Well it was a difficult journey, but I finally made it. Left Melbourne at 2:30pm on Wednesday and arrived in Perth at about 5:00pm yesterday (Sunday). So about 4.5 days of riding. The hardest was probably Port Augusta to the Border Village. I'm still exhausted. I'll probably fill in more details later. I'll probably go back in about a week, but take it a bit slower. Probably ride around the SW for a couple of days. I saw a lot of bikes heading east on Saturday. Few going my direction though. The biggest issues were sunburn (even 30+ doesn't seem to prevent it), wind noise (even earplugs don't completely stop the ringing once you get off the bike), a sore backside (I sat on my pillow which helped a bit) and general aches and pains.
