I had an amazing time a few years back riding from Melbourne to Darwin (From the bottom of Australia right through to the top). The bike at the time was a last minute buy, a Triumph 955i Tiger that'd been hit with an ugly stick. Despite its looks, it was completely capable and incredibly comfortable bike to ride. In the short month I had to prepare I failed at considering everything I'd need.
There is a lot of sand in-between Melbourne and Darwin, and if you have a pen you might want to write that down.." A lot of sand"! When you've made it to the end of a day riding through the sort of stuff that feels like soft serve ice-cream under your wheels you're absolutely knackered and can barely stand on your feet. Well guess what, neither can your bike!
This is an upgrade that doesn't need to cost the earth only keep your bike on top of it. There are a heap of brands with prices from under $15 AUD right through to over $100.
If you've purchased one for your bike it would be great to find out what brand you purchased, why you purchased it and what you think of it.
