I’ve done it

I finally arrived at 4:00pm. First thing was a shower. Tonight it’s my own bed and pillow. Yay.

Total distance…. drum roll please…



7,551 km.

Will I do it again? Yes. I loved every minute of it. Next year OzSToc will be held in Ballarat – only 600km further than Middleton. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll have the leave available.

Kalgoorlie to Perth

After touring Kal for a bit I headed west.

My bum was now starting to feel like it had done a few rounds with Mike Tyson, but it was the last leg and I wanted to get home today. So plenty of stops.

I thought the road to Southern Cross was bad when I received a text from Gavo saying it was bad on the other side. Great. Thinking back on it now, I didn’t realise Main Roads have perfected corrugated bitumen. Absolutely atrocious.

Ps. Gavo rode from Eucla to home in 1 day – about 15 hours in the saddle. Ouch.

Rather than taking the usual way in to Perth I figured I’d detour via York. The road wasn’t the best (to York) but the high speed twisties hopefully rounded out my square tyres from the Nullabor.
