Re: Tanami - ???

Had to google it to find out what the hell Tanami was

Haven't heard of anyone, but I'd be certain its been done a few times... there's plenty of mad bastards out here that might find it fun.
"The Tanami Track is one of Australia's infamous roads cutting across the Tanami Desert linking Central Australia with the Kimberley Region."

It's tough enough doing the 1 highway up that way...

here's one brief account.. click

I'm one of those "Mad Bastards" over here that wants to put it on his to do list for a trip down under. Love the desert and a good adventure, so I'm just looking for first hand accounts and contacts.

Re: Tanami - ???

A little more googling came up with this bloke.. looks like he's done it, or at least was going to, according to one of his comments.
One thing I found when I did my highway run around Oz last year... there's LOTS of guys on off-road bikes travelling this country. A few will have blogged about it for sure..
Hope you find the info you need!
