London to Sydney on KTM690s
« on: May 14, 2012, 01:59:40 pm »
In less than four weeks I fly off to London from Sydney with a one way ticket.  Waiting for me in London is a 2012 KTM690 ready for adventure and it's job is to get me back to Sydney Australia.

There's two of us taking on this trip and if your interested in our preparation, which is now well underway, and our adventures along the way consider 'liking' the following link on facebook.

Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.

Dave, have a really good trip, it's the sort of thing many of us would love to do, but few get to do. Ride safe too.

Nice one edog! I watched  some of your vids when we were in oz last year. I'll follow it with interest as we only managed to get to the chinese border and then had to fly from tashkent to sydney.  :dousing:

All the best and have a ball!
