Brisbane to Barrington Tops 5 night camping

Hey
Planning a six day five night camping ride to Barrington Tops , leaving early saturday the 2nd of march back on the thursday arvo - as much dirt as possible trying to keep it to suit a fully loaded KLR 650- may do the third night a pubstay depends how we feel - have a route to follow but may have to wing it abit at times - would be up to 450km days mostly on dirt so a moderate pace needed to get in before dark, so need to be reasonably experienced riders?
Anybody interested in coming ?

I presume

I presume you will be doing mostly dirt roads rather than a bit of technichal stuff.
I live near Byron bay so you could make the 1st and 4th night at my house if you wish.

I'd love to know the route you have planned, I might have some tracks to discuss.

Sounds interesting.

I've got a mate who also rides a KLR 650 who might be interested as well.

PM me your phone number to discuss.

Cheers Gordo'

EDIT: if you don't want to scroll through heaps of pages....
click here for the ride report.
click here for the gps file of the route - "brisbane qld to barrington tops nsw".

this is the video of the ride.







hey gordo
we know most of the dirt options down to old grafton rd, after that we'll mainly be relying on other guys' tracks from the trans australia tracks site.

thanks for the byron offer but i think we'll be a lot further south by the end of the first day... say camping around nymboidia or ramornie national parks. be moving along at a decent clip each day to try and be back within six days.

its b1's ride so he's got final say on route details and everything... i'm just drafting the basic trip up.

again thanks for the invite but byron bay is 100km further east from our route so it would add a pile of km and extra bitumen to get over that way. you would have to meet us at tabulam or something like that.

mind you, if you've got a secret squirrel trail from border ranges to broken head via byron bay that is 95% dirt, i'm all ears so just PM me.

Up for a ride

I might be up for that one...DR is ready to go! Same old - it is work that gets in the way! What sort of fuel range you thinking? Have a 20ltr tank so would be in KLR territory anyway.

no throwing rocks on this ride, young man. greendude's DR650 became a rooster monster after his big bore job! can't have those DR650s showing up the high tech eurotrash big bores coming on this ride...
