            About 3 years ago I went on a ride and there was a guy there who'd gone round Australia on one of those scooter things with two wheels at the front. I think they're about 300cc, and he was being pretty willing with it, but just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD.

              They have enough legs providing you don't insist on sitting on 150 plus through all the boring bits. What's the biggest ride you have done before? You'll need more than three days.

                I met a guy at scabs who'd travelled Australia on an R1. He'd been to Melbourne, Sydney, Cairns and was currently in Perth.

                Can be done, just be prepared for a sore back, legs, wrists, ass etc etc

                  Did Syd to Bris in a day on a 2007 CBR600RR then up to Airlie Beach the day after that. Having a back pack on turned out to be a painful mistake for the two weeks that followed Have tail bag now. Fuel stops are my biggest concern...

                    If you leave tomorrow morning you'll have to ride 1200km a day to make it by Sunday.

                      You'd want to leave soon if you want to make it in time for the race!

                      I've got 300kms to go


                      Plenty of people tour long distance on supersports bikes. Not as comfy, but nothings comfortable after 1000km in a day... Just comes down to mind over matter, push through the cramps and just take plenty of breaks

                            I haven't ridden over since 2008. At that time a couple of super sports joined our group and were carrying small fuel cans due to range issues between stations across the nullabour. So best do a bit of work on those calculations.

                            You may want to consider the ferry across the Spencer Gulf from Lucky Bay. Save time and may give you a well earned break

                            Good luck, you'll have a blast.

                              I haven't done anywhere near that far, but I've done 600-1000km a day a couple of times before.

                              2c: get some sort of luggage other than a backpack. Riding to Kalgoorlie with a backpack on the bike seemed all fine and dandy until about 200km in and my back got sore
                              “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa
