Steve Crombie takes his WR250 on an 8000km offroad adventure

Posted:

Is Yamaha‰Ûªs WR250R the world‰Ûªs best lightweight adventure bike?

It‰Ûªs capacity to eat up mile after mile with minimal spannering would suggest so, according to adventurer Steve Crombie.

The Epic motorcycle adventurer has set out to prove how capable the fuel injected WR250R is by completing a solo 8000km offroad adventure from Darwin to Sydney.

Dodging crocs and waist high rivers, Crombie is the first person this year to make it out to Limmen Camp on the Gulf of Carpentaria and has since continued south offroad to Alice Springs.

Due to flooding, the Simpson has become impassable - now he will carve solo across the north west edge of the Simpson Desert and navigate his way across to the Strzlecki Desert and around the flooding Lake Eyre to Sturt National Park.

From here he will continue down to Wilcannia and onto Ivanhoe before tackling the railway tracks east back towards Sydney on 13 June.
