To get as many people as beds as possible Day 2 and 3 are big days but we then back it off for the rest of the trip. Bring camping gear there is no chance you will get a bed every night. 360 km is the fuel range everyone will need. If you are a slower rider our sweeps will never mind how slow you go as long as you keep going. If you are a slower rider we ask that you leave as early as you can. If you want to be looked after by the sweeps then you need to leave in front of them each morning.
Riding in the dark is obviously more dangerous the sweep leave times will be adhered to so if you want the safety net you simply have to be in front of them each morning. We have an easy option around Vic desert so beginners can go around if they wish. No support vehicle is coming. We will share sweep duties. Please join the highest level of roadside assistance possible which cost $280 per annum if you don't have it already. If you don't have a GPS currently. I would suggest buying the Garmin Montana 610 with hard wiring kit and rubber marine Ram mount. Its a very good opportunity to be shown how to use it. Especially if you don't want to eat another riders dust for 4000 km. If you break down and can be towed this is how you will get to the next town. Once there organizing how to get home will be your next adventure. Some tips. Go and buy a 4 pack of ratchet straps. Use two on your top bag or swag and then the other two around your panniers. Cut the ends so they cant get caught in your gear. Only 3 sections where fuel loads over 260 km required. There is nothing wrong with buying a 10-liter jerry can and strapping it your bike and just filling it when required. When empty they don't cause any trouble. Lightweight camping chair could be a good idea. Wet weather gear is always handy if it gets cold. Only carry days worth of food. You won't need camp stoves if you can't start a fire in western Qld you shouldn't be there. If you have heard that APC rally is just for hardcore riders please don't be put off we welcome beginners just please read our tips carefully. The most common mistake a learner rider makes is bringing to much gear. I am running this ride to just be out riding with my old friends and to make new ones.
Bring a camp set up that is comfortable.
Here is the GPS and wiring and mounting kit I now recommend.
