Trip Advice

Postby Varkenjaab » Thu Nov 09, 2017 8:50 pm

Hi all,

In the midst of planning our annual 4 day ride in January.......leaving Sydney for Wauchope, then Armidale then..........After some advice on where to from Armidale.....one more night then back to Sydney on day 4. There's 4 of us on R1200GS's. Like dirt roads but after last years efforts, not dirt TRACKS.....long ugly story there :crazy:

Any help would be appreciated, including accommodation recommendations.......no camping just simple 3 star stuff, as long as a pub/club is within easy walking distance.

Not asking for too much is it?? :pray:

Cheers,

Geoff

Hi Geoff
From Armidale, Id head to Kingston, Warrabah, Woods Reef, Barraba, then Burindi Rd, Spion Kop to Boggabri, Gunnedah, Curlewis, Breeza, Caroona, Quirindi then maybe across to Nundle via Wallabadah or Tamworth.
Its a great dirt touring route.

In fact, Id better plan to do it again soon :D

Cheers

Thanks heaps. I was hoping you'd reply.........I follow your RR's with great interest as you always have some great pics of your trips and have always chosen a some quality roads. :thumb:

Now to plot the path on Google Maps and hopefully download to the Garmin. :confused:

No worries, yell out if you need clarification.
I always use Basecamp and tracks though, makes life easier and they wont be rerouted by your device like routes can be and they can be shared without changing.

Back safe & sound. Appreciate the advice 1cb. First two days were great - up to Wauchope via Singleton & Gloucester, then to Armidale via Crescent Head, Kempsey, Bellbrook. We had to deviate a little on day 3 due to a rider down (at very low speed) on Spion Kop - he lost it on a sharp right and lost all confidence so back tracked to Barraba and headed on a more direct route to Gunnedah. Yesterday we decided to just slab it all the way home due to the heat (was planning over Barringtons etc).

Bloody Gods country out there.

Look forward to reading your next RR for ideas :ear:

Cheers,

Geoff
