a quick trip report of my Simpson Desert ride and thankyou to those who provided information. The Trip Broken Hill to Alice Return The Bikes WR400, 2*XR 600 2*XR400 and My Husky 610 and of course a 4WD for Beer etc. Soft I know but the Husky doesn’t come with factory panniers. The route Day 0 Broken Hill MX Track Husky makes brave second attempt at Quad Jump Result Broken Bars, trashed helmet, one very sore Husky rider Day 2 Yunta Via back Tracks Husky cleans up roo at 100. No crash but big wobble + dead roo XR6 cleans up Emu at 100. 20 m of cartwheels, bike sore, ribs very sore. Emu extra sore then dead. Day 3,4,5 Marree, Dalhousie, Finke Top adventure touring country, Hot springs very nice. Missing BMW. Day 6 Finke Desert Race Track Top Husky Country, awesome riding. WR 400 has a 120km/h Crash. Day 7 Alice Meet 6 guys on r1100 and r1150 gs’s from Melbourne, heading to Kimberly. Day 8, 9, 10, 11 Down to Simpson Via mystery track across Simpson via French Line. We managed to cross the Simpson while the ends where closed due to rain which meant no traffic and extra fun (Air) on the Dune crossings. We only saw 2 other parties between Alice and Big Red. French Line from Colson Trk to Poppels Corner was some of the best off road riding ever. 12 XR400 crashes in one day Day 12,13,14 Innamincka, Cameron’s Corner, Tib Etc to the Hill. Great Bigger bike area, Thousands of roos near Cameron Corner due I think to the wet weather. Loads of smallish ones. Drive Home over night and off to work with 1 hours sleep since Saturday Night. ( oh the joys of piss poor planning ) All up an amazing trip with awesome scenery, loads of water and colour. About 50-70 % of the trip would have been better on a proper adventure tourer and about 15 % would have been terrible Central Aus is bloody amazing riding with loads of quality tracks and I’m lining up for plenty more trips. Thanks to those answered my questions and a winter jacket was definitely needed.
