Do you want to fall down and scratch your bike?

you've missed your calling bora- your a salesman through and through! All the routes are doable, in an upright position,most of the time. depending on your ability and the bike you choose to take.

A route- i would recommend a full on dirtbike with a plate ie: ktm exc, dr-z's will make it,bmw 450x( don't forget your skid plate), husky's(probably take the 630 on a different route) husaberg"s and beta's will be fine.

B+ route- A route bikes, and we know it can be done on a 690 enduro, as the loon's that laid it out ride them, A good rider on a xr650l, dr 650 style of bike should be able to navigate through as well.

A & B+ is not klr friendly, matter of fact- very klr unfriendly. The bug's will eat you,before you get out of there!
.

Here I was, going to take my xr650l on the B+. I'm going to have to downgrade. Going to be fun either way!!

Don't downgrade your choice 2warped! just grab a buddy to ride with. Or find one on sat am at the riders meeting

I included the mighty air cooled 650L in my choices for the B+ bikes!
B+ is a fun challenging route with some real cool trails and scenery to boot.
I have not ridden the B route yet this year,I hear they have some new stuff as well. your are right,having fun on which ever route you choose is the important part!

Desert Conditions?

Desert Conditions?

A route is a difficult roll chart route. You will need to travel 190km between fuel stops. Fresh tires are recommended.

Fresh tires coming up. I am putting on the new Desert Michelin tires right now.



The very old rear TKC-80 just wasn't gonna make it. So how are the Desert conditions looking; some of those pics on the B+ route look like you have a lot of oasis' in your desert right now!

Hi Reid,
I ran the B+ course this year. I usually beat myself up on the A course but figured I would change it up a bit and run something different. Had a great time. Distance was good and outs made it easy for thoes in over their heads to bail if needed. Roll chart was spot on, me not so much.

I like your guy's idea of a B and B+ route. There is a lot of middle ground in the B group and the + separation up's the ante so no whining tolereted if you end upside down in a heap with arms of jelly and getting nothing but air when sucking on your water bladder......you were warned!

Not a complaint, just food for thought.......I figure you could have beat us up a bit more on the B+ route.

I stuck around Sunday and ran the C route. Very scenic, this ride was a lot of fun, roll chart was bang on.

I had an awsome weekend. Thanks for all your hard work on the routes.

That is what the A route is for... :) We were even toying with A+ options for next year. I believe that 3 guys ran a section that we were thinking of by mistake. Ask Turtle about Trevor's downhill, that they ran uphill instead!

Time-wise the B+ course fit the day pretty well (lots of time to bathe and imbibe before dinner) Challenge-wise, I need another turn or two to master it. Yeah I think you did good!

We had 5 in our group on the A Loop

First of all it was great and absolutly not complaints. It did get a little confusing as we entered and left the B+, but that was half the fun not to mention we had a little time to mock the B+ riders. The A route was a long haul without extra gas, but thats always the problem when you want to stay out riding, instead of going in for gas. The gas cache was a good idea and work well for me, although I was worried that there was not going to be enough fuel for everyone. It also would be nice if we could have been a little earlier for lunch, that would probably be our problem for riding so slow.

In short the route was great and I would not complain if you forced me to ride it again next year.

Not sure if having four routes is the easiest thing to do (too many choices, like throwing 4 balls at once for a dog, which one does he chase?), but if you guys want to put in the effort it OK by me.

Job well done

I think the"A" loop was perfect because it had a good mix of trails and road, Just when the trails got alittle tiring a road would intersect and I could get a cooled off again. And those pretty ladies in bikinis at the lake that was brillant.

Awesome ride
