I’m finally taking some long service leave this year and planning on an extended ride on the Tiger. On my bucketlist is Karijini National Park, so thats the main destination. I’ll have 8 weeks from September 10 with the route being Canberra – Karijini – Coral Coast – Pinnacles – Perth – Margaret River – Pemberton – South coast of WA (and Stirling Range) – Home, for a total of about 11,000km. My wife will join me for a week in Perth, where we we’ll do Rottnest Island and Margaret River. I thought I would post the trip up here and see what tips, tricks, advice I pick up before I go. I’ll have topbox, hard panniers, tank bag, 3 waterproof bags for gear, including tent, sleeping bag and mat. I’ll get the bike serviced before I go and then maybe again in Perth (+new tyres?). Perth mechanic and tyre dealer recommendations welcomed. I’m not mechanically minded but will take the basics – tyre repair kit, chain lube (which one? Likely sandy conditions), basic tools, cable ties, gaffer tape – what else? Places to stay (mostly camping), things to see along the route? Of course I’ll check out all the tourist guides but if you know of any local secrets or secluded campsites, I’d love to know. Particularly if you have been to Karijini before. How liberal can I be with where I set my cruise-control? I’m thinking in particular of when I’m crossing the Nullarbor and then up through the middle of WA. Its 4600km just to get to Karijini which will take a while at 100km/h. Is riding in WA like riding in Victoria (got booked for 4km/h over)? The Tiger’s range is about 400km (350km to be safe). As far as I can work out, I shouldn’t need to carry extra fuel. The distance between roadhouses should always be less than this. Ideas for carrying extra water? Thinking of maybe getting a small jerry and a holder to attach to panniers. The drawback of this is I would need to drill into the panniers to attach, which I would like to avoid. The planned route looks something like this: https://goo.gl/maps/kkwzNLN1jmv Any “Ahh, I didn’t think of THAT!” suggestions are much appreciated.
