    Picture something like LABV2 but early years.... this will be two long days from Harrison up the East Side to Boston Bar (Fuel), over to Brookmere, along the KVR to Princeton (Fuel) then up to Osprey Lake and along the Headwaters to Silver Lake. Silver Lake Camp is your host for the evening, with a big bbq dinner and drinks, bunks in dorm cabins and a shower house (Read packing light is an option. No tents stoves just a sleeping bag. Check out silverlakecamp.net for pics etc.
    Day Two is even longer (we dont need social time at end of day will leave camp heading into Douglas Lake, Merrit (Gas), then to Lyton.... Plan A continue up to Lilloet, Duffey Lake and down the West side of Harrison. Plan B if the bridge is not passable yet on West Harrison, we will do West Fraser from Lyton down to Nahatlach and back down Harrison East.

        Sounds big bike friendly but it wouldn't hurt to ask. So is this geared for say a Honda AT or smaller?

          This ride will be doable on any dualsport or ADV bike. Yes an AT would be suitable.

                How many km between gas station on the longest run? I have a WR250R with regular size fuel tank.

                  All stock machines should be good for range, looking at 150km max between fuel spots.

                        Would C+ riders from last Sunday be fast enough to do this?

                          Absolutley. The ride is small or big bike doable and the plan is to fo as little slab as possible.

                            By big bike doable - BMW 1200GS doable? The pic with the original post implies the GS rider needs knobs, balls and knows how to ride single track.

                              Sorry about that, I threw in a picture. If you were out on Sunday and did the EZ C Chart ride you will be good to go. This ride is mostly FSR, with some double track and a pepper of slab. There may be a few small creeks/flows to cross but we will all help each other.
