I'm about 50/50...

Still trying to sell the GS, I have very limited off-road experience, just put knobbies on the BMW and did about 10km, and my knee (dislocated 4 times) was really bothering my from (I think) the awkwardness of the bulky F650 fuel tank, which forces you to stand bow-legged. With my noobness I don't think I could do it, even the C route, on the GS.

If I can sell the BMW and get a DRZ or something similar in time, I'm in for the C route.

If it helps, I don't mind stringing a few tarps from her (the RV) to make some manner of extended tent shelter thing, or bike shelter type deal.

My wife sent my registration in last week but I don't see my name on the list yet. Is there a pile still to be sorted through?

Thanks,
Chris

I am new to these types of events andI have signend up, but is there anything I need to navigate the C course. I do not have a GPS. Will there be maps or roll charts handed out? If roll charts do I need to pickup a roll chart holder or will they be supplied or sold at the event?

Hi there beebum.

There will be roll charts but holders will have to be purchased before the event as we don't supply them. The roll charts will come by email as letter sized pdf sheets that you will print off. You will then spend many patient hours cutting up and sticking them together to get them into one long strip. Then you'll need many more hours of cursing while feeding them into the holder, after which you'll throw the whole mess down in disgust and print off some fresh sheets and stick them in the top map pocket of your tank bag.
Alternatively you can follow someone with GPS.
Nuff said?

Like Loz said, we will email you the route sheets (also known as roll charts) a few days before the event Leave in full sheet form, slide into a tank bag map window or a big ziplock freezer bag, tape the closed end of the bag to your handlebar crossbar..and you are good to go.

Roll charts are not necessary unless you prefer to use one.


After yesterdays pre ride of the C routewe highly recommend everyone carry a Vancouver Island roadmap,to find your way back to camp in case you decide to bail early.

The C route is 300 km, and will take 6 to9 hours including the lunch stop.

Thanks,

guys at least I know what I am up against. I will investigate what makes sense for me...but the tank bag map pocket options sounds the best. :hb:
