Adventure Wall to Wall 2017 (RR)

Wall to Wall adventure motorcycle ride
Lake Windemere from Aarons Pass Road

The inaugural adventure Wall to Wall 2017 motorcycle ride was initiated by Dave Darcy. Dave wanted to create an alternative ride for adventure motorcycles to compliment the road bikes of the traditional remembrance ride. He asked RideADV to manage it.

Dave Darcy has a great YouTube channel with lots of exciting content on rides and motorcycle reviews. He’s probably best known for his London to Sydney ride some years ago on his KTM690.

The tracks were fantastic, as usual, and well researched by RideADV. A great way to see the towns of Gulgong, Wellington, Molong, Parkes, Eugowra, Gooloogong, Koorawatha, Murringo, Boorowa and Yass  even if most were just fleeting visits.

A 4 day/3 night ride, we stayed in  Gulgong, Parkes and Yass in Motels.

It was good to know the support vehicle was always on your tail.

I attended the Wall to Wall Adventure 2017 ride. My report can be read here. The Wall...

For people who could get there, the ride formally started at The Domain in Sydney. Riders were escorted out of Sydney by Police motorcycle and joined the road west to Lithgow. A formal stop was scheduled at Capertee where other riders joined in. From Capertee to Gulgong, the ride was navigated by markers. From Gulgong the ride as a navigation ride and riders kept to small groups of roughly equal riding ability.

Each day had a standard route and at least one breakout section but I think everyone on this ride took the breakout sections as of they were standard.

The GPX file download above is there for anyone who wants to see exactly where we went.


There were a few dropped bikes along the way including mine. But no serious injuries were reported.


It was good to be able to join all the other motorcycles at EPIC in Canberra and be a part of thousands of people attending the annual ceremony at the National Police Memorial. A sombre event, and one which highlights the risk to policing and the ultimate sacrifice made by some members of the force.
