Our highly experienced lead riders will assess the rider level of the group and choose the appropriate trails to suit.
This tour is best suited to an intermediate level riding skill.
We welcome all makes and models of bikes that as suited to this type of riding as long as they have a current Australian registration and a fuel range of 300kms. Larger bikes such as KTM 1190's can be ridden on this tour if you have an advanced rider level and are an experienced adventure rider.

Our tours are a unique Adventure Riding experience, they are unsupported so you will be required to carry all of your own camping equipment, clothes, daily snacks, optional camp chair and your personal items. If you are new to adventure riding we can help with bike set up and recommend the best camp gear and luggage bags to suit your bike, there are some great options available so there will be something to suit any type of bike to get it adventure ready.
We have a back up vehicle that will follow in the back ground and meet up at certain times of the tour to cook up a camp oven roast, damper, stews and a BBQ breakfast one of the mornings.
Our back up vehicle is available to recover any bike breakdowns, emergency situations and will carry spare parts and tools for motorcycle servicing.
Our lead and sweep riders will carry a satellite phone and EPIRB for any emergency situations and also a tracking device so family and friends can follow the tour in real time on an easy to use App.
With all of our tours we use what we call the 'cornerman system' to keep the group together and avoid people taking wrong turns and getting lost. This system is easily learnt and is a tried and true way that is used quite often when riding in groups.
