Alice to Birdsville

Doesn,t seem to be to many options , I will do this bit without my brother & the V strom. He is going onto Tennant creek ,mount Isa ect.I was looking at the Plenty hwy/Donohue to Boulia than the Developement rd to Birdsville. Then down to Innaminka, Camerons Corner & back into NSW. Not sure when i will be leaving Alice ,depends on if we see the Rock ,kings Canyon ect before the Finke Desert race.
Are you going to the Finke? Gav

TBH I hadn't given it much thought. Its on the radar now, tho'. See how I go with those dates and my own travel progress. I'm guessing nearby accom may be a bit tight?

Wish I could join you, i will be checking out the trials at Maldon because I only live a short ride from there (Maryborough) Why is the Strom only sticking to the easy roads? The trials week-end should be good.

maldon trials

looking forward to the trials myself.I have a ride in a local event 2 days before I leave on my trip. The Strom is being ridden by my 60yr old brother who has no off road experience. He is going to do a little off the tar riding on our way down thru nsw to Vict, then we will see how he goes. I have come across beginners off road before who get in way too deep ,doing some risk assessment.
