I talked to the race director about that specific question.

I told him I'd classify myself as an intermediate who's not afraid to ride the 800GS and he said I should definitely do the easy route. There's some sand to slog through and it'll be a long day but he still recommends it. That's what I'm planning on doing.
As for tires, i just ordered a fresh set of pirelli scorpion rallys. I love the front tire- real aggressive and big time confidence inspiring. The rear is very predictable and works a treat as well.
