Went for a little ride on Friday & Saturday.
Start at 04:00 at Wallsend (Newcastle), then via Merriwa to Gilgandra for fuel (through heavy fog & 5C), then Bourke (fuel), down the Kidman way to Cobar (fuel), Hillston (fuel) and Griffith, corner docket at Darlington Point, through Wagga Wagga, roadside fuel top-up near Gundagai, last refuel at Goulburn, 3C through Southern Highlands, skirt around Sydney, and finish at Beresfield at 02:52 Saturday : 2284 km on the GPS, OA of 91.1 kph.
I looked (and felt) a bit worse for wear at the end of the ride!
V didn't miss a beat, averaged 19.8 kpl for the whole trip.
