I've got 3 weeks off work coming up in September and I've been considering doing a nice big long ride. I've done sydney to newcastle, and sydney to lithgow before and loved it but I'm considering something a bit grander. I've been looking at routes and I'd love to do Sydney to Broken Hill via the snowys, I'd be looking at staying at hostels/motels/pubs where possible but I'm open to pitching a tent if need be. This is the route I've been looking at: http://maps.google.com.au/maps/ms?m...ll=-34.537212,145.719071&spn=1.436682,2.90863 The big worries are fuel, road quality and weather. I'll be riding a CB400 which goes 240km/18L, even out there I should be ok with fuel, but I'm considering taking a small 5L jerry anyway. From what I've been able to piece together on google maps the route I've chosen is all sealed roads, weather wise I'm not to fussed about rain , I've ridden plenty of times in the rain commuting but touring would probably be much much different. So is this a little too ambitious/ crazy? I've chosen a route which, If need be I can cut it short and head back home if need be.
