I survived the journey across Australia, from Anglesea in Victoria, to home in Perth, Western Australia.
Aprox. 800 km's each day, first 2 days, 1,122 km's 3rd day, and about 920 km's 4th day.
Second day was through 45 to 50 degree(C) dry heat, 3rd day was 25 to 36 degrees, humid and horrible.4th day 25 to 35 and light rain
My new (2007) K 1200 LT did not mind the heat or the humidity, and just purred along nicely.
I still like my K1100 LT, but my back and knees don't like lifting it onto the mainstand, so I had to get a bike with electro/hydraulic stand, and electric reverse for medical reasons. (That's my excuse, and I'm stickin' to it !!)
