As you may have seen, we will have a C+ this year. The B route is not particularly big bike friendly so we present you the C+.


The C+ will have plenty of seldom-used forest track for your riding pleasure.

Much of it is a bit slippery now but it will be all dry by August.

Scenic!

Yes, you can ride it on your 990 if you are an experienced rider.

The water will be gone (but the ruts will still be there...)

Yes we're taking you through the deep grass. That's not some sort of metaphorical reference - the grass is deep.

Can you see the faint track mid-right in the picture?

Really?!? We just cleared this two weeks ago. More deadfall.

Don't worry, C+ to the left. B route straight ahead.

Nice. We didn't get any pix of the A morning loop yesterday. Few changes to come there too. I will start a new thread for that.

Hmmmm…. anyone willing to truck the 350 up, so I can ride the 990 up and enjoy BOTH the B and C+ ?
Name your price !

The C+ is turning out to be quite the ride. Not a gravel road tour but a bunch of awesome woods riding...

Can you see the ribbon? I know, no trail in sight. Lots of this.

And more...

Don't worry, there's plenty of old roads too so you can get your speed up a bit

Here's some of the C+ riders notes, just so you know...

The C+ route is split up into three main sections:
· Part 1 takes you to Falkland. Mostly old forest trails.
· Part 2 takes you up over Spa hills for some great views. More gravel roads, less forest. At the end of part two there are several ‘outs’ to head back to camp.
· Part 3 is 70km or so but can take 2 hours so be aware of the time before you attempt it. Part 3 takes you over to Chase and then back to camp.

Part 1 – Morning
90km - 3.5 hours?

Part 2 – Afternoon
80km – 3 hours?

Part 3 – Optional
70km – 2 hours?

Note, if you are not using the roll chart, you won’t know where the outs are! Even if you are using the GPS track, a roll chart is recommended as it gives you more information.

This route is ideal for 650-class motorcycles. Skilled riders on 950-class riders should be OK. This route is not suitable for 1200-class motorcycles.

Gas and food are available on this route at Falkland.

If I can't get up there on the big bike, I might have to ride the three-fiddy on the C+, as its looking so good !
Whats the required fuel range ?

Yes, part 1 90km 3.5 hours... :D

That was a good rider on a 990. Should be faster on a 650.

Two years back I tried the B route with my KLR. The sand hill nearly did me in... Please be there no sand hill on this route; I am just getting out of therapy.

sounds like there is a sand hill...! but they also captioned that photo with a statement saying there was a way to bypass it. I'm trying to find a troop of other brave KLR riders who want to do the C+ and B on either day of the weekend

Can I ask that you do the C+ on Saturday and attempt the B on a different day. It isn't fair to the riders behind you if you are trying to wedge a KLR through the single track in front of them. Take your KLR on the B on Sunday.

The B has hours of tight woods singletrack and sand hills and steep uphills and downhills. You may have fun on a KLR but the people behind you won't. I'm all for you doing it on a KLR, just not on Saturday.
