APC Navigation Rally 4 Day QLD March 2013

Ok so what can you tell me about this rally, is it a race, is it fast, if you've done it tell me about it.

It is practice for the APC Rally. Not a race.

That looks like an awesome rally. Out of my price range and skill level at the moment but definitely something to strive for.

14 day is no race either

The 14 day APC rally is not a race either. It is a navigation rally that you get a medal if you complete the course. There is a prize for the slowest rider I think.

No; use of a GPS to follow the set route.

Looks like a good $500 investment to me

Question Apc 2013

I am planning to do this ride in 2013.

Start & end in Brisbane. Here is Homer going nuts on his 990:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LguDFrqjS74

I had some email correspondence with John last year & the gist of the conversation is that the guys that ride hard will often:
a. Crash
b. Break something on their bike
c. A bit of both.

My plan is to go steady each day, give myself plenty of time, and according to John, often ride past the guys that have pushed themselves or their bikes too hard...

Well, that's the plan anyway

LOL I was looking at the 14 Day Rally and thinking, no way not yet. The 4 Day one looks very interesting. What does the entry fee pay for?

I think the $485 gets you the route, support, camaraderie & a taste of what the 14 day rally might be like. It's a good way to see if the 14 day one is for you.

PM sent...

The QLD 4 day is something I might look at I think, as long as motels are on the route.

That was the first year of the APC in 2011, I crashed just 30km short of the end of day 1, wrote of the 990.
In 2012 I did it again on a 690 and made it, we had perfect weather every day and couldn't have hoped for a better trip. You are at the mercy of the weather, if the weather turns bad it would be miserable. I found the 690 much more manageable for my skill level. You have to be a really good rider to get the big girls through the course particularly the mud and sand.

I am hoping for good news about my busted leg at the 12 month review visit on Monday. If all is well I am planning to enter for the NSW event in February.

I was hoping to do the 2012 APC 14 day event but I came a cropper in deep sand while trying out tyres. I will be riding a DRZ400 which is big enough to cruise all day at 100 KPH and yet small enough when it is tight going or I have to pick it up after a fall.
