    i just purchased my dream bike and in 3 weeks ill be riding it, R1200GS 2012 fully loaded with the adventure bags and BMW Motard GPS. I planning to do first a loop around this country, and possibly Alaka in june the following summer. i haven't taken my dreams further then that. Although the bike is capable of world touring and it be waste not to travel further then then my country. Expense would be the only thing that would stop me.

    here is my RR from trip number two in the simpson.. then i had another go and completed a double crossing in 2012, but have not done a Ride Report for this one as I did a 7 page spread for an Australian Adventure mag - Adventure+Action mag... and I had to sign some legal documents saying I wouldn't put the story up anywhere. else..

    awesome thread guys.. making me jealous..

    I'm curious though, if you had to do it with half the fuel capacity, was their fuel stops that you could make it too?

    Also, how good do you have to be to do the finke? :)
