    Have made tentative plans. Never done one before. Does anyone have last years route. Would like to get an idea of the off road sections

    Really hoped to do my second one in '21 but with the TT2000 back in the South I can't do both. I was hoping that they might be a week apart - me and @BogBoss were thinking of coming down with the 250's on the ute for the DB and big bikes on a trailer and do both. Would have been an epic couple of weeks...

    @Phreaky Phil, I probably have the GPS files.

    Could be coming off the Awakino saddle although that looks a bit too flat (not steep) and the rocks are too small. The Awakino is the only place you get just rocks though so maybe?

    Just a thought regarding the GPX tracks, there have been problems in the past with people using the tracks when not on the DB. A lot of the route is public access but some parts are private land and this has caused some irate land owners, be responsible.

    Thanks. I know what you mean about private access, coming off a farm. Always pays to find the farmer and have a chat, even if gates are unlocked.

    As usual I am keen in theory. It's just a bad time with work cranking up for the year. Probably 50/50 at this stage.

    Is the Awakino loop the trickiest offroad section. I have watched some videos and it looks like it might be tough on a big bike ?

    For me it was the hardest if it wasn't for @innathyzit I'd probably still be up there, but the payoff was awesome

    I've been through once on the old Africa twin and once on the Dommie, both were epic and I was totally done in after it.
    Great fun on a little bike but an epic traverse on anything big.

    If they go from the kurow end it would be easier on a big bike, but take lots of mates who are willing to push and be prepared to be up there all day. I have done it 4 times on the klr, and only got stuck once, but no way would I have taken the PD over. The Awakino throws a lot at you.
