Dakar Rally comes to Melbourne?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Iondah, May 9, 2007.

  1. Yesterday morning as I was riding to work down Collins Street I noticed a bunch of seriously kitted-out bikes parked outside the Novotel. There were about 6 BMW Dakars in a group and looked like they'd just ridden out of the desert. They were loaded up with gear and were each carying 2 spare tyres on the back.

    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about a major trip going on at the moment?

  2. Lucky bastards :cool:

    Where's the pics...
  3. Yeah I wanted to stop and take pics but was late for work. There wasn't anyone around to chat to either so not much point stopping.
  4. Saw 4 of those guys riding passed my work yesterday morning as well.
    Judging by your description would've been the same blokes. They were BMW R1200GS Adventures btw.
    Round Oz trip at a guess.
