip and broke the left footpeg off. I found out later this is where the #14 yamaha crashed, and also Manuel. I went back and found the footpeg remains, and someone later pointer out its a BMW and comes equipped with two substitute footpegs sticking out from each side. I used some more fence wire to sew the peg remains back on the bike, but it just barely worked. Not proud to say i borrowed the footpeg from #14 bike which was there, in case the bodge job i dis failed somewhere over the rest of the stage. It only kind of worked, i was forced to sit most of the rest of the way, or stand on one foot, and when i got back to camp i gratefully returned the borrowed yamaha peg.

The final 20ks were just brutal. As i said i saw Ivan, a very surly ivan at km 112, not interested in making convo of any sort, and at km 140 i found Dave Blight who was nursing his bike through a series of electrical shorts brought on by dumping too many times. We rode out the final k's together, and when we finally reached the finish, i looked over at him and spontaneously starting giggling like a little girl. Couldnt stop for about ten minutes. Arguably the hardest ride ive ever done. They save the best for last.

Last year it cost me about 25k to do the event. Shipping was a good chunk of that. This year there was a free shipping offer which would save you about $4000. My shipping was close to $8000 but it had to go air freight down due to time constraints. I also had about $1500 shipping the bike back and forth across the usa. Had another $5000 or so in bike prep...probably more. $2200 plane ticket. Fuel costs food etc...riding gear.


On the cheap you couldnt do it for anything less than about $10000. Airfare and entry is $6000+ if you boughr a cheap bike down there and lived out of a box you might do it for less than 10k

Jason,
Yer one of the baddest dudes on the planet...
So's that bike. If you'd told me a year ago you'd be bashing an R65 across WA, I'd have said...
'When are you leaving?"
The bike has to be awesome and we can't wait to hear more about it!!!!
Fantastic ride!!!
