What to take on the bike

Make sure you take tools specific to your motorbike.

Spare tubes front and rear (a 21 inch or 19 inch tube can usually fit both rim sizes).

It is always good advice to put heavy duty tubes in for this type of riding, the high country has many rocky tracks and we will be riding those tracks.

Water to drink on the ride, it could get very dusty and water on the go will help you replenish a dry mouth and throat.

Clothes, it goes without saying but please make sure you wear protective gear including boots, pants, jacket, gloves and helmet.

General Tips

  1. It is a great idea to take an extra set of gloves, if the first pair get wet you can swap. Cold wet hands can ruin your ride.

  2. It could rain, in fact there is always a very good chance of rain in the High Country. If your riding gear is not water proof, we recommend you take a rain jacket to go over the top to keep you dry.

  3. Don’t forget to have a great time, this not a race, it is a tour. We take in the sites and enjoy the tracks along the way.

  4. Take plenty of photos and videos.

What to put in the support vehicle

Clothes and shoes for Saturday night, bathroom bag. Please note: all bedding, doonas, pillows and towels are supplied at the accommodation. Please don’t bring a large bike bag, keep your clothes to a minimum.

While there might seem to be plenty of room in the Mile Munchin’ Adventures support trailer, if we need to carry one or two broken-down bikes it soon gets very tight.

Bike & Tips Maintenance

  1. Check tyres, if they are old, please replace them.

  2. Check brake fluid, you’ll use your brakes a lot going down the hills, make sure they have been serviced before leaving.

  3. Sprockets and chain, check and make sure they are in good working order.

  4. Air Filter, replace if dirty, the ride could be dusty and you may need a filter change on Saturday night so bring a spare oiled and ready to go.

  5. Make sure your tank is filled with petrol from the start.

  6. Check your wheel bearings for any movement, change if you feel any wiggle in the wheel.

  7. If you are riding a 2 stroke, please bring oil to be either carried with you or put in the support vehicle.

The support vehicle does carry some spare items but these don’t always fit all bikes so make sure you bring spares for your particular bike. Particularly if it is known to have regular issues.
